King i Music exposes impostors in his new single
“Impostors” produced by King i Music
Available 5/28/21 from 77 Star Rise
Distributed by Tuff Gong International
For Immediate Release:
May 28, 2021
King-i aka King i Music exposes “Impostors” in his first single for 2021 from his own label 77 Star Rise distributed by Tuff Gong International. This fiery single is available 5/28/21 on all major digital music platforms.
In this world of virtual reality, King i Music delivers a thought provoking song about a social issue that has become more prominent in the current age of technology. Set to an upbeat dancehall style riddim, the core message of “Impostors” is to think twice before you cast criticism on a subject that you know nothing about.
King-i drew inspiration for this song based on recent events. King-i explains, “I saw a lot of people talking about Rasta and not fully overstanding what Rasta is and what it takes to keep the faith of a Rastafarian. The song expresses my opinion that people in general need to mind their own business and focus on themselves instead of creating a negative outcome speaking about another person’s business, especially behind the screen of an anonymous computer. As our wise ancestors say, ‘If you have nothing good to say don’t say anything at all.’”
He adds, “I call the song ‘Impostors’ because a person who has no knowledge or wisdom about a subject and tries to chat about it is simply an impostor.”
While the inspiration for this song was originally due to criticism of the Rastafari lifestyle, it is definitely applicable to numerous subjects and continues King-i’s goal of creating uplifting music to both educate and entertain.

77 Star Rise Releases Bricks Riddim EP
In 2019, King i Music debuts the Bricks Riddim, his first Riddim EP on his very own 77 Star Rise label.
The Bricks Riddim is a positive dancehall style riddim with three songs featuring King-i’s wife MoniKa with Top Shelf; King i Music with Not Perfect; and popular Trinidadian artist Khari Kill rounding out the EP with Too Loud.
Monika makes her mark on the riddim with the opening track and her debut single, Top Shelf.
It’s relationship themed from a female’s point of view, expounding upon the fact that relationships are complicated, questioning the reason for love.
King i Music hailing from Trinidad and Tobago is known for his creative and catchy lyrics coupled with a melodic chorus. His song, Not Perfect complements Top Shelf with a heart-felt response.The real life song delivers a powerful message that everyone can relate to - No man or woman is perfect even in a love relationship. King i Music sums up the inspiration for his song, Not Perfect. “It’s exactly as the title says. It deals with real life relationships. I’m telling the Empress in the song that I’m not a perfect man. People don’t realize that relationships are not perfect. Don’t put me on a pedestal because I may disappoint you - I’m not a perfect man.”
Fellow Trinidadian artist Khari Kill known for his break out hit Picture of Selassie I on his debut album along with several other chart-topping releases closes the EP with the a fun ganja themed song, Too Loud.
