BIOGRAPHY

Recording artist King (aka King Draft) Hails

from the hometown of Parliament

Funkadelic - Plainfield, New Jersey.

Growing up on the gang ridden

west end of the city, King shares

his unique story of how hard

it was to be around, and not

involved. From having friends in

jail to having classmates killed

from gang violence, he rhymes

in an attempt to change the way

things happen in inner cities across

the US. King, the self proclaimed

“hope dealer” is attempting to make

things better for the children forced

into these living conditions including his

own son. Even though he wasn’t involved

in the gang violence, it still affected him

in life changing ways. From being jumped

multiple times to having his front teeth

knocked out at a house party.

King Draft is hip-hop recording artist originally from Plainfield, New Jersey, but he's come to admirably represent independent hip-hop in the Triangle. In March, King Draft and four other local rappers—Konvo the Mutant, $wank, Kelly Kale, and (J) Rowdy—traveled to New York City to compete on BET's reboot of Freestyle Fridays.

His music is certifiably solid. Jerm Scorceses, producer, masterfully samples old soul and hip-hop records and constructs unique sonic backdrops for Draft's raps (see 2015's Kingdom Come). Jerm often favors classic elements such as soul vocals and humming organs, but he's equally liable to lay down hypnotically menacing trap beats. The collaboration proves fruitful again on Two Eyes, a seven-song collection that dropped in June. On "Resurrection," Jerm mashes up seemingly disparate sounds to build a dark and complexly layered instrumental track that leaves just enough space for the methodical bars of Draft and guest rapper $wank.

If Draft keeps this up, listeners beyond the Triangle are bound to catch on.
