BeatKing initially caught, and held, our attention last year, when he teamed up with Gangsta Boo to drop Underground Cassette Tape Music, one of the best and liveliest mixtapes of 2014. And now, after having blessed us with "Stopped" in January and then reconnecting with Gangsta Boo on her Candy, Diamonds & Pills mixtape just last month, BeatKing is dropping his debut studio album, 3 Weeks, via Penalty Entertainment at the end of October.
On his lead single, "Show It," BeatKing conscripts fellow Texas fatboy Bun B for an aggressive bit of stripper talk and shouts out to Janis Joplin. "Strippers call me Zeus," BeatKing raps. I believe it.
