Kingsley is a rapper, singer-songwriter and musician who grew up as high academic achiever, however, involved with a local gang, led to multiple near-death experiences and endangerment of his family. The musician says; “I have been rapping since 2006 and picked up the guitar to diversify my music in 2009.”
On his history with the UKCR scene he says;
“I have been around the gospel rap/grime scene around the era of the Gospel cypher scene and was rattled by how the opportunities that ensued and relative exposure cause many of my peers to lose their way and eventually faith.”
Covid + Kingsley
He has intentionally shied away from releasing music for fear of being sidetracked having witnessed the same shortfalls catch out his peers.
Lockdown caused a reflection and eagerness to keep doing what I do to use music as a tool to grab attention and preach to the lost!
That coupled with maturity in his walk with God gave him the confidence to put out this album G.O.A.Ts & Sheep.
Kingsley goes on to say; “Covid-19 shook things up with regards to the ability to do community outreaches and we migrated to streaming; coupled with maturity and reflection over the years; there is a lot to say admittedly which is reflected in this body of work”
More on the Album
It’s about Goats & Sheep & the G.O.A.T/Greatest Of All Time (Jesus Christ) & his Sheep (The Church).
The Treasure artist says;
“The common misconception is that Christianity is for sheeple who follow blindly whereas life outside of Christ offers no restraints with the freedom to live to its fullest. The truth is Christianity leaves you under ownership (Bondservant) of a good and faithful God who’d die to fix what we destroyed whereas the alternative is freedom in Sin that leaves bondages and leaves us enslaved.“
The album strings along on this premise of separation from darkness and the sovereignty of God. From hard-hitting melodic rap to introspective storytelling.
