Lucas Ford, AKA Karaz, was born in Denver, Colorado in 1983. Ford’s mother, a correctional officer, was relocated to Northern California for work before the Ford family finally and permanently settled in Southern California in 1994. While focused on his pursuit of education and his passion for teaching, Ford came across A Streez in 2002. With the help and direction of his mentor, Ford began to take his lyrical artistry to the next level. He joined forces with long time friend Manifest ONE in 2002 and they began performing together in 2004. They put together their first collaborative album as the “Slaying Tyrants” in 2010. Together with Joh Lowmax and Lindsey Spark, they have banded together to become the movement known as “Quest ONE” and are awaiting the release of their debut EP “Stars.” Ford currently resides in Southern California with his two children.
