Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Justin Essandoh (born November 27, 1985), also known as D.King or DK, is an American rapper, songwriter, and recording artist in the hip hop genre. The name "D.King" or "DK" is short for "Don and the King." Raised in Baltimore, Maryland, D.King began rapping at an early age, and in 2000 was managed by the mother of Beanie Sigel at Black Friday Management. That same year at the Hip Hop Summit, which he and a friend snuck into, D. King impressed the A & R of Roc-A-Fella Records with a demo tape. After a meeting with affiliates at Roc-A-Fella, D.King signed a deal with Jay-Z's former label, Carter Faculty, on July 18, 2001. Drawing inspiration from witnessing the creation of "The Blueprint," he completed his debut album. Due to a distribution loss, however, the label soon folded prior to its release. In 2005, under Babygrande Records, D.King made an appearance on Purple City's album, "Road to Riches," with a solo recording of "A Part of History." The single immediately gained attention as one of the standout performances on the album, which charted at #9 on Billboards Rap Albums.show more
