Today, Las Vegas-born and DMV-based buzzing 16-year-old rapper KA$HDAMI blasts off with his anxiously awaited new mixtape, HYPERNOVA.
Listen to HYPERNOVA: HERE.
The project threads together eleven incisively infectious anthems. Among many standouts, the lead single “HEAD$HOT!” [feat. Trippie Redd] showcases the scope of his scorching signature style. He rips through the skittering 808s with a menacing melodic flow before multiplatinum superstar Trippie Redd orbits the beat with his own hypnotic harmony and vivid verse.
HYPERNOVA also boasts previously released bangers such as “Intermission.” Beyond piling up over a million streams and counting, HotNewHipHop highlighted, “KA$HDAMI’s gruff melodies riddled with auto-tuned inflections and energetic delivery bring quick-witted quotables,” and No Jumper pegged him as “one of the young stars emerging out of a new wave of young, boundary pushing artists making waves online.” Lyrical Lemonade attested his “sound is as unique as it gets, mixing dark, menacing sounds with his slightly more uplifting, lighthearted style,” and described the track “as captivating as ever.” Not to mention, it also includes “Public,” which has generated over 5 million streams and counting.

KA$HDAMI also recently unveiled the deluxe edition of his acclaimed mixtape, Epiphany Reloaded, and the music video for “Wake Up” [feat. SSGKOBE]. With over 64 million Global streams and 20 million video views, tracks from Epiphany continue to grow. Pitchfork observed, “The teen rapper’s dreamy yet dark mixtape leans into gruff flows and gun-toting punchlines with a wink.”
Upon arrival, Epiphany earned a Top 10 debut on Spotify, while multiple cuts lit up playlists such as Soundcloud’s New & Hot Overall and New & Hip Hop Charts. Not to mention, Cole Bennett, Internet Money, Lil Tecca, Trippie Redd, Yung Bans, and more have publicly endorsed KA$HDAMI. Pigeons & Planes hailed him as one of the “Best New Artists” for May 2021, and he lives up to this high praise on the project. Epiphany includes KA$HDAMI’s viral banger “Look N The Mirror!” which crashed the Top 20 of the Spotify Viral Chart and Top 25 on the Rolling Stone Breakthrough 25 Chart, while Pitchfork proclaimed, “Must Hear Rap Song of the Day.” It has already racked more than 23 million total streams.

KA$HDAMI not only bends, but also breaks the rules by injecting otherworldly production with hard-hitting rhymes. The 17-year-old Las Vegas-born and DMV-raised rapper, entrepreneur, and visionary tirelessly evolved to reach this point. At barely 12-years-old, he emerged as a phenomenon on Soundcloud. After grinding at lightspeed, he broke into the mainstream during 2020. “Kappin Up” lit up TikTok, cracking 100 million views and soundtracking creates from Bronny James, Tory Lanez, Shareef O’Neal, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Following the success of his mixtapes 16 and #KashDontMiss, he approached critical mass with Epiphany. Upon arrival, it clinched a Top 10 debut on Spotify, while the project tallied north of 100 million total streams buoyed by “Reparations!” and “Look N The Mirror!” Beyond co-signs courtesy of Cole Bennett, Lil Tecca, Trippie Redd, and Young Bans, Pitchfork mused “The teen rapper’s dreamy yet dark mixtape leans into gruff flows and gun-toting punchlines with a wink,” and Pigeons & Planes christened him one of the “Best New Artists” of May 2021. Now, KA$HDAMI elevates this approach to the stratosphere on his 2021 mixtape, HYPERNOVA [Republic Records], and much more music to come.
