Kasim “Guillotine” Gary also known on stage as Guillotine The Kasino Champ, began his professional recording career at the young age of 16 with Emerge Records. Guillotine eventually went independent with his music creativity and began to develop and mature a unique style of dark storytelling. Through the inspiration of his father and brother, Guillotine used his history and knowledge of art and dark literature concepts to illustrate his music and breed a new form of horror.

 In 2012 Guillotine connected with the artist Ean K. Pegram of EKP Pictures and began a campaign of reimagining horror through audio and video. Pegrams eye for distinct video and Guillotine’s dark imagination came together to create a gallery of grotesque beauty. The duo began conceptualizing and producing a series of music videos that skew the line between horror and beauty with quality video production,  intense special effects, makeup, and music. Through his video work, Guillotine has developed and refined his acting skills and is a featured actor in a yet to be title feature film in 2015.
