Growing up in the city of Cambridge, Fiya believes there was a good balance. He didn't have much, but he and his family knew how to make something out of nothing by any means necessary. Growing up in his (Port) neighborhood, he was faced with all the typical street elements any young urban kid usually goes through. "I did my best to get around it which lead me to making music" said Fiya. He initially wanted be an artist/manager before he started rapping, but after making his first song with some friends he later learned what his talent was. "After playing the music for people, they started telling me about it and I was like, I might have something here. So I just kept pushing on it, kept getting better".
As far as influences within the music industry, King Fiya believes he is his own personal influence. In the industry however, he respects all the people who bossed up and made music at the same time. "I look to all of them with no discrimination but for inspiration because at the end of the day an artist has to also be an entrepreneur if they want to take it to the next level".
Asking Fiya who he'd compare himself to within the industry, his answer was unique. As most artists would compare themselves to their favorite artists or whoever they've heard they resemble most, Fiya doesn't believe he can be compared to anyone. In his own right, he's creative with his bars and his catchy hooks too. If you listen to his music closely, he might remind you of a younger Smoke Dza because of similar topics and catchy flow.
King Fiya appreciates those who appreciate his music, plain and simple! While believing his music has great replay value, he believes years from now people will still play his older music and understand the joy each song can bring to every listener. "Above all, I hope I make music that makes people feel good. And I just want to make as many people feel good as I can with it".
