KINGFISH is an up and coming underground artist from VALLEJO, CA who refuses to be placed within any particular style or genre of hip-hop. The music he creates is widespread and universal in style and lyrical content. He is the producer (X3C aka The Exec), writer, perform and visionary of his own works and delivers sounds that are NEW and FRESH to the world of music and hip-hop.
As a seasoned MC (40 yrs old), he has MASTERED his niche for creating art in the form of sound. His influences as an MC range from LL COOL J to E-40, from RAKIM to OUTKAST, from COMMON to METHOD MAN. Yet, from song to song, it is clear that he has developed his very own style and sound. As a producer, he has been inspired by beatmakers such as DR. DRE, TIMBALAND, PHARRELL WILLIAMS, DUNGEON FAMILY, RZA, JAZZE PHA, HI-TEK and many others.
“I am a creative being by nature and draw inspiration from many different sources…sometimes its not even a sound…it could be a photograph or the color of the sky. My sounds reflect my varied influences and inspirations and my lyrics are a true reflection of who I am as an individual. Some will love it and some may not like it at all…but I’m never gonna stop doing ME.” - KINGFISH
