Born and raised most of his life in Tampa, Florida… Kyng brings that east coast suburban flow to the wonderful world of spiritual Hip-hop. “ Born and raised a Christian I am a testament of the goodness and awesomeness of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ.. though also a past prodigal I am truly opened to the evils and grittiness of the inner cities that traps the minds and hearts of our youth throughout not only the U.S. but other communities in our present world to date”.
The second oldest with four other siblings who all have lyrical talents, rapping is definitely what Kyng would call second nature. “If I wasn’t listening to my other brothers freestyling on the streets than I was in my room trying to perfect my own flow”. Moms also had talent. I can remember singing in nursing homes or youth choirs to songs that she had written. For sure her talents as a singer and writer definitely rubbed off on her five boys.
My father who is the best role model for a young man to have showed me how to be a somebody, not just a good philanthropy in our society but one who strives to achieve much in the kingdom of God. But regardless of being raised in a great and loving home somehow I lost my way a bit spiritually. Hanging out in the wrong sideof town, doing drugs, and basically being the complete opposite of my Christian upbringing. Kyng was searching, trying to figure out life on his own. Not until he surrendered his life and will totally unto God did he began to bare much fruit. “ I began to search the scriptures truly for the first time in my life studying for hours on end. Knew that I was blessed with a gift I began to turn everything in my life around with His help. To live only for Messiah’s purpose and his glory that will illuminate from my lips and touch the hearts of listeners abroad.”
Kyng’s journey has also led him into being not only a follower but a teacher of the Hebrew roots of our Christian faith. “ Believing it is an important and vital piece in the lives of every Christian , I am passionate in sharing this truth with all that I come into contact with. Truly the Goodnews of Messiah Yeshua, that is expressed in every song that I write.”
As a soldier of God who’s propelled to deliver the word of messiah through Lyrics that are thought provoking to the Jew and non Jew alike, the catholic, Protestant, those who are believers and those who are not. Kyng is on a mission To be a firebranded shofar proclaiming the works and goodness of Messiah in These “ Days of Elijah”!
