BK started his career in music as a ghostwriter for his sister and her rap group. He also helped out directing their concerts, as well as participating in their shows. The group did rather well, opening for the likes of Rah Digga, Redman & Method Man, Trina, and Jay-Z.
At the time, BK, from Detroit, Michigan, was employed by a local independent record label, and although the girls went on to do more shows, they weren’t able to release any of their music, and the label went out of business. BK however seized the moment, and decided his time had come, to become an artist in his own name. His time behind the scenes taught him that the music industry is a cut-throat business, and so rather than entrust his music into the hands of just anyone, in addition to composing and performing his own songs, he launched his own label, Paystyle Records. Within a short time, the label released several national mixtapes, with “Time Is Money The Mixtape” being one of the most successful. His music was recently featured on “Bridging The Gap MixTape Vol. 3 with Dave East hosted by 91.8 WeOnRadio & Coast2Coast dj “DJ InfTheTurnUp”! BK also has three new hit singles, “No Pain” , “Stick Ya Self”, & his newly released record “HATE”, currently in rotation, generating quite a buzz and are establishing a nice foundation for the masterful emcee’s growing fanbase. With BK’s hit music video “No Pain” being featured on the front page of “DonDivaMagazine” for the entire month of September 2017, He also appeared in WON Magazine of New York. Along with his recent appearances on WorldStarHipHop, ThisIs50, Bridging The Gap vol. 3 mixtape with a host of Mainstream artists such as 50Cent, Dave East, Jada Kiss, and many more.., BK has amassed thousands of views, streams and fans in support of his music via his social media platforms especially his Twitter, Instagram, Facebook & YouTube Channel. On top of that he just finished a tour performing in three cities doing six shows on the road with his label mates. And most recently received the award of video of the year for “No Pain” by New York’s own radio station 91.8 fm !
With the mantra of Paystyle Records being they produce and perform music that will entertain and nurture the hearts and souls of fans, BK’s track, ‘No Pain’, is a fitting song for the label. The first lines, “Being independent…we go through trials and tribulations…ups and downs. But at the end of the day, it all equivelate out to one thing…No Pain No Gain!”
The video accompanying the song, directed by Boodang, shows that nothing can be achieved without hard work. Whether it be in the boxing ring, or on the track, or in business, or a dream to become a doctor – in everyone is a desire to be seen and heard, and it takes effort to get there.
‘No Pain’ is a very positive and encouraging song, and tells that there’s no easy way to get to the top, and is in effect a condensed history of BK’s career.
