Everyone loves getting to know the person behind the microphone beyond the lyrics they write. That is why I love it whenever artists open up about funny stories, favorite memories, or items they can’t live without.
Marcus King has been very active on TikTok these last few days. With starting to tease new music, he is also giving fans a peek into his life and what items he can’t live without. On a new series called King’s Things, Marcus is letting fans have a glimpse at some items he has to have.
In the first “episode,” he tells fans about his candle subscription, which he can’t figure out how to cancel, and his love for trucker hats. He and his bride sport the best collection of caps, and she makes her own, taking the giant feathered crest that Marcus sports on his cowboy hats on truckers for her Little Bird Trucking designs.

While this episode is great, the second episode surpasses the first.
During the second episode, King tells fans about probably the most essential items you can have on the road. Liquid death, and joints. As he describes two brands that he likes to keep on hand for some high times, he also lets fans know that Liquid Death is one of his favorite water companies, and he is a true pioneer of the giant water bottle with his giant orange Yeti. Sorry, Stanley Brands fans, Marcus King will not be seen sporting a 40 oz tumbler.
As he describes his next set of essentials, he drops a line that would make a great album title.
“I like to be high and hydrated, baby.”
Coming 2024 from Marcus King, High & Hydrated. It has a nice ring to it…
But for real, what more could you want on the road? Add a few snacks in there, and these essentials are something that musicians could live off of for weeks.
