Curtiss King has been making noise on the West Coast for a few years and is now promoting the release to his 2012 debut album.

Recently sitting down with HipHopDX Senior Features Writer Ural Garrett, the Bellflower, California native spoke about his recently released Raging Waters LP.

“It was a long three-year process aside from just music it was a life transition for me and things are really in a great space right now and when I created it, I just had the ultimate freedom just to do what I wanted to do creatively,” he said via a segment of today’s (September 30) DX Daily. “Imagine you waking up in your comfortable bed and you wake up the next day and you’re in the middle of the ocean and you can’t see land for miles on either side and that’s what life felt like for the last three years.”

Curtiss King also explained the dynamic between his production side and artist side.

“The production side helps balance the artist side and likewise because I never have to focus on one or rely on one so heavily that I run the creativity dry,” he said.
