Kinga World is a 20-year-old rapper/songwriter from St. Louis, MO. Kinga has always been surrounded by music and creativity from a young age, playing the cello at 4 years old and picking up the bass at 12. His father used to play old school R&B/Soul music like Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, and Michael Jackson around the house which inspired his love for nostalgic samples and live instrumentation. Kinga’s parents also placed an emphasis on education as well. Knowledge and wisdom were qualities that were valued in his family’s household. In Fall 2020, Kinga decided upon attending Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA where he connected with like-minded individuals to jumpstart his music career. Kinga released his first song “Glory” in October 2021 and has been consistently dropping singles ever since.

Describe THAT moment when you realized you’re doing what you were born to do.
Kinga knew that he was born to be a significant part of the music industry when he was a junior in high school in St. Louis. At 16, his admiration for music was greater than ever up to that point. He would often isolate himself during lunch period freestyling on popular beats, and watching music videos, or documentaries of his favorite artists. When he would freestyle with his high school friends, he was heavily encouraged to take it seriously and release music to the public. YouTube was also instrumental for Kinga as he would get lost in the suggested tab of “type beats” for hours. He would make full-length songs in an hour and carry himself like a celebrity would before he even released any music.
What’s been the biggest challenge you’ve had to go through and how did you grow through it?
One of the biggest challenges Kinga had to go through during his early music career was creating opportunities out of limited resources. He was never discouraged when analyzing his limited budget for studio time and promotion, but he knew that if and when he gets the correct finances, his career would take off even quicker. Being an independent artist, Kinga has to really be his own manager, promoter, and creative director, while simultaneously being a musician. He knew that it was best to create a passionate team, like the one he has now with The Elevator Creative, to help achieve these common goals.
Who are the TOP 3 people you’d want to meet that could elevate your career or business? Why these specific individuals?
Kinga World would want to meet and speak with J. Cole, Tyler, The Creator, and Mark Cuban. He believes that their creative and business prowess is similar to his own and he would leverage those connections that will reflect in his artwork.
