IYKZ (FKA Ikes) returns with his latest BZGD-produced audio contribution “KILO.” Last seen seeking guidance in the All Def Digital: The Signal presented visual for “Pray For Me,” the Hackney based recording artist looks to reach new heights with his latest effort. The new tune follows the commercial success of his singles “Clarity” and “No Commercial,” which gained notoriety from Grammy Award winning production group J.U.S.T.I.C.E League as well as BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Prophesying greatness for the seasoned emcee, the soft lullaby plays underneath screeching sirens and an onslaught of beats that together create a backdrop of mythos. And yet, IYKZ’s raps are what truly shine in the track: the lyrics inspired, and the delivery precise and intriguing. Derived from intense personal feeling, IYKZ explores his placement as an outsider, questions the impact a shift in ambition has on identity, and anticipates a rich musical legacy that — if “Kilo” is an indication — will assuredly come to pass.
