Meet King Jesai

Born in Albany, Georgia and raised just northwest of Atlanta, King Jesai started recording professionally as early as the 10th grade! Fueled by life’s experiences and an inherent ambitious, self-motivated spirit, King Jesai produces timeless music that is a “feel-good” groove. His voice is melodic yet unpredictable, edgy, sultry! Over the years, he has maintained an unbreakable drive to make moves professionally and personally without excuse. This perseverance speaks to his successes in R&B/ Hip-hop music and has paved the way to substantial opportunities. Some of King Jesai’s industry credentials include recordings with radio personality Jazze Pha as well as writing and recording with Keri Hilson in Atlanta’s Dallas Austin Studio. Under MTS Management with Michael Stover as music manager, King Jesai will be releasing upcoming projects and booking LIVE performances.

His first release, “OnlyFans” hit the UK iTunes Top 30 Rap/Hip-Hop Songs chart in November 2023.

1 In Music: Ok… what about your performances? How do you prepare for them?

KJ: It’s weird but for some reason if I know I’m going to perform I won’t eat anything. I may go over what I’m going to perform a couple of times but that’s it.
