Serious Voice is an award-winning rapper based in Brooklyn, New York. Not too long ago, she released an appealing music video for her brand-new Christian rap single, titled, “Kill Tha King,” via Serious PPL Music. The song brings listeners to encounter and contemplate the “kings” in their lives.
Serious Voice – “Kill Tha King” single
The Kareem Caines-directed video is set in the seductive drip of Miami Beach, where we walk with Serious Voice through scenes of temptation, drunkenness, and social flaunting. Without being critical of the people involved, she calls out the futility of the patterns of praise we offer to our modern and hollow gods. Her sword of a tongue is geared toward those behaviors, while her embrace of hip-hop welcomes modern seekers into a new spirit of being. Director Caines holds nothing back in depictions of our devils so that viewers can confront their vices in the no-holds-barred context of Serious Voice’s powerful words. Take a brave step towards your spiritual growth with a fearless friend at your side.
‘Kill Tha King’ finds Serious Voice relaying a modern transcription of the prophet Samuel’s warnings of idolatry. It takes some serious wisdom and ingenuity to meaningfully interpret such a passage, and only an artist of Serious Voice’s caliber can do so with such infectious energy. With the subtlety and coolness of Kendrick Lamar, she almost unnoticeably calls out our modern kings: the substances and processes we worship and go to for salvation, like strong drinks, sex, and validation. With a hook you can’t help but chant along to, Serious seals the deal by imprinting a message we can’t ignore: if we don’t kill these kings, we will be enslaved by them. Facts.
“I’m killing the king Cuz without God I am nothing.”
Serious Voice isn’t in it for riches, fame, or even love of the game. No—her wellspring of flow, wit, and wisdom is leveraged in the name of truth, praise, and salvation. Coming up on hard streets and an often-harder home life, young Brigitte James found dual pillars of solace in her Christian faith and in the example of bold, Black female rappers like Queen Latifah. Her faith soothed her struggles and challenged idols of the modern world, while her love of music offered her a medium of expression—apt to match those struggles and shatter those idols.
“Your idol is king He got your affection”
After releasing her debut single, Serious began making a name for herself in the New York rap scene. Sharpening her skills in performances across the boroughs, she eventually released her debut album, “Shofar,” containing the track “Whoa,” which fatefully landed on Spike Lee’s Netflix series, “She’s Gotta Have It.”
Spreading the Word like wildfire in her unique manifestation, she landed a performance at SXSW on Sway in the Morning and began to garner a following that heartily received her homage to the strong women in her life, her 2021 album, “Beautiful.” Now we anticipate her further revelations, due out later this year on her upcoming EP, “Back2Basics.” Stay tuned for your spiritual tune-up with Serious Voice.
