Jordan Kyreem – Whoa

As his track Speeding continues to gain traction, New York’s Jordan Kyreem pays homage to Bad Boy and it’s Black Rob classic, with this new one..

Where you would expect him to sample the classic beat, I like the idea of spinning the infamous lyrics into the hook, and using it to his narrative. It’s definitely another element to him as a rapper, as he uses the opportunity to drop some bars. The video isn’t anything special, but like the song, it helps put a face to the voice. I do think that because Speeding is still going strong, Whoa falls somewhat in it’s shadow overall, none the less this will appeal to some more than that, so it’s good that he isn’t slacking on the work rate.

Jordan Kyreem – Speeding

New York has recently been gaining some more traction (though not entirely for the right reasons), and while the negatives may overshadow the music itself, the positive is that there is an abundance of music flowing, bringing us to one of the up and comers, Jordan Kyreem. The young rapper has been experimenting through previous releases (such as Out The Gate), and it appears that he’s getting closer with this new offering, Speeding.

Produced by Dutch talent, UNRTHDX, the ambient sounds with that intense synth occasionally striking through like lightning, provides more than just a base, allowing Jordan to switch between a mellow and hype rap in his verses, plus the melodic chorus, really combines to create an overall good track, with his vocals matching (and enhancing) the feel of the production. Whilst I might be bias with the Akira-inspired artwork, this is my favourite track from him thus far, and I would encourage a project around it, especially as there is clearly a dope chemistry between Unrthdx and himself.

Jordan Kyreem – Out The Gate

New from the up and coming NY rapper

Like the title, Jordan Kyreem comes straight out the gate, with a consistent flow, over what could be described as wavy production. With New York steadily back on the rise, there are a variety of up and coming names, such as Jordan, and the likes of Dub Aura, who are really crafting that authentic, original modern-day NY sound. This is a good direction of sound, so stay locked for more from the young rapper.
