The B-Side: Kenith

Usually when artists send us music to consider for the blog they give us some info to go along with it: their story, the song’s story, etc…. Often it can be too much, especially for our blog, where the focus is on short, postcard sized, write ups. Not Kenith though, Kenith sent us a song and only a song and while that might be foolhardy for some, was perfect for “Gifted.” Everything you need to know is in the song itself, a confident flow with just enough throwback flavor to catch the ear and give it a timelessness any true fan of hip-hop can get behind. Eschewing hook line and chorus, this is rap at its purest. Rhythm and lyricism at the highest level, and coming in just shy of two minutes it knows how to rock the party and leave the people wanting more.
