New York rapper, King YK, is on a mission to become an artist turned mogul. Besides being known for his musical artistry, King YK is working to be known for his business mind and moves. King YK is one of those special artists who gives his listeners motivation, but a good, turnt time as well!
King YK describes his sound as, “Melodic, balanced with hard hitting bars still, which has me able to switch from melody to just rap with smooth transition.” The independent artist has been working on his sound since he started doing music at the age of 9. King YK always knew in his heart that music would end up being his life goal. When he was younger, he would attend his father’s shows who managed a music group. King YK was so impacted by the energy in the studio sessions and video shoots that he knew he wanted to become an artist as well. He began writing his first raps in a black and white composition book!
King YK has written his own lyrics ever since, and recently, has been practicing spitting freestyles into the mic instead of writing down lyrics. The jack of all trades is able to switch up his flow whenever it calls for it. King YK is able to cook up a banger with any beat that is thrown at him!
King YK has opened up for Da Baby in two cities when he dropped his own EP titled, “PreSZN.” King YK has just recently dropped an album, 9.14, which is doing numbers on all streaming platforms! His single, “Bag,” off of the album was also paired with a visual that you can see below. As for the rest of this year, King YK is working on dropping a deluxe version project with more visuals in early November!
What’s next for King YK? King YK is going to be that one artist to come in the game and be one of the youngest CEOs in the industry.
