Check out the new song from King Flo – Girl I’ll Be Your Daddy
Tell us about where you are from and how you got to this position today.
I was born in St. Ann Jamaica, West Indies and I moved to Montego Bay Jamaica when I was 10 years old. I spent most of my life there until February of 2005 when I migrated to the USA. I started my music career professionally in 2008, back then I released my first single called “We Need Hope.” Ever since I have been an underground artist waiting for my time to shine.
Tell us more about the current song you are promoting to everyone.
It’s called “Girl I’ll Be Your Daddy” by King Flo and features Robinson. This song is for the party, it’s really a club banger with the mixed genres of reggae/rap/hip/hop with a little R&B flavour to it. I released this single back in 2010, but it never got the promotion that it needed to make it reach the full potential.
Tell us about one of the hardest challenges you had to face in the industry?
My hardest challenge is breaking into the mainstream and getting my song out to the major players in the business, which seems like an up hill task. I guess you just have to be in the right place at the right time if you don’t know anyone in the spot light.
What was one of the biggest set backs in your career and how did you bounce back?
At this point in time looking back where I have been and where I am now, I can say it was when I lost my job and my apartment and I had to pack my studio up in storage – that stopped me from making music in my comfort zone. Even though I was faced with these obstacles I remained calm, put my shoulders to the wheel, worked harder, and dedicated myself to the task at hand. Knowing that after a storm there will be a calm.
What are some things artists need to be careful of?
In my opinion it’s bad influence from people and things that can make you lose focus and get distracted. I need not to get into details, but a individual needs to have a strong head if you wanna be in this industry, moreover if you wanna be successful.
What suggestions do you have for other artists like yourself?
Never give up on your dreams, doesn’t matter how hard it seems people will put you down to the ground. But always maintain your focus and keep a positive attitude. Believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to listen to other people or take advice from them. Information is vital weather it’s coming from a good or bad source.
What is one of your favorite ways to promote yourself and your music?
For now I use social sites like Facebook, Twitter, and my personal website hotterbeat.com. Also I attend a lot of open mic events. Word of mouth is one of my major tools. Not working with big budgets i learned to be resourceful.
