With great respect to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kidd Upstairs channels his inner demons and artistic frustrations bar after bar over a hard hitting beat. Produced by K-Notes (who also produced Kidd’s “Forget Me”) and Freeza Chin, who mix grand orchestras with scrambled robot voices over banging 808, the track shows Kidd’s lyrical dexterity, as he effortlessly transitions between flows. Half venting, half showing off – look for “Philip Seymour Hoffman” on Kidd’s highly anticipated ‘KVSHMIR II’.
