Beginning as solo artists and both hailing from the west side of Chicago, the Heavy Steppers met through mutual friends in the rap game and immediately bonded over a shared admiration for each other’s music. Blending SBG Kemo’s raw storytelling and Ke Millie’s unique lyrical delivery, the two quickly recognized a hit sound and knack for making good music together. After debuting their single “Heavy Steppers” in 2019 and calling for a Heavy Steppers Challenge, the duo sat back and watched social media explode. Spawning over 300,000 tagged videos on TikTok, “Heavy Steppers” soon became more than just a song, and SBG Kemo and Ke Millie were set upon a fast-moving journey straight to the top.
