Whilst still in high school, began to do music and camein contact with Cash Money Records, becoming their first signee. Adopting the name Kilo-G. Johnson recorded his debut, Sleepwalker in 1992 on Cash Money when he was just fifteen.[2] [3] Unfortunately for Cash Money, it only sold a few thousand copies. Though not bad for an unproven rapper whose distribution was limited to selling CDs out of a trunk. Shortly after its release, Cash Money teamed with producer Mannie Fresh in 1994. In April of 1995 Kilo G released The Bloody City album, featuring guest appearances by likeminded rappers like UGK’s Bun B and Pimp C as well as new Cash Money artists like Lil’ Slim, M$. Tee, Tec-9. The following year, he appeared on releases by his labelmates MS. Tee and U.N.L.V.
