Kevin King, professionally known as Kevin Crown is a professional DJ and the owner of a sound system/DJ group called “King Crown.” Popularly known as a “Natural Club Killa,” Kevin is not only loved by fans but also greatly respected by his contemporaries. Kevin is from Brooklyn, New York. He is known both for his dexterity and unrivaled skill on the turntable. Kevin is also widely known for his undefeated energy while playing on stage with skills that are truly unmatched, unique, and authentic.
Kevin started deejaying at the very early age of twelve. Growing up in Brownsville, which is a rough part of Brooklyn, he was forced to always stay indoors by his parents. This propelled Kevin to start playing around with his father’s home deejaying setup. Also, Kevin is not just a professional DJ, he is also a trained electrician by trade. He went through an apprenticeship, has a college degree, and is also a member of a local union of electricians. Aside from being a DJ, Kevin has practiced for many years as an electrician.
However, there was a time in his life when he had to choose between his music and his trade as an electrician. Working in construction as an electrician was rather too inconsistent for Kevin. Sometimes he would work for six months and be off work for another five or four months. But, he always found himself deejaying week in and week out, be it in the rain or under the sun. It didn’t take so much for Kevin to know that deejaying was rather more consistent than his trade as an electrician.
An inspirational incident for Kevin was after he had a long weekend of deejaying in Cancun, Mexico, for over 7,000 people. On his way to work the next day, he fell asleep on the wheels and resultantly ran into the back of another person’s car. Although there was no major damage to both his vehicle and the other person’s, and also no injuries, he felt a strong urge to call his boss and take an indefinite leave of absence. This was when Kevin’s daughter was just a month old. He never went back to his construction job ever again. According to Kevin, he is happier and more financially stable compared to when he was working for someone.
A challenging time in Kevin Crown’s deejaying career was in 2010 when he was stabbed in his left arm, which resulted in a severed radial nerve. This left Kevin disabled for almost a year. During this time, he had to be deejaying with only one hand. To Kevin, hard work remains a virtue, and he regards his parents as his biggest influence for consistently grooming him to value and respect the dignity of labor. His greatest accomplishment is being able to maintain relevance and stay active for quite a long period.
During the pandemic, Kevin developed an online presence that was very significant to a wide number of people. He started the “Kevin Crown Morning Show” which aired on Monday through Friday (9 am-12 noon). It started on Instagram and proceeded to Facebook and then YouTube and finally Twitch, where he found a great international following. These shows helped a lot of people during the quarantine. Apart from music, Kevin is also into fitness and sports. He is a Fourth-Degree belt in Taekwondo. Kevin Crown is back to performing and touring. He looks up to producing his music, doing more collaborations, and just grabbing more commercial opportunities.
