If you like Lecrae, then you’ll probably like KB, too. His sophomore album, Tomorrow We Live, is due out on April 21 from Reach Records.
Born Kevin Burgess, KB was raised in Florida and Illinois where he had a troubled youth that began when his parents divorced when he was 8-years-old. His dark lifestyle continued through his teens, but a divine intervention led KB on the path of redemption with an early enrollment in college at 16, due to his high-level academic skills. It was during this time that KB was introduced to Christian rap, which led to his acceptance of Christ. Upon graduation from the college program, KB enrolled at Trinity College to study theology and joined a popular rap group, His Glory Alone (HGA). One of the followers of HGA was a fellow rapper and future labelmate Lecrae, and that meeting led KB joining an Acquire The Fire tour and signing with Reach Records in 2011. KB’s first national release was the EP Who Is KB? and it garnered over 30,000 downloads, followed by his first album release in 2012, Weight & Glory. Today, KB resides in Tampa, FL with his wife Michelle and their son, and serves at Living Faith Bible Fellowship Church.
