Biography

Theodore Tamir Smith (born March 29th 1984 in Madison, WI) better known as K.I.N.G Kronos has being Emceeing since 1999. K.I.N.G is an acronym for Knowledge Is Never Given. Kro started perfecting his craft in the class rooms of Madison East High. Going by the moniker of the Shaolin Warriors (and heavily influenced by the Wu-Tang archetype (GZA in specific) , he joined up with homies Naferious (now Kali Arnell) and Jacks 1. He started showcasing his rhymes online in ughh.com (underground hip-hop.com) chat rooms and started writing whenever possible, spending much of the school day filling composition notebooks. While competing in a fantasy wrestling federation as a hip-hop influenced heel named the “Illmatic Escobar”, he got in to role play/rap beef with a fellow emcee named Chivalry (Death before Dishonor). Chiv introduced him to the world of netceeing and battle boards, the first of those being “The Lions Den” which was moderated by B-Hyphen, and eventually spilling over to DJ Rocks “Abyss Battle Boardz”. It would be here that Kronos would learn to place a heavy emphasis on lyrics.Key styling was a strictly visual art so weak lyrics wouldn’t have the benefit of a unique flow to augment them. No making up words or relying on an accent to rhyme. Shaolin Warriors later expanded adding: Da Lost Prophet, Golden-I and The Unfathomable Sphinx while Jacks 1 dropped out and the name was changed to Synchronized Minds. He met DJ Pain 1 and MC Starr (CrimeStarr) in 2000 and had his debut song “Ghostbanger” appear on Extortion Records “No Money Down” mixtape. It was during this time that he hit the battle and house party circuit gaining a reputation for being able to freestyle for hours about any topic named.
