A rapper, an actor and an entrepreneur, Kesan believes that he will stay on top of his game with his swagger. It has surely helped him past some of life’s worst situations, even watching his roommate commit suicide. His endurance is what takes the New Brunswick, New Jersey native to his dreams of becoming an award-winning actor and singer. He has what it takes to become a versatile entertainer, as well as a promising hip hop superstar.
Born Markice Moore, Kesan grew up in a broken home. He took the responsibility for his own survival when he was only 14, and developed a charisma that led him to hip hop. He dropped out of school, and eventually found his way using music as an outlet for his frustrations. He slept in recording studios to channel his energies and was soon being mentored by the neighborhood’s street celebrities. Escaping harsh realities made him quite famous, as he won several rap battles against older MCs. He next did some ghost writing for some of them in later years, and was soon thrust into the limelight. Kesan was asked by superstar Ginuwine to rap on his hit single “In Those Jeans” during an appearance on BET’s 106 & Park.
He moved to Atlanta with his street manager Ray The Hustler, and was met with challenges involving resources and a limited number of contacts. He reverted to his hustler instincts in order to survive, doing almost anything just to live. This only made him more determined to hold on to his calling, his dream of making it big in the music business. He was then signed to Akon’s record label, Konvict Muzik. His stardom, however, was hindered when he ran with a bad crowd and was led on the wrong path. Kesan also admits to being a bit wild, but this only adds to his natural manner in front of the camera.
