Kembe X - Poker Face

Posted 2 years ago
Producer:
The Antydote
Album:

Kembe X‘s stock has been steady rising, but you won’t catch him cracking a smile. As we learn on the latest single off his forthcoming EP with Scion A/V, the Windy City rhymesayer’s been “at it so long” that he’s developed quite the Poker Face. Here, The Antydote‘s leisurely percussion and eerie keys accompany the rapper as he shares some cool-headed reflections on his place in the game. Kembe’s bars may be blasé, but the fast-paced flows he busts out at the end of verse one are sure to elicit a reaction from listeners on our pages. Fans will be able to find this cut, the Ab-Soul-assisted As I Unfold and much more on the artist’s self-titled set, scheduled to hit the ‘net next Tuesday, August 19. Watch for this single’s official visuals to debut before month’s end.
