San Antonio-based MC RoyalKingMinus has seemingly always been about mixing education into the finely-tuned bars he delivers, from what I can tell. In the opening moments of The Regalia LP, his latest project, the reasons for this approach are laid out : the status of the hip-hop artist in the community, the responsibility that comes with their power, and the sphere of influence they create. This speech sets the table perfectly for the feast of rhymes and ideas that RoyalKingMinus presents the listener over the next ten tracks, with a style that morphs and melds to whatever beat is presented. I’m a new fan, but will definitely be a dedicated one based on what I’ve heard so far from RoyalKingMinus… I suggest taking some time and checking him out on your own.
San Antonio-based MC RoyalKingMinus reached out to me recently to see about some shows in the San Marcos and Austin area, so I did what I do and got him in touch with cats I knew were active. Then I did something I need to get better at, and asked him what his latest releases were, and GOOD GOD am I glad that I did. RoyalKingMinus has been hard at work on what he calls The Numbers Series, a series of EPs that deserves a deep dive based on the brief but brilliant The #’s Vol. 3, or at least that’s the case in my experience. The off-kilter production and rhyme delivery, heavily referential and smart lyrics, and the vocal samples that tie it all together had me wishing for more, and lucky me, there are 3 other entries in the project to check out. I recommend you do the same, and if you’re in the central Texas area, keep an eye out for RoyalKingMinus later this summer.
