‘Lots of times I went to jail for violent crimes’: using a tough perception to make millions online


You might not know him, but TKO is one of the biggest names in the world of underground rap music – as well as being a brand ambassador for clothing label AK King Empire. His look is aggressive – and he makes no attempt to hide his violent criminal past.

TKO lists some of his past felonies to Sunday Night’s Melissa Doyle. “Aggravated bodily harm. Lots times I went to jail for violent crimes.”

It was a lifestyle that almost killed him when he was stabbed in a fight with a local thug. “I think I was DOA when I got there [to hospital], and I remember waking up three days later out of a coma,” TKO recalls.
