Check out our exclusive interview with King Slo.
I2G is here with King Slo, how’s it going?
It’s going great. I cant complain
Tell me a little bit about your start in hip hop and who are some of your musical influences out there coming up.
Mom, Micheal, and Prince…whatever else that was fitting for the day. I really took to the sounds of Snoop Dogg, Cash Money, Tupac, but as i grew a bit older I found a fond liking in Pimp C and The Last Mr. Biggs. I joined the band around the same time which gave me the drive for music and the understanding to branch off in different genres for listening pleasure.
You just recently dropped your new single entitled “Corner Store”. Tell me a little bit about the single and how it came together for you.
Every one has a corner store. I think people dont understand how much our every day lives resemble the same paths with different images, and if we can understand that we can balance the hardships we face everyday.
Do you have any upcoming videos?
Be watching out for Showin Up which will drop later this month…
What are your current thoughts on the state of hip hop?
I feel it is the best time to broadcast creativity in your music because its at a all time high. As far as lyrics we have to be conscious on the things we portray as good because the voice is powerful.
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
Home Grown Music, The sounds of Vitimin Cea, Marlee Tap Religion, Ikyl.. mohead aint dead, Andre 3000 still the greatest., Erykah Badu, Peewee Longway, Madd Max, Kevin Gates.
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
Lets skip this, If yall wanna see me HMU on Instgram or pull up on @_TheRealSlo.
What can you tell us about HomeGrown Music? How did that all come together?
