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.

ORANGE COUNTY, CALIFORNIA - On Friday, September 22, 2017 - Native Cali rapper and songwriter Khzzari officially released the record titled “Jazz Kat”, through the label Flourish$Prosper with distribution through Empi.re across download outlets including iTunes, as well as streaming platforms including Spotify, Tidal and Apple Music.
Jazz Kat is the first studio single of a series, in collaboration with production partnerTrip Digital, founder Dj Journey. A jazzy trumpet riff, followed by a piano lick sets the bluesy tone of this post-breakup contemplative Hip Hop record on which Khzzari reflects on his ex-girlfriend. Set to a modern 90’s style beat, produced by Dj Journey, listeners are nostalgically reminded of not only of the storytelling qualities found in old school, but also perhaps, of an old relationship where after they felt the same as Khzzari does, expressed in his 32 bars of sentiment.
Originally from Newark, New Jersey and after growing up in Orlando, Florida, Khzzari is now based in Orange County. He began writing poetry in middle school, which led him into music in high school. Influenced by his father’s Detroit upbringing and the soulful sounds of Motown, combined with influence from his mother’s Puerto Rican descent, Khzzari pulls from the best of both worlds, and remains rooted in the Hip Hop sounds he grew up on in the early 2000’s. In his most recent interview on Trip Digital Live, Khzzari explains that,
“As I was growing up I realized that music is poetry, but with rhythm, and music is global. I figured that I could use that to get my message out there.”
In addition to working on future single releases and album release (2018), Khzzari hosts a weekly podcast call “PerspeKtives” on which he tackles a number of themes and topics including Love, Pain, Technology, Illusions, Self-confidence, etc.).
