Yesterday, emerging L.A. emcee KR was fired from his job forÂ requesting the day off so he could appear on MTV's Rap Fix Live (along withÂ ScHoolboy Q, Vado and Vic Mensa). "Rap Niggas" is the result, recorded both out of anger and a renewed sense of determination.
The cut, soundtracked by Atlanta producer Natural Disaster, is "a taste of what's to come", that being KR's upcoming mixtape I$0Lyf3 3.Â He dropped a new visual forÂ "FYP"Â yesterday, a choice selection from i$0Lyf3 2; before that was the January singleÂ "Off The Record", which you can stream and/or downloadÂ here.Â
As mentioned, KR's preparing to set out on anÂ eight-city tour across the U.S. with rising ChicagoÂ rapper Alex Wiley, beginning in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Friday, February 28th.Â
I'm God's gift, and my wisdom's guarded
With knowledge that brought me into the game
With the pain of a thousand mamas
Who lost they kid to the graveÂ
