Kingweezy, A Growth Gene For Rap


“I just don’t get what they are trying to promote nowadays because it sure isn’t hope, prosperity, or knowledge at all.”

Kingweezy jumped into the rap game full-fledged when he realized that all the music that mainstream radio was playing was garbage, as he blatantly in an interview. Kingweezy vividly remembers one Saturday sitting at home listening to the radio and actually taking a tally on how many times 1 song was played within a 2 hour time span and the song wasn’t even good. Growing up with a wide range of music and having a tough child hood seems to go hand and hand, so much so that you can actually sit and pin point the exact songs that helped you through tough times, made you sad during the happy times, and actually educated you when there seemed to be no one else around to do so. Kingweezy believes there are still some great teachers and educators, it’s just unfortunate that they’re an endangered species.

This is where Kingweezy comes in: to provide a growth gene or stem cell (if you will) to a dying DNA strand that must live on to give the up and coming generations something healthy, strong, vibrant, entertaining, but most importantly hope. One of Kingweezy’s favorite quotes is by Emily Dickenson where she says, “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul, and sings the tune without the words and never stops at all.”

Kingweezy feels that she was describing a void that must be fulfilled through today’s music and why shouldn’t he provide that need if he possesses the capability? Be sure and look out for Kingweezy’s 4 part music series entitled “Slept On.”
