Featuring tracks by Harry Fraud, Cardiak, and Pete Rock, Kidd intertwines industry production with original pieces crafted by himself; Kidd handles producer duty for half of KVSHMIR, while also allowing newcomers itzSpaceMan, Levi King, Ejak and Patrick Banahan to shine with the assist.
KVSHMIR goes light on the features allowing Kidd’s mic presence and writing to speak for itself; returning to his roots of Oakland, California, Kidd recruits Mistah F.A.B., Hongry, and Gaitta, as well as Top Floor comrades X.O. and Farid Xan.
KVSHMIR drops the same day as Big Sean’s sophomore LP, and while the latter is enjoying his run at fame, the former is not far from that same hall.
