"K. Luci - "KIN" Press Release"

Tell us about yourself and your music?

I was born and raised in New Jersey. I grew up my whole life with an interest in music and I’ve been actively pursuing a career in it since I wrote my first verse at age 10. I didn’t have a lot of friends and I was always getting into problems with people, so the music kept me out of trouble — for the most part.

How would you describe your sound?

My sound is mainly influenced by hip-hop, R&B, and alternative rock, since that’s what I mainly listen to. Even though it’s obviously hip-hop, I wouldn’t really label it as anything that’s out right now; I call it “Joatwave,” because ain’t nobody out making this kind of music but me, the JOAT.

Talk about the experience making your single?

Most music I release is created in the house, that’s where I’m most comfortable creating. Teyshon sent me the beat for “KIN” about a month before, then I sat down and recorded some drafts to it once I had an idea of what I wanted to do. Since Teyshon lives across the country, we can’t really share ideas as well as we’d like, but we went back and forth over the phone for a bit exchanging ideas and critiques on the track. After that, we fleshed it out and released it for the world to see.

What are you currently working on? Any new projects? Shows?

I’m currently working on a project executive-produced by me and Teyshon. Originally, it was going to be an EP produced entirely by me and him, but now it’s looking like a full-length album with some coproduction from some really talented artists I know. It’s coming together real nice as of now so we’re looking at a late-2019 / early 2020 release date if things go according to plan.

What has been your biggest highlight in your music career this far?

The biggest highlight of my music career so far has definitely been meeting Tim and Barry. I did an interview and a beat challenge with them while they were out in Newark. They’re really cool people, and I’m definitely looking forward to linking with them again (Thanks, Nadus).

Name your ideal collaboration: mainstream or independent artist(s)?

And ideal collaboration would be me, Lule, Che Ecru, James Fauntleroy, Tory Lanez & Eli Sostre providing vocals, with me, Gravez, Rascal, Wondagurl, Pi’erre Bourne & Mike Dean handling production. Would definitely be an opus.

Name something random that people do not know about you?

People don’t seem to know I’m a real ginger — I didn’t dye my hair this color, I’m a natural redhead.

What’s one thing you have learned or discovered while being in the indie music scene/industry?

The most important thing I’ve learned is connections and relationships are everything. You can’t get it all done by yourself, and chances are you know someone (or know someone who knows someone) who can help you get closer to your objective.

What can we expect from you in the future?

Besides the album, nothing else is set in motion so it’s best not to spoil it. Just know I have big things coming. - Pressparty

"HHV On The Rise: K. Luci"

The Garden State, New Jersey, is one of hip hop’s most-fertile breeding grounds. Not only are many of the biggest stars in music from Jersey, but many bubbling under stars are from the various cities. Adding to that legacy is K. Luci, who is beginning to make noise.

K. Luci is doing his thing, right now, and he is beginning to get people’s attention. Making good music and putting on a good show keeps people tuning in and K. Luci has found his groove. How he has done so is by being a JOAT, not GOAT, he’s a “jack of all trades.”

Recently, K. Luci took the time out to do an On The Rise interview, where he discusses his career goals. The rising rapper explains why he does what he does, and how that will lead to the big bag. There will be plenty to see from this promising artist, as the year comes to a close, with West Parke coming soon.

Read the entire interview below:

With so much focus on rappers trying to be the “GOAT,” what made you decide to hone in on being the “JOAT?”

For those who don’t know, “JOAT” stands for “Jack of All Trades.” With music, I like working on every aspect of the creative process myself to create something completely authentic to me. A lot of other artists don’t take the time to do that. For me, solidifying myself as the JOAT is one step closer to becoming the GOAT, because you can’t be the greatest without being yourself.

A couple of years ago, New Jersey was one of the hottest areas in hip hop, so do you believe you are going to bring it back?

New Jersey is just like every other music hotspot: it has its moments at the forefront. I can’t get everybody to look this way by myself, that’s obvious. There is an insane amount of talented individuals in this state, though, and I feel like we can all work together to come up and get the Jersey rap scene the attention it deserves.

One thing’s for sure, you have a dope single with “Kin,” what inspired this song?

“Kin” was inspired by the loyal ones I’ve grown with, as a person and an artist. In my life, a lot of people have come and gone. These people have stuck by my side through a lot, and there’s not much that I’ll put before them.

For some time, R&B and hip hop has been mixing, what is so different about your brand of music?

Everybody that’s mixing hip-hop and R&B is taking it in different directions. I think what separates my brand of music is the mix of influence from different sources. I like listening to a lot of different genres of music and they all inspire me in different ways to help me create this distinct sound I’ve found.

Can you tell us more about your new EP?

West Parke is an EP I’m working on with Teyshon. It’s meant to showcase what me and him are capable of when we get together, so everything you hear is produced by just the two of us. Then, once we get this done, we’ll be focusing more on concepts and creative direction for a full-length project.

How long have you and Teyshon been working together?

Me and Teyshon have been working together for over a year now. I met him when I first got involved in this music collective, DWTNDOLLARS. We talked back and forth for a bit, then he sent over the beat for “Apologies” and we’ve been making music together ever since.
