Brown began his musical journey in the small town of Cartersville, GA; just 40 miles northwest of Atlanta. At age 15, Brown signed his first record deal with Blackshield Entertainment, based out of Atlanta, GA, and worked alongside producers Fatboi and Shawty Redd, and songwriter/artist Kalenna (formerly of Diddy-Dirty Money). A few years later, Brown aka “K-Swag” and the label parted ways allowing him to set his sights on larger horizons. Brown eventually changed his stage name from K-Swag to K-Major, an ode to his favorite octave on the musical scale and a constant reminder of his first love: music. In 2010, as a student of the Art Institute of Atlanta, Brown established his own record label and publishing company, 3MG Entertainment (MasterMinds Music Group).
Following the success of multiple releases including his first single “My Song” off of the self-entitled mixtape The MAJORity Rules, K-Major discontinued his studies and began to pursue a full time career in music. After reaching the national spotlight with live performances on BET’s 106 & Park Wild-Out-Wednesday and BET’s Blaze the Stage, his music began to spread throughout the country. K-Major also tacked on multiple accolades landing song placements on BET’s series The Game, VH-1’s Hit the Floor, ABC’s Lincoln Heights, and the WWE film Knuckleheads. After signing a recording contract with Redzone Entertainment/Capitol Records, K-Major hit the ground running releasing controversial singles “Smashin” and “A lot of Cash” feat Young Thug off of his album iMJVOR. In 2014, upon his release from Capitol Records, K-Major signed a co-publishing agreement with Redzone Entertainment and Kobalt Music Publishing.
Since then, K-Major has racked up an impressive body of music working alongside the Grammy Award winning duo, The Dream and Tricky Stewart, and contributing to songs by major R&B, Hip-Hop, and Pop artists such as French Montana (co-producer “Moses” feat Chris Brown and Migos), Jacquees (writer “Perfect”, co-writer/producer “Feel It” feat Lloyd & Rich Homie Quan), and Future (co-producer “Salute”). In the midst of writing and producing ground breaking hits for other artists, K-Major continues to create exciting new music for his fans. His prior releases include "A Lot of Cash" feat Young Thug (2014), a creative collaboration with DJ Spinz entitled "Pursuit of Happiness" (2014), "Free Yourself" by DJ Scream & K-Major (2015), and "Shut It Down" feat August Alsina (2015) off of his first independent album Category V (2015) currently available worldwide.
