According to Rolling Stones, 1988 was Hip Hop’s greatest year. Not only was the nation taken by storm with 15 of the most notable hip hop albums, but it was the birth year of KeKe Hicks (a.k.a. Kiilanda). October 23 1988, two months after the release of NWA’s Straight Outta Compton...the album that made rap explode, we were graced with another soon-to-become Hip Hop genius. Born into a military family, Kiilanda had the luxury of world travel at a young age.
