KB the Boo Bonic is a female emcee, raised in Houston but now living in Austin Texas.
She started rapping over 10 years ago amidst the mix of her friends on the turntables and blunts and beers. As she sharpened her chops as a freestyle rapper and gained recognition as a viable opponent at house parties and local events, she moved off to pursue a college degree at the University of Texas and later at Texas State in San Marcos.
KB returned to her roots as a writer and set out to pen and record her first studio album. While finishing her college education, the Boo Bonic worked with producer Bad Boy Ben to compile her first release, Scars Are Sexy. The femcee made sure to leave no doubts in listeners minds that she was Dirty South born and bred by enlisting the help of well-known Texas producer DJ Rapid Ric to mix the album.
It has that third coast sound, but with no holds barred lyrics that touch on everything from relationships to the music scene to politics. Her perspective is far from your average female artist who laments over love lost or frets over the challenges of being a woman. She gives an unapologetic perspective, intended to make the listener think and hopefully get a good laugh every once in a while.
KB started doing shows in San Marcos where she played at the Wego Tour car shows and opened for Trae and Rob G, as well as various gigs throughout the San Antonio area. In 2009 she performed at her first South By Southwest showcase in Austin during the four-day festival where she opened for Pugs Atomz, The Chicharones, Reef the Lost Cauze and GLC. She has opened for touring acts throughout her career including Raekwon, Cappadonna, Shwayze, Papa Reu, Lil Debbie, and many more. In addition to SXSW, she has been a part of a number of tours and festivals including the 35Conferette, Rock the Republic, Weird City Festival and Tour, and Ajusco Festival in Mexico City.
In 2014, KB was honored and extremely excited to join the limited number of hopeful artists who are featured on and win the All Out Show's segment, Hate it or Love it, on Shade45 on Sirius XM. As hip hop fans from the world listened to and called to weigh in on her track, "Daddy Baby", she was largely greeted with support, respect, and love for her original sound. She walked away with a win and a much appreciated affirmation that people understand her as an artist and are looking to hear authenticity and originality.
KB's sophmore project Farrah Flossitt, which features the winning track, was released in early 2015. It received acclaim from popular sites such as BRealTV, as well as local media, including the Austin Chronicle and Ovrld.
In late 2015 she released a free mixtape titled, BatSh!T, a nod to her current hometown of Austin. In early 2016 she released a single titled “U Ain’t Kno”, produced by ATL hitmaker Zaytoven and with accompanying visuals filmed by the Moon Guys. She is currently working on her next EP, Goldilox, as well as various features and collaborations with artists and producers stateside and overseas.
She does it for a love of hip hop culture, music, writing and creating. She measures her success by how people connect with what she has to say. She also strongly feels that women in hip hop deserve more than they are being given and something needs to be done about it. Her music is a representation of where she is from, who she is, her sense of humor, and what she believes in.
