K-Rino grew up in South Park, a neighborhood in Houston, Texas. He began rapping in 1983 and by 1984 he was participating in rap battles and talent shows around the city of Houston. Two years later, he formed a group called Real Chill with two classmates, G.T. and Preppy J, and released a 12” single called “Rockin’It in 1987”. It was also in 1987 that he created the S.P.C. (South Park Coalition) which consisted of several rappers from the area, most of whom attended school with him.[

K-Rino says when he started out in the industry he was no different from most artists trying to get a record deal, but he says as his knowledge of how the industry works increased,it turned him off. He said the lack of creative control was the biggest turn off, he said "I don't like people telling me what I can or can't say..plus I like to own 100% of my work.." [3]
