Philadelphia, PA-based rapper KIR drops an outstanding new EP titled Hometown Hero online now! Co-signed by Charlamagne tha God, PnB Rock, Jadakiss and more, KIR is slated to be the next big thing from the city of Philadelphia.
After releasing a handful of singles over the last year, gifted Philadelphia rapper, KIR, drops his new, 8-track EP, Hometown Hero. The project comes with the news of KIR reaching over 4 million views on his YouTube channel, certainly with the help of his latest visual, “Jiggin,” which has over 500K views.
Quietly becoming one of the city’s most accomplished new artists, Hometown Hero perfectly details KIR’s challenges to date, capturing his rugged journey to becoming a local celebrity. Calling upon producers Othello, DatBoiGetro, Chris Rich, Tyrian MTB, Tobi Aitch, and 3KMade It to drive the project sonically, KIR delivers a versatile performance effortlessly alternating from melodic singing on the catchy “Diamond in the Rough” to poignant lyricism on “Ghetto Gospel.”
From the basketball court to courtrooms, KIR has experienced more than most, and having lost so many of his peers to street life, listeners can feel the pain in his music, but should also feel motivated to pursue a better life for themselves.
