King I Divine


Years Producing:

7 years

What tools and/or production software do you use?

Mpc1000, Reason, Logic

Head phones or monitors?

I use headphones now since my neighbors have complained way [too] many times [laughs].

What production work are you most proud thus far of in your career?


Divine ScienZe

album I released on March 13th.

What should readers expect from you in the coming months? (Projects, Singles, Albums, etc…)

I have projects with blctxt (Black Text) and LD Henriquez coming out later this year, as well as an instrumental album, so be on the look out for those.

Describe the process by which you "Re-Produced" Torae's Do The Math record?

I basically loaded up the song in Logic and vibed with the lyrics for about 30 minutes. Then I went to the crates and found a sample I felt went best with the energy of the lyrics and then went in on the record.
