Kamal was born in Harlem NY and raised in the Bronx and later Teaneck, NJ (which was only 10 minutes from New York City) by a single mother with 3 children from 3 fathers who struggled to pay the bills and had nervous breakdowns and would sometimes faint. He was recruited by gangs and negative posses. He and his friends were attracted to the excitement of the streets of New York, Paterson NJ and Newark NJ. He lost many friends to drugs, dealing and crime related activities. Some are locked up to this day. By listening to his inner voice as well as several voices in the village, he was able to survive and escape the streets.
He has a coming of age movie entitled "Up in the Attic" (Rated R) which is based in the 1980's hip hop era. He has also acted in several independent films one which is currently on Tubi. He has acted in a play "The Greatest is Love" as well.
