Certified Fresh – Chicago’s King L Used To Work For UPS, Says His Music Is Like Gumbo
So many new rappers, how can you possible keep track of them all? Hip-Hop Wired will help vet who is worthy of your
CD collection hard drive space with our “Certified Fresh” featurettes. Every week or so we’ll speak to and provide some insight on a Hip-Hop artist that displays the skills and potential to be that next big time rapper. For our first, we caught up with Chicago’s own King L of “Val Venis” fame.
Who: King L (shortened from King Louie) is a hard hitting, fun-loving rapper from the emerging hotbed of talent Chicago, Illinois.
Fun Fact: The emerging rapper, whose single “My H**s They Do Drugs,” featuring Pusha T and Juicy J used to be a camp counselor and worked at UPS. “Back when I was like 16 years old I used to work at a center and watch kids, know what I’m saying? But that was only on some Summer s**t. The only other job I had was working at UPS. I spent like three weeks there and that wasn’t making no money so I quit that s**t once I got my little bonus check.”
