Bio

KP Da Money Maker, born Michael Pierre, grew up with one thing in mind?to get out of the South Florida hood. In 2001, and at an early age, KP signed his first entertainment deal with a local label called "S.P Entertainment." KP soon left the label and joined his older brother and neighborhood friends to form a group called "G.Y.Bs." The group soon broke up after not being able to work togther and left KP a free agent, but he quickly got picked up by another up-and-coming record label called "Playhouse Records. With the new lable" Da Money Maker released his first official compilation called "Life is a Struggle'" with Playhouse and he soon became the face of the label, which led to traveling with New Orleans rapper and superstar Juvenile and his UTP click and to recording several collaborative works such as "Around My Way" with Skip (of UTP) and "Do What You Do" with Wacko (of UTP). Unfortunately, in 2001, and at the heights of his newfound career, the street life caught up to him and KP Da Money Maker was arrested and was facing 15-25 years in a state correctional facility.

KP was released from the Broward County jail system shortly after his 21st birthday but he found himself without a label to call home. So he decided to take matters into his own hands by calling some close friends and partners-in-crime to start their own record label, which he called "All-In Records." Da Money Maker and his partners soon printed over 15,000 mixtapes titled "No Longer Waiting" and they distributed about 5,000 in Broward/ Dade County, as well as 10,000 in New York City. In the summer of 2005, KP performed at the annual Bushwick Festival in Brooklyn, NY for an audience of over 8,000 people. Thanks to the increasing buzz, his mixtape got into the hands of Diplomat Records CEO Jim Jones, who took an interest in this young lyricist by taking him to various recording sessions. KP later opened up for Jim Jones in NY at Club Exit for a crowd of over 2,000. After numerous public appearances with Jim Jones and the Bird Gang in Miami, rumors spread that KP was signed to Diplomat Records. In early 2006, KP was featured on reggaeton star and Sony recording artist Toby Love's single "Stripper Pole." Following the success of his first mixtape, KP and his label took his second official mixtape, "Down South Rep. Vol. 1" to push in Atlanta, where they met with So So Def recording artist Sunny and with Boyz N Da Hood member Big Gee, and KP recorded the smash hit "True to It" featuring Big Gee and Big Duke.
