Only 21 years old, Kevin Creft, also known as Creft-Lo is an up and coming hip-hop artist from the East end of Toronto, Canada. Here to change the rap game, Creft knows he has a talent and is unapologetically himself. Equipped with mesmerizing bars he’s got big things coming, and he knows it!
Creft-Lo’s brand new track “Reality” is a track all about making his hopes and dreams REAL. Creft-Lo have the ambition and drive to make it big. He hopes to make it out of Toronto and to provide a bigger house for his family. My favorite lyric has to be “Girls think I’m ugly, now they wanna call me”! It’s a quirky line but it holds a powerful weight of gaining the wrong attention through his success. “Reality” takes the listener into the future to showcase what can and will be. Creft-Lo got there by working hard and proving he’s the best through his prolific rhymes and independent grind. “Reality’” is definitive proof that Kevin Creft has earned his stripes and confidence.
