21-year-old artist Km Kash of Spring Valley is certainly here to change the game in a major way bringing back a real battle rap feel to the New York Hip-Hop scene. While only in the game for the past 2 years he’s made sure to make a name for himself. Turning heads with his gritty sound and lyrical precision paired with his unique flare and sense of versatility. It is true that KM Kash can easily be overlooked in pursuit of the ‘livest’ track. However, Kash makes sure to stay heard incorporating and real underground feel to his visuals and tracks.
This style was certainly on display in his 2016 track 17 Homicides which has reached over 1k plays on YouTube and over 6k on sound cloud. With the success of this track, Kash was able to really set his career to new heights working alongside artists such as Quan Rite and Grizz Ru, and producers like Tyluminosity and CashmoneyAp. Who each helped him to release his first full-length project entitled “Play 2”. The project released last may which included a few highly successful tracks such as, ‘Play Your Position and the Intro pt 2.
With that success, Kash decided it would be the best time to release visuals for the track “Play your position”.
The video shot in a black and white scale plays into Kash’s kind of no-frills approach to music where he gives listeners exactly what they came for, “Real Rap”. Where he’s less focused on the money flashy cars and woman but rather about his flow and intense wordplay, all while maintaining a smooth visual presence and staying true to his sound. It’s safe to say that 2016 was certainly Kash’s year dropped hit after hit Including his 56 nights freestyle entitled “Mob Nights”,which again established him amongst the music industry’s most serious contenders.
After the Mob Nights, Km Kash decided to dropped another freestyle entitled Position Of Power, which gives off his infamous gritty classic NY sound, and Kash has already reached over a 1/2 million views via youtube, he maintains his humble persona and sticks to the music. Especially as he prepares to drop his next Ep entitled “In Kash We Trust.”
Based on the direction Kash has gone so far it’s quite clear that on this Ep he will be sure to never lose sight of his true passion for the craft, channeling the trails of his life and translating them to his lyrics with that being said it’s safe to say that Km Kash has earned a well-deserved spot amongst the hip-hop industry’s top upcoming freshmen. There’s no telling where he’s going from here. Though lucky for us we were able to get the inside scoop on his newest track “I got bands” where Kash tries out a sound a lot different from his usual grittier tones toying with autotune and more upbeat tones.
