Hailing from Southeast San Diego, KT Foreign was exposed to all walks of life at an early age. From the lives of the wealthy in touristy areas of San Diego, to the hoods of Southeast San Diego where he grew up, KT Foreign is well-rounded when it comes to navigating his way through the world in all circumstances and places.
“I’m from Southeast San Diego, the Southeast side for real for real. You could compare it to a South Central of LA as far as the type of city it is, it’s just more of a hoodish part, but we got hella different spots in San Diego that are nice. La Jolla, Mission Bay, Point Loma. Its hella cities out here,” KT Foreign said of San Diego.
A protege of Mitchy Slick, one of San Diego’s most active representatives, KT Foreign developed a style all his own, and he’s starting to gain traction amongst West Coast rap fans that appreciate his clever and calculated slow flow.
“Me and my camp came up with our own style for real. When we first started we were catching on and we started making our own shit and people started f*cking with it.”
The style and approach worked as through mutual friends KT Foreign was able to negotiate a verse from legendary rapper Suga Free. Aligning for one song, the two traded mackin verses on the new track that captures years of game at work.
“I had someone hit him up, she contacted him and she got Suga Free on the phone. I didn’t expect that to happen. It was a spur-of-the-moment kind of thing and he sent the song in.”
With most songs on the project getting the video treatment, from the Bino Rideauxfeaturesto the Kalen FrFr track, KT Foreign has plans to release 7 music videos from the project.
“We got our own terms, we got our own lingo, we got our own everything,” KT Foreign said. “You will see it in the upcoming videos, watch!”
