Personifying the classic “born to be” story, kCAne is an Artist that music just never gave up on. His mother a singer and dancer, his father a street hustler and stepfather a dj, he was never too far from hearing and being moved by the next hit to reach the masses.
A troubled childhood in the city of Saint Louis at one of it’s peaks of violence gave him plenty to speak on in his freestyles and battles with friend and foes. Signed to Cam’mar Records at 13 the call of the streets was too strong and he landed in juvie eventually for a year and a half, while there impressing the like of Trech of the Naughty by Nature group who left his number in an effort to sign kCAne upon release. During which time his parents were divorced leading him back to the streets to do the only thing he knew to help his mother stay afloat. She begged him not to, but the Leo couldnt get through to the Libra who felt he owed her for doing her best to feed and house him.
Of course this lead to prison as all these stories do, which is where he honed his skill as a writer, since before he had only freestyled, no net. He read, as he had often did growing up, to impress his mom, and to build his vocabulary. Giving the needed depth to his rhymes and added wordplay to his lyrics. Having been in many shoot outs and being shot on a few occasions he had much to say. His music while inside was cautionary. He’s out now, but the pain remains in the passion of his music.
