Kevin is a rapper, singer-songwriter, and director who often talks about his identity as a gay man and mental health in his music. As a founding member of Brockhampton, he's typically at the forefront of the group's appearances.
The Texas native got into music around age 11 and released his debut album, MTV1987, in 2014. He then followed it up with the 2016 LP American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story. While juggling his own music, he formed Brockhampton out of the disbanded AliveSinceForever in 2015. Although he assumes the role of band leader, Kevin often highlights the importance of brotherhood and teamwork within the collective.
His collaborative efforts are especially evident in Viceland's 2017 docuseries American Boyband, which followed him on his 2017 tour, Death of a Supermodel. Although he was performing to promote MTV1987 and American Boyfriend: A Suburban Love Story, he continued to spread the word about Brockhampton, prioritizing the band over his solo career.
Fun fact: Some of his biggest influences include Kanye West, Frank Ocean, Kid Cudi, Future, and Tyler, the Creator.
