CJ King is a well rounded individual. He excels in every and anything that he puts his mind to. Graduating from Liberty University CJ knew that he wanted to pursue a career in music. Doing so he has written many pieces and continued to push himself with the support of his family and the ones around him. He is now working to his career with C1 Management. I am more than convinced that he will make it big some day and I am glad that I got the opportunity to interview him.
We discussed the following:
Q: What do you enjoy most about making music?
A: I enjoy the moment that I get to sit down and listen to the finished product after hours of recording. It’s a great feeling.
Q: How do you plan on using your music to send a positive message to your peers and people who may look up to you?
A: Keep doing what I’ve been doing since freshman year of college. Make music that relates and touches on different battles we fight everyday.
Q: If you could collaborate with any musician who would it be?
A: If I had to choose ONE I would say Andre 3000
Q: What inspires your music?
A: I’m inspired by my growth. I look at where I started and get inspired to go in when I see that there was NO way I could have gotten to this place except through His doing.
Q: What advice would you give someone else who wishes you pursue a career in music.
A: Be Real. Authentic. And speak from the heart. Don’t give up.
Q: What would you say is different about your style?
A: Hmmmm. My verses always stand out from the norm because I literally record each bar as I come up with it. Then when the session is all said and done, you listen back and it sounds as if the beat was made for my verse instead of it sounding like I just forced a verse on top of the beat.
Q: What is your biggest pet peeve when it comes to creating your sound?
A: Having to find beats. I HATE It.
