Kaye Styles - Ghetto Kid

Posted 8 years ago
Kaye Styles
First Born

Having split his time on earth between Ghana and Belgium, it might seem strange to think that Kaye Styles really isn’t much different from any MC who grew up stateside. Listening to icons like Pac, Biggie, and Wu-Tang as a Ghetto Kid, Kaye became determined to make it as a rapper and one day experience the career milestones of his heroes.  Now, after plenty of hard work, both recording and pushing DJs to play his records (it’s a lot harder in Europe), Kaye’s time may finally have come.  The newest single off his album boasts a myriad of thoughtful lyrics and a soulful sampled beat.  Perfect for inspiration or just as background music, Ghetto Kid can be found on the forthcoming First Born, expected to hit stores and online retailers this June.
