Meet King De$

Meet King De$

By Sarah BlessingPublished about a year ago 3 min read

What’s your artist name and where are you from? My artist name is King De$, which stems from my first name being Desmond. And being that every single one of us are kings and queens in our own right I decided to throw the king in front of Des. But I decided to replace the s with a dollar sign instead due to my deep rooted fascination and intrigue with money, Why do you love music? I love music because it runs through my veins. At the age of eight I was singing and writing poetry. And when my oldest brother introduced me to hip hop that was all I needed to say this would be what I want to do. Furthermore, music has been my source of healing when I felt the most alone or the most depressed. Music has been everything for me, and I love would for my music to serve that same purpose to someone who needs it, I’d want to use my music to help those who feel alone and who felt how I felt and hopefully my music can help them get through whatever they’re dealing with. What makes you different as a music artist? What make me different is my uniqueness. My flow at times, but let’s all be honest with so many pioneers in this music industry it’s hard to be unique. But all those who influence me help to make who King De$ is. And King De$ is a highly talent person. And I’m more than will to prove it to people, whether they are naysayers or even just proving to myself that I’m great and that I’m different from all these other artists and musicians. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?I see myself touring around the world. Making and releasing legendary music that’ll get me to where I need to be. And of course I’d want the material things that come with it but I’d want to be known for music for the most part.———- What do you want to accomplish in life? I want to do this music thing full time. Of course I’d want everything that comes with being a world renowned artist by just wanting to be known worldwide for it. And eventually be placed in the conversation of the greats. But more important I’d want to use my status and success to help those in need. Being that I’m African, I’d want to give back and help my people in the continent of Africa.I’d also want to leave my kids with enough property and resources to were when I’m no longer around they’d be more than fine.——- What do you bring to the music world? I bring my creativity, my versatility, my world play and my ability to multitalented. Kinda like Kanye, being able to mix and make beats. What do you want to be remembered by? I want to be remembered for my relentlessness, and my ability to bring creative people together to make a masterpiece. And of course the typical answer would be my music, my flow. But honestly I want to be known for my creative mind. As well as being someone who experimented with this sound. Basically someone who isn’t afraid to take chances when it comes to music.Trying different sounds in order to take my sound and my music to the next level. It’s always important to grow and develop as an artist. I wouldn’t want to stay the same as an artist, I’d want to get better and more polished. But all in all I’d just want to be remember as one of the goats if not then as close to it as possible.
