Kareemallah Muhammad (better known by his stage name K Money) is a rapper from Toronto, Ontario.
K Money began rapping in 2016, having been influenced by his father who was a member of 90's hip hop group TBTBT. He released numerous freestyles and mixtapes to little success and recognition. He is the younger brother of fellow Toronto rapper Casper TNG and is part of the Project Originals gang in the neighbourhood of Alexandra Park in Toronto. He gained recognition for his 2017 single "Come Outside" for his melodic flow which has amassed over 10 million views on YouTube in under 12 months. He dropped the single "Bang Bang" the following year which also went viral. He also released the single "Hurt" featuring Yung Tory. K Money was featured on 6ixBuzz's debut compilation album; 6ixUpsideDown. He had more vocals on the album than any other rapper, with the singles "AH EE" and "No Bacardi". The album peaked at 87 on the Canadian Albums Chart on November 3, 2018.
2019–present: Money Mixtape
In May 19, 2019, K Money released his debut commercial mixtape Money Mixtape. K Money linked up with 6ixBuzz again to feature on the compilation album NorthernSound on the single "Bandz" alongside Money Muzik.
In March 2018, K Money was charged in connection to case of human trafficking. The case had been ongoing since November 2017, and he was charged with one count of each; assault, sexual assault, forcible confinement, and failure to comply with probation.
In June 2018, Casper TNG and K Money were arrested for a combined total of almost one hundred charges. The pair alongside two other Project Originals gang members were involved in a crime spree, which took place May 30, 2018. The gang was involved in a police chase which eventually came to a halt. Crown prosecutor alleged this shooting was retaliation for a shooting that happened less than 24 hours prior in the area of Vanauley Walk. He was also being held on a separate September 28, 2017 firearm investigation where a loaded 44.Cal magnum revolver was found in the Kensington Market area. The police found two loaded firearms in the vehicles and the gang were placed in jail in June 1, 2018. The gang pleaded guilty in October, 2019 and K Money received a 4-year remaining sentence after convincing the courts that this shooting was not gang related.
