King Mushu is the founder of UnderGround Paradise Records, a small label made up of extremely aware individuals who are actively involved in their community, facing issues like drugs, homelessness and injustices. Among their many achievements, they have sent hundreds of gallons of water to Flint, Michigan, and have been helping feeding homeless people since 2015. “The idea,” say King Mushu, “is to give back to the community as much as possible. We all have a mission in life, understand yours.” The label, whose motto is “One team, one microphone”, recently released the album “The Rise of King Mushu” Part 1. “The album is part of a trilogy which correlates with the rise and fall of the sun, representing the fire that the King Dragon spits,” explained King Mushu.
This album is absolutely amazing from the beats, to the lyrics, and the different styles of flow and delivery it has. This is one of the best albums I’ve ever heard from the genre in a long time. He mixes 90 type lyrics with a revolutionized flow and the beats are outstanding. Every song comes packed with multiple meanings behind the bars and it actually takes a few listens to completely understand the hidden meanings behind them. Some songs sound like they’re just for partying, but references Egyptian and Greek mythology.
“The idea,” say King Mushu, “is to give back to the community as much as possible. We all have a mission in life, understand yours.” At a time when other artists settle for less, King Mushu displays a commendable self-awareness that is expected from someone whose music runs parallel to their personal endeavors and experiences in life.
