LISTEN TO “IMPOSTORS”
King-i aka King i Music exposes “Impostors” in his first single for 2021 from his own label 77 Star Rise distributed by Tuff Gong International. This fiery single is available now on all major digital music platforms.
In this world of virtual reality, King i Music delivers a thought provoking song about a social issue that has become more prominent in the current age of technology. Set to an upbeat dancehall style riddim, the core message of “Impostors” is to think twice before you cast criticism on a subject that you know nothing about.
King-i drew inspiration for this song based on recent events. King-i explains, “I saw a lot of people talking about Rasta and not fully overstanding what Rasta is and what it takes to keep the faith of a Rastafarian. The song expresses my opinion that people in general need to mind their own business and focus on themselves instead of creating a negative outcome speaking about another person’s business, especially behind the screen of an anonymous computer. As our wise ancestors say, ‘If you have nothing good to say don’t say anything at all.'”
He adds, “I call the song ‘Impostors’ because a person who has no knowledge or wisdom about a subject and tries to chat about it is simply an impostor.”
While the inspiration for this song was originally due to criticism of the Rastafari lifestyle, it is definitely applicable to numerous subjects and continues King-i’s goal of creating uplifting music to both educate and entertain.
