K.B. Da Kidnappa
K.B. Da Kidnappa was born in Galveston, Texas, but moved to Trinity Gardens on the northside of Houston at an early age. Soon thereafter he experienced the divorce of his mother and stepfather and also experienced the struggle of being single parently raised on welfare. With his back against the wall and being between a rock and a hard place he began to earn street credibility from selling cocaine.
K.B. Da Kidnappa admits that he was influenced by the big time drug dealers from the neighborhood and even at a young age he could not resist the temptation and the lifestyle that came with the dope game. Besides selling dope he picked up a new hobby of street rapping and participating in neighborhood rap battles. He went through different neighborhoods destroying other rappers and soon became the talk of the streets.
At age sixteen K.B. Da Kidnappa joined the infamous rap group Street Military and went on to do numerous records and street classics but in the end finding out that the music business is 90% business and 10% talent. The lack of business skill and knowledge made it difficult for the group to survive through bad contracts and crooked record companies. During K.B. Da Kidnappa's Street Military years their albums were also screwed and chopped on over a dozen of the legendary DJ Screw mixtapes. He has also worked with well known artists such as Scarface, Z-Ro, Eightball & MJG, Lil' Keke, & Papa Reu just to name a few.
