Tell me in a few words, who you are. How would you describe

yourself in a short story.

My name is Greg Kyng, I'm a rapper, singer, and songwriter from

Atlanta, GA. My music consists of different musical elements,

because I refuse to be a one dimensional artist.


• What’s your stage name and how did you come up with it?

My stage name is Greg Kyng, Greg is apart of my middle name which

is Gregory, while kyng is taken from my fathers last name.


• What got you into music?

A Childhood friend got me into making music, the same friend who

would eventually become my producer who goes by the name of The

Alumni.


• What was life like growing up?

I was a loner growing up, I could be social at times, though a lot of

times I would prefer to go solo and do my own thing. I had a bad

temper growing up, and that got me into a lot of trouble. The thing

that calmed me was music, it was definitely the therapy I needed and

helped me get through life.


• Who is your inspiration? What keeps you going to get up daily and

put effort into your music career?

What keeps me going is the feeling that I haven't given everything I

got. I feel like there's more for me to do. I'm just not satisfied where

I'm at right now, and until I reach that point I will never stop.


• What is your creative process like? What is the meaning behind

your current single?

My creative process starts with me playing the beat, after that I start

to mumble a bit and get a feel for the beat. After I get the feel and

rhythm I start writing the song out, I usually type it on my phone,

though I'm starting to write more music with a pen and pad.

The meaning for the current single show me, is that I wanted to make

a song that would get the people moving, a smooth club joint was the

mission. According to the feedback that I have been getting, the

mission was a success.


• What is the name of the current single/ep/album that you are

pushing? Do you prefer people to buy it or stream? And why?

The name of the single is called Show Me, and I would prefer people

to buy it then stream it. The reason being is because I plan on

charting on the billboard this year.


• With the industry changing so much, would you stay indie or sign

to a label? Why and why not?

I would prefer to sign a major deal after I gain some leverage, as

nowadays there are so many stories of artists signing bad deals who

didn't have any leverage to help get them.


• Do you feel like the music industry has went down since the

pandemic? Why or why not? Where you affected by the pandemic

with music or everyday life?

The industry has definitely took a hit, mainly when it comes to major

touring, which is an area where a lot of artists make a good amount of

their money. The pandemic affected me to a degree, as the gyms

were all closed and I had to resort to working out at home for awhile.


• If you were give a chance to sit down and have a business dinner

with a celebrity who would it be and why?

It would be Kanye West, the man is a musical genius point blank. I

would like to pick his brain and absorb some knowledge from him.


• How do you balance everyday life tied into your music career?

I balance it by having a set schedule everyday of when to focus on

music, though I have went off schedule a few times, but for the most

part I have good with keeping up with it.


• Tell me about your most memorable moment in your career?

Currently the most memorable moment in my career, would be

seeing a 100,000 streams on a song, that song would be Way Up. As

of right now its sitting at 152,000 streams on Spotify.


• What style of music do you prefer to make? Would you ever try

a different lane?

lanes, and I'm starting to see more success switching it up every now

and then.

I don't have one particular style, If it looks good then I'm wearing it.
