KID GLORY DROPS NEW SONG “THEY AIN’T LIKE ME THO”

THE FIRST TIME I GOOGLED HIP-HOP ARTIST KID GLORY (THEN KNOWN AS “GLORY”), IT WAS OF COURSE A FRUSTRATING AND LONG ROAD INTO GOOGLE’S BRAIN UNTIL I FOUND HIM ON TWITTER. I HAD HEARD HIM ON A YOUTUBE VIDEO MONTHS EARLIER, BUT LOST THE LINK & MOST OF THE VIDEO INFORMATION.

IT WAS ONE OF THOSE LIFE-OR-DEATH MUSIC SITUATIONS, YOU KNOW THE ONES? WHERE AN ARTIST HAS PEAKED YOUR OBSESSION, AND YOU BECOME AN ONLINE STALKER (COMMONLY KNOWN AS A TROLL). IN THE CASE OF KID GLORY, HIS FLOW WAS SO RICH, WITH THAT NEW YORK SWAGGER THAT IS NOT AT ALL LIKE, SAY, THAT ATLANTA SWAG – WHICH IS ACTUALLY NOT A JOKE, YOU HAVE TO TELL BOSTON HIP-HOP ELITISTS.

KID GLORY HAS BEEN TRICKLING OUT SONGS A LITTLE AT A TIME IN MY 2 YEAR OF FANHOOD. FINALLY THIS YEAR HE RELEASED HIS FULL-LENGTH UPTOWN STATE OF MIND.

“T.A.L.M.T.  (THEY AIN’T LIKE ME THO)” DROPPED OVER THE SUMMER, AND IS SEPARATE FROM UPTOWN BUT IS CLASSIC & STYLISH KID GLORY MUSIC NONETHELESS.

THE HOLY KARON PLAYLIST ON SOUNDCLOUD

IF YOU’RE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE HOLY KARON, HERE IS A STARTING POINT. THERE ARE 16 TRACKS, ALL GRIMY & SOCIALLY-RELEVANT, EACH AN EXPRESSION OF THE HOLY KARON’S VIEW OF THE WORLD. YOU WON’T FIND BITCHES AND HOES, YOU WON’T FIND ANYTHING SUPERFICIAL HERE.

I WON’T BE TEDIOUS BY SAYING ANYTHING FURTHER ABOUT THE HOLY KARON OR HIS MUSIC. HOPEFULLY, THE HOLY KARON HAS FOUND A NEW FAN IN YOU.

TWOINEY LO TAKEOVER.

TWOINEY LO SPITS LIKE HE’S UNTOUCHABLE. HIS RHYME SCHEMES NEARLY ARE.

“HOT N_a” IS A CELEBRATION OF THE STRUGGLE IN THE HOOD. AND IT’S NOT JUST A CASH STRUGGLE, IT’S ABOUT VALIDATION FROM YOUR PEERS AND MAINTAINING A SENSE OF SELF-WORTH.

AND YES, SUCCESS TAKES MANY FORMS BUT THE RECOGNITION FROM THE PEOPLE YOU’VE SEEN ALONG THE WAY IS NEVER BAD FOR THE SOUL
