New Music: KiD X (Feat. Blaklez) – Cool As You Like

Joburg-based rapper Kid X has a genuine claim to being the best (commercially active) rapper in the country. He first reached critical consciousness through the Cashtime Life crew and winning a SAMA for his contribution to K.O.’s massive ‘CaraCara’. Since then he has been on a tear, with a steady stream of solid features and singles (one of which was named Tumi’s verse of the year). These were presumably leading up to a commercial album release, but instead we got ¾ Pace: a free surprise album dropped earlier in the year. It’s incredibly solid, and X has now dropped the visuals for ‘Cool As You Like’, its second single. The flows are as mercurial as ever (X is practically a technician when it comes to this) and the production swaggers like Jackie Chan’s drunken master, in control but leaning hard. Its, effortless music, as cool as you’d like.
