rude boy magazine

De’Ante Maurice Brown or better known as Ku3st was raised in Chicago, Illinois by his young mother and grandmother. He graduated from T.F. South High School and is currently enrolled at the Illinois Institute of Art Chicago majoring in advertising. Ku3st started rapping at the age of 13, becoming serious at the age of 17. He first started out as a spoken word artist performing at his school’s annual Poetry Slam his freshman year all the way up to his senior year which he won. He won his way into P.O.E.T (People Of Extraordinary Talent), a Chicago based poetry group for teens his junior year of high school. The group would tour all over the Chicago area. His music inspirations come from 80s and 90s hip hop artist such as Tupac, KRS One to current artist in the industry such as J Cole and Wale, which explains where he gets his sound from. Coming from a city where lyricists do not get the shine as much, he still strives towards his goals, not taking no for an answer.
