Being a military kid it was hard for Mystery Known to fit in with the cool kids lead alone in any popular group in school. At age 11 Mystery Known began to write rhymes about what it was like to be an everyday kid growing up in his world. Being raised in the church, MK had a foundation of God and faith in his life, however, it wasn't until the stabbing of his cousin that he realized that there was something more to life than the streets. Formerly known as Murderis Kat for his lyrical ability, Mystery Known began to write rhymes about his faith in God as well as his life experiences. Winning several talent shows while in the military, MK began to realize that his ability to rhyme was bigger than him and that it was an opportunity to reach the nations with a message of hope.
