Aloha OTDHipHop fam! As always, we’re back with consistent hip hop ON THE DAILY.
I got a special Hawaii spotlight for yall today - Hilo boys Jay Kuro and Killa B-rex.
You might remember them from last year’s Creative Hustle Tour segment.
Today I’ll be reviewing YouknowKuro’s newest track “Pesos.”
First off the beat is hella vibey, a trap and R&B sound with a cool piano melody.
Props on production! I really dig YouKnowKuro’s voice and flow on this; his raps sound more confident and smooth as we’ve followed his music development. The hook is also catchy, something I can vibe to on some solo shit or with friends. Lyrically, he illustrates his daily life with his own personal and Hawaiian finesse. I like that he mentions the homestead, and other Hawaii/Big Island lifestyle mentions like that. The song is pretty positive too, talking about staying focused, working hard, and forgetting the haters. Shouts out Killa B-rex and Young Nav for their features on this track too!
Make sure yall take a listen and support YouKnowKuro and the rest of his FTH crew!
