TutTheKing broke new urban ground with his dynamic flows in the alt-hip hop earworm, ‘Forged’

Plenty of new hip hop artists have moved into the ever-evolving urban space in recent years, but few did it with quite as much flair as the 23-year-old Egyptian songwriter and sound designer TutTheKing (Nour Rakha). His recently released 2022 single, Forged, is the perfect introduction to his dynamic flows, infectious attitude and experimental sound.

With an intro that isn’t a million sonic miles away from the one that brings in My Chemical Romance’s track, You Know What They Do To Guys Like Us In Prison, it is safe to say that TutTheKing that is doing just as much for the obliteration of genre boundaries as Yungblud, Travis Barker and Machine Gun Kelly. The edgy-in-spite-of-being-high-vibe track is a rollercoaster through the artists refreshing luminary talent. He doesn’t stop at breaking genre boundaries. He also fuses his Egyptian roots with a little SoCal hip hop for the ultimate galvanising and refreshing effect.

The official video for Forged is now available to stream on YouTube.
