Keeping it 1K isn’t easy for some, but rapper 1K1Thousand, born Tray Camphor, vows to always keep it that way. Born in Baltimore, Maryland but raised on the Eastside of Atlanta, Georgia, 1K has dedicated his life to creating music that is real, relatable, and unapologetic. 1K’s stage name stems from his honest and genuine demeanor. Good or bad, 1K is all about keeping it one thousand.
With a long love for music, 1K started making music in a group along with his two brothers. As time progressed, 1K knew his music had a real meaning behind it and was meant for fans to hear worldwide. “When I first started, I knew I had something to say,” as 1K explains his journey in the music game. Since his introduction to the industry, 1K is now signed to Ordinary Genius, a production company based in Atlanta, Georgia.
With collaborations and features by the likes of artists such as Lil Baby, Tay 600, and Guap Tarantino to name a few, 1K undoubtedly continues to strengthen his fan base and step outside of the box to become an undeniable force to be reckoned with. With his first extended play, A Thousand Times, releasing Winter 2018 and performances in Georgia like A3C and major night clubs, 1K’s supporters are excited and anticipating more from him. “The response that I get on the Fake Love visual and single is something I’m proud of, especially with my fan base growing more; it’s been way more positive feedback than negative.”
One thing for sure, it’s apparent that the East Atlanta native 1K is here to stay.
