Victor Kim, a.k.a. Victor King, originally of Quest Crew—America’s Best Dance Crew Season 3 champions, has been working diligently to make his own dreams come true with the release of his first EP, available today. To build anticipation, the artist posted a series of 7 YouTube videos varying in content—from snippets of tracks off his new album, a tribute to his mom, and clips of him breakdancing. Of the newly released album, King says, “I wrote all of the lyrics and melodies on the EP, and each song is a very honest reflection of different times in my life.”
But there’s more to Victor King’s dream than just music: his own personal shoe line which he designed with help from his fans, sponsored by Tweak Footwear and inspired by his love for skateboarding, also debuts today, along with his website. King’s passion for living out his dreams stems from a deep-seated need to heal people emotionally through the art-form of music.
To celebrate, Victor King and friends are throwing an album release party on Wednesday, November 15th at Factory in West Hollywood, sponsored by MyxTV and Ketel One Vodka. The red carpet line-up begins at 8pm sharp, followed by performances from our favorite YouTube group, YTF, made up of members Chester See, Ryan Higa, JR Aquino, Andrew Garcia, D-Trix, and Victor King himself. You’ll also see these celebrity guests in tow: AJ Rafael, Wong Fu Productions, Dumbfoundead, Jennifer Chung, Jason Yang, JK Films, David So, Quest Crew, and more!
