Rap veterans weren’t the only stars to be impressed by Domani. LeBron James commented a number of exhaling and fire emojis on the post, while former world champion boxer Adrien Broner said: “One of my favorite rappers right now no cap I tell him all the time.”
Comedy legend Eddie Griffin added: “He Learned From The King N-gga!!!” while fellow comic Jay Pharoah said: “He’s like TI and J. Cole put together.”
King later explained the song was a way to talk about the impact T.I. had on his life.
“‘Father Like Sons’ describes my life off of the camera and the person that I am independently,” he said. “On this record I share genuinely how I am, I get it from my Pops who instilled this into me as a youngin. I was smaller than everyone and in public school by myself with nobody but me, and my brothers were at their mom house goin’ to different schools.”
He continued: “Pops taught me how to stand up for myself and take no shit and that’s who I am regardless of where I’m from, and what I come from. I stand on my 10 I was trained like that!! I’M NOT NO GANGSTA, NOT NO THUG, NOT DA TOUGHEST, but I STAND ON BUSINESS!!! I ain’t gotta act to be nothing. At da end of da day it’s in me not on me, IF U KNOW ME U KNOW, IF U DON’T GOOD.”
