The rapper has also gained a lot of influence on social media platforms like Instagram where he has over 205,000 followers and thousands of YouTube subscribers. His songs can also be found on SoundCloud where his fans go to listen to his song as they are being released. Moreso, Kyyngg is notable for his collaboration with other artists like the rapper Big K.R.I.T. and even his brother who goes by the stage name Prynce Montana. Read on to know all about this rising star in this piece.
The New Orleans-born rapper’s full name is Kailus James while his birth date is August 13th, 1995. His lineage can be traced to Africa, although he holds American citizenship. The identities of his parents are not known but it is confirmed that Kyyngg has 3 siblings one of whom is the rapper, Prynce Montana.
Kyyngg’s educational history also remains vague but from an interview, he revealed that his initial interactions with girls started during his high school days which indicates that at least, he obtained some sort of education. The rapper spent most of his childhood at his birthplace – New Orleans and it was during that period that he developed an interest in music as he was influenced by the songs of the American rapper, Soulja Slim and the hip-hop group, Hot Boys.
Flipping over to his career, it is no secret that the rapper is a very controversial artist which started from his name which was initially ‘Kyng’ and this happened to be the name of a brand of condom marketed by Lifestyles company. However, upon the release of his first song collection using the name, he received notice to refrain from using the moniker which made him modify the name and later ended up changing it to Kyyngg with the pronunciation as ‘King’.
Moreso, it is known that the musician is not best of friends with the rapper Birdman who even blocked Kyyngg on social media back in 2016. The reason for Birdman’s action was linked to the young artist releasing the mixtape titled Slime Season 3 on the same day Young Thug dropped his own with the same title. Kyynggs is also notorious for his endless brawls with other artists including the likes of Lil Jojo, Young Pappy and a number of others.
Who Is Kyyngg’s Girlfriend?
Like most aspects of his life, the rapper’s romantic life is also a very complicated one. He is the father of four children and it is believed that they came from his dalliance with different women whose identities remain unknown.
With regards to his present girlfriend, Kyyngg has also kept that information under wraps and the only thing he revealed sometime in March 2017 is that his girl was definitely ‘badder’ that the rapper Nicki Minaj. Moreso, some sources have it that his girl is a transgender woman but such claims have not been confirmed by the artist.
Is Kyyngg Gay Or Transgender?
Being a controversial person, Kyyngg and his brother have been described as gay in the past but in an interview with the rapper which was aired on VLAD TV, he cleared the air that he is by no means a gay man, neither is his brother. Likewise, the rumor about him being transgender is baseless and as mentioned earlier, it is Kyyngg’s mystery girlfriend who is speculated to be a transgender.
The rapper so far credits his main source of income to the proceeds from his songs which are gradually becoming popular among music lovers. Also, from the look of things, he seems to be earning pretty good sums for his work as he owns a luxurious Rolls Royce and has a net worth estimated to be $100,000.
