King Los Taps R. Kelly For “Glory To The Lord”


June 16, 2015

Baltimore rapper King Los is gearing up for the release of God Money War, the prelude to his forthcoming debut album and a stab at a second coming following his jump to RCA from Bad Boy (not to mention that fiery pep talk he maybe received from Diddy himself). He introduced the project with "Can't Fade Us," a lean DJ Mustard production that also features Ty Dolla $ign, and today he is premiering with The FADER another new track: a Da Internz produced, R. Kelly-featuring hymn called "Glory To The Lord." On it he counts his many blessings: I mean, I could have been broke in a Honda Accord/ Now I don't rock it if it don't say Tom Ford, and etc. Meanwhile, Kells crowns himself the R&B James Brown with a hardy hallelujah!

“I feel like I'm expanding the conversation on God," King Los explained in an email about the song to The FADER. "I want the church to understand the streets more and vice versa. People give thanks to God in many ways and when you’re from a poverty stricken environment the way you embrace God could be offensive to others but you have that right to love him in your own way. I'm thankful because I was supposed to be a statistic, but now I'm the one who made it out. Glory to da Lord!”
