KING of AUGUST // Background

A blessed rapper with a relentless work ethic, KING of AUGUST, connects with every release. Since he began his rapping career in 2011, August has released more than 80 records and four mixtapes downloaded by thousands of fans under the moniker Kid Dop3. In 2013, he dropped his Busted Chucks mixtape, which received local acclaim for its polished stoner jam songs, and featured homegrown talents such as Mike Flowz, AETI and EscoJerm. He followed it up the following year with Introvert EP, an introspective look inward at the rapper’s pursuit to green pastures, which featured the woozy lead single ‘Empire 3’ and feature from a notable CT native ANoyd. Since then, he’s released a few loose singles to keep the momentum and fan base growing, such as the nostalgic ‘Cocaine 80’s’ and smooth ‘Ride’ featuring Dutch the Dreamer and AETI. Building from experience gained opening for other noteworthy rappers, such as Denzel Curry, Ab-Soul, Bas, and Chevy Woods, August set out to create a platform for high-quality media and a vibrant artistic culture within the community.

In 2015, August refocused his energy and began his own indie record company Gold Club Records and returned in August of 2016 with “Til Leaf Fall”, lead by the single “Drummer Boy”. This seven-track EP features some notable Connecticut natives such as Myke Green, Lonny X, CRSLYRC, Dom McLennon from BROCKHAMPTON and a few others. This project landed him his first headlining tour, hitting notable venues like the Webster Hall in New York and more across the US.
