Born in 1992, KJD grew up on the east side of Detroit, MI. Never having a father figure in his life, James grew to be the man he is today on his own. Writing his first rhyme at the age of 13, he has been with a pen and pad ever since. James actually started with poetry, then made the transition to rap. He gets his inspiration only from the coldest and most lyrical rappers to touch the mic, which has transformed him into a force to be reckoned with.
