Tyson Knight aka TKO-MBE, has been involved in music since a very young age, picked up his creativety from a former blues/reggae singing mother & a soca/soul singing farther, his family heritage allows him the foundation of musical diversity, from Gospel singers, D.J's, producers, actors, models & a selection of recording artist's.
As a founding memeber of Winson Green based act 'Silent Tongue Productions' Tyson became a very popular underground artists during the late 90's, recording with anyone who possesed a musical talent, delivering a diverse selection of material which featured on various projects.
As a very modest artist most of his works were given away for no financial gain, as at the time he was recording for fun & wasnt intrested in fame or fortune, until recently when he was inspired to persue a professional music career.
'TKO' as he is now known, has been away from music to tend to his personal life & took time for personal growth, due to the tragic events surrounding his family, he was inspired to return to the one thing he loves more than anyting & has began to pump out fresh material, which he calls 'dubs', using Soundcloud & Reverbnation as promotional tools, The first project was 'The Underdog EP' & now for 2012 his 'M.U.F.C.' street album, there is more under way, so watch this space.
Tyson has many influences music wise, he loves all kinds of genres, rock, soul, D&B, bashment, revival/roots rock, gospel & soca, plus growing up with acts such as 'MSI ASYLUM' 'PROFITZ OF KNOWLEDGE' & 'MOORISH DELTA 7' on his doorstep & admiring acts such as 'London Posse' 'Klashnekoff' '57th Dynasty' & 'Tinnie Tempa' through out the years has only feed his ambitions to make his mark on the UK industry.
He is a massive fan of Westcoast Hip-Hop, seeing groups like 'NWA' breakthrough, was the time when he wanted to rap & has been following each members legacy ever since, his favorite Emcee's include acts such as 'RAKIM' 'RANX DIGGLA' '2-PAC' 'THE GAME' 'ICE CUBE' 'MALIK MD7' & 'WU-TANG CLAN'.
Just showing some BBW love, a love song inspired....its all love!
TKO is not your average rapper he fuse's spoken word, poetry & rapping to get his story across, his lyrics reflect the life he lives & he has an integrity that is rarely seen today, as he has said on many occasions he is "an old skool n**ga"...keeping it real isnt just a slogan its a way of life.
