M.U. 7 Panelist Profiles: Craig King

Craig King was hired to be musical director on the most ambitious tour that Will Smith had ever been part of…it was called “The Greatest Hip-Hop Tour in the World.” The tour featured Public Enemy, supported by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Naughty-by-Nature, Kid & Play, Queen Latifah, A Tribe Called Quest, Busta Rhymes, and the Ghetto Boyz.

"I remember talking with Latifah at great lengths about her dreams of becoming an actress, this was a time when anything was possible in Hip-Hop,” King recalls. I was wanting to break into the musical mainstream and start working with artists determined to grow roots in the hip-hop game.”

King was introduced to hip-hop mogul, Eddie Farrell. King found himself working with a monster development company, “The Untouchables”, responsible for the careers of Sean ‘Puffy’ Combs, Heavy D, Mary J. Blige, and Donnell Jones, to name a few. King has also provided instrumentation for Kanye West’s grammy award winning hit song “The Good Life” from his Graduation album.
