It has been said that birds of a feather flock together. And with a pun on the phrase and a co-sign from Guwahati’s own hip hop sensation Rocky Glock, King Bird is here to take over the hip hop scene.
Refaquat, aka, King Bird, is the latest name making moves in Guwahati’s rap scene with tracks such as ‘Hunnid racks’, ‘Mona Lisa’ and his latest banger ‘Pull up’.
Refaquat said that he had always loved birds since he was young. This, he told EastMojo, explains how he got his stage name. “I wanted to put something positive in my stage name, and birds reminded me of freedom, peace and tranquillity. That’s how King Bird came up.” King Bird stands for love and peace, he added.
Bird, who released his first track in November 2021, spoke passionately on what separates him from the crowd. “I have my own story to tell,” he said, adding that his whole approach and his distinct sound are what makes him different.
Bird says that he uses his music and hip-hop as a medium of expression. He said, “I can be completely honest as a rapper through my songs, put my opinion out there and still not mind being judged or hated,” something that Bird admits he struggles to do as Refaquat.
Produced by Guwahati-based producer Rick Skillz, who has produced tracks with Rocky Glock, J’97 and more, King Bird released ‘Pull Up’ on March 18, 2022. Bird speaks highly about the producer on his latest track, who is mentioned that he is also being mentored by. He said, “Rick is just all about the art, the culture, the sound.”
King Bird plans to release a lot of new music and visuals in the coming time and also plans to tour the whole nation in the next few years. We sure are interested in seeing what move the Bird makes next.
