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!
Sup OTDHipHop fam! Apologies for the delay on posting, been busy on the back end of my own music projects and building the brand. Just a heads up, we are active on Twitter and Instagram, as well as our Spotify playlist. Hit us up via social media or send us an email @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the past few years that I’ve been following Gio, this dude has always had bars and swagger. His latest single and visual “Because” showcases just that. This is definitely a banger, and something I’d be excited to see live. Gio is also spotted wearing BVGGIO, an up and coming culturally inspired fashion brand. Overall, I dig the track and visual; I never expect anything less than DOPE from Gio Martin. Shouts out Kim Cas on the visuals and Ty Jamz on production!
