K-Hill
K-Hill
K-Hill (born Kelvin Hill), CEO of "Kick-A-Verse" Production Group was born in Wilson, North Carolina but currently calls Durham home. Known as one of North Carolina's most talented Emcee/Producer's, K-Hill began his rise in the music scene at the age of 16 when he started producing music. After choosing Hip Hop as his main genre of focus, he soon began writing lyrics. As his skills developed, his natural talent took over and he quickly became known for his vocal consistency, raw enthusiasm on stage and demonstrative lyrics on the mic. These strong attributes continue to carry over into his current music.

With Hip Hop being a way to express oneself, K-Hill is a master at using real life experiences incorporated into his verses to draw the people to him. He has lived a life that wasn't always easy, but he has maintained the character of a man that is always striving to reach that next level. His style is east coast influenced, introspective with a southern accent. Being self-described as a super-hybrid of hiphop's golden era artist mixed with his own unique recipe, K-Hill has proven that he has the talent to succeed and has already rocked stages with KRS One, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, 9th Wonder, Raekwon and EPMD, to name a few. He has been featured in publications such as Good Magazine, Elemental Mag, HipHop Game, Hip Hop DX, All Hip Hop and Christopher "Play" Martin's Brand Newz.

2004's nationally distributed release of "Da Instigator" (Neblina Records) gained K-Hill larger exposure, but his 1st solo project, "Stamps of Approval" (Kick-A-Verse) pushed him to the forefront, especially among North Carolina's Hip Hop scene and solidified him as a serious artist. He has since released an EP titled "Memoirs of a Premature Legend" that gives listeners an idea of where he came from and why he continues to be a major force in the game lyrically and production wise. Recently, Kick-A-Verse Production Group has had most of K-Hill's focus as he develops it into a recognizable and trusted brand in the urban entertainment industry. With new projects scheduled for release in 2012, K-Hill is ready to pave his path deeper into the Hip Hop Industry.

S. Gold
S. Gold
S.GOLD (birth name Steven Lavern Cameron) was born on the south side of Raleigh, North Carolina in 1986. Having been raised in some of the roughest areas in the “Capital City” including the Vodamin Gardens and Biltmore Hills neighborhoods, Steven grew up surrounded by drugs and violence and these issues unfortunately also infiltrated his home life. His mother battled drug addiction throughout his childhood which caused him to be shifted back and forth between her and his grandparents until 1997 when his grandfather decided to maintain custody in order to ensure that he would graduate high school. His grandfather worked as a custodian at Southeast Raleigh High School where Gold attended.

Never considered one of the “cool kids” and a virtual loner in high school, Gold used poetry and music as an escape, writing poems for girls he had crushes on and even penning poems for his friends to give to their girlfriends. Music always played a significant role in his life but his musical journey officially began in the summer of 2001 while spending time at his uncle’s house who worked part time as a DJ. His uncle would play beats while Gold freestyled, trading rhymes back and forth with one of his uncle’s longtime friends. It was then that S.Gold realized he was actually a talented budding emcee.

In 2003 his close friend Marcus Short solicited Gold to pen a couple of verses for his mixtape. During that time he rapped under the moniker GD (short for Goldie, describing his complexion) and the whole school was blown away by his guest appearance on the mixtape. His classmates said he sounded like Jay-Z (one of his musical idols) and at the urging of one of his friends, GD was replaced with S.Gold after S.Carter. The name caught on quick and suddenly the kid that might have been considered an outcast, eating lunch every day with his grandfather for fear of being a target of the “cool kids” actually became one. His peers would regularly ask him to kick rhymes for them and girls would stop him in the halls to take pictures with him exclaiming “You’re going to be big!”

Later that year Marcus encouraged S.Gold to come out with his own solo project. In his junior year of high school he released his debut mixtape simply titled S.Gold. That year he also teamed up with his
classmate and good friend/brother from another Benjamin “Lazurus” Curtis and another friend, Rsonist, forming a strong production and emcee conglomerate under the name “LAZRSO Records.”

Gold flooded the school with his music garnering respect andadmiration from his peers. With his confidence at an all time high, S.Gold dropped his second project Tales From the Eastside during his
senior year and before he graduated in 2005 he released his first album with all original material under LAZRSO Records called The Vision which remains one of his favorite and most prized works. In
2007 he released two projects- The Vision: Stairway to Heaven Sent and The Vision: Heaven Sent before taking a few years off from music to handle personal issues. Gold returned to the music scene full force in 2010, releasing his most notable project to date called The Forecast. He was also a contributor to the successful underground project The Millie Tape released in 2011 also under LAZRSO Records.

S.Gold has shared the stage with some of hip-hop’s underground giants including Kooley High, Sean Boog, Nervous Wreck, Mic Savvy and a host of other artists. One of the fondest memories of his rap career is freestyling live on the air with the Justus League’s Chaundon. Gold has appeared on North Carolina State University’s college radio station WKNC 88.1 several times throughout the years and his music is in regular rotation. He is a staple in the Raleigh-Durham hip-hop scene and is embraced by veteran emcees and newcomers alike not only because of his lyrical prowess but also because of his professionalism, his sincerity and by being an all-around great guy. By increasing his digital footprint with social media and doing more shows outside of North Carolina Gold intends to continue to expand his name and his brand, further perfecting his craft in pursuit of his dreams. His next project, The Storm, is slated for release sometime in 2012, exact date TBA.
