Kiddblack raises the bar for the rap scene with new single “Play”


Two months after releasing a joint EP with Producer Moor Sound, the “Rapgod” Kiddblack reminds us why such a lyrical title is attributed to him.

“Play” is a sprawling pinnacle of every element that makes a Kiddblack and Joey B collaboration an unrelentingly inspired future classic.  Previously working on Joey B’s self-titled Ep “Daryl”,  the duo gave a well-balanced performance on “Family Come” and that energy runs through Kiddblack’s new single.

Produced by Nel Magnum, “Play” is fueled with a sample from Tom Brock’s 1974 hit “Have a nice Weekend baby, on a triumphant production, Joey is Calm, But in the mood to address issues via Bars, from realism to Mob Ties, he declares the emergence of the “new school” and their victorious runs, before ending his verse with a very memorable line (“the kid is black and ancient”).

The victorious overtone gives Kiddblack the opportunity to apply his unwavering flow and powerful choice of words, saying everything as it is, tackling every doubt about his loyalty to the rap game, and detailing how endowed his crew is before making a classic reference to Rev Run signing to Adidas in 2005.

Joey signing deals with Adidas that’s Rev Run shit

summing up to an equal performance from all aspects of the song.

The raps are pure novelty and the samples aren’t just aesthetically beautiful but profound in context, making the tune a classic.
