Born in New York City and raised in Jersey, King Noire is pure gold. His talents go way beyond porn. We interviewed him a year ago and this is exclusive.
How did you get into porn?
Initially through a friend of mine who was stripping and some people wanted her to be in a magazine. She wanted to work with someone she was familiar with and knew I had what it takes. I got into the business because I wanted to change the dynamics of how people of color are presented and show different fetishes kinks sexual ideas and lifestyles in a way that is beautifuly passionate and sexy as fuck.
How far do you intend to go?
I intend to make a name for myself in this industry and beyond. I co-own Royal Fetish Films & Jet Setting Jasmine™ with Jet Setting Jasmine so continuing to grow the brand, direct, produce and push films that show people of color, women and LGBTQ people in three dimensional sexy and passionate roles.
Do you have a role model?
I have a few people who I look at as trailblazers, talented performers and smart business people that I learn from. Heather Hunter, Sara Jay, Angelina Castro, Kendra Lust and Lance Hart have all directly helped me in this business and all are great people too.
What else do you do other than porn?
I co-own a Body Altitudes Health & Fitness studio in Palm Harbor, Florida and I do HipHop music. I mean, music is my first love. I have been making music since I was a kid. HipHop has always been my main driving force in life. Rhyming is the connection to all moments for me, when things are bad I write as therapy and when they are good I make music to celebrate. You guys can check my work at HasanSalaam.com. New music is on the way!
Who have you worked with in the music industry?
I have had the honor of sharing stages with Outkast, Nas, Pharrell, Schoolboy Q, Earl Sweatshirt, Wu-Tang Clan, Talib Kweli and Joey Bada$$. I’ve recorded with Immortal Technique, Poison Pen, Rugged N Raw, The Reavers & Majesty(RIP) of Legendary Cyphers.
Do you see a connection between your two careers?
Yes! I think it all connects because sex is rhythm and poetry to me. I use music I create or people I work with to go in our Royal Fetish Film scenes. I also do love kink shows and flogging while I perform at music venues. It’s all me being me, unapologetically and artistically.
How do you see the black men portrayed in the industry?
You know, we have a strong presence in the industry because we are fetishized by this same industry. I would like to see more black men not only being viewed as a prop or a fetish but actually having control of the images that are put out about us whether it is from producing behind the scenes or just the performers having a stronger influence on what actually winds up on film.
What do you say about interracial scenes produced these days?
IR is one of the highest selling genres of porn but black men make less in their white counterparts in some instances and white women charge more to be with black men. The stereotypes and the racism have to end. There is no IR without us and we have to better use our power and influence.
There is this alpha male thing about you that drives us crazy. What is that in your opinion?
I am just being myself. I think dominance is natural for me, I have a vision and I love to please. Sexually what you see on screen is that where I am in my real life.I mean, my scenes range the scenes when I’m more sensual scenes world more driven by Lust but I’m not a submissive that dominance is who I am but it ranges in many different ways. Outside of the bedroom I’m laid back. I like to work on my music, work out and run my businesses.
Why ‘King Noire’?
Only a King can truly treat a woman like a Queen.
What’s your take on crossover porn?
I have done some solo scenes for a few sites which were all great! Besides that I believe in staying true to what I do in actual life that’s why my fans love with DC because it’s honest truthful passionate sex it’s not just there for the camera. I don’t see myself crossing over.
What’s your favorite type of porn?
When there is real passion between the performers no matter the genre that’s what I like.
How do you keep yourself in shape?
I do my best to eat clean and put the best things into my body to get the best results from it. I love to stay active and exercise in as many ways as possible.
What is a perfect “behind the scenes” atmosphere for you?
To me it’s all about being creative and being comfortable. This is art and it’s a business so a good working environment that is conducive to staying focused but not to uptight. Some good music, conversation and lots of water!
Describe your cock and tell us know how you feel about having a massive one
I’m thick. I love being able to please my partners and love that people enjoy watching me fuck and watching me stroke it.
What would you like to do in the bizz that you haven’t done yet?
I would like a mold of me made and on sale. I have fans who ask me for one all of the time. I want to push the limits of kink and sex more and more.
