“You can hear how a vocalist imposes every moment that seemed suitable for imparting an atmosphere. Magnificent Hip-hop rhythms instantly attract attention on -used to- with a need to repeat again and again.”
“Слышно, как вокалист улучает каждый момент, который показался подходящим для придания атмосферы. Великолепная подача материала, насыщенные ритмы Hip-Hop мгновенно притягивают к себе внимание и заставляют включать -Used To- снова и снова.”
In the visual directed by AJ Spitz [G Herbo, Lil Eazzyy], KB Mike sits at an old school typewriter where he punches out one letter after another to his ex. Those letters pile up on her bed only to be discarded in a flurry of tears. Despite looking for love elsewhere, they both magnetically find one another again in a romantic reunion. The breakup-to-makeup story serves as the perfect complement to the track.
“Used To” continues to gain traction, racking up over 11 million streams to date. At the same time, he’s already received looks from HotNewHipHop, REVOLT and more.
About KB Mike:
From the Marquette Park and Gage Park sections of Chicago’s historic Southside, 20-year-old KB Mike dodged the pitfalls of violence and poverty through art. “Music is what keeps me focused and out of harm’s way. That’s really how I navigated through all of Chicago’s stuff,” the fresh-faced artist with the confident flow and melodic voice admits. After a breakthrough 2020 that included high-six-figure engagements on Soundcloud, Instagram, and Facebook, Mike is already revved up for 2021, when he will release his anticipated full-length debut.
From a young age, KB Mike endured losing loved ones to the streets and drugs. Having found popularity in high school and the community, KB Mike tried his hand at rapping in 2018. What began as acapella freestyles to others’ songs during house arrest evolved into something far greater two years later. “Deep In Love” blends soft strings and accents with an authentically contemporary understanding of young romance. That knack for relationship rap also shines on “Drunk Texting,” a song where listeners can hear Mike’s emerging singing alongside his in-the-pocket flow. With over 2 million streams combined, these songs are two of the dozen or so that introduced a talented artist in 2020. On the heels of late January’s successful video single “Revenge,” Mike vows to step forth with his debut mixtape. In the meantime, a standout versatile voice from the Windy City is taking flight.
