With the influence of his brother and friends, in 2010, Kubi $I grow his interest in rapping. Kubi $I decided to take full advantage of his God-given talent and launched a plan to fulfill his dreams of becoming a globally-recognized artist.
Kubi's life-long plan started with his first song “So Much”, which led him into a brief stint with 20 Entertainment (formerly an Universal Records affiliate). With 20 Entertainment, Kubi worked on his first mixtape “The Revolution”, but parted ways with the label.
In early 2011, Kubi began performing shows with his brother, rapper “Matic”. This is where Kubi started earning his rep and was asked to open for Lil Wayne in January of 2011. Soon after, Kubi had to take a partial break in his music career to finish off his senior year in high school and pursue playing basketball in college, which he was awarded a scholarship to Indiana Tech University. December 2011, Kubi started working on his first mixtape, “ Redshirt Freshmen”, which draws a parallel of being a red shirt freshmen in basketball, while being a relative new comer to the music industry, and how overlooked new artist are when they are not with a major label. In February 2012, Kubi released three tracks Dreams Money Can Buy, (Freestyle) 5’10 intro, and also the Single “Coolin” produced by D&L Productions.
“Redshirt Freshmen” mixtape dropped in March, 2012 on Dat Piff. The mixtape lead to a chain of YouTube videos, live performances in Milwaukee, Tennessee, and Illinois the generation of his Facebook and Twitter profile.
Since the development of his social media profiles and Youtube Channel, he has proven to have what it takes to satisfy the musical tastes of both U.S. and International public's through the rapid growth of his fan-base, song-play, add statistics, and profile visits in such a brief time-frame! Kubi is rapidly developing a style of his own.
