For those who are new to your music, please intro­duce your­self?
I am King Keese. Artist. Pro­du­cer. Song­writer. Entre­pren­eur.

Con­grat­u­la­tions on the release of your latest single, “Rid­in With A Boss”! Can you share with us the inspir­a­tion behind the track and what you hope listen­ers take away from it?
Just being a boss and liv­ing the life that comes with it; being able to stand on busi­ness with who­ever you got by your side. I want listen­ers to feel what it’s like if you haven’t yet reached that status.

How does “Rid­in With A Boss” fit into the broad­er nar­rat­ive of your music­al jour­ney and your evol­u­tion as an artist?
It just shows my range, my growth, and how far I’ve come. I don’t like to fit myself in a box when it comes to the music and I like to keep my audi­ence enter­tained.

What was your cre­at­ive pro­cess like when craft­ing “Rid­in With A Boss”? Did you face any chal­lenges along the way?
I felt like the lyr­ics came effort­lessly as soon as I got the beat. We tweaked the instru­ment­als a bit so it could sit bet­ter with the vocals but we didn’t touch it too much.

The track is described as motiv­a­tion­al and empower­ing. What mes­sage do you aim to con­vey to your audi­ence through your music, espe­cially with this song?
That you really can do and have whatever you want when you claim it. Being a boss isn’t per­son spe­cif­ic, any­body can boss up and live the life­style.

You have a unique style and cha­risma that sets you apart in the hip-hop/rap scene. How do you stay true to your­self while also evolving as an artist?
You stay true to your­self by remem­ber­ing who you are, where you came from, and why you’re doing what you’re doing. Nev­er lose touch of your­self and keep things fun.

Can you tell us about your exper­i­ences per­form­ing across vari­ous cit­ies and even inter­na­tion­ally? How have these exper­i­ences shaped your music and per­form­ance style?
These exper­i­ences most def­in­itely helped shaped my music and style. Being able to per­form inter­na­tion­ally, espe­cially early in my career opened my arsen­al and boos­ted my con­fid­ence know­ing that I was tap­ping into fans out­side my home coun­try. There’s more to feed than the US.

With a dis­co­graphy that includes three EPs and sev­er­al singles, how do you approach each new release in terms of push­ing bound­ar­ies and explor­ing new sounds?
I approach each track with the mind­set of mak­ing a hit or banger. If I feel like I missed the mark with the pre­vi­ous track or EP, then that’s fuel to give it more and push my bound­ar­ies even fur­ther for the next ses­sion.

What do you hope fans old and new will dis­cov­er or redis­cov­er about King Keese through “Rid­in With A Boss”?
That not many artists have the ver­sat­il­ity and band­width I have and I am always work­ing on my craft. I am always look­ing to make myself bet­ter as an artist while mak­ing each track bet­ter than the pre­vi­ous.

As an artist who delves into themes of self- empower­ment, suc­cess, and resi­li­ence, how do these themes reflect your per­son­al exper­i­ences and beliefs?
I believe we all have chal­lenges in life and how we deal with them, defines who we are. The music I release scratches the sur­face of what I exper­i­ence in life. It’s an out­let for me and I hope my per­sist­ency encour­ages someone else.

Look­ing ahead, what can fans expect from King Keese in terms of future pro­jects or col­lab­or­a­tions, and how do you envi­sion your artist­ic jour­ney unfold­ing from here?
Fans can expect me to keep my foot on the ped­al while push­ing out good and enter­tain­ing music. I won’t stop work­ing on my craft and being who I am that brought me this far.
