Rhyming with soaring melody and a palpable sense of urgency, Kenyan riser KayCyy lights a fire under every track he unloads. Exuding confidence and power as he drops his first effort of 2023, KayCyy shares “MOTOWN”, his fierce new video single with fellow 2022 Freshman Baby Tron. Shot in Detroit, the video directed by 12 mile Kyle/12mile Production alternates between shots of staple landmarks like the Roxy & Hitsville U.S.A. and the two emcees hanging with their crew.
Over an invigorating instrumental that resonates with the feeling of indelible emotion, the two emcees trade bars across the co-produced by Wondagurl (Travis Scott, Drake, Rihanna, Jay-Z), and frequent collaborator MikeWavvs track. “MOTOWN” comes following an explosive year for the Bu-Vision signee. Releasing several projects including ‘Who Else Would It Be’, ‘Get Used To It’; (over 5 million streams worldwide), and his Gesaffelstein collaboration ‘TW20 50’, which features “THE SUN” with over 6 million streams to-date worldwide. In addition, KayCyy has released several visuals including “Hold You Up” alongside Annahstasia, “Breaking Point”, “I Love Myself”, and “HOWWW”.
KayCyy quickly built a strong reputation for quality and colorful imagination. Making a name for himself as one of hip-hop’s hottest up-and-comers, he earned a spot on the XXL Freshman 2022 list and won his first Billboard Music Award & Grammy Award for his contributions on Ye’s Donda album. KayCyy also hit the stage for his Rolling Loud Toronto, Miami and Lollapalooza perform
Focused firmly on the future and with some of the best producers in the game in his corner, there’s no stopping KayCyy’s rise to the top of the rap game. Stay tuned for much more.
