Representing San Bernardino, King is dedicated to perfecting his art and is driven to change the hip hop music scene and make a huge name for himself. I had the opportunity to chat and "break bread" with King about himself, some of his goals and go over a few of his favorite tracks!
- When did you get started as an artist?
I first started rappin when I was 13 in jail I used to get on peoples heads rapping and one of the officers there told me I was smooth with my words so when I got out i went to the homies that had a STU in his garage and started making songs that led on to me meeting my manager and the rest is history I’ve been goin at this music shit everyday since.
