Influenced by artists such as JAY Z, Meek Mill, and Drake, KIU began recording in high school at the age of 16, magnifying his upbringing in Brooklyn while chronicling North Philadelphia street life. His debut effort, Winners Worry About Winning, arrived in late 2017. The following year would see numerous singles, as well as a tease of his forthcoming project which is set to release in 2019.
KIU is known for his lyricism, versatility, and ability to uplift the youth through his music. Building his own movement and brand - the independent artist and business mind is showing why he's here to stay as he continues to climb the ranks.
