Kevin "Coach K" Lee is the COO of Quality Control Music. He has spent over two decades guiding and leading the careers of artists. Growing up in a single-parent household in Indianapolis, his mother worked at an RCA record pressing plant and would bring home music fresh from the factory. When his mother bought him a copy of the Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight", he was hooked and began a lifelong obsession with hip-hop.
In the 2000s, Lee managed two of hip hop's biggest acts, Young Jeezy and Gucci Mane. Under his watch Young Jeezy earned two No. 1 albums on the Billboard 200, and Gucci Mane peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Rap Albums chart with 2011's The Return of Mr. Zone 6.
In 2013 alongside his partner Pierre "Pee" Thomas, they formed Quality Control Music. The label has many acts signed, including Migos (Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff), City Girls, Lil Yachty and Lil Baby.
