Maximiliano Kuper, aka Kingdom Kome, was born in Mar del Plata, Argentina on September 27th, 1978 under a tumultuous military dictatorship era. Over 30,000 men, women, and children were abducted, tortured, and murdered in a time when tyranny was law, where no one could speak the truth or go against the words of those that led. Arrested and threatened, and to avoid becoming one of “los desaparecidos”, his parents changed their future and immigrated the family, and 1-year-old Max, to the United States.
Growing up in Miami, Florida, Maximiliano still felt the echoes of Argentinian oppression seeping through his parent’s revolutionary music; melodic tunes washed with revolution, personal legends, and voices tearing up at the thought of pure freedom. Little did he know that this would be the beginning of his journey, molding him with social consciousness and a view of the world few had. Not feeling fully part of the hustling streets of Miami, Max began to question everything, fishing through heavy metal, reggae, and Spanish rock, until his soul landed on the words of hip hop. At that time, hip-hop was the full unabashed expression of the oppressed, the words of the inner battles, pure raw poetry. This was now his outlet, his muse, and his fire. Kingdom Kome was born.
A visionary artist, poet, producer, manager, CEO, husband, and father, Kingdom Kome morphs the grit of the Miami music scene with the soul of his past. Not satisfied with the politics of the industry, he purchased equipment and taught himself the ins and outs of the music industry. Spitting his own lyrics and beats, and shielded by talent and perseverance, Kingdom is leaving an indelible impression and is on his way to becoming one of the most prominent players in the entertainment industry.
Since his inception, Kingdom has worked with and collaborated on songs with some of the greatest hip-hop heavyweight lyricists and legends in the game. Legends such as:
Psycho Les (The Beatnuts)
Wise Intelligent (Poor
Killah Priest (Sunz Of Man / Wu Tang)
Conway The Machine (Griselda Records)
Timbo King (Wutang / Royal Fam)
Thristin Howl The 3rd
D.V. Alias Khryst
U.G. (Cella Dwellas)
Prodigal Sunn, (Sunz Of Man / Wu Tang)
Hell Razah (Sunz Of Man / Wu Tang)
A member of the legendary Lolife crew (recruited by The Polorican and General Thirstin Howl The 3rd himself) and a staple and legend in the Miami hip-hop music scene, Kingdom has toured all kinds of entertainment venues, clubs, and festivals throughout the world, and torn down stages both domestically and internationally! He has headlined the Cannafest annual show in Prague, CZ, the legendary annual Bongathon festival in Colorado, shared stages and opened up for Mobb Deep, Talib Kweli, Planet Asia, Thirstin Howl The 3rd, Raekwon The Chef, Ghostface Killah, Black Violin, India Arie, Kymani Marley, & Morgan Heritage, as well as collaborated with multi grammy-award winning producer Streetrunner (Eminem, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Fat Joe, Royce Da 5’9) and Latin grammy nominated producer Beatsndahood.
Far few and in between do you come across a leader in a society that speaks for the people, one that drives spirit and emotion through your veins. A renaissance artist with talent and charisma, an Argentinian rebel and Miami native, and a consistent seeker of the truth, Kingdom Kome waits patiently as the next heir to the throne in the entertainment world.
