Biography

ICMG/2 Deep – Co-CEO

Recording Artist, Lyricist, Ghost Writer, Musical Mentor, Lyrical Teacher, and Rap Game Entrepreneur   - THIS IS KONY BROOKS – King Of NY

 

Born in the 90's as Andre Brooks and raised straight from Southern Blvd. in the Boogie Down Bronx, a young multi-talented artist who goes by the name of KONY (King Of New York) BROOKS is on his journey to take over the music industry. At the tender age of 7 is when Andre (KONY) wrote his first rhyme for a school project in first grade. Not taking it seriously at the time, he left it alone until the age of 11 and as Andre grew older, he began to notice he wanted to take music seriously.

In high school KONY became more active in his craft. It was an added plus that his High School was involved with Hip-Hop culture and KONY joined a program that directly associated him with three other rappers that became "Tha Works Records" which included KONY and a poetic mentor, named Jive Poetic. Jive helped mold KONY from being a normal mixtape artist to being an all-around artist in general.  At age 16, KONY Brooks & Zay Rhymes decided to officially make themselves a group called "The Almighty Renegades". Back then it included KONY, Zay Rhymes, and a female artist known as "Amazin".

 

KONY went on to create Inner City Music Group LLC (ICMG) in 2014. In 2015 KONY linked with Teddy Grahams owner of Divisions of 2 Deep LLC  to create the collective now known as ICMG/2 Deep. KONY has worked with Indie Artists such as Zay Rhymes, SNS (Icy Gang), and Persia to name a few. With a new vision and hunger of True School Hip Hop, KONY Brooks is making strides to take over the music industry.
