KING LOS (LIVE) – KELOWNA Details
ELEMENT EVENTS PRESENTS:
KING LOS w/ DIZZY + BDICE
As a 16-year-old high school student, Los, began writing poetry and literature to deal with the pain of losing his father to murder. Right out of high school in 2002, Los auditioned for Diddys Making the Band 2, but after being selected to appear on the show, he refused to sign any of the paperwork required, so he was unable to appear on it. As fate would have it, Los would end up signed to Bad Boy Records in 2005, through Bloc Incorporated a local Baltimore record label. His signing to Bad Boy came after he auditioned for Diddy with a 10-minute freestyle. However, Bloc Incorporated eventually disbanded due to a legal issue and Los lost his deal in 2008, before he was able to release an album. Once he returned independent in 2008, Los released a number of mixtapes and online freestyles in the following years to build his buzz.
On July 18, 2011, Los released a mixtape titled Worth the Wait, mostly made of tracks cut from his upcoming mixtape. On December 5, 2011, Los released The Crown Aint Safe. It was met with positive critical reception upon release. Following the release of The Crown Aint Safe, there was something of a bidding war to sign Los by multiple labels. He was then nominated for XXLs 2012 Freshman 10 list. On February 6, 2012, Diddy announced to MTV that his newest signee to Bad Boy Records was Los. Right after the announcement he begun working on his debut mixtape for Bad Boy. The mixtape Becoming King was released on April 25, 2013, as his first project released since his return to Bad Boy Records. It was met with generally positive reviews from music critics. On August 13, 2013, Los released a freestyle over the controversial Control song. Kendrick Lamar would shortly after praise Los response as the best one released.
On December 25, 2012, Los girlfriend, rapper Lola Monroe announced that she and Los were expecting their first child together. She then gave birth to a baby boy named Brixton Royal Coleman on March 12, 2013.
