Going on to a solo career, Kurupt released a series of solo albums that featured hardedged sounds and explicit lyrics. With his own record company, Philadelphia-based Antra Records, and a series of small film roles, Kurupt has broadened his career to become a fledgling entertainment impresario. Ricardo Brown grew up in Philadelphia in a singleparent household. By the time he was 15 years old, Brown was running with a tough crowd and his mother, fearing for his safety, sent him to live with his father in the Los Angeles suburb of Hawthorne, California. Adopting the pseudonym Kurupt, the young rapper soon made contact with the gansta rap scene centered around Compton and South Central Los Angeles. His success was almost immediate: at the age of 18, Kurupt signed a contract with rap impresarios Lamont and Ken Brumfield, who ran Rapp Central Productions and HoodstaLife Publishing. Later, the contracts would become the source of multimillion-dollar lawsuits against gansta rap kingpin Suge Knight and his label, Death Row Records.
