Growing up in Chicago wasn't half bad coming up as a kid, you see things and hear things, but continued with what you were doing as a kid. Most memorable times for Kelvin "K9" Ternoir, was growing up in the Jeffery Manor Projects on 106th and Oglesby alone with his three cousins, and at the time four other siblings.
Attending Orville T. Bright School, K9 was always the funny child in the family, great sense of humor, but then again very quiet. With a older cousin Tyrone "L7" Ternoir who actually mentored K9 (who was then known as K-Dog) into actually writing songs, and free styling.
That was back in the early 90's. As time went by and different opportunities came outside of music, K9 sort of drifted away with music due to the life styles him and his family faced. Until that calling came back in 2002.
Posing as a solo artist, in time will guide up and coming artist such as A.T, Dollo, and producers to follow his vision to form an empire.
Which the vision is still in effect.
