About King Kobra
Oklahoma City, OK
Ryan Walker also known as Kobra, Top Villan, Mista Masta Mind, Sir Knucklez Up Gunz Down, and Deep N Thought was Born on October 9th, 1983 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He grew up on the historic East Side of the city and attended Frederick Douglass High School. Kobra recalls writing his first rhymes at age 14. Other than being a blessing from God he credits his ability to write to his love for hiphop, poetry, and life's experiences. Athletically Gifted, he was awarded a football and track scholarship to Langston University where he was a true freshman starter at Free Safety. However, in his 3rd season his scholarships where taken after an untimely injury, bringing him to a fork in the road that many of us will eventually come to. People of every demographic, white, black, rich, poor, etc., will be able to relate to his music because it will vividly take you on a roller-coaster ride of past, present, and future; obstacles, triumphs, downfalls, achievements, redicule, love, tragedy, partnerships and betrayels of life. Taking Pride in the fact that he is a not just another rapper but truly an artist who not only loves but respects his craft is the reason for the schizophrenic like identities. He feels there are "art forms" in every craft. For example, paintings can be abstract, realism, cubism and so on. So as an MC he has truly mastered every art form of Rap to the point that when executing a specific art form a completely different alias emerges making him far more than a well rounded artist. Even with the split personalities, his music remains to be a true reflection of life and an accurate depiction of Ryan Walker!
