There’s Kelvin Mitchell, who by day, was an academic standout and basketball phenom, and there’s K.Mitch, the street-savvy rapper who came out swinging at night and found himself in and out of trouble pretty easily.
Born in San Bernardino, CA, Kelvin’s parents both also found trouble easily, and he was raised by his grandmother in Houston with no access to his folks. His grandmother instilled a strong sense of responsibility in Kelvin, and as he recounts he learned “not to use negative circumstances to excuse negative behavior.”
In 2007, Kelvin entered the University of Denver on a basketball scholarship. A member of the team was signed to Shervin Bunch’s label Wazdown Records and brought Kelvin to the studio, and that’s where K.Mitch was born.
