King Of Da Bama: Alabama’s Last Hope!
I had the pleasure of sitting and chopping it up with the hip hop artist known as King Of Da Bama. To say the least, he definitely deserves the attention of the masses. Not only because he makes some really dope music, but because his grind, ambition, and over all positive vibe are something to reckon with. King Of Da Bama took time out of his busy schedule to answer a few questions for the fans and to drop a few tips and advice for the artist that are looking for some guidance. Check out the interview below and see what K.O.D.B a.k.a King Of Da Bama had to say.
Hey man it’s definitely a privilege to be able to chop it up with you for a quick second. I know that you have a busy schedule so I want keep you for too long bro. Okay, So first thing first, can you give a brief history of where you are from and how long you have been doing music?
Whats good bro I’m from a small town in Alabama, Smiths station/Motts I’ve been doing music since I was about 13 years old.How did you come up with the name King Of The Bama?
Well actually I used to start all my verses ” King of da bama ayeeee” and it actually just stuck.
What is the main obstacle that you have faced as an independent artist, and how did you overcome it?
Really just actually getting the people to listen to your music, I overcame it by demanding support, being active in my community, doing block parties, and buying Billboards because the people won’t take you serious until you take yourself serious.
That’s some great advice bro. So, what lesson did you take from the situation ?
To invest in my craft.
There are a lot of people young and old that love music and want to become an artist, but don’t necessarily know how to get into the game. Much more importantly, when they start to make a little buzz, they don’t know how to stay relevant. What advice do you have for the new comers in the game right now about these subjects?
My advice is to stay consistent! Music doesn’t have a time limit and most importantly its more to it than just music! You have to be active in your community.
Okay, another question, how important is it to have a strategy and goals when it comes to having a successful career in the entertainment business?
Its very important. A lot of times I see artist dropping more music than their fans demand. My strategy is to drop just enough music to hold the fans until they want more.
What is your definition of success and can you give an example?
There is no right or wrong answer to this, its up to what you’re trying to achieve. I wanted to be a person to bring change to my community, be someone the kids look up too and I definitely think I’m successful in what I was trying to do for my community.
What is King Of Da Bama working on right now?
Alabama’s Last Hope is available now on Spinrilla, I have Vol 2 on the way, and I have the free Montana tape on the way. The whole MGE is working.
What can we look forward to in the future, and how can the fans find your music and social media?
