Talk to us more about your latest release

Life’s metamorphosis is inspired by personal loss and loss of family members and bonds of friendship. This drove me to start making changes in my life, and the music of this album express my feeling as I have grown through this process.

As an indie artist, how do you brand yourself and your music to stand out from the rest of the artists out there?
King Rawsky is unique in the fact that I am formally trained, in an industry with many self-made musicians. The main thing is the love that I give back to the community and reciprocate by giving back more than I receive. I rescue abused dogs, work with children
the label is a brand representing change and growth, for those who are afraid of what their homies will say or how they will be penalized. This brand is protection for those who want to walk the straight and narrow.
this is what my music teaches, how to be a kinder and stronger person, still brave, still a lion in the jungle, a wolf across the prairie, a warrior in the modern world.
Who have you been listening to lately?
I listen to Prince and MJ, Donell Jones, kici and Jojo,
Who are your biggest influences?
MJ and Prince,
Tell us about your passions
