King Xerxes is a Brooklyn-born rapper who has been penning his thoughts since the early age of 12-years-old. Hailing from Flatbush, King Xerxes has been blessed to have inspiration from a melting pot of backgrounds and cultures; which has prompted his desire to be versatile with his music releases. Growing up, King Xerxes listened to BK natives such as Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, and Fabolous. Since going to Ghana to shoot his viral 2019 music video “No Long Talk,” King Xerxes has kept his foot on the gas, amassing over a million streams on Spotify with his releases.
King Xerxes follows up his well-received “Drown” music video, with his new single, “I Am Me.” Balancing boastful lyricism with vulnerable rhymes about his day-to-day, KingXerxes lifts the veil and gives listeners a better idea of who he is on this chill, introspective track. He’s truly writing his own story.
“But I don’t give a f***/ Palms itching up / Wrote this in cold sweat / They can’t say it’s luck/ Wrote this in back pain, while my daughter flaring up/ Man that COVID shit a dub/ Feel like a cover up,” KingXerxes raps.Stream the GMP-produced cut below, and support on alternative streaming services here.
