King currently coordinates Urban Legends’ Youth Speak! writing and performance workshops for teens, and released her debut album of poetry and musical arrangements entitled “Life Lessons Poetically” at the end of 2018.  King is also responsible for the recent inception of Cap City Cyphers, a space for rappers across the city to unite and celebrate love and unity through Hip-Hop.
