Julian Lamont Lowe, the rap artist now known to many as Kilo TheArtist or K.T.A. was born in the small town of Buckner, Arkansas. His venture into the business of becoming a rapper began approximately five or six years ago. Admittedly, his career has been a struggle to balance his life as an artist with his duties as a member of the U.S. Army. Kilo clarifies that he values the experiences and friends he has gained in the military. Although things can get hectic from time to time for this high-energy performer, he is dedicated to achieving his dreams.
K.T.A. considers himself a voice for those like himself, providing strength and encouragement through his lyrics and increasing success. He is a shining example of why no one should stop, but keep forging ahead, despite all setbacks. It is Kilo’s hope that others can look to his ability to embrace what life had dealt him and be inspired to keep moving forward with their dreams.
Kilo’s music is unique in that it can be described in terms of sounding “like poverty, the struggle, power, happiness, sadness and hope, all in one.” He uses his storytelling abilities to deliver a message that emanates from within. His experiences as an activist and having grown up in the lower-class system in America play heavily into his music and his vision for the future.
Currently, Kilo is busy honing his music while doing shows across Europe. He has put out two mixtapes in less than a year – Illuminated and Illuminated 2 have already received outstanding results. He and his team continue to push hard to get his music into the hands of DJs, radio stations and many other platforms to increase the recognition he feels it deserves.
