Since 2001, King Cydal has produced tracks for San Quinn, Ya Boy, Big RIch, J. Davinci and many more artists. Many of those tracks became radio hits, such as Ya Boy’s “Turf to da Club” off of his “Rookie of the Year” album. In 2008, King Cydal released his first album titled “Ya blocks Host.” All but two songs on the album were produced by King Cydal himself.

For the Concrete Collection Volume 2 mixtape, he released a video for the first single “A Way Out,” which also received critical acclaim and several website features. Much of King Cydal’s current success has come from his mixtapes as well as from his ever-growing presence online via Facebook, Twitter and his official website, www.KingCydal.com, where he shares his entire journey.
