Mass Appeal is proud to premiere the final single off Chicago rapper theHOLYkit‘s forthcoming album, Lownt God Rising, just days away from its release.
The song— unabashedly an ode to one of the NBA’s greatest players, and Chicago Bulls three-time national champ Steve Kerr— is a wavey, murk-filled take on hip hop. Giving a shout out to Two Short on the song’s opening verse, you can’t help but start to compare the young MC’s high-pitched, yet cool and collected swagger to the West Coast’s rap pioneer. Not to mention the Chicago Bulls announcer samples and artwork are a homerun.
Lownt God Rising’s sports-themed singles and ethereal, spaced-out beats care of production duo Supreme Cuts are a whole new look for Chicago’s burgeoning hip hop scene. If you’ve been looking for fresh talent outside the status quo, do yourself a big one and get ahead of the game by putting Kit’s music to memory now, as the holy one is on the rise.
Lownt God Rising drops Tuesday, June 10.
