We had the good fortune of connecting with King Midwest and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi King, what do you want people to remember about you?
The power behind my work. Everything I do is for a reason and my work displays the power behind my purpose

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Being a music artists everyone thinks life is always fun and flashy but it comes with a lot of work and a lot of pain. I do it not only to be able to express myself and others stories around me, but I do it to connect with people and the community. My style is different because it’s influenced by so many different areas due to never really being stationary growing up. I’ve learned that if you look like me, nothing is handed to you, a lot of the higher ups don’t play fair, and the only thing you can do is fight through until they have to let you in, even then they won’t respect you but atleast we now have some leverage. It’s that leverage we strive for, that financial freedom.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Definitely to a Lakers game, if in season, universal park, and it’s not a complete trip unless you hit the dispensary

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Everyone in my life who I’ve come across. You gotta think everything that happens in life shapes us in someway either directly or indirectly. Still in the end success is only left to ones own will to continue.
