The Real Kobe Red
Kobe Red, born Kobia Redd, was born August 5, 1997 in Boston, MA. Kobe fell in love with music at a very young age, growing up listening to “drill” music, gaining inspiration from hip hop legends like G Herbo, Young Pappy, Tupac Shakur, and Lil Wayne. After being involved in a shooting incident at age 19, Kobe decided to use music as therapy for his anger and to provide the same for those who share his same emotions. Kobe’s motivation come from his mother. Seeing her struggle to raise him has influenced his ultimate goal. Kobe plans to make a change in his community and others by investing in community centers, 24-hour gyms, and studios for the youth.
