Biography

Kool Savas (formerly King Kool Savas (KKS), Juks, born February 10, 1975 in Aachen) is a German rapper of Turkish descent. His real name is Savas Yurderi.

Musical career:
Savas’ career began with the recording Warum rappst du? (“Why do you rap?”). He gained attention with controversial lyrics in songs like Schwule Rapper (“Gay Rappers”), LMS (Lutsch mein’ Schwanz, “Suck my dick”), and Pimplegioneah. Initially Savas rapped in English in groups like the Basic Elements. He became more successful in bands such as M.O.R. und Westberlin Maskulin together with the underground-rapper Taktloss. In 2001 he left his recording firm Put Da Needle To Da Records and the group M.O.R. itself because of personal and artistic differences.

In 2002 he released his first solo album Der beste Tag meines Lebens (The best day of my life) with his own recording company begun in the same year, Optik Records. He worked with many German and international artists including Azad, Curse, Moses Pelham, Samy Deluxe, RZA, J-Luv, Lumidee, Bligg, Jadakiss, Xavier Naidoo, and Smut Peddlers.

With his recording firm, he sought to build up and promote a number of artists, including for example Eko Fresh whom he discovered. Currently the following artists are under contract: DJ Nicon, Melbeatz, Ercandize, Caput, and Amar. The contract with the rapper SD ended because of musical differences and he left followed by his friend Spontan. At the moment Savas’ little brother Sinan is also under contract.
