Born in Texas but more notably raised and shaped by the UK, rapper and artist Kway delves into emotional turmoil and unapologetic realness with this ambient and impressive, deeply personal freestyle.
Backed up with a beautifully acoustic yet trap-kissed soundscape, kold hearted tells its story with relentless bars and a hypnotic repeat for a hook.
Exploring personal challenges and the subsequent changes in behaviour and perspective, kold hearted encapsulates all that its title implies. Kway’s journey has been loaded with difficulties, and these have impacted his personality and approach to life in immeasurable ways – a sadly relatable story, yet one that’s been told here in a respectably honest and revealing manner.
Though brief at a simple two minutes, the track strikes like a mainstream hit – connecting for its authenticity, melodic layers and passion alike, and also captivating with every bar that pours through. A single listen doesn’t suffice, there’s detail and intelligence in the lines, and the overall mood combined with the real-time visuals begs for you to delve in more than once.
Humanity and talent meet professionalism and the production tones of the contemporary scene. Hopefully there’s more music on the way.
