The infamous city of Inglewood, California, has long been glorified in the hip-hop world — and has given birth to legendary pioneers like AMG, and new school heavy hitters like Casey Veggies. Multi-disciplinary artists Muzic King is a new upstart looking to put his city on the map further. Although his name seems to suggest he’s limited his focus, he is bigger than just music; he’s also made a name for himself as a fashion designer, film director, and DJ [amongst other things]. With an affinity towards 80s rock and electronic music, his music does anything but blend in. He is aiming for no less than the top of the game — and with three projects deep, he’s developed a musical aura that will help him achieve his goals than later.
The latest release, Popn, is a west coast “ratchet banger,” as Muzic King describes it. Contemporary piano melody, heavy bass, with a sprinkle of that 808 that the sunrise state is synonymous with. Give it a spin, and follow him on Twitter @iAmMuzicKing.
