Yasir Kaine was born Donald Ray Gaiter II, in Pomona, CA on August 7, 1984. He is also known by the stage names, Yas and Yasir Kaine. He is an American rapper, music producer, sound engineer and actor.
Yasir Kaine began his music career at a young age, singing in the choir at his grandfather's church when he was seven years old. Even though his grandfather was strict in his position against anything that wasn't gospel, Yasir found an interest in R&B. His love for hip hop began to flourish when he received his first full hip hop CD, "The Chronic" by Dr. Dre.
At the age of seventeen Yasir began to rap. When he turned 19 he joined an underground label, known as "Danny Boy Records" where he remained for 2 years. In September of 2005 an altercation at a show caused Yas to be admitted in the local hospital from multiple stab wounds. After receiving a number of stitches and a week of recovery he was finally released. Refusing to let circumstance weigh him down he set out to continue his rap career.
In 2006 he signed to "The Forsaken" records in Inglewood, CA, where he released his album/mixtape called "Ride Wit Me" in March of 2008. In 2009 he parted ways with the label and decided to go independent.
This led to a downward slope.
In 2012 he endured the loss of his cousin to gun violence. He took the next year off only doing music from time to time. In 2013 he enrolled at "The Art Institute" of San Bernardino, CA, where he studied audio/video engineering for a year and a half. While there he linked up with a number of artist and co-founded "Mixx Music Entertainment" in 2014.
