This is the story of Kieron Bernard, aka Kidco: gang leader, gangster rapper and street hustler who went to public school. Born the eldest son of a poor single mother with nine children, he was brought up in the West London council estate of Emlyn Gardens. He lived for music and imbued in American gangster rap culture. Kieron was the leader and inspiration for his gang of rappers, who called themselves “Tribel 4 Life”. He loved his mother more than himself and, through his music, tried to raise her out of poverty. He had made numerous trips to the United States of America, working on his new album, and was due to sign a record contract the week he was killed. He died in a shootout in a restaurant in Shepherds Bush, London, on 30th January 2002 after an argument over his haircut. He was 25 years old.
