Killa was raised on the notorious Killa FEastside of South Los Angeles. As early as age 10 KILLA discovered his ability to describe the world around him through rapping. Propelled by artists such as Snoop Dogg, Biggie, 2Pac and Nas, KILLA honed his skills from elementary through high school.
His intensity and dedication did not go unnoticed. KILLA was so determined to record his rhymes that he petitioned for the music department at his alma mater (LA's historic George Washington Preparatory High School) to build a recording studio where he could produce and record. Ultimately, a studio was built and KILLA's recording history began.
As music and fashion trends evolved from traditional rap and baggy jeans, in the 90s to pop fused rap and skinny jeans, in the new millennium, KILLA music evolved as well. Tracks like "I'm Giggin" and "Don't Drop That Thun Thun!" embody the party music that drives the Los Angeles based "jerk movement" (for lack of a better word) which has inspired a few of KILLA most recent recordings, but at the end of the day KILLA is a top-notch MC and his bars(lyrics) are amazing.
