KingAP’s debut album ‘2K16’, released on 24th August 2021 under GrooveNexus Records, has eight songs. Each of the songs has its essence, and all the songs are connected in a beautiful storyline. The album portrays an incomplete love story of a boy and a girl, where the boy wants to confess his feelings for the girl but is unable to do so due to some misunderstandings, and they get further apart. Each of the songs depicts different phases of unrequited love and the pain that comes with it.
The album ‘2k16’ by KingAP features three artists, Rohit Pandey, Harshita Baranwal and Neha Rawat, along with a lyricist Abhimanyu, who has co-written three songs, Ek shaam, Naseeb and Khayal along with KingAP himself. All the songs in the album are produced by Traxeon himself.
The album contains four romantic numbers Guzarish, Insane, Naseeb and Ek shaam, along with Kyu Iss Tarah, Khayal, Yaadein Teri and Laut Aao, which are sad numbers.
KingAP, aka Arpit Verma, is a 21-year-old lyricist, singer and rapper from Lucknow. Being a fan of rap music from a very young age, he got influenced by many Indian rappers like Honey Singh and thought of giving it a try himself.

In 2016, he started writing songs and made his first dummy composition with correct lyrics with the song ‘Guzarish’.
