"Atlanta's hip-hop scene continues to diversify thanks in part to King James III. Equipped with sly street battle raps, he focuses on lyricism rather than the loud chants preferred by others from the region. Driving bass lines and ultra-funky guitar licks further enhance the MC's confident lyrical flips"
Kyng James III, formerly known as King James, is an Underground rapper, poet, and civil rights activist. He earned his name by battling and doing shows in the Underground Atlanta Hip Hop scene. His recorded songs have reached over 40,000 downloads and his independent artist website had over 10,000 registered members. His two mixtapes: King James Version, and Genesis are recognized as Classics in the Southern Hip-Hop community. After taking a long hiatus from music, the current state of Hip Hop and the black community has forced Kyng James III to come back as a masked Vigilante lyrically ready to right the wrongs that are plaguing our community. Being both verbose and arrogant, as well as humble and spiritual, Kyng James III is the perfect Artist for those of us that feel "Lost" in this crazy world. He encourages others to stand up and be heard. WATCH, LISTEN, and LEARN as this "Kyng" takes the crown for the people.....
Kyng James III, a native of South Atlanta Georgia, fell in love with music (specifically Hip Hop) at a very young age. His early musical influences include: Ice Cube, OutKast, Goodie Mob, Scarface, 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G, Sade, Musiq Soulchild, Maxwell, and the entire Motown era. As music changed, his tastes changed as well. He begin to listen to musicians like Duke Ellington and John Coltrane, and began reading poems by Paul Laurence Dunbar and Langston Hughes. He started to experiment with different sounds and styles such as jazz and spoken word. The result is something new and refreshing in the music world. After being fed up with the music industry Kyng James III launched his own record label Scared of the Dark Entertainment where the artist and the listeners come 1 st . No gimmicks, no contracts, it's all about the MUSIC. We dont have fans, we have family, The Royal Family.
King James III quote: Be tru to yourself and stand with God. If you are true to yourself then you are a man. If you stand with God then no other man will be able to stand against you.
