Derek King Is Ready To Take On His First KMEL Summer Jam!

There's nothing like having a hometown artist perform at Summer Jam, and this year that artist is Derek King!

The Antioch native recently sat down with BIGVON from 106.1 KMEL to talk about when he got into music, his transition from playing basketball to rapping and the real reason he switched from rap to R&B...

Derek King rose to fame with his single "Tetris" which has over 1 million views on YouTub and that King also started a popular Instagram challenge called the "Tetris Challenge" where he put up a hilarious video of himself dancing with a pillow to through it back to the old school Vine days, and it took the internet by storm.

There's no doubt that the sky's the limit for Derek King, and we can't wait to see him take the Summer Jam stage!
