Kassius_Brikkz, a 20 year old Brooklyn native started writing rhymes at the early age of 11, after being influenced by the late great Notorious B.I.G, Ludacris, and Eminem. Brikkz wanted to express his creativity, not taking his rhymes seriously. However, after being at a Dipset photo shoot, he had the opportunity to speak to Cam’Ron, and witnessing all the glitz and glam that surrounded them, he came to the realization that he wanted to take rapping seriously. While in high school, he met a friend who shared the same interest as him, R.I.C.O. They both were given the opportunity to join a rap group and due to certain disagreements the group separated.
Brikkz was determined to make his dream come true and as a result, he teamed up with another high-school friend Jay-D, who had a desire to become a mogul, also putting his trust and lyrical thoughts into him. With the help of Jay-D as his manager,the two found studios that allowed Kassius_Brikkz to record freestyles. By promoting his music and getting good reviews, they realized that Kassius_Brikkz had a place in the music industry. With their knowledge of the industry, they began to take steps that they thought would benefit Kassius_Brikkz’s future. Brikkz and Jay-D then decided it was time to work on a mix tape project. On November 8, 2010, "OUT THE BASEMENT" was released.
Brikkz now has a son and dealing with the hardships like the late Notorious B.I.G, he is determined to fulfill his dreams of becoming a rapper. He not only wants to make a name for himself but he also wants to make a name for his home, Bedford-Stuyvesant, located in the heart of Brooklyn, New York. Kassius_Brikkz will go the extra mile to do what he loves for the rest of his life. He will not stop until he becomes world known for his music.
