Instagram: @Flamesportsapp, @gradeakartiere Kevin Gilmore, also known as rap artist Grade A, was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. On October 15th, 1985 he embarked around music as a battle rapper. Determined to escape the streets later on after serving a prison term, he decided to take his career more seriously. He began working very diligently to pursue his dream of becoming a successful artist in the music industry. He has a son, who happens to be a major part of his motivation (Kartier Gilmore). He's only 10 years old, but is already a rising star in the boxing league. His hot new single, "Cleveland Is The City" featuring Mz. Jazebel is anticipated to perform well upon its release. The message he wants to send through his music is plain and simple: No matter what, keep pursuing your dreams! Grade A has performed at multiple shows and has plenty of experience in the rap game. You can find his music on Soundcloud and YouTube.
