Brooklyn native Scott King is no rookie to the rap game and during our Atlanta broadcast at Patchwerk Studios DNA and Ms. Niko sat down for an exclusive interview where he discussed his hands on approach to his musical process, working with Drumma Boy, and all of the music he wants people to check out.
Originally, Scott King went by the name Q Da Kid but in the interview he went in detail about how after losing his grandmother he wanted to take on the family name and just be himself especially since a lot of other artists have made it acceptable and common.
“I feel like everybody’s going by their name like Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole…It’s something to deal with them,” King said.
Scott King sees himself as a one man band and prefers to do just about everything himself. In the interview he talks about the fact that he records and mixes his own music. Not to mention he films and edits his own videos which he explained allows him to move at his own pace without having to wait for anyone.
Most of Scott King’s new music has been produced by the undeniably talented producer Drumma Boy who is known for working with the best artists in the music business like Jeezy and Young Dolph. Although Drumma Boy normally produces turn up music for his clients him and Scott King have created a relationship that balances the turn up and the soulful side of King’s music.
This fits Scott King’s style because his features range from songs with soulful singers like Angie Stone to hard core rapper’s like Red Cafe.
Scott King focuses on keeping his music original and says that the way he does this is by staying away from a lot of the music that’s out right now so that he isn’t subconsciously influenced to make similar music.
Scott King is currently finishing his EP “For What It’s Worth” where he will continue making diverse lyrical music. Notable features include Musiq Soulchild, 2 Milli, and Red Cafe. Also the single “FTS” is available on iTunes and YouTube.
With the passion and effort Scott King puts in to his music he feels like once people hear it they will love it.
“I just want people to sit down and really give it a chance like they giving a chance to everything else,” said Scott King.
