If there was ever to be a Lupe Fiasco of Australian hip-hop, Citizen Kay would be he. Holed up in the nation’s captial, Kay is gearing up to release his first official single, Yes!, and his maiden EP of the same name, which is expected to land this April.
Kay is no newbie to the airwaves. Previously, his track Ansah Brothers hit all the right notes with triple j, who plugged the tune through the airwaves and through their Unearthed vessel. Earning his stripes through the hip-hop game, Kay has also received kudos for his abilities in all sorts of music – a well rounded rapper.
Yes! is an ultra catchy jam, driven by the drums but given substance by the interjection of horns and a super-tight flow drenched in bass. It’s a worthy warning shot from the EP that will officially hit shelves and radio Friday, 22nd March.
In the near future, Citizen Kay will be supporting Matt & Kim on their run of Australian shows throughout May.
