Kendricke “K-Major” Brown has become one of the most sought after writers and artists in the game. Proving to be a man of many talents, the 25 year-old songwriter, producer, and entertainer has penned, produced, and performed for some of the biggest names in urban and pop music. K-Major’s heartfelt melodies mixed with southern 808’s allow him to passionately express insinuations of love versus lust, pain versus pleasure, and most of all, failure versus success. K-Major’s genre bending and blending brand of genius is a testament to his larger than life persona and there is still more magic to come.
Born March 9, 1991, Kendricke D. Brown began his musical journey in the small town of Cartersville, GA; just 40 miles northwest of Atlanta. At age 15, Brown signed his first record deal with Blackshield Entertainment, based out of Atlanta, GA, and worked alongside producers Fatboi and Shawty Redd, and songwriter/artist Kalenna (formerly of Diddy-Dirty Money). A few years later, K-Swag and the label parted ways allowing him to set his sights on larger horizons. Brown eventually changed his stage name from K-Swag to K-Major, an ode to his favorite octave on the musical scale and a constant reminder of his first love: music.
In 2010, as a student of the Art Institute of Atlanta, Brown established his own record label and publishing company, 3MG Entertainment (MasterMinds Music Group). Following the success of multiple releases including his first single “My Song” off of the self-entitled mixtape The MAJORity Rules, K-Major discontinued his studies and began to pursue a full time career in music. After reaching the national spotlight with live performances on BET’s 106 & Park Wild-Out-Wednesday and BET’s Blaze the Stage, his music began to spread throughout the country. K-Major also tacked on multiple accolades landing song placements on BET’s series The Game, VH-1’s Hit the Floor, ABC’s Lincoln Heights, and the WWE film Knuckleheads.
After signing an artist deal with Redzone Entertainment/Capitol Records, K-Major hit the ground running releasing controversial singles “Smashin” and “A lot of Cash” off of his album iMJVOR. In 2015, upon his release from Capitol, K-Major signed a co-publishing agreement with Redzone Entertainment and Kobalt Music Group. Since then, K-Major has racked up an impressive body of music working alongside the Grammy Award winning duo, The Dream and Tricky Stewart, and contributing to songs by major R&B, hip hop, and pop artists such as French Montana (“Moses” featuring Chris Brown and Migos), Jacquees (“Perfect,” “Feel It” featuring Lloyd & Rich Homie Quan), and Jacob Latimore (“Yo Boyfriend”). In the midst of writing ground breaking hits for other artists, K-Major continues to create exciting new music for his fans with mixtapes such as The Greatest Show on Earth (2012), Turbulence (2013), The Game Changer(2013), Pursuit of Happiness (2014), and Category V (2015) currently available on datpiff.com, livemixtapes.com, and iTunes.
