Brooklyn rap artist King Piff has released his newest EP record, titled, “Loud Pack Music.” The album features six original tracks over approximately 18 minutes of playing time, and serves as a fine introduction to King Piff for music fans who may not yet be acquainted with him. These tracks each carry the infamous “Parental Advisory, Explicit Lyrics” sticker, which is appropriate for Piff, an artist who takes an especial interest in freedom of speech.
This is at least partially because Panama-born King Piff's mind is a well-oiled machine, and he is an artist with much to say. Luckily for fans of the hip-hop genre, he says all of it with rap, and his taste in rap is excellent. Among his most important influences, Piff names legends such as Nas, Tupac Shakur, The Notorious BIG, Ice Cube and KRS-1, all of whom are indispensable musicians. However, Piff's original inspirations to music are names associated with some of the best and most seminal hip-hop records, names which most rap fans have long neglected.
“I got started in music when I heard L.L. Cool J's 'Rock the Bells,'” writes King Piff, “and 'La Di Da Di' by Slick Rick and Doug E. Fresh.”
Most of Piff's themes on “Loud Pack Music” revolve around the ganja, and this is consistent with his personal philosophy about honesty in public. King Piff does his best to give people permission to speak their minds. In fact, the human mind is something Piff takes very seriously in general.
“The lead track...” Piff says, “is basically about my love for marijuana, the way it opens my third eye and allows me to meditate and heal. I want people to feel like it's OK to speak on their beliefs.”
Freedom of thought and speech are only two of his concerns, though. At the heart of King Piff's new EP is the love of old-school rap. “I’m bringing that real hip-hop back,” he explains, “where you had to be able to captivate the audience and tell stories.”
“Loud Pack Music” has a simple, yet beautiful message for Piff's fans, also, one that any music fan would do well to heed. “It’s cool to reach for the stars and your dreams,” Piff relates, “as well as to listen to your inner voice for reason.”
The hip-hop global populace can listen to King Piff's inner voice as recorded on “Loud Pack Music” when it is released online worldwide mid-March, 2013. Listen also for King Piff's music as featured in the upcoming HBO film, “The Cross Bearer.”
