Even as a new artist, King Harris has one royal foundation. Raised in Long Beach & developed in Oxnard, California, the MC who uses his government name has collaborated with E-40 (“Thirsty”), toured the country with his cousin Jay Rock & Tech N9ne, and been a fixture in the studio with Kendrick Lamar & ScHoolboy Q. Now, he’s teaming with Gangrene’s Oh No for his debut album, ‘Nightmare On Wolff Street‘, a breakthrough project in a career & a life that truly stands out.
“Oxnard has always been a breeding ground for that sound that’s popular,” deduces King in a year where natives Madlib & Anderson .Paak have been behind two of 2016’s biggest albums (‘The Life Of Pablo‘ & ‘Malibu‘). “When somebody from Oxnard gets on, that’s the little door, and then it turns into a big hole.”
Teaming with Oh No, they hit the lab and created King’s debut ‘Nightmare On Wolff Street‘, an album that effectively bridges 1988 with 2016 and is inspired by milestone Cali Hip-Hop classics like Snoop’s ‘Doggystyle‘ and The Game’s ‘The Documentary‘ (The Game appears on King’s “Right Back To The Money”, a funky concoction of break-beats and boastful bars).
With a Top 100 debut release under his belt, King offers up a new freestyle/loosie, flexing his muscle over Drake’s latest time & place track.
