Born Kēvin Phillips, on a farm in the small Mississippi town of Holly Springs, spending his formative years being reared by hardworking Great-Grandparents, he developed a diligent work ethic. After his single mother, went north to Illinois’ 2nd city Aurora, with her two sons, he started school and spend his evenings with four older female cousins. Acting as babysitters, these teenage ladies, being music lovers, established

the foundation for

young Kēvin to

build on.

In 1990,


now 21

years old

calling himself

K-ottic K, would

start Khaaliq Productions,

with Gary Cooper, Xavier Lamont and Khalifah Shabazz. With all members being Disc Jockeys, the HipHop production team, would promote parties to purchase production gear and enjoy local success. As a natural progression, the group added homegrown rappers to the roster, with the intent to release records from these artists. Having Jam Master Jay as his major influence, this new lineup put K right where he dreamed of, on stage behind MCs, as a show DJ.  


After the Khaaliq Productions dismantled in the early 2000s, plus a name change, Keevin Muhammad found himself spinning nightclub gigs, producing mixtapes and promoting events, all unaccompanied. Following years                         of contemplating, and having come                                                           up with the name for the                                                                          company, he rebranded himself                                                                as DJ KHAALIQ!!
