Born and raised in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1975, Maurice Jones, better known by his stage name “KILO M.O.E.” is an American Rapper. He is also a National Level Bodybuilder and Personal Trainer. He was coined “KILO M.O.E” due to his popularity and fame on the streets of Topeka, Kansas. This artist got his nickname “KILO” from his infamous street time in Topeka and M.O.E. stands for “Money Over Everything”.
In 1997, KILO M.O.E was arrested on Federal Drug Charges and sentenced to 5 years. He was released in 2002 to Baltimore and was very fortunate to have the unwavering support of his family. He tried on many occasions to establish himself as an independent artist but with little success.
In mid 2002, KILO M.O.E decided to utilize his other skills to establish a career as a National Level Bodybuilder and Personal Trainer while still striving hard to make connections in the music industry. He won multiple awards both in the Maryland NPC and Florida.
In 2012 after being sidelined by a sports injury, he went through a deep depression and decided to buy some used studio equipment. He then started recording again posting music online as a hobby.
In June 2013, Kilo M.O.E was eager to make more contacts in the music industry reaching out to Island Def Jam Recording Artist "Young Offishall" for his debut Single "Hu$tle Time" which is gaining national acclaim.
KILO M.O.E has been performing on and off for over 20 years and has a very credible resume outlining his vast experiences both in several businesses as well as on the streets.
KILO M.O.E has dropped 3 mixtapes and has been working on his fourth since he decided to start recording again using the internet as a springboard to help him gain a greater degree of recognition and exposure. His fourth mixtape titled "Globetrottaz Exclusive" is now currently available.
The song I am reviewing today is Show which is the first single from the upcoming Globetrottaz Exclusive LP.
The solid, dope, catchy, up-tempo beats start to kick in after the first 14 seconds of this song and as soon as Kilo M.O.E starts to rap, I am feeling it. The emotion, intensity and energy he has for his music really shines through and I can tell he is 100% at ease when he starts to rap. This is what he absolutely loves to do and he shows the world how he feels through his music. His music has pride of place in his heart and soul and massively influences his daily life.
