Changing His Name To King L From King Louie
King L: “Man, somebody already had King Louie trademarked. But that don’t mean nobody can’t call me King Louie no more. People just can’t stop calling me King Louie because that’s my name. Apparently, it’s a name from some Disney movie [called The Jungle Book], so they wouldn’t let me use it. Disney wouldn’t clear it.
“So my name is still King Louie to the world, but on paper it’s King L. The people still know who I am. It’s just a minor change, like Biggie was The Notorious B.I.G., because the name Biggie Smalls was already being used by another rapper. The fans know what it is, though.”
