The KASH Boys consists of two best friends, Kagiso (K.G) and Shaka (Young Shak), with South African heritage yet who were born and raised in Australia. The name KASH represents a combination of the best talents of each member; Kag’s (KA-) strong and determined business sense and desire to achieve something larger than life; Shaka’s (-SH) supreme and unique lyrical talents and extraordinary imagination. The guys draw their inspiration from artists such as Jay-Z, Nas, Fabolous, and Lupe Fiasco.
The KASH Boys were formed in 2002. Both the guys played lead rolls for the 2002 St Edmunds Rock Eisteddfod. This set them upon the path of higher musical achievement. Since then their musical careers have flourished. The guys made a move to Melbourne to work with known hip-hop producer Israel (Roadshow / Sony BMG), Kyle, and the Elite Fleet, and this was to be the start of a lucrative and productive relationship. Through the Elite Fleet the guys were given the opportunity to feature on two major hit singles, ‘Old Skool Luv’ by Israel (Australian top 20), and ‘Turn It Up - Remix’ by Kyle.
While on the road since 2005, KASH managed to find the time to produce their debut single, ‘Move It’.
In 2006, KASH teamed up with youth movement powerhouse, Kulture Break, where they received spiritual guidance and grew a large support network, and were given the opportunity to work on a Kulture Break collaboration titled, ‘The Valley Project’ (JWalker Records). After KASH finished work with Kulture Break, they teamed up again with Israel and New Zealand producer, Vince Harder, for some fresh production and to complete their debut album, ‘The Birth’, which they had been secretly working on since 2005.
