King Moore Addresses Gun Violence While Being The Youngest Rapper in Hip-Hop History to Be Invited to the White House

Gun violence in America is reaching unprecedented levels, particularly affecting our schools and communities. As part of the Biden Administration’s vigorous campaign to combat this crisis, initiatives are being introduced to curb gun-related crimes, especially those that put students at risk. Amid these efforts, an unexpected voice has risen to prominence: 8-year-old rap sensation King Moore.

King Moore, whose latest hit “ABC” has garnered nearly three million views in under 45 days, felt a personal call to action after hearing President Biden’s impassioned speech on gun violence. Driven by a desire to make a tangible impact, King quickly hit the recording studio, producing his new single, “Safe At School.” This song aims to raise awareness about the importance of safety in educational settings, resonating deeply with his young audience and beyond.

Behind the scenes, King’s manager Tony Mercedes, renowned for his work with chart-topping artists like Ed Sheeran and TLC, recognized the potential of “Safe At School” to contribute meaningfully to the national dialogue on gun violence. Tony promptly sent the track to Asha Castleberry, the founder of Celebrities Against Gun Violence, who shared it with key political contacts. The result was a historic invitation for King Moore to the White House, making him the youngest rapper in hip-hop history to receive such an honor.

During his visit, King represented Generation Alpha’s perspective on gun violence, participating in a White House committee discussion. When asked about his experience, King eloquently stated, “Although my generation only makes up fifty percent of the population, we also make up one hundred percent of the future. It’s hard to concentrate on school stuff when you’re worried about someone bringing a gun to school. At the end of the day, I just wanted to feel safe at school.”

King Moore’s involvement highlights a broader set of goals aimed at addressing gun violence, which includes supporting bipartisan legislation for universal background checks, promoting safety measures for parents who are gun owners, and establishing mental health programs for survivors of gun violence. These initiatives are essential steps toward creating a safer environment for all students.

King’s message resonates with both his peers and adults: “As a kid from the Alpha Generation, knowing what gun safety is will help keep us safe. By knowing what to do if we see a gun and talking about safety with our parents, family members, and friends, we can help prevent gun violence in school. Staying safe is everyone’s responsibility. Together we can make our neighborhoods, schools, and parks safer for everyone.”

His words are a powerful reminder that even the youngest voices can advocate for change and inspire a collective effort to tackle critical issues. King Moore’s involvement in this vital cause underscores the importance of engaging all generations in the fight against gun violence. His courage and commitment provide a beacon of hope, demonstrating that change is possible when we all work together.

In King’s own words, “My name is King Moore and I approve this message!”
