Kim, Miami-born Rapper.

Kim, A Miami native began making music a few years after his father Stephon, committed suicide in 2009. Growing up in the rough streets of Dade-County his mother chose to relocate the family to Orlando. It was there that he created and released his first project ‘The Polymath' which received much praise from the hip-hop community. This led to Kim opening for many other established artists. Kim followed this up with his debut EP 'Seeking Forever' gaining international recognition. Due to Kim's damagingly relentless rap style, which segues effortlessly into melodic cadences, Kim and his Better Forever approach to music has propelled him into the conversation of being one of rap futures best. With his willingness to bare soul, channeled through substance and truth, Kim's music is nothing short of being eerily addictive.
