Kegan Morides also known by his stage name - KG, is a young music Producer and Hip Hop Artist. He first realized he had a passion for music at the age of 11 when he assisted his father, himself a DJ, with his mixes and performances. This would lay down the foundation for what was to come.
Kegan fell in love with Hip-Hop/Rap music and began song writing at the age of 13. A year later he recorded his first demo CD and released it to family and friends. Shortly after releasing the CD, he appeared on Good Hope FM, dropping a freestyle and made it known to "his Mother City" that he was serious about his music career.
While in school he and his cousin created Disrupt Music Group, a Record Label to showcase authentic and insane South African music. He would become their first artist - KG.
Kegan, being the humble rapper that he is appears to have a reflective, sometimes dark, somtimes upbeat rapping style and isn't afraid to make his feelings and opinions on society known. His message is still one of positivity though, citing that people can rise above their circumstances and what others' write them off to. Using creativity, mad producing skills and a unique lyrical writing style, he has managed to come up with a sound that is both unique and different in it's own right.
He believes his Hip-Hop influences to be Tupac Shakur, Drake and Eminem and sights Dr. Dre, Pharell Williams and Kanye West as exemplar producers in the industry. Being a producer he often releases a random Trance, House or Electro track just for the for the love of it.
He is very proud to be a South African artist and doesn't shy away from telling the world he originates in Cape Town. This is embodied in his Record Label and their "#CPTStand Up" Movement where he encourages Cape Town to "Stand Up" and let the world know we are here and have some of the best musical minds of our time.
