Inspired by rappers such as
Pac, Biggie, Terror Squad, Outkast, and Nas, Kast and Max
picked up the pen at age 15 and began writing lyrics nonstop.
Both were born and raised in Dallas TX, and even though Luis "Kast"
Castro stayed in school until his senior year, he mainly spent
class time writing and brainstorming metaphors and flows. Kast
contained his talent, and it wasn't until teaming up with
Marcos "Max Payne" Davila that they two discovered they both
shared similar tastes in music and rap styles.
Inspired by his best friend, Max opened up and began spitting
at parties whenever the opportunity became available. Max
constantly impressed other rappers at parties with his street
life freestyle, and the two rappers quickly began getting
props props and respect from their audience. As Hispanic
rappers they have never been categorized as having a "Latin"
or "Chicano" style, but simply as "Hip Hop". Although Kast
never really picked up freestyling or battling considering
most of his time he spent writing, his lyrical flow and
murderous punch lines still proved his skills. Seven years in
the making, Kast and Max Payne have matured their voice and
talent drastically, they have teamed up to form the duo "La
Familia" and have recently finished their mixtape entitled
"Fire Volume 1".
