Dallas songwriter and rap artist, Ken LaFlaire, is best known for being a crossbreed between conscious and southern hip hop. Born and raised in Oak Cliff, Ken LaFlaire first discovered his passion for music in elementary while performing original songs for school pep rallies. 
Continuing his education, he attended college and graduated with an MBA. After graduating, Ken LaFlaire realized the corporate world wasn't for him and began to take his music career more seriously.
Since moving back to Dallas, Ken LaFlaire has been on a mission to promote his brand and drop more music, receiving a vast amount of support from his city. He is featured in "Voyage Dallas" Magazine and served as an opening act for a Nipsey Hussle featured event. In addition, "Big Tyma," a track from his EP project "First Gold Chain," made its debut in "Go Sis," a vlog project by the stars of Tyler Perry's BET hit series, Sistas. Ken LaFlaire plans to continue his momentum towards success with his music and developing brand, "Good For Nothing."
