Kevin Madison (born 17 April 1968), better known by his stage name K-Solo, is an American rapper from the Bronx, New York. He was a member of the Hit Squad during the 1990s. K-Solo's two biggest hits were "Your Mum's in My Business" and "Spellbound", with the latter being the origin of a beef between him and DMX. The song utilises a style that features K-Solo spelling out various letters to go with the rhyme style, and DMX claimed that K-Solo stole the idea from him while the two were imprisoned in Riverhead Correction Facility in the 1980s. K-Solo and DMX engaged in a beef that is yet to have officially ended.

After the break-up of the Hit Squad in the mid-1990s, K-Solo signed with Death Row Records, but did not release any material on the label with the exception of a bootlegged song of him and labelmate Kurupt freestyling over the instrumental of Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice". K-Solo has not released an album since 1992, but was apparently working on an album in 2004 entitled There Will Be Hell to Pay which is yet to be released.
