A little bit about King Soloman: Originally born and raised on the southside of Brooklyn, NY, King Soloman found a deep connection for music at a very young age. In Spring 2012, both Soloman and long time friend, Producer Tariq Allen, began to create catchy beats whilst recording at their high-school(Edward R. Murrow.) After leaving the “Brooklyn life” and moving to Miami, Soloman was put on a hiatus, leaving behind a lot of unfinished music. By the Summer of 2015, he stumbled upon the local music scene in South Florida, putting his passion back into overdrive. After years of hardwork and reconnecting with Tariq Allen, King Soloman was reborn. The King introduces us to his creation of a boy who grew up in Brooklyn, showcasing a past of defying the odds and rising up against challenges. King Soloman’s audience can relate to his music in multiple ways. Combining a rhythmic flow with witty lyrics to grab the listeners attention, along with a brand of authenticity, it’s no wonder why King Soloman has the recipe for success. After releasing his mixtape; NYC 2 MIA, back in September of 2019, The King has been working nonstop with no intention of slowing down. Singles such as “Hands of Time” & “I Need That” have helped contribute to over 500,000 Spotify streams and counting. Visually spectacular music videos are always a must, and when it comes to the music production, it’s top of the line. It’s clear that King Soloman is making his mark on the music world.
“My latest single is “Everything 2020” and just like the title hints, my inspiration came from the year 2020. The pandemic really messed everything up, and I found it hard in the beginning to adapt. The world was in chaos and everything was on edge no matter what is was. By the time May came around, I was already numb to all the emotions, current events, and new communication methods but I still-King Soloman
needed some closure. At the end of the year, I took a trip to NYC and my longtime friend & producer,Tariq Allen, showed me this beat that he made with another one of my longtime friends, Sal Arena.Once I heard the beat, I knew that this was my closure and I began to talk briefly about my feelings from the past year. After listening to the recording, it was just really relatable and honestly something I’ve never done before. Usually I just get to rapping, but this was pure jazz. “Everything 2020” is a song you can listen to by yourself, in a jazz club, or even in a history lesson in school because it isn’t just me
singing the blues… it is me reminiscing about a moment in history that will never be forgotten.”
