Being adopted, I had a bit of an "alien" mentality growing up. I felt drawn to attend the University of Pittsburgh where I learned about the negative sides of society. During college, I watched my mom go through a near death battle with cancer; this solidified Hip Hop as my passion and outlet.

At the age of 12, JK moved to Los Angeles with his family. While living in LA, JK witnessed the tension between Korean Americans and African Americans during the L.A. riots. JK, already an avid follower of hip-hop, was inspired to bridge the gap between the two ethnic cultures using his rhymes. At only 16 years old, he collaborated with Drunken Tiger member Micki Eyes and a friend, Sucram, to compete at a local hip-hop festival in 1992. He hoped that his performance as a Korean-American with other non-Koreans would relieve some of the tensions between the cultures.
