We gladly discovered K.I.N.G. The MC thanks to his latest strong track entitled “Napoleon Hill”. A rap song at its best, extracted from his album “The Good. The Bad. The Ugly II”.
A classical and pure Hip-Hop instrumental and K.I.N.G. The MC who raps his heart, his life, his feelings and experience.
The lyrical content is admirable as it takes us into the artist deepest stories. K.I.N.G. The MC converts in this overwhelming track his toughest souvenirs into an amazing artistic strength.
We had a fascinating conversation about it with K.I.N.G The MC, discover it now:
Hi K.I.N.G The MC. We are happy to have you. Can you introduce yourself to our readers?
Born Zachary Taylor Boetcher. I am an American rapper, songwriter, motivational speaker, lyricist and spoken word artist. K.I.N.G. is an acronym for Knowledge Inspiring New Greatness. My music has been influenced by the hardships and life experiences I have endured. I was born poverty-stricken but purpose-filled. My dream of success and overcoming the cycle of poverty is the driving force behind my music. My purpose is to encourage others to go after their dreams in spite of their circumstances and obstacles they face in their own lives. I hope to inspire minds and touch the hearts of everyone who listens to my music. Take a listen and you’ll soon see that I don’t have to sing to make soul music.
When did you start to write rap songs and what inspires you?
I’ve been writing music for as long as I can remember. I recorded my first song around age 15. It was a “diss” song intended to humiliate a rival of mine at the time. During this era, I would say my rapping style was very similar to that of a young “Cassidy”. However, when I was 18 I was incarcerated for nearly a year and during this time I developed my love for spoken word and poetry. I would often perform my poetry for the other inmates to keep their spirits up. One of the inmates gave me the name K.I.N.G., an acronym for Knowledge Inspiring New Greatness. Upon my release from jail, I began to implement this new poetic version of myself into my music, resulting in me becoming the very artist I am today.
I am inspired by “real life” topics that invoke heartfelt emotion. My underlying inspiration stems from the adversity I faced growing up in poverty and the desire I have to leave a legacy behind for my family.
What usually is your creative process?
My creative process is very spiritual consisting of hours and hours of prayer and meditation while simultaneously writing.
Your music is quite intense and powerful, everyone can relate to it. Tell us more about your latest release.
My latest release, The Good. The Bad. The Ugly II, aka TGTBTU 2, is a very full project consisting of 21 tracks. It is a compilation of stories about my life and the lives of those who’ve inspired me. “Napoleon Hill”, track 10 on the project, was strategically placed right in the middle of the album because the song embodies the very ideas that ultimately manifested the entire project. That idea being “Anything the mind can conceive, the mind can achieve”-Napoleon Hill.
Can you share with us what are your plans for the future?
Currently we are in the process of shooting several more visuals for TGTBTU 2. We intend to take it to the next level with these and create something even more special than the visual series we released for the first project, TGTBTU.
