A few weeks ago, a high school kid named $eth Balai hit me up on Twitter, and was interested in some collab work and I told him I could get him on my blog as well. My honest first impression was that he was probably just a youngin’ frontin’ like a serious rapper, but I stand corrected y'all. Check out this week’s “Track Tuesday” segment featuring onb$eth Balai’s latest track - “Birthday” (Prod. By Lowkey).
“Birthday” is a recent single that $eth Balai got inspired to write in the spirit of celebration and of course his own birthday. I personally describe the song’s vibe as Eazy-E’s “My 64” meets Trey Songz..and honestly I mean all of that in a good way. The best is dope, lyrics are chill and easy to follow, and it has steez. $eth Balai is an an up and coming underground Hip Hop Artist/Rapper and Castle High School junior (℅ 2018) from Kaneohe, HI.
With other artistically prolific Kaneohe role models like Koins, I would say that $eth will be an artist to watch in the coming years as he continues to develop his sound. “Pretty much after high school graduation, I plan to move in with some friends in LA and start building my career from there. I want to tour and I want to make it big. This is plan A,” said $eth. Check out $eth Balai’s “Birthday” track, and hear more of his music via Soundcloud.
