Sam King started making Hip Hop beats in 2001. Through the 2000s he produced many sample style tracks for various prestigious New Zealand rappers, while quietly writing and recording original music in his studio on his quest to become a complete solo artist.
In 2010, he co-wrote a hit pop single for Dane Rumble. “Cruel” was the most performed work in New Zealand that year, for which Sam was awarded an APRA Silver Scroll Award.
Since then, his musical journey has taken a more personal route. Sam studied music at University, started a band, and became the singer/ rapper /songwriter / co- producer for New Zealand Hip Hop duo Baked Beings.
