Kevin was educated in Washington, D.C. and received his G.E.D. at Keystone Job Corps in Drum, Pennsylvania. At the early age of about 11, Kevin began to show his great passion for music likely following the steps of his father. By age 13, Kevin had already begun making his own songs. Kevin was outgoing and loved to talk. Kevin was always the life of the party and well known in the neighborhood that he loved, Minnesota Avenue. Kevin worked in the Construction and Landscaping fields, he was employed at T.S.G. based in D.C. Kevin was a devoted father to eight children.

The first group that Kevin was part of, Inna Madness, was with his best friend Nate, "a.k.a." Nay, Kenya, Black B, Sammy Bravo and Buggz.
