Interview with KD Datking (@kddatking
Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?
I have been interested in the entertainment field sense the beginning of my music career. My Artist name was originally KD Datkid ( kid = Goat) through the years I feel like I’ve grown into a King. In this transition my name changed From KD DatKid to KD DatKing, And so did my music. After dropping several mix tapes and albums in Washington DC. I stepped back from the Music scene to focus on my family. Now I’ve reinvented my self into a influencer and a mentor for people that want to be successful in life weather its finances or relationship etc, I plan on becoming the next “big thing” out of DC and become a household name when it comes to being successful!
Can you share the most interest in exciting happened to you since you started doing this?
My most interesting story would be when my old promoter had booked me to perform at club in Philly. He promised me 50% of the door as payment. So me being new Artist I had no prior experience with any finances when it came to the music business. So long story short I put on one hell of a show and after, the promoter did not communicate with the venue on what my pay should have been. We argued about the payout and one thing led to another and me and my crew took what belong to us to make it sound sweet . Ha ha ha
Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?
I would suggest to keep a good team of people around. Sometimes having the wrong people around cause problems that could of been avoided, especially when it comes to the bag.
None of us can succeed without some help along the way. Is there a particular person who you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story? *
I want to thank GOD first and foremost. Secondly I want to thank my children, my wife, and my mother.
How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?
I definitely try to bring good to the world. I gave out money to people, and the community. I also have given food to the homeless. And every day I try to spread love..
Do you have a favorites “written Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?
“No weapon formed against me shall prosper.” That quote resignates with me because, I have been through alot of trauma. So no matter what I’ve been through I continue to shine and let God lead the way..
