Kingmakers of Oakland (KOO) is a dynamic hip-hop trio hailing from Oakland, CA. Comprising Alonzo Henderson (Zo1), Amari Chatmon (AMARI), and Kahli (42k-lil), KOO Krew is not just a musical force but also an award-winning nonprofit dedicated to improving the educational and life outcomes of Black Boys. The group’s distinctive approach to hip-hop sets them apart, focusing on uplifting themes such as family, self-pride, healing, and community. Their latest single and video, ‘Glisten,’ is a testament to their commitment to their roots and the city they proudly call home.

“Glisten” stands as the lead single from KOO Krew’s upcoming album, ‘Royalty.’ The track, accompanied by a visually stunning animated video, pays homage to the vibrant city of Oakland. The song, set against boom bap style beats, deviates from the standard mainstream hip-hop narrative, choosing to explore themes of family, self-pride, and community pride. Produced by local Oakland artist DREW BANGA, ‘Royalty’ is a 14-track journey of examination and reflection, showcasing KOO Krew’s growth and depth as artists.
