K1N6 G33 is from South East San Diego, California. He started as a local hip-hop artist in the San Diego with the release of his LP "Patiently Waiting" which independently sold thousands of copies.
K1N6 G33 been recording music since he was 12 yrs old and was apart of a Rap Crew at 15 yrs old with rappers from San Diego, Los Angeles, Long Beach, New York City and Chicago. During this era King Gee was known as Crazy C - Loc.
Eventually everyone in the group was giving an audition by "No Way Out Records" in El Cajon, California by Nick Gibson. Every artist including K1N6 G33 passed the audition with flying colors. Unfortunately, since King Gee was a minor at the time he couldn't sign the contract without his parents consent, both of his parents declined the offer.
At the age of 19 yrs old after the release of his LP "Patiently Waiting" K1N6 G33 was contacted by "Sony Records". He was offered to do an audition in Oceanside, California. At this time King Gee was going by the Rap Name Domin@Quis. K1N6 G33 took the advice of his father (manager) and declined the offer.
Shortly after releasing the "Patiently Waiting" EP Version the following year, King Gee traveled to the East Coast and the Dirty South to expand his fanbase. Although he was in and out of incarceration, King Gee still manage to release a few more projects.
While living in Atlanta, Georgia he changed his name from Domin@Quis to King Gee. He performed nationwide and did features with other underground Rappers from the West Coast, Midwest, South and East Coast.
In an interview K1N6 G33 said:
"I am Not a Rapper, I am an Hip Hop Artist from the underworld (underground) expressing and sharing my message, rather it hood, historical , gangster or political it still consciousness. My music is a vessel to educate the world with Street and Book knowledge."
K1N6 G33 is continuously being contacted by A&Rs, Promoters, and even some Record Labels, but he doesn't seem to be interested in what any of them have to offer. His objected was to never be a signed artist, he disdain the Hip Hop Industry, because it is unauthentic. K1N6 G33 do this for the love of the art, not popularity. This is why in 2016 he released "I'm Not a Rapper volume 1".
According to his own words:
"I make a great living as an entrepreneur. Being an entrepreneur is more profitable than being a Rapper. Master P, Puff Daddy and Doctor Dre just to name a few used Rap as a gateway to Entrepreneurship. That where the real money at, fortunately I learned this at a very young age. As a Businessman I'm always thinking about how I can get a ROI (return on Investment)from each dollar that comes from my pocket. Music Videos are useless to me, because I can just release an audio and make the same amount of money through streaming as I will from a Music Video. The only difference between profiting from a Music Video and Audios is that your ROI from Audios will be higher, because they're more affordable to produce.
Most young Black Male from the Ghetto think the only way to attain wealth other than sports is music. However, it will cost you more money to become a famous rapper, than it will to start a business. Therefore we all will be better off being entrepreneurs instead of rappers.
Honestly, I will be ashamed to refer to myself as a Rapper, because the world thinks young Black Males can only be sports players and musicians. People don't even view Jay Z, 50 Cent, Big Boi, Nipsey Hussle and ASAP Rocky as entrepreneurs, but mere Rappers instead. I refuse to be despised in such a manner.
I have a talent in performing Lyrics and I love the art. This is really the only reason why I record music."
