K-Major was born and raised in Cartersville, GA where his curiosity and love for the art of music blossomed into the massive force it is today.

Each sense of technique, rhythm and inclined musical aptitude that builds and set ablaze like wild fires when he works, is in some way or another courtesy of K-Major’s childhood.
