As a child, he attended St. Peter’s School and Belmont School in Shillong. Shortly after graduating from St. John’s Higher Secondary School, Shillong in 2006, he moved to New Delhi and enrolled at the University of Delhi. BK is the only son of Bijoy Kumar Hrangkhawl, who is the president of the Indigenous Nationalist Party of Twipra and an active social worker campaigning for the rights of indigenous tribal inhabitants in the northeastern Indian state of Tripura.

Hrangkhawl started his musical career with his formerly New Delhi based hip-hop group, DropSquad, which was signed by India’s leading music label Times Music, in 2010, after winning the nationwide talent hunt “Supastars” from the North Zone round.

That same year, the Punjabi singer, Jasbir Jassi, invited him to be the opening act for the releasing event of Jassi’s 8th album, “Jassi – Back with a Bang”.
