Keyboard Kid 'The Mind Is So Complex When Your Based'
After finding out that the based god Lil B's producer was based here in Seattle, I had to find out who he was. Enter Keyboard Kid. The 25 year old has made quite a name for himself already. Besides making hits for Lil B, Kid has been on his grind dropping mixtape after mixtape. My favorite so far has to be the aptly named, Video Games & Blunts. A trip into the new experimental hip hop sound that has been floating around, i.e. Clams Casino, Zomby, etc. Keyboard Kids beats represent a coup d'état of the old guard of hip hop. Fuzzy / Unmixed / Trap / Future Juke / Codine Influenced tracks. This new tape, curated for URB Magazine which features Kid blending 30 min of original material into a 'based' rap instrumental affair.
DL my favorite cut of the moment. Appearing on Video Games & Blunts. Digital Trap Music. 4 real. Slapper Approved. Based. Alien Technology (Mediafire Link)
