King Piff, Painting Vivid Pictures


King Piff was born in Panama City, Panama and came to the United States at the age of 2. King Piff and his mom where back and forth from Panama to Brooklyn, NY until he turned 5. They overcame a lot to be able to permanently reside in the U.S. He began break dancing and pop locking at the age of 5; he had discovered something he loved along with his other artistic abilities to draw and paint. It wasn’t until the age of 8 when he first heard “Ladi Dadi” by Slick Rick and “Rock the Bells” by L.L. Cool J that he knew what he wanted to be when he got older.

He started writing down his first rhymes at the age of 8 and recorded his first song at the age of 10. He has been blessed with the opportunity to perform at the Arc in Brooklyn, Wetlands, various Cuny colleges, theaters, halls, and so forth. He had 2 big opportunities to be signed with a major. After failed attempts he joined the marines. After being discharged with an O.T. H. he moved back to Brooklyn and got back to work.

It’s been a very long and difficult road and you can hear it in his music: frustration, anger, passion as well as the slick-talking-witty wordplay that NY emcees have been known to posses. He has been compared to Tupac, Ghostface, Nas, DMX,, Prodigy, and Common. He is an artist who paints vivid pictures about his life’s struggles and upbringings.
