With contributors to her latest EP, like Childish Gambino (aka Donald Glover or Troy Barnes on Community, for the parents), SBTRKT, A$AP Ferg, Earl Sweatshirt and Jesse Boykins, I was ashamed that I wasn’t familiar with her work prior to The Fader’s Best of and Most Slept on in 2013 Mix.
My fellow Taurus (same birthday – hey girl!), Kilo Kish is casually sassy and sarcastic without all the extra (read: sexy, not trashy). Sans the excessively common, overly sexual references (Rihanna, Miley, Nicki) Kish is still talking men and relationships but perhaps speaking more for those of us that know exactly what we want and don’t have a problem saying it. On ‘trappin’ she says “engage me grammatically” and later “gave you all my thoughts but you wanted more.” She confidently values herself without being too serious and it’s dope.
“She says I need a man with morals and ambition, still shudder at that old tradition. Like that… but except for the fact that I get super bored.” Dear God with lyrics like this, blunt in her sweet voice AND Jesse Boykins on the track, YES times a million. I think a lot of women can relate to knowing what’s good for you and desiring otherwise. Enter, A$AP Ferg on love2k beckoning his Balenciaga mama and I’m all emoji heart eyes and praise hands.
Play all the way through. My faves are turquoise, better and love2k.
And my favorite from prior to K+, Navy.
