World Premiere!!! Check out my brand new music video, "Reborn".
Blake Kabage, also known as KBG, was born on January 19, 1988 in Phoenix, Arizona. As a baby, he was diagnosed with Leukemia. Fighting to stay alive, he would later be cured by the grace of god, as he has been in remission for 24 years now. He continued to spend his summers as a child at Camp Rainbow, which was a camp that was organized every summer by the Phoenix Children's Hospital, for kids with cancer and other illnesses.
As a child growing up, he begin to connect with music and acting. Continuously performing in plays, choir, band, and playing the saxophone. He also played sports his whole life including baseball, football, and wrestling. In 9th grade he wrote his first poem, where he then continued to write until this present day, not knowing one day he would enter the the world of hip hop music. His true passion in life.
In 2007, he Joined the Military, where he would later find his true passion. He Began Basic in South Carolina, AIT in Virginia, and Airborne school in Georgia. In 2008, he finally got to his first duty station, in North Carolina.
In 2012, one month before deploying on his second tour, he wrote and recorded his first track ever! After that it was on! One month later, He deployed to Afghanistan, where he spent 9 months in Jalalabad, writing and recording all year, day in and day out. Whenever he had free time off of missions or cooking, he would be in a room with his microphone hooked up, and headphone turned up. His first performance ever, was in front of his fellow soldiers, at Fob Fenty, located in Jalalabad Afghanistan. He would complete 14 tracks in 9 months, coming home to to complete his first mix tape "The Balance In Between."
Upon returning home to Ft. Carson, his home duty station, he continued to write and started to perform in the Colorado Springs area. His first show was at the union station in Colorado Springs, opening up for Scarub, from the Living Legends. He felt the high and the feeling on stage he has never felt before in life. The greatest feeling ever. So thankful for everyone who came out to support him, and for there continued support with his music.
Finally out of the service, after 6 and half years, he has been honorably discharged from the military. He now resides back home in Phoenix, Arizona, where he continues to pursue his music, go to school, and promote his brand new EP "REBORN".

A balance between life and war, expressed through hip hop music. KBG is on the Rise!
