A MIXED KID

Kain’s family has an impressive background, as he revealed in a recent interview for VladTV. His father was Gylan Kain, one of the founder members of The Last Poets, a group born from the civil rights movement in the ‘60s. It was formed of several poets and musicians that are considered the pioneers of hip-hop and rappers as we know it today.

His mother, on the other hand, is half-Asian, specifically Cantonese, so he has a mixed race. When faced with the statement that mixed kids were rare back when he was a kid, Kain said: “I don’t know, I think that is a myth.”

He went on to explain that in the neighborhood where he grew up there were kids with parents from several nationalities, Irish, Puerto Rican, Ukranian and more.

SEGREGATED L.A

To prove his point, Kain revealed that after living most of his life in New York, he realized how segregated is Los Angeles after moving there for a few years.

“It was shocking to me how it was separated by income, race, positioning, and jobs. I mean if you’re living in Los Angeles and you are not in the industry in any way, you are kind of a pariah,” he said.

“Trying to see what’s next ... Fates be kind.”
