For those who don’t know Compound, he is one of Los Angeles’s top rap prospects who has been gaining immediate traction in the last few years. What most don’t know about the thriving rapper is that everything didn’t always start easy due to him being incarcerated for a period of time. Even with these setbacks, the rapper has still found a way to generate success.

Compound grew up in Madison, which is a medium sized city located in Wisconsin. There, the artist would often get into trouble with the wrong crowds. This eventually landed him in federal prison. While in prison, Compound knew that he was destined for more and made a change once he got out.

Once released from prison, the rapper began putting his full energy into music. Not wanting to waste any more time, the rapper would network and find connections that would soon take him to the next level. In 2019, Compound released his first sound and now has amassed over 100,000 fans who listen to his music on Spotify, Apple Music, and other platforms. He also has gone on to perform in front of 5,000 people.

Although prison was a setback for Compound, he realized how valuable his time was and went straight to work building his career. Being released with a fresh start was just what the rapper needed, and he has now gone on to perform in front of thousands and generate fans into the hundreds of thousands.

“It ain’t where I’ve been, but where I’m bout to go!” – King Musa

Born to Egyptian migrants, King Musa was raised in the rough Mar Vista Gardens Projects in Los Angeles. His parents, seeking a better life, escaped poverty in Egypt and moved to LA to provide opportunities for their loved ones.  Seeking a distraction  from the challenges of his neighborhood, Musa fell in love with the game of basketball and became skilled, eventually playing high school at Venice High, college at Cal State Northridge from year and semi-professional for the San Diego Surf Basketball Club of the American Basketball Association (ABA) from year 2013-2014 season. After finishing his career, Musa transitioned into the corporate world. While working in the business world, he began to elevate but quickly realized he was working full-time as a professional yet seeking something greater. That something greater” turned out to be music, and Musa has dived in full force by recording and dropping his first project called No Nights Off in 2015.  He went on tour performing at icon venues such as the House of Blues in LA. He quickly manifested a unique sound, infusing the culture of his Egyptian heritage and Los Angeles upbringing into a modern sound perfectly constructed for turning up and having a good time.    

While Los Angeles, CA rapper King Musa dedicates late nights and early mornings on his future, his unique career path differentiates him from a large sector of the hip-hop scene. The former basketball player turned successful entrepreneur made a sharp turn in his career trajectory and shifted focus from the corporate industry to the music industry. With a special blend of LA swag and international flavor, Musas style reaches wide, and he looks to share that sound in his 2020 single, You & Me. Most recently he has cracked over 15 thousand streams on his hit single called ‘Want it All.’ Now he doubles back with a 6 track LP titled “A Superstar” which features MB Salone, and RogWill to name a few.

Combine his energetic sound with his unbridled passion and unique journey to becoming a recording artist, and King Musa has the foundation to become an international star and an icon in the music game.  He is immensely inspired; he wont stop or give up until he creates music that inspires, influences, and has a positive creative impact on the world, respectively. That is his biggest focus, and as he often quotes, “… where the focus is, the results will flow”.
