Fresh Colorado hip-hop from Kevin Pistol, Jahni Denver, Catch Lungs and Foodchain
We're back with another fresh batch of Colorado hip-hop, all with stimulating videos to bring the tracks to life. First, the often controversial Kevin Pistol returns with a track about his superior mike control, while Jahni Denver drops an inspiration track with help from Krizz Kaliko. Catch Lungs, meanwhile, attempts to change the game with "Nip Tuk," and Foodchain adds visuals to its MMJ anthem "Young Amsterdam." Continue on to see what's good this week.
Kevin Pistols - "I Do it Right"
Kevin Pistols hits hard with this new track. The song is anchored by simplistic percussion and subtle bells, and lyrics that change tempo at a moment's notice. Pistols raspy delivery fits nicely over the smooth beat, as he raps about how nice he is on the mike: "Ain't nothing phony about Pistol/My flow authentic/In a minute, y'all gonna know I can blow without a gimmick." Pistols delivers another quality track here, along with an interesting video with multiple scenes in one very big house.
Jahni Denver - "Promised Land"
Jahni Denver delivers a heartfelt track along with assistance from Strange Music's Krizz Kaliko, who appears on the hook, but leaves the rapping to Denver, who raps about his childhood struggles and overcoming obstacles to "make it to the promised land." With subtly affected vocals, Denver flows over a pulsating beat, layered with up-tempo, palpitating beeps and synth lines. Denver surprises by matching Kaliko's chorus with some interesting harmonized vocals for his verses.
