Today, May 5th, 2020, Hip-Hop lost a rising star, KiiNG SHOOTER. The Queensbridge rapper gained fame and popularity back in 2017 with his noxious freestyles.
KiiNG’s paralyzing bars destroyed any track he featured on, while his unique voice and authentic style represented his projects to the fullest.
His first single, “They Say“, was released on June 29, 2018, followed by his debut EP “Fucc the Doubters” on August 24, 2018, which peaked at 148 on the US Billboard 200.
JUNGLE, CEO of STREET DREAMS and MASS APPEAL RECORDS, was so impressed with Kiing he signed him to his label in February of 2019.
KiiNG’s sophomore effort, “No Turning Bacc”, was released on April 20th, 2019 and did not disappoint. The street banger set the stage for his greatly anticipated debut LP, “Still Outside“, which was just released on March 27, 2020, only weeks before KiiNG would pass away.
“Still Outside” boasted 11 tracks of pure fire. The lead single, “Losses“, featured Brooklyn rapper, Uncle Murda. And he wasn’t the only emcee eager to be a part of KiiNG’s epic debut. Corey Finesse, Mac Dre, Dave East, Poppa da Don and PNV Jay all made guest appearances on the LP.
KiiNG SHOOTER was an extremely talented young artist well on his way to do amazing things when his young life was cut short.
The Hip-Hop community, and music community as a whole, mourn this devastating loss and send our deepest condolences to his family, friends and loved ones.
Sleep in peace young KiiNG. 🕊💙
