“Up until this ‘MAGiC!’, I had been known to my core audience as a rap artist who had a message to deliver and I think really the only sides people saw from me was that I was passionate about social causes and that I wasn’t afraid to be different,” says I.K.P. “Then Swanny River, my producer and mentor, had this track and I thought, this would be the perfect chance to switch my style up and give a vibe that was still compliments my personality, but gives room for a little more fun. All I can say is, so many different styles of rap inspire me. You get a little West Coast, a little Memphis, a little Texas, a little New York, a little of my hometown, thats the 757 Area (DMV), throw it in a blender and this came out”.
