King Harris is a popular American rapper and social media celebrity. Born to two musical talents, Tip Harris (T. I.) and Tameka Harris, many friends and peers expected King Harris to take up music early in his life. However, despite an inclination to rapping, Harris was unsure as to what to do and decided to explore Instagram to pursue other interests. However, with the death of one of his idols, the American rapper XXXTentacion, he realized that he wanted to pursue music and in no time, released his first single through SoundClound. When this became a hit and was widely shared by his fans, Harris was motivated to perform in public and started touring the country. He performed live for the first time amidst a jampacked audience and was hugely praised by everybody. In a couple of months, he released his next single ‘Drip’ as well. Not only was he actively encouraged by his parents, but his mother even took the time to publicize his single on her Instagram page. Today, King Harris enjoys the success of being both a famous rapper and a social media influencer. He has over 500,000 followers on his Instagram account.
Rise to Fame
King Harris’s journey into stardom is unlike many of his peers. Born to two established and famous rappers, Harris had music in his blood. Even before he made a name for himself, his parents often featured him in their social media accounts. When he was just 11 years old, a video of him singing at his parents’ party surfaced and many media outlets expected him to take up a singing career, following the footsteps of his parents. However, he hadn’t completely decided as to what he wanted to do and decided to explore various social media channels to experiment with his interests and expand his horizon. He decided to join the photo-sharing app Instagram in June 2018 and first posted an image of the deceased American rapper XXXTentacion, expressing his sorrow over his death. After dedicating several of his posts to the rapper, Harris continued focusing on his music as he realized that he wanted to become a professional singer.
In January 2019, he announced his first single in collaboration with Tajiah Gary titled ‘Vacation.’ He uploaded this on SoundCloud and predictably enough, the song was widely shared by his fans and soon became a hit. In March 2019, Harris released his latest single ‘Drip’ and performed at a series of venues to publicize his latest single. His parents, too, were supportive of his career and cheerfully posted on their respective Instagram accounts about how proud they were to see their son perform amidst a crowd. Currently, Harris is currently performing live across many cities and frequently tours across the country. Many critics have touted him to be the next big Harris brother in the making who will establish himself as a dominant rapper in the future. For now, Harris is content with performing live and pleasing his fans.
Apart from his burgeoning music career, Harris is also a popular social media influencer and model. He currently has over 580k followers on his Instagram account and is frequently seen posting stories in order to interact with his fans. He was also a regular on the VH1 reality TV series ‘T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle’, which ran for six seasons.
