KingDozee pays homage to his Liberian roots with The Resurrection Mixtape which creatively reflects the ups and downs of the singer/songwriter/producer's life experiences. “Dozee was given to me as a teenager by a family friend, he called me Child Dozee.” He explains. As he grew older, KingDozee decided to drop the ‘child’ portion of his name and keep the Dozee. “I added King because my mother used to call me Soco Prince but I’m not little anymore you know, I’ve grown from the Child the Prince, and I’m evolving as a King now. It was only right” KingDozee developed a passion for music at an early age. As a child, KingDozee would transcribe lyrics for his mother. “She used to make me sit and listen to the song and then write the lyrics in her copy book so she could learn them,” he explains, “The first song I remember copying down was The Boy is Mine by Brandy & Monica. I was happy to do it because we had an agreement, I wrote down the lyrics, then got toys or whatever I wanted in exchange.” As a teenager, KingDozee worked as an apprentice with producer David Syndee. KingDozee shadowed David S Sayndee Jr. while he worked with major artists like Jonathan Takun J Koffa, Killer Lou, and NASSEMAN. “I used to breath over his shoulders because I wanted to learn how to program music, mix and master“ he explains, “I was never taught, I just learned from watching him work.” Later, KingDozee was introduced to one of his major musical influences, Luckay Buckay KingDozee joined Lucky Bucky on the road following his first album noting, “It was a learning process, I was there when he launched first album, there for the shows, the studio sessions, and video shoots. After that, I knew I wanted to do more than just producing, i wanted to be an artist.” “Right now I’m an independent artist, I’ll love to get a management team, production team, even an agent to help me grown, because i'm doing everything myself right now from my music production, promotion, getting booked, to my videos edits” he explains. KingDozee is currently working on his upcoming album and collaborating with other artists. KingDozee’s personal appeal and ability to reach a listener is a part of his whole package: a package that includes, his distinctive vocals and a relaxed singing style, and his reality and story telling message that makes you laugh and connect to his music. “R&B and HipCo is my genre". The R&B gives my music its vibe, and the HipCo is Hip-Hop mixed with Coloqua, which is broken English. Genuine and honest, KingDozee’s music is a step in a new direction: a trajectory that will lead us on a delightfully fulfilling path. " He divulged, “I want to be remembered as someone that influenced music for Liberian people but I’d also like to cross-over into other market and music genres. Music is therapeutic to my soul, When I sing or when I rap or when I’m creating music it just makes me feel good. I love the process.” - Alaina Nicole
