Malki Means King
In the game since 2005
Malki Means King (Samuel Malki) is an American rapper and musician. Born January 28, 1986 in Oakland, CA and raised in the Bay Area, he grew up in Berkeley, CA. Malki is half Middle Eastern (Lebanon / Jordan) and European (Italy / Wales). Malki Means “King” in Arabic, and he uses this as his rap name.
Malki started recording music in 2005. He draws his musical style from all sides of hip hop, but you can always tell when it’s a Malki song. His voice is so distinct you can pick it out in a room full of people. His style is based around having fun and good energy, which led him to wear a crown in his videos. If you hear one of his songs and you don’t smile or laugh, you probably missed the point.
Over the years, Malki has been honing his craft, and putting in the hard work consistently. Not only is he a rapper, he is a producer, engineer and music video director. Along the way Malki has had cosigns from celebrities such as MC Hammer, and collaborated with platinum and billboard artists. In 2017 he had a viral hit “Mansion” that went mega viral on facebook and gave him a substantial buzz as an artist.
In 2020, Malki was the champion of “Beats 2 Bars”, a nationwide rap contest on the radio station Hot 97 in New York. It helped certify him as an emcee, because NY is known to be a tough crowd – and he won all the way from California. Later in 2020, he blew up on Tik Tok gaining over a million followers by the end of the year. He currently has over 4.3 Million followers on Tik Tok, growing each day.
Hip hop has made an impact on Malki, and now he is making an impact on hip hop. He gets his drive from his love of the music and he wants to inspire those around him in a positive way. His faith in himself and in God have led him to become the artist he is today. “I see myself as a legend. I see myself as one of the biggest artists in music. Through my hustle, dedication, passion for music and faith in God, I aim to make music that transcends genres, touches lives and changes music forever.”
