San Diego native KT Foreign is on the rise.
On the heels of the July release of his explosive Confidential album KT Foreign has joined forces with longstanding Los Angeles-based music management executives Adrian Swish and Pooh of DaTrap LLC to become a part of their joint-effort imprint Legendary Music Group. While Swish has helped manage artists such as Kid Ink via his Digital Curren$y distribution platform, Pooh and Da Trap are responsible for up-and-coming artists such as Mitchy Slick, Tylo Tinyamp, and more.
In addition to the release of his album, KT Foreign has managed to manufacture an undeniable wave of hype by way of a string of popular single releases such as his visual singles “Teletubbies,” and “Signing Day.” He also created a viral moment in April upon releasing his Suga Free-assisted “Free Game” single. The official music video has accumulated more than three million YouTube views between Bay Area music outlet Thizzler and media platform Worldstarhiphop. Not to mention he’s recently collaborated with artists such as RG and Sietegang Yabbie of San Diego, B3Glizzy, and more.
Amid his newly released effort “Greazy,” KT recently appeared in an interview with No Jumper co-host Tha Sharp One to discuss his unique come-up story along with all things San Deigo, Sem, and Siete Gang, his new music, and more.
And while KT Foreign is currently experiencing a wealth of limelight in the midst of his 2022 come-up, his rise to the forefront of the new wave of West Coast rap has been a tedious, years-long grind. Initiated by the release of his 2015 Grind Or Die project, KT Foreign built his fan base brick-by-brick with each release and in 2017 connected with Nef Tha Pharoah and Yhung T.O for his “War With Me” single which has amassed well over six million Spotify streams and counting.
