One of his favorite songs was "Funky Beat" by the hip hop group Whodini. He would rap the entire song every time he heard it on the radio or saw the video.

The following year Antwon (Lavish) entered a city wide talent show, he was joined by a good friend by the name of Andre Morton (Ace). Together they won first place three years in a row. This was the experience that inspired the creation of the " Knockout Kings".

The Knockout kings began doing shows and opening acts for well known artist such as 50 Cent, DMX, Ludacris, Lil Flip, T.I., Project Pat, Gangsta Boo, Big Tymers, B.G., and Lil Jon. The Knockout Kings performed in the House of Blues, Magic City, and the club 112 in Atlanta. One of Atlanta's hottest producers Jazzy Faye took interest in the talent that the Knockout Kings posses and began to converse with their management.
Although great efforts where put forward no deal was met for the Knockout kings. In the year of 2002/2003 the contract for the Knockout Kings had ended and they soon after began a working relationship with Tim also known as (Gunz) . Gunz had his own label by the name of Union Management, this label consisted of Bad Seed, Fred Blast, and the Knockout Kings. Under this label various music came out of the Union camp including "Operation Takeover"which was a double disc. This also mark the end and the last album of the Knockout Kings. Lavish remained a member of the Union Family where he continued to grow in his craft. Lavish worked with artist such as Mims, Miri Ben Ari, Mr. Serv-On and Skooda ( Twista's label mate).
