Members: Killa Capone
At just the age of 23, Killa Capone (born Andre' Harper), has been all around the country rapping with the likes of Ludakris, Baby Bash, and Slim Thug, just to name a few. At the age of 5, Killa Capone was already freestyling on hand held tape recorders. It was at the age of 15 years old, that Killa started traveling back and forth from Kansas City, Kansas to Melbourne, Florida when he decided to take his music seriously. Although influenced by all types of music, when you listen to Killa Capone, its like listening to a mix of Tupac and Lil Wayne.
We were able to interview the down south born, midwest raised rapper, Killa Capone aka Mista 45 at his Naughty Fam Recording Studios, in Las Vegas, where he was finishing up his highly anticipated first solo album, 'Sinner Of Attention' which is scheduled to drop on the 4th of July, 2011.
