K'wan Thomas AKA "Brillo" was born in Yonkers NY,attended Public School 5 before moving to Bridgeport,CT! Brillo. He started writing raps at a very young age,influenced by his environment and just as a way to vent,being the only boy in the house with two sisters, writing raps was his only getaway.
"Although my mother did everything she could, and with my father still living in New York and just being released from prison,I went the wrong route,ended up in jail for a good amount of time,but no matter what I was going thru,I stayed focused,always believed in myself,kept writing,but most importantly, I put God first".
Fast forward, Brillo gets released from jail, and to avoid from going back to the things he used to do, he immediately found a studio and started recording. Brillo started posting freestyles on Instagram consistently and caught the eye of Ruff Ryder's CEO Dee"The General". Dee was familiar with Brillo because they met before he went to prison. "So he reached out to me and asked, Where are you? and I said, I'm in Connecticut, he said, send me your address, I'm on my way".
Dee meet Brillo that night,they shot a video and the rest is history! His first show was at The Barclays in Brooklyn with Legends,DMX,Eve,The Lox,Swizz Beats and Drag-On. "We've done a ton of things in a short period of time,and we're getting ready to go out on the Ruff Ryder Reunion Tour in September". Brillo recently released a mixtape entitled "The General's Recruit" on DatPiff and it's doing really well. Watch Brillo's new music video "Find a way" Feat. M.A.R.
