Another day, another talented Chicago artist. Kay Eye’s mixtape 90’s Baby dropped some time ago but at 17 tracks it proved his work ethic and capacity to make banger after banger. Just a few days ago Kay decided to show his versatility in new track 44 Barsss. Kay goes full combat mode spitting on his detest for 9-5 jobs and plotting to make this music thing a lasting career. What makes 44 a unique track is that the bars are actually slowed down, putting emphasis and focus on every line. There is even a semi chorus that pulls it all together.
Some interesting production comes from Fake Sauney that may surprise listeners. It’s nonetheless a dope approach to such a reflective track and I hope they continue to work together.
