LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK - On Friday, October 13, 2017 - Native West Islip rapper and songwriter KING MYERS officially releases the record titled “WICKED”, under Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.
WICKED is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with production partnerTrip Digital, founder Dj Journey. A boomin, uptempo 808 drops the hard rugged backbeat in between rolling trap hats laying the foundation for synth stabs that echo the struggles and rejoice with the rewards. WICKED is not only an anthem, it’s a cross country exploration led by KING MYERS in his global conquest through of underground Hip Hop. King’s lyrical partner in crime on the split track features Jamo, hailing from London and host of this collaborative endeavour. This record was recorded at Nu:Gen Studios in June, 2017.
WICKED is not just a record with a music video shot by Pacman TV, within two hours of its recording. Rather, packed beneath the music and lyrics is a much deeper meaning filled with behind the scenes sub-storylines between two rappers, and a composer, all from different walks of life. A meaning that reveals how the power of music, and social media brought different walks of live together to write, produce, record and shoot a project over a couple of days in London. No doubt, music brings people and artists together. At the right place, and the right time, magic can happen. This record is made of magic, only fit for a King!
King Myers’ track record reveals no shortage of previous projects that resulted in “King-like” outcomes for the artist. In february of 2017, King successfully pulled off one of hip-hop's greatest publicity stunts. He tricked the media into believing that he was a new signee to Kanye West's G.O.O.D. Music record label, to release his Donald Trump diss track "propaganda" in which he credited Kanye West as the producer. This caused king to be featured and mentioned on major media outlets like cnn, fox news, tmz, xxl magazine, and hiphopdx.
