Baltimore native Kevin Edward Benjamin's, aka "Cutty Kev", music ambition and drive dates back to his elementary school days. At the age of 7 Cutty rapped in the cafeteria with classmates mimicking artists such as Cash Money Hot Boys and Jay-Z, but the one he looked up to the most was Tupac Shakur who he picked up from his father Kevin Simon Benjamin. At the age of 15 Cutty decided to take his music career more seriously and linked up with his older cousin Spiffy. Together they composed, produced, and recorded their music using an M-Audio microphone purchased from Best Buy. After releasing several songs throughout the years via MySpace, Facebook, Reverbnation, and DatPiff, Cutty was told that he should release a mixtape. Heeding that advice, Cutty released his first mixtape called Cutty Muzik. Cutty connect with other local Baltimore artists such as Lil Tae to form So Swagg Entertainment LLC; resulting in the release of a second mixtape "We Are So Swagg Vol 1".
As Cutty continues to grow as an accomplished artist, performing at several venues, his music journey has nowled him to become the most recent signee to GTK Enterprizes LLC.
