Wow Where do I start?.. Well for my likes, Motorcycles, Bowling (Yeah, I roll 300's) and Pool are my sports. I am a father of 2 girls, who are completely the reason why I breathe.. My girls have inspired me to be the best in life at all things, not from the moment they were born, but from the moment they were conceived. Being a dad is the quintessential favorite part of my life. I also have a fascination with rescue and law enforcement. I was hired as a full-time fire rescuer the same week I was hired as an on call (not even part-time) radio personality. It’s obvious that I chose radio, and it indeed has been good to me, more so than I am to it. Radio broadcasting has always been my passion and was ultimately birthed into me by my late father who worked in radio for almost 50 years. So I guess you can say I got it honestly. I can truly say that I am blessed beyond measure to have such a great career, which allows me to experience so much the average person will probably never do or see. I am truly grateful to God for this dream now reality lifestyle that I am blessed to have...To Him be The Glory...The Father, Teacher & Mentor

At eight years old Kiraly Payne told his parents what he wanted for Christmas -- music production software. Music what? Up to that point the only software he ever cared about were games for his Play Station and XBOX. When asked why, Kiraly confidently declared: “I want to make music. I have so many songs in my head. I just need to get them out.”
Eventually he got his wish and it quickly became clear for all to see that making music was no game to Kiraly. He would park in his bedroom for hours, diligently putting together beats and pinning lyrics on notepads.
Fast forward a few years and he was ready to showcase his music. Kiraly entered the 2011 Dwayne Wade Talent show in Chicago. Of the 800 contestants who entered he was one of the 13 chosen for the competition. Kiraly performed at the Chicago Theater in front of an audience of about 2000 guests. Performing on stage was natural for him; and over the next three years he would go on to win various rap contests and perform at multiple clubs throughout the Chicago area.
His first album, Blue City, is a collection of slick, lyrically-rich tracks that he calls “real hip-hop.” New sounds and samples from unlikely sources reflect his drive to be original. The album’s title Blue City pays homage to recent tragedies in Chicago. His single “I’m so sick – Part 2” is a fun up-tempo grove that’s sure to get clubs pumped. The video for this video was dropped the evening of September 7th on YouTube. It’s a must see. Kiraly wants people of all ages to like his music while staying true to his hip-hop roots.
He is a young man with a plan. Not only is he seeking his own spot on the hip-hop stage, but he also plans to open doors for his crew, Royal Music, a talented collection of young producers from the Chicago area. Says Kiraly: “When I rise my crew rises with me.” Yes, he’s already thinking about his next move.
Lock in on Kiraly.
