King was the son of Lonnie Crawford and Gaybell King. He founded his own Say Nigh Entertainment label for his series of CD and DVD releases.
King was struck and killed by a car involved in an illegal drag race on Republic Avenue near Avenue W in the Pratt community. The incident was recorded by several videographers and at least two clips were posted to YouTube in the days following. Yardley Potter of Vernon, Florida was identified as the driver of the vehicle that struck King. He and fellow racer Brian Murphy of Elkmont (Limestone County) have been charged with manslaughter and with leaving the scene of an accident.
