Born and raised in Atlanta, Ga, C.J King was surrounded by musical influences from all genres including Rap, Hip-Hop, and Gospel. You hear these influences in the layered harmonies and melodies throughout C.J King’s music. Ironically enough, growing up in a preachers household, C.J was not allowed to listen to Hip Hop until fourteen years of age. He received a full ride scholarship from Liberty University, in Virginia, for rapping and toured with the University at music festivals around the country. Fast forward years later, with the launch of his first single "SWRVN", C.J's career launched quickly and caught the attention of music lovers everywhere as his purpose grew clearer. With releases such as “Church Boi”, and “Good Day", C.J compels audiences of all cultures to propel forward and believe in the promise.
