Bio

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF "HOOD KINGZ".

FIRST OFF WE HAVE KNO-KNO BORN DECEMBER 19, 1983 ON THE WEST SIDE OF LORAIN,OHIO. RAISED IN LEAVITT HOMES SECOND CHILD OF LINDA TURNER. HIS MOM KNEW HE WAS BORN FOR GREATNESS, BUT WHO'S MOTHER DOESNT SAY THAT ABOUT THERE CHILDREN. AVID BASEBALL PLAYER AT THE AGE OF 8 LIFE WAS GREAT UNTIL HIS FATHER WAS SENT TO A VERY LONG VACATION AT THE AGE OF 12 AND THINGS JUST WENT SOUTH FROM THERE. SINCE THEN HE HAD TO BECOME THE MAN OF THE HOUSE, SO AT A YOUNG AGE HE HAD TO GROW UP FASTER THAN HE WANTED TO. BY THE AGE OF 13 THE WAY FOR KNO-KNO TO STAY OUT OF TROUBLE WAS MUSIC. SOME OF HIS FAVORITE ARTIST INCLUDE TUPAC, BIGGIE, JAY-Z, KRS ONE, AND RUN DMC. THEY INSPIRED HIM TO TRY AND BECOME A HOUSEHOLD NAME AND BY THE AGE OF 15 HE RECORDED HIS FIRST SONG " THINGS AIN'T THE SAME". HE KNEW THAT HE NEEDED A FOUNDATION FOR HIS MUSIC, IN DOING SO HE HAS BECOME NOT ONLY A SKILLED EMCEE, BUT A COMPOSER OF MUSIC AND A SKILLED STUDIO ENGINEER.

SECOND WE HAVE BOOGIE.
BORN IN DAYTON,OHIO, BUT RAISED IN DETROIT,MICHIGAN MADE HIS JOURNEY TO LORAIN COUNTY IN 2007. SON TO CARLA JOHNSON HE TOO KNEW HE WANTED MORE WITH HIS LIFE. NOT ONLY IS BOOGIE AN EMCEE HE IS A VOCALIST AS WELL MIXING AND BLENDING BOTH RAP AND VOCALS IN HIS MUSIC. WHAT MADE HIM WANT TO DO MUSIC WAS WHEN HIS FRIEND "M-DOT" INFLUENCED HIM TO PICK UP A PEN AND A PAD AND JUST WRITE WHAT WAS ON HIS MIND. IT WASNT TILL HE MET UP WITH KNO-KNO YEARS LATER THAT EVERYTHING CAME INTO PLAY. INFLUENCES INCLUDE ARTIST LIKE R. KELLY, JAY-Z, BOBBY BROWN, TANK, AND JODECI. SINGING HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PASSION FOR HIM. HAVING THE FREEDOM OF CREATIVITY, ALLOWING PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO FEEL WHAT HE FEELS.

LASTLY WE HAVE TRIPLE-O BETTER KNOWN AS TRIP BORN NOVEMBER 3, 1980 IN OBERLIN ,OHIO TO KATHY AND HARRY STEVENSON THEY LATER MOVED TO ELYRIA, OHIO TO LIVE IN WILKES VILLA. THREE YEARS LATER THEY MOVED TO THE EASTSIDE OF LORAIN. LIVING IN POVERTY HE GREW UP IN THE STREETS UNTIL HIS FATHER CAME HOME FROM A LENGHTY VACATION IN 1992. THEY LIVED IT UP FOR A FEW YEARS AND THINGS WERE LOOKING WELL TILL THINGS WENT SOUR AND GOOD OL' DAD WAS GONE AGAIN, SO BACK TO ELYRIA THEY WENT. NOW HE HAS A SON OF HIS OWN AND HE DOES THIS MUSIC FOR HIM AND HIS FAMILY. INFLUENCES INCLUDE GROUPS LIKE MOB STARS, LOX, AND TUPAC CAUSE THEY WAS FROM THE HOOD. 8 BALL & MJG CAUSE THEY PIMP HARD, AND LASTLY PRESIDENT OBAMA FOR BEING THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT. SEEING HOW THEY SUCCEED MAKES ME WANNA WORK HARD AND BE SUCCESSFUL.

ALL THREE CAME FROM DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE STREETS. SOME GOOD, SOME BAD, MAYBE EVEN UGLY, BUT TOGETHER THEY BECOME AN INFLUENCE THAT CAN CHANGE THE WORLD. THIS IS HOOD KINGZ.. "WHO YOU GOIN' HOME WITH"
