King Hoodie (born Jean Raymond Jean-Philippe) is an American recording artist, label owner, NFT creator, actor, model and songwriter from North Miami Beach, FL. An insightful storyteller, King Hoodie’s lyrics and melodies embody the soul of the inner city entangled with strands of multi-cultural expression. Being of Haitian and Puerto Rican decent, his consistently impactful message pierces through his nostalgic yet, homegrown style and gritty tone. Often drawing comparisons to dynamic lyricists such as J-Cole, Kendrick Lamar & Chance the Rapper, King Hoodie creates a lane of his own and cements his place as a leader in this new generation of multi-genre hip-hop.
Raymond made his music industry debut with his 18-track mixtape, "Under The Bridge" released in 2015. As the founder and co-
owner of his indie record label imprint, House Of Pain Entertainment (a.k.a, H.O.P.E) , Hoodie has organically grown a loyal fan base through carefully curated experiences and masterful content. Releasing subsequent projects such as; "T.R.I.P", "Playgrounds Ep" and his 2019 mixtape "Figuring Out How To Drop Music." Hoodie is gearing up to release the next layer of his growing catalog with his highly anticipated “The Kid Is Unfinished” album set to be released later this year.
King Hoodie has been featured on Sway In The Morning, NPR’s Tiny Desk, Vibe Magazine, WEDR-FM 99Jamz, 1AMFest, SunFest, Getty Images and other highly notable platforms.
