Q&A with Louis King

Why was this project created? 

Famous in the Metaverse breaks through the boundaries of traditional projects and sets the tone for a world where artists are given the opportunity to take back control of their ownership, where artists are judged for who they are and what they are bringing to the world instead of how much clout they have on social media.

Why did you choose these featured artists? 

Each specific artist was chosen based on a connection I have to the artist or their music. Something in each of these artists speaks to me and the message I wanted to send in Famous in the Metaverse. Also these legendary artists were bold enough to take a chance on an independent artist, prioritizing my music, lyrics and who I am as an artist over the fame (or lack thereof). 

What was it like working with these collaborators? 

Ab-Soul and Krit were the first to jump on the project. Soul doesn’t do many features in general so that was very special! Krit said he wasn’t doing any features because he was focused on his album but said once he heard the song he couldn’t help but write a verse. 

Snoop has always been a great support in my career and he was a dream to work with on this project. I will always value kindness over fame. A coach of mine used to say “it’s nice to be important but it’s more important to be nice,” and Snoop is an excellent example of that. 

How has it been working with Gala?

Working with Gala Music has changed the way I think about music, art and entrepreneurship. Gala helped me to shape my vision and execute it every step of the way and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to work with such a fantastic, innovative and hardworking team.
