Rising Stars: Meet King Tut King Shad

Today we’d like to introduce you to King Tut King Shad.

Hi King, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Well, growing up, I played football & went to Hamilton High School. I didn’t start making music till after I graduated. When I first started making music I was doing it for the fun of it just messing around with some of my friends.

One of my friends had the little studio set up in his closet in his grandma’s house so everyone pulled up there and would just hang out and mess around on the mic. As time went on, I started really gaining a passion for it, kept recording, & finding my voice; the better & better I became at it.

My music was way different then compared to now. Coming out of high school, I didn’t have anyone telling me to go to school or I had to be somewhere so I started hanging around different types of people and getting involved in stuff it changed what I rap about & what’s being said in my raps as well. I have gotten this far by simply believing that I can be the next bigger rapper & trusting the process.

I grind more than anything constantly in the studio && constantly looking to be a better artist. I took risks some that worked out and some that didn’t everything I did was trial and error. I wouldn’t change anything music-wise with a process that I’ve gone through.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Music has a lot of ups & downs. You have moments where everything is going well & then you have slow periods. The biggest struggle that you have is being consistent and finding ways to stay relevant & being different.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
I make Music/Rap. I am a very big artist here in Arizona. I have cosigns and have performed with big artists such as Dababy, YoungBoy never broke again, Lil Tjay, Nle Choppa, Blueface, and the list continues.

The biggest thing I’m proud of is that I kept going when everyone told me to stop rapping. The biggest thing that sets me aside from others is my smile. and my pure energy & my worth ethic.

Is there a quality that you most attribute to your success?
Consistent, driven, handsome, physique, relatable, anti-social but outgoing when needed to be.
