Profile:
Devin Patrick (King Killumbia) is a recording artist & celebrity graphic designer from Columbia, South Carolina. He is signed to Def Jam recording artist Lil Ru. He is the founder and trademark owner of "Killumbia". Patrick is the first white rap artist to ever be signed from South Carolina. He is more notable known for his work with Lil Ru, Project Pat, Lil Wyte, La Chat, along with Pastor Troy and his anthematic songs with major lineups.
Devin Patrick gained News headlines and media attention in 2005 when he was arrested on a felony charge for "threatening the life of a police officer" in his song Psycho Killahs (feat. Chad L.). It was later dropped when the news stations aired the case and the Solicitor dropped the charges. According to Devin, he wrote the song after the alledged officer made prejudice remarks toward him to a close friend. He removed the song from his website after being arrested but later released an edited version
omitting the officers name.
Around 2006 he took a break from recording music to pursue learning beat production and audio engineering. While in college he began working at the Jam Room recording studio. While there he was introduced to Darren "D-Luv" Martin (now Sheen Magazine owner), who signed Patrick to his R&B label Love Town Productions as a producer. There Devin produced two notable radio hit singles (Crazy & 2 Fly) for singer Debbi and a few other tracks.
After several creative differences he left Love Town Productions in 2007. He released MySpace singles I Got It (feat. JTL) and Bounce Bounce (feat. MET G, Crown ROYal, & Chad L.), that gained huge internet popularity in his region. Shortly after he was sought out by Head Hunter Records co-owner DJ 9 Mill, who had just secured South Carolina rap giant Lil Ru a deal with Capitol Records. They then began recording the project at the Jam Room, while Devin Patrick sat in and helped on sessions as they recorded hit songs Don't I Look Good and I'm Spinnin' It. After several meetings with the Head Hunter they were unable to secure a deal for Patrick.
Never the less he stayed in touch with DJ 9 Mill building the relationship as Lil Ru dropped worldwide mega club hit The Nasty Song, securing Ru a deal with Def Jam Recordings in 2009. Thus launching Head Hunter Records to the height of its career with Gorilla Zoe & Busta Rhymes jumping on board with remixs of The Nasty Song followed by Yea dat's Money (feat. Rick Ross). In 2011 Devin finally got the break he long waited for, he finally
worked a mutual deal with Head Hunter Records and was signed. Patrick returned to the rap industry that year working on his unreleased album The Addiction. He released a few singles off the album. Including strip club hit Make It Rain (feat. Dusty Roadz & J-KIDD), Goin Dumb (feat. Mr. Flip), and I Got You. But after several set backs and Lil Ru leaving Head Hunter, Devin too also parted ways at the beginning of 2012.
During the next few years he stepped back from music, having his first child and reinventing his
image as an artist. In 2014 Devin Patrick signed to Lil Ru's label Presidential Music after the two reunited at the South Carolina Music Awards. He released his debut album "Problems" in early 2015. Which featured award nominated hit singles Killumbia (feat. Various Artists) and Spazzmatic (feat. Bandit). Lil Ru and Natalac where the only notable guest features on the album along with production from BTP (Lil Wayne, B.o.B. & Dorrough). To date Problems earned 7 regional award nominations.
After the success of Killumbia many SC artists began to try to use the name. Thus having him trademark and copyright the word. He later changed his name on his social media accounts from Devin Patrick to King Killumbia, implying he was the creator and king of the Killumbia word.
In 2016 He released follow up album "Welcome to Killumbia". Which is a short 10 track album with 5 bonus Remixed tracks from Problems. The album featuring singles Money Up (feat. Lil Ru & Pastor Troy), Flossin' also featuring Lil Ru & I'll Fuck Ya Bitch (feat. Carolina Ace & Jay-Oh). The album was nominated several times and pulled the SC Underground Music Awards Best Song Collaboration of the Year award for Money Up (feat. Lil Ru & Pastor Troy).
Devin Patrick is currently working on his third album with Presidential entitled "King Killumbia" follow up album. In an interview he confirmed to have guest appearances from Pastor Troy, Lil Ru, Project Pat, Murphy Lee, Lil Wyte, La Chat, Bone Crusher, Bubba SparxxX, Ben G and Natalac.
