Featured Artist interview: KING CYRIS (E44)

About: KING CYRIS from USA

"In 1995, I moved to the home of the Florida Gators in Gainesville, Florida and started a rap group called Southern Spice Flavor. The University of Florida asked us to do a fight song for the football team in 1997. However, we didn't get a chance to record the song because I was forced to go on a free vacation, compliments of the Department of Justice. Shortly after the trip, I got back together with the group. We opened for Trick Daddy, J.T. Money and the Poison Clan in front of a crowd of 5,000 people, and we rocked it. The fame lasted for about 2 months, and we loved every minute of it. Shortly after that, we joined a Rock-N-Roll band named Kitchens Of Soul. Now that was something serious. We performed all over Florida from Tallahassee to South Beach with artists like Sister Hazel, Creed, Seven Dust, One Drop, The Roots, James Brown, and a show for Playboy. We became stars, but along with that came the drugs; the more we did, the deeper I got. In 1999, I clocked out of the game for minute to refocus. In 2003, I relocated to Orlando where the King was born and reunited with the second love of my life: Music."
