Rival showcases Kbackwood$’ own personal truth & individuality in a big way. Modern hip hop fans or those of us who think far too much will most likely find solace in these songs. 


Soundscapes built around meandering vocal melodies, with little to no clear language use, but rather, an underlying intention to connect with audiences on a deeper, emotional & spiritual level. 


The chord progression & the leading instrumental riff leave their mark unquestionably, and this, alongside of that crucial hook line – makes certain the song stays with you. 


Delicate riffs and a hopeful sense of possibility back up the poet’s sentiments & character in a colourful way. Swoop’s performance is ever-impressive, yet he doesn’t shout about it – he doesn’t need to. The performances speak for themselves.
