Critically-acclaimed producer araabMUZIK and Rey King, whose TLHD (“The Love Hate Demos”) project came out Wednesday (September 11), are planning on collaborating.
“araab is my homie,” Rey King told HipHopDX in an exclusive interview. “We came up from playing drums at church together, to him sitting me down and playing through five CDs of beats with 50 Cent on each CD in '07. We spoke about collaborating on some production during one of his last visits to Miami and it’s still in the works.”
Rey King also announced that a mixtape titled Black Friday 2 will come out in the near future.
South Florida-based emcee/producer Rey King released his debut mixtape, Young God, in 2009 and his second project, Black Friday, came out in 2010.
The Black Friday-crafter was involved in the creation of 18-year-old Latina singer Leslie Grace’s self-titled debut studio album. The IAMYG emcee co-wrote and co-produced Grace’s “Day 1,” a single that charted at #1 on the Billboard Tropical Chart.
The freestyle lyricist has contributed to records by faith-based artists like Rhema Soul, Social Club, Cheno Lyfe, Colin Ansby, Anthony Rose (Bizzle, Rhema Soul, Social Club), OG Muzik (L.O.S & L.O.J.I.K) and more. Rey will be featured on Rhema Soul’s forthcoming album, Dope Beats, Good News Vol.2, and he co-produced a single with one of Lecrae’s producers, Gawvi f/k/a G-Styles.
