KING SLIK is a young and talented Hip Hop sensation, born and raised in renowned South African township of Tladi in Soweto south west of Johannesburg. His love for showbiz developed in seventh grade when he organised a dance show at his Primary school, which helped him understand how to work with people, and most importantly to follow his dreams and pursue his passion. He started rapping & writing his own rhymes in 9th Grade, and further pursued his music career when he attended the University Of Johannesburg in 2012.
After the successful release of his single “SET IT OFF”, young SA Hip Hop sensation KING SLIK releases debut 8 track EP titled ‘The King’s Speech’.
It’s a blend of home brewed SA Hip Hop, with an international appeal and impact, that is bound to create a new wave in the music scene.
The EP kicks off with the official single “SET IT OFF” a heart-felt fusion of contemporary R&B and Hip Hop, with a home-brewed South African & global feel. The follow up song “BONNIE & CLYDE” is a Hip Hop love letter featuring Scarab on vocals that will surely have you singing along to the catchy hook. “WAVEY” is a club banger that showcases KING SLIK’s flexibility in delivering high energy verses together with featured artist STUU.
Up next is a slower tempo R&B and Trap fused “BEEN THIS WAY” followed by “BAE DRAMA” another club and radio friendly single. KING SLIK assembled a young and talented team of producers (BLASS, SBUDAGAWD, SLUG LUGHO & SPDUBB BEATS) for the project & they without a doubt showed their diverse skills in making the EP sound like a work of art. “THE KING’s SPEECH” closes off with banging tracks “PROBLEM”, “RICH PORTER” & “THE COME UP” which summarise KING SLIK’s aspirations and desires to make his dreams a reality.
“I think ‘THE KING’s SPEECH’ is a wavey introduction to the game for me and people will surely get to vibe to my music in a pure way, with no dilutions. This for me is the best and most honest way to present myself to the masses” – KING SLIK
