King Hot (@kinghot_1) – “We Up”



Recently West Coast rapper King Hot released his new music video for the track “We Up.” In the video the Sick Wid It Records signee rides around the city with his friends joking around, all while a random girl dances at the spots where they post up and film.

“This visual is called We Up – it’s just me talking my sh*t, talking my everyday life sh*t. It’s not super deep, it’s not any super meaning to it. I shot the video and wanted to do it organically. We were just jumping out rapping and doing some organic sh*t, just filming wherever we want,” King Hot said laughing.

Bearing an uncanny resemblance to Bay Area legend E-40, King Hot is actually the biological cousin of E-40 and a member of Sick Wid It Records that currently houses OMB Peezy, Nef the Pharoah, Cousin Fik, Work Dirty, Hitta Slim and affiliate G-Eazy.

“E-40 my cousin and that’s family, he my first blood cousin, needless to say he’s taught me a lot about the game,” King Hot explained. “You can have a mother f*ckin heart attack taking all this shit so serious – this rap game shit is so finicky, you just gotta really stay true to your self. Keep the laughter and keep having fun, that’s how my whole family is. All we do is just clown and joke around and shit. That’s how 40 is, that’s how the whole family is.”

Fresh off his appearance on the Sick Wid It Records compilation titled, The Year of the Pig,  King Hot looks to keep the momentum going with his own visual for the fans.

“Right now I’m just steady recording and working, just trying to stay consistent.  I had a single on the Sick Wid It compilation called, Bank Run. Now I’m just dropping singles and videos trying to get that buzz up,” King Hot said.

In addition to his own music, King Hot is working on developing an artist named ImNotJuly, who will be blessing fans with new music in the coming weeks and months.

“This year I just want to release more music and come out of my box a little more. I want my visuals to just be crazy this year. I’m just trying to do some different shit and I got a new talent I’m working with named ImNotJuly,” King Hot added.

Juju Castaneda a.k.a. Juju C. Stars in He Said She Said, Helmed by Dennis Reed II




Detroit Filmmaker Dennis Reed II Premieres He Said She Said on Tubi
Starring LHHNY’s Juju Castaneda, Lemastor Spratling and Chris F.
Slated for Wider Distribution in Coming Weeks
Soundtrack Available Now on All Music Platforms

Detroit filmmaker Dennis Reed II is well on his way to building a formidable empire without boundaries. Coming off successful releases like First Lady, First Lady 2 and Indictment: Who Is Jonathan Carter?, the ambitious author / director / producer is celebrating the release of his latest film He Said She Said, which premiered on Tubi here March 5, 2021 via Reed’s own DRII Productions and Homestead Entertainment. The official soundtrack is also available now on all digital platforms here:

Adapted from Dennis Reed II’s original stage play, He Said She Said takes us on a questionably romantic ride, where true love can’t necessarily stop the pursuit of outside entanglements. The rom-com stars cast members from the original play, Lemastor Spratling and Velda Hunter; along with Juju Castaneda, known best for her appearance in VH1’s Love & Hip Hop New York; and actors including Chris Flannogan, Mena Monroe, and Kaamel a.k.a. Diezel, who have all had roles in Reed’s films thus far.

“My team and I had the opportunity to build rapport with Dennis Reed before officially meeting the cast, and that was the first step towards my enthusiasm to join the movie,” Juju says of the experience. “The vision for the movie and relatability of the message made me eager to be a part of it. What I enjoyed most was the opportunity to really dial in to my first leading role, which I am grateful for! The cast was amazing! You would think we all knew each other prior to meeting – we formed such a tight bond on and off set. I’m ready for part two – wink, wink!”

Reed echoes the sentiment of the bond created through filming He Said She Said, and the way people will be able to universally relate to the story. “If you’ve ever been in love and hurt, this is the movie for you. Working with this cast was dope. In most of my movies we end up being family through the process, but with this cast, Lemastor and Velda were there, and the two of them were in the play, so this is really our baby. It was like a family reunion. We never wanted the day to end, because we were having so much fun!”

Being a triple threat isn’t easy, but Dennis Reed II definitely makes it look like a breeze, as he is currently also preparing the release of First Lady 3, the third installment of his successful franchise starring Nicole “Hoopz” Alexander, rap mogul Jim Jones and more. Reed’s other projects include True Law starring Lemastor Spratling and Black Noah, as well as the eight-episode series I Declare War, which also stars Lemastor Spratling and can currently be seen on Amazon Prime and Tubi.

The He Said She Said production team includes Knesha Daniels, Tamisha Howell, and Sanja Jackson, with Consulting Producer Nancy Oeswein and Supervising Producer Sonia Renee. Dennis Reed II leads the talented crew as Executive Producer, writer and Director.

“This is what I love most, other than my family,” Reed expresses. “If you said ‘would you do this for free?’ I’d say ‘Yes’, because I had projects that didn’t make a dime. But now it’s all coming together, so I am doing everything I can to be the best to ever do this.”


He Said She Said Synopsis
Sequoia is a nationally renowned art director who has done everything to be number one in her man Kenyon’s life. Ken is a reformed player – or at least that’s his goal. No matter how hard he tries, he keeps getting drawn into a web of women from his past – and some who want to be his future. Sequoia’s best friend Nika has been trying to tell her to move on for years. With his friend Colin encouraging his doggish ways, Ken finds it hard to stay true to the woman that captured his heart. Will his determination prevail?
