Detroit’s Kino collabs with Chicago producer jxnoir and we get a project that lives up to the cover art. It’s dark and gives us a look into this upcoming artist’s whole energy. It’s dark at some points, as Kino deals with his upbringing and his battle to distinguish himself from the myriad of Internet-based rappers and SoundCloud energy. “In My Feelings Pt. 2” is one of the highlights of the project. It finds Kino delving into his whole MO for rapping and contemplating whether or not he’s doing it for just himself or to inflict change upon folks. That’s a battle every rapper has, regardless of their status. It’s interesting–and a bit sad, to be honest–to find an artist so young to the game but already so jaded to the foolishness. But, it’s a dope track, so check it out and support dope music in all its forms.
