Having already proven himself throughout the UK hip-hop scene these last few years, emerging 23-year-old rapper KJ is now looking to bring his sound to a wider audience as he returns with his latest offering Money Hungry. Produced by Beatboss and featuring additional vocals from Russ, this hard and heavy banger is making all kinds of noise right now.
So with his profile currently exploding, we sat down with the MC to find out more about how his latest track cam about and what he has in sort for us in the months ahead.
You recently released your new single Money Hungry. Can you tell us how that track came about? What was the idea behind it?
The story behind Money Hungry is just to bill it and get money motivated. The track was created over a year ago and me and Beatboss cooked it within about 10-15 minutes and had a repetitive concept from the start.
The song also features fellow rapper Russ. How did you two end up working together?
We got Russ on the feature because we thought it would be a dope sound to mix together with my own.
What was it like to work with another artist on a track like this? Did you come up with your verses separately or were you working together throughout?
I made the link through my link and we began the work after a little while
What plans have you got coming up for the rest of the year? Any big releases or shows we need to look out for?
Show on the 30th opening for Russ @ Islington O2, and there is a mixtape dropping this year.
And finally, what has been the most exciting moment for you since you started in the music scene?
Getting work with rappers I grew up listening to.
