Following a quite busy 2019, Kida Kudz is back with the same energy and perhaps more as he kicks off the new year with a banging release, ‘1am‘ featuring UK rapper, Jaykae. This is Kida Kudz’s first offering since his team up with Sons of Sonix and Teni on ‘Money‘, a song that finds the acst crooning about their desire for cash. It also features a brilliantly cinematic video that finds Kida Kudz successfully pulling off a Teni-masterminded heist. Given the frequency of Kida Kudz’s releases over the past year, there is a growing suspicion that there might be a project on the horizon. But we’d all just have to wait to find out.
This new record, ‘1am‘ samples Ghana’s V.I.P‘s 2003 classic, ‘Ahomka Wo Mu‘, which is chopped and diced to create a smooth jiggy bop which Kida Kudz has come to call home. Despite being an unlikely collaborator, Jaykae doesn’t feel out of place on the record as he effortlessly rides on the beat with a polished and unrelenting flow. Across the record, the pair just croon about living their best life in the wee hours of the morning. The accompanying video which premiered on GRM Daily tells it all, finding both acts chilling and later going on to rob a couple of chics of their jewellery.
