In His Own Words
My music is a reflection of not just my life, but peoples lives. It comes from the heart, I recount my beautiful stories with my ugly truths. Theres definitely a lesson in my message. To all Hip-Hop fans... scratch that. To all fans of music, I appreciate the love and support. I do this for the struggle. I do this for the streets. Mark my words, I shall indeed appease the crowd. As always... Respect ! - King Naim
