Born in Minnesota, by the name of Aaron James. Kid Kanive moved to Wisconsin at a young age. Kid was always real into the lyrical aspect of music. At the age of 11 he began freestyling at bus stops, in the lunch room, even in the class room. At the age of 15 Kid wrote and recorded his first ever song. Ever since then it has been an addiction. Kid is working not only to better his craft but to get his message heard by the masses.
