King created a record label, and the name is “Family Ties Only.” When asked about the meaning, he stated that “Family Ties Only is everything to me,it’s for the ones who I consider family and have been with me through it all, way before I even started rapping.” After using Soundcloud for a period of time he would then transition to putting music out on Spotify, Apple,Music and Youtube.

King was signed under new management “The CEO” and the meaning behind it is Challenge Every Obstacle. This management is new and it’s on the rise as well, A.V.O.

With this album, A.V.O. King has stated that this was a way to reintroduce himself to others and introduce himself to people in the industry. He stated that “this album is actually me; it’s something that shows who I am, and really just a way to show how much I’ve grown and progressed since I haven’t put a project out since 2020.” This album touches a lot of points on how it can relate, whether that’s related to others or just showing what reality is. “When putting this project together,I knew where it was headed and I wanted to make sure that I can make it relatable as much as I can and you gotta really listen to it, that’s what I try to do when I make songs in general. This is my first album and I wanted to show people what real is and how I speak about certain things that the next person can’t talk about or express themselves.” “Real As It Is” should be an album that we can all relate to, turn up to, and go down as a classic album one day.
