Check out our exclusive interview with King Z3US.
I2G is here with King Z3US, how’s it going?
Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences.
I started my journey as a producer. I went to college on a football scholarship and got injured. After that I was searching for something to cling too. That’s when my love for music came. I’ve always been making beats since I was 15, but at that time, I had more time on my hands because I wasn’t playing football. As time went on, I was frustrated from the lack of people feeling my beats so I started writing. Started writing then started recording. Found my voice and progressed to where we are now.
I’m heavily influenced by Diddy, Jay, Andre 3000, Dr. Dre, Swizz Beats, J Cole, Drake, Kanye. Mostly the guys that were able produce and rap.
Tell me a little bit about your upcoming EP
YBE (Young Black Entrepreneurs) was just an organic piece of work where I let my supporters more into my life. They have been with me from day one, so a lot of the things I spoke on reflects the journey that they were to see first hand. Whether it be the stories growing up in Harlem, or something that happened in between me dropping The Chris Ferg Project, it didn’t matter cuz they were there every step of the way. My brother, BeatsByEclipse, and I got in our bag and got to it.
Do you have any more upcoming videos?
Absolutely! “WestBrook” on the way. My brother Hunter Ferguson and I working a visual EP for YBE. Beyond Dope! Working!
What are your current thoughts on the music industry?
I personally think the abundance of great music that’s out there is great. I know people be like ooooo this shit is wack because their preference of music isn’t being fed, but the outlets now to discover great music is at an all time high! Whatever kind of music you into, just go find it. If you don’t wanna listen to certain songs just simply stay away. But I think there are many dope artist that I even run across randomly. Shit I’m probably one of those artists lol
What is currently playing on your playlist musically?
Aww man. I’m listening everything from Calvin Harris to Migos. An array of genres depending on my mood.
Do you have any shows or tour dates?
