Hide Your Wife: Because Emsee, KNG GST, and BIG Tone will steal her in the new hot release. And yes, “Damn” will hit you like a ton of bricks. That said, the blazing song and music video by South Coast rapper Emsee will catch you off guard. His smooth but scorching single will undoubtedly grip your attention from start to finish. 

 

LESS IS MORE:

 

Instead of aggressively screaming to get their point across, all three rap in a low tone.

 

LET THE LYRICS DO THE TALKING:

 

Again, with lyrics, the killer verses will grab your attention. 

Plus, the chorus will get stuck in your head.

 

THE MUSIC VIDEO BEGINS: 

 

The music video was filmed in a high-quality recording studio. To build anticipation, it begins with a series of slow-motion shots. All three rappers appear on screen throughout the video, and their individual performances are seen in the recording booth. The director Matt Rush also does an outstanding job of keeping the camera movements smooth and fluid.

 

In post-production, a variety of editing styles were employed. Smooth transitions, as well as some cross-cutting, seamlessly move from scene to scene. The end result is a high-quality performance video that was expertly shot and produced.

Published

FullSizeRender 2

King Sonic is an American Recording Artist, Producer and Creative Designer from Atlanta, Georgia. He has been submerged in the music seen for over 10 years now with no plans on slowing down. In his early music career he played the keyboard in several bands in D.C and became well known for his versatile style. In 2020 he became a super machine, producing and engineering his own music. Music and creativity has been in his roots. Pursuing it as a career was and has always been ideal.

His grandfather was the one who taught him to play the piano and his father who was a self taught poet and author was another inspiration. At the early start of his music career he began simply by experimenting with lyrics on a tape recorder. Soon his early supporters became fans who loved his music. They could resonate with his style and sound. Later down the line he decided to quit his job and put his 100 percent into his craft. After developing as an artist he has honed in on his sound. His sound is eclectic, fresh and solely hip hop. He aims to stand out then to blend into the current sounds of the market. When creating he creates with a purpose. He immerses himself into social issues, current world situations etc. This helps him create a narrative to construct his records.

Right now he is focused on his new album titled “RHODIE”. This album is set to debut this year. This project means a lot. He wrote it with his late grandmother, Rhoda(who his family referred to as RHODIE). King Sonic wanted to honor her with his gift and talent. Something she always has supported. The body of work embodies loss, grief, love, awakening and empowerment. His new single “Find God” is out and will also be on the album as well. His focus for the future is growth for this album and for his brand as a whole. Check out his single out now on all platforms.
