Atlanta’s KING J recently shared his debut EP, My Favorite Things, and now returns with the official music video for his Meltycanon-produced single, “Interracial Dating.”
With a unique Southern style, reminiscent to T.I., Outkast, and Gucci Mane, KING J hopes to spark conversations with this latest visual. “Interracial Dating” is an up-tempo record that features artists RobOlu and Jade who are also from KING J’s hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. The single was inspired by a rather personal story of KING J’s relationship with his girlfriend Priya and the complexity that many interracial couples face today.
“When I was making this song I was on the internet looking for beats and I was trying to find beats from Father’s producer, Meltycanon. Meltycanon produced ‘Heartthrob’ by Father and I really fucked with the percussion. I went to his site and found the beat to ‘Interracial Dating’…I knew I wanted to talk about me and my girlfriend ’cause we were doing long distance at the time and I always wanted to capture the uniqueness of my life even though I’m jus a regular dude rappin, so I decided to highlight interracial dating and flex that part of my life,” KING J shares.
