Bio

HOUSTON, TX - Lock From Da Block (25) is an up-and-coming recording artist who is known for his freestyles. His lyrics cover Houston culture and all the lean-filled styrofoam cups, beautiful women, and street life stories any true hip-hop fan would love.

Kenneth Charles Lockett Jr., P/K/A LockFromDaBlock is a native of a small country town called Silsbee, TX aka SmokeTown! He grew up in the church playing the organ and the keyboard. Lock got into rap music as early as 4th grade where he wrote his first bars. By junior high, Lock was known for his freestyle ability and he had started his own group called the 2raw Click which developed a local buzz by the time he was midway through highscool.

When LockFromDaBlock attended college he took a hiatus before jumping back into the music business with his new imprint, Money Junkie Gang, and his growing reputation for being a solid hustler. Lock's deep voice and texas drawl sounds similar to artists like Lil Flip, Chamillionaire and he was heavily influenced by DJ Screw and Swishahouse in the mid/late 90's and early 2000s. Recently, Lock has worked with rapper Fat Pimp from Dallas and has put out 3 mixtapes under his SkeeTaste series and every edition has been well received. In addition to his SkeeTaste mixtapes, Lock has released a number of underground videos on YouTube and is lookin to reach a larger croud with the release of his 2013 single "Yesterday."

Lock is a very easygoing person, fun to work with, and he has a practical plan for becoming a star. LockFromDaBlock has had several blog mentions on websites such as DrankEpidemic.com, Hiphopweekly.com, freshprincehiphop.com, and more.

During his performances, he connects with the "drank-heads," "kush connoisseurs" and young bright-eyed street entrepreneurs, creating a world where the weed is potent, the women love freely, and where rules don't exist. This world is known by his fans as "Smoketown." Lock From Da Block currently operates in Houston, Texas.
