how you come to HipHop? What is influenced on you?
introduced to hip-hop music when I was 7. I remember that I fell in love with
hip-hop when I first heard “Nuthin But A G Thing” by Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg. My
influences at that time were Snoop, Dre, 2Pac, Jay-Z, Cam’Ron, and even Lil Jon
2.Why you decide
make music from where it come? How did you got your name King Flow?
One day I
was at my cousin’s crib and he had a beatmaking DVD in his room, I asked him if
I can use it to make my first beats, and he said yes. I was 9 years old, that’s
how I started. I got my name “King Flow” from my good friend and family Alyssa
Lawrence, from NY. She was in France when I was a kid and she wasn’t able to
pronounce my real French name “Florent” so she said “Flow” with the American
accent. That’s how I got my name !
your opinion of HipHop movement?Y ou see it in Kulture or its just term for
Buisness and Entertament?
that the hip-hop movement is one of the most creative movements ever. I see it
as a real culture, and not as a business, even if it is a business in 2013, so
you have to be able to handle your business correctly to do big things in the
industry. But I think you can perfectly mix both : the hip-hop culture and the
business side of the movement.
goals in HipHop?
My goal is
to be able to do good quality music, network with artists and people from all
around the world and make my family proud, by any means necessary !
Homicide Flow Ent. is?
Flow Ent is a record label and an association between artists, producers and
DJ’s from all around the world. The CEO is my brother Flowers.
think about DJ's that don't play vynyl? Do you think DJ's must play only vynyls
or is it possible be DJ without equipment like that?
I think you
have to start with vinyl to learn your craft, but you also have to evolve with
the technology. As long as you’re doing your job as a DJ, making people dance,
help new artists and get your money, nothing is wrong if you are not using
vinyls in 2013. We have to live with the technology.
about your projects.How many albums you have?
on a lot of mixtapes with DJ Arab, Stretch Money, Eddy Starks from France,
Flowers, and more good hardworking people. I did over 230 mixtapes in my career
and worked with Krayzie Bone, Ace Hood, Masta Ace, Blaq Poet, etc… I currently
have 6 instrumental albums out, and I’m working on my 7th album,
narrated by Dave McMurray. It’s coming on September 11th !
your plans on future?
Did you travel and make shows around world?
I just want
to continue to work with talented artists and stay productive and creative.
Yes, I’ve travelled to New York City, Upstate New York, New Jersey, Connecticut,
Dallas and Chicago. I did a few shows in Texas, New York and Louisiana.
your favorite DJ and Emcee?
DJ is JR Ewing, a French underground mixtape DJ. He influenced me to do quality
mixtapes. My favorite MC’s are Krayzie Bone and Big K.R.I.T.
dislike in people?

can say about Universal Zulu Nation?
This is a
movement that I respect a lot. I’m affiliated to the Nation because of my man
what is first in life Family or Work?
comes first, and work comes second. I’m nothing without my family, they’ll
always be there for me !
