Kukoo started his career at open mic sessions in New York and at various underground shows. He hooked up with the X-ecutioners’ and appeared in Slick Rick’s legendary return performance at Tramp’s NYC.
In the spring of 2000, Kukoo joined DJ Angola on tour in Europe – first stop the UK and then onto Norway. The crew performed in cities throughout England including London, Brixton, Maidstone and Briton. In Briton, the group was joined on-stage by the innovative hip-hop group underground-breakers, People Under the Stairs.
Back in the States, Kukoo had the privelege to meet and perform at the Bowery Ballroom NYC with DJ Krush. Kukoo was soon invited to record a track with Krush in Japan. The recording session produced the signature track “Krush ya Dreams”, which was the first single released on vinyl as a preview of the Insane Psycho Home album. Kukoo’s distinct and varied lyrical skills are highlighted on the Insane Psycho Home album.
Kukoo met DJ Krush in NY to record another track, Kukoo’s collaboration in the studio resulted in the highly acclaimed “Whutz da Solution?” featured on DJ Krush’s album, Zen (Sony) released in 2001. Following this second recording session together, Kukoo joined Krush on the Jag Tour that went to urban markets in Japan in 2002.

“I feel like my music is a combination of street reality, dedication, struggle and creativeness, but at the same time a good feel and a vibe to party and have fun to”, says Kukoo. He has concentrated from the start on developing his own style and it shows as word has spread about his ill flow and reputation for mad lyrical skills.
