After gaining national attention for freestyling his way out of a traffic stop, it appears Long Island rapper King Myers has opted for alternative facts to keep his buzz alive.
The news of the fibbing MC’s latest fallacy comes less than 24 hours after he sent out an UrgeMusicHQ email PR blast, branding himself as “G.O.O.D. Music’s latest signee,” featuring a new single titled “Propaganda,” that took “a stand for all refugees” which was supposedly produced by Kanye West.
Except it wasn’t.
An email sent to HipHopDX from the law offices of King, Holmes, Paterno & Soriano, LLP denied any association between Myers and Kanye West or his label.
“Please be advised that King Myers is not signed to GOOD Music and is not otherwise associated with Kanye West in any fashion,” the email read.
The release of the song was truly well-placed timing, as it arrived on the heels of the discovery that Kanye had distanced himself from President Trump by deleting his previous supportive tweets. To further the avalanche of lies, King Myers took all the credit for Kanye’s turnaround.
“A few weeks ago I told @KanyeWest he needed to be the 1 to take a stand against @realDonaldTrump. None of this is coincidental,” he wrote before continuing “Me & @KanyeWest both decided that since impeachment is possible, why not call for impeachment at a time when it’s needed the most? @potus. Yall gotta understand how difficult it was for @KanyeWest to publicly show support for @realDonaldTrump & then TAKE IT BACK. He needed help!”
The “Propaganda” record garnered attention from various music sites and even CNN, due to the alleged Kanye West connection. HipHopDX has since removed the track from the site in light of these new details.
Myers even originally announced that “Propaganda” would feature Fifth Harmony defector Camila Cabello but her manager, Roger H. Gold, shut that down like the Atlanta Falcons’ Super Bowl offensive hustle.
And with a ballsy move, Myers tweeted Pusha T for a co-sign, but the jig was fully exposed with the GOOD Music president’s response.
This isn’t the first time King Myers pulled a stunt to gain notoriety. Last month, he released a single to SoundCloud titled “Puerto Rico,” which was purportedly produced by DJ Mustard and even featured the award-winning producer’s trademark “Mustard on the beat, hoe” catchphrase.
It was also followed by a suspect congratulatory DM from none other than Chris Brown.
HipHopDX reached out to Roc Nation to inquire about the validity of the track.
Their response? FAKE.
We also contacted Dave East’s management, who couldn’t confirm the validity of the “Do What I Do” record due to the nature of the Mass Appeal star’s strenuous work ethic, but there was an admission that Myers’ name didn’t ring a bell.
Following the Pusha T embarrassment, King Myers took to Twitter to relish in his newfound fame.
Let this be a lesson to all aspiring artists: you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.
