Holli Osiris King


Read the Holli Osiris King Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name is Osiris, I am currently an underground SoundCloud artist from the DMV. I started writing music when I was 18 years old, listening to artist such as Nas, Foxy Brown, Jay-Z, Eminem (the list goes on). Just about two years ago I started releasing tracks on my SoundCloud page, gaining lots of plays from the promoters working with me. My song Tokyo got 8,000 plays & it’s not even mixed properly, none of my songs are mixed properly but, it just goes to show that people can still appreciate good music. I am currently working on getting back into the studio, I have been away for awhile now & I have so many songs written that I might just do an EP to hold me over.

How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


Being that my biological father is from NY, I’m hugely inspired by the NY rap scene. Just hearing the braggadocio feel of NY rap & just the smoothness of songs like “You’re All Need” by Method Man & “Watch Dem Hittas” by Nas is such a vibe. Um as far as new rappers, I think Lil Uzi Vert is really dope, Dave East is another NY rapper that’s dope. As a growing artist whose constantly writing & professing my skill as a rapper, I do believe my taste will change overtime, it sorta has already.


What´s new right now?


I am currently working on an EP right now, I found two really great pruducers by the name of Chuki Beats & Retnik Beats. I just finished all of the writing, found the beats & now I’m just ready to get in the booth. You guys can follow me on my social media @IAMHOLLIKING on both Twitter & Instagram, I will start tweeting about my upcoming releases, events etc.

Are you a superfan of anyone? How did you become a superfan? Do you remember how you become a fan and what turned you into super fan? Have you ever thought about why you´re such a fan?


Michael Jackson & Bob Marley of course, they represented love for another and their spirits were very welcoming. Their music is untouchable still to this day I’ll play their songs & get the same feel I got from the first play.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?


As far as songwriting, I used to get cloudy thoughts mainly because, I was forcing my brain to spew out words. Now I just let the beat flow & write down whatever words or thoughts come to me. For artist who are also songwriters I recommend using RhymeZone, it helps a lot.
