Rising artist and son of T.I. and Tiny, King Harris, is making music that is upbeat and is aiming to touch a new generation. Although he’s new to the music scene, he’s not shying away from making his name known. He’s already on tour and traveling from city to city, taking over stages for the Members Only V.S. The World Tour.
While on set for the “Drip” music video, 14-year-old Harris talked with me about his new music.
What was the inspiration behind putting out your new single?
I really just wanted to get started on my music. But that was the first song that I really liked and really felt could go places.
Can you give us a little background behind some of the lyrics to the song?
I know for my hook it’s, “My whole family stay ready to go, drip from my head to my toe, I have the money to show. If its a problem then we want the woe.” So I’m basically saying I’m with my family and I drip from my head to my toe. I’m running up the money and my family with all the woe.
What advice would you give anybody who is balancing school and work but also trying to perfect their craft and trying to make their side hustles a reality?
You got to find a way to do it. If it’s something that you love then you’ve got to find a way to maintain and take time to do it. I do my homework in the studio. Like, get it done and then work and go home and do it again. I just keep working.
If you could collaborate with any three people, who would they be?
What else do you want to tell people about your upcoming music?
Get ready. I’m about to drop new and different type of music coming out. So just be prepared.
The new single “Drip” is available for download on all digital sites.
