Life and music career

Early years

Born in Compton, B.G. Knocc Out grew up in neighbouring cities, Compton and Watts. He started rapping after being inspired by Eazy-E's song Boyz-n-the-Hood. B.G. Knocc Out was also a part of a short-lived group called Youths At Risk. [http://www.illhill.com/article.asp?topic_id=751 B.G. Knocc Out Interview] (HTML) Illhill.com. Retrieved on 2008-08-31]

Knocc Out appeared on Eazy-E 1993 double-platinum EP It's On (Dr. Dre) 187um Killa. Thanks to the success of the album's signature track, "Real Muthaphuckkin G's", which dissed Death Row recording artists Dr. Dre (with whom Eazy had bitterly parted ways in 1991) and Snoop Dogg, he and Dresta had gained exposure, and they were inspired to record an album of their own. Dresta and B.G. Knocc Out released their first album "Real Brothas" in 1995. B.G. Knocc Out made three guest appearances in Eazy-E's posthumous album Str8 off tha Streetz of Muthaphukkin Compton.
