Hip-hop Artist Kan Boy has made good use of the year 2020 by sticking to the phrase, ‘quality over quantity.’ Even though he has released two singles this year, he has made a larger than life impact while showing the world what he is capable of.
Delving into his artistic talents, Kan Boy allowed his listeners into the creative sector of his abilities with, “Real Life,” released in June, and “Good Day,” being released in September.
Tapping into, “Real Life,” Kan Boy has listeners mesmerized with how he applies his own opulent flair to the slick, modern wave of Hip-hop that we know and adores.
Weighty bass components flaunt upon a hard-hitting ambiance as Kan Boy lyrically displays expressions on how the things in life that occur, can’t be undone. Laying down the vivid essence of, ‘actions come with consequences,’ Kan Boy drives home hard-hitting facts all while radiating self-assured confidence.
His most recent single, “Good Day,” shines a bright light on what it would take for the world to have a good day amidst the chaos that surrounds us. A slower tempo makes every pulsation through the speaker hit that much harder as we float upon the ease of the cadences that Kan Boy approaches. His laid back ambiance creates an otherworldly vibration that has us moving freely through the bobs and weaves of his lyrical dexterity.
As Kan Boy takes the time to shares pieces of himself through vivid imagery, he does have us not so patiently waiting for his highly anticipated, self-created mixtape, “Y.O.T.R.” Kan Boy made the conscious decision to switch the release date from 2020 to 2021, due to workspace complications that himself and his team couldn’t control, but rest assured, Kan Boy and his team will be making it happen through continuous hard work and dedication.
We even received word that we won’t have to wait much longer for new hits from Kan Boy, 2021 will be rather generous with the release of his single, “Faceda Music,” starting our year off right.
It’s always a pleasure when we get to chat with you, Kan Boy, congratulations on a successful 2020. This year has been chaotic for a lot of artists trying to find their own path. What have you noticed about your growth from the start of this year to this present moment?
2020 was the year I put out music on all streaming platforms, three years after I started making music, I didn’t believe in making fans pay, they could listen for free on the Cloud, once the pandemic hit I had to adjust, I needed more ears.
What has been the biggest challenge that you’ve had to overcome as an artist this year?
2020 - 2021 will be the year to make or break upcoming artists. Platforms like SoundCloud made accommodations for artists in this crucial time.
Releasing two singles this year, do you happen to have one that resonates with you more than the other?
Every time I drop I love it no more than the next, but if we comparing the two from this year Good Day my go to.. no Kizzy.
Could you please share a glimpse of what moments inspired the creation of both, “Real Life,” and “Good Day?"
I was feeling a bit uneasy when they had not let Spike Lee in the building, then I made Real Life. I made Good Day way back before I made Real Life, I wanted them to free Melly so I made Good Day.
You’re currently working hard on a self-created mixtape titled, “Y.O.T.R.” Could you take us into what themes and messages we can expect from this project?
Growing up, I was always around hustlers, they were getting to it by any means, but these people had morals and values, it would always be family first, loyalty, and stand on what you say. Who do you look up to in the realm of music? How does their music speak into your creations?
The only time I look up to somebody when it comes to music is whenever I feel like I have to learn something, I like to use them as a template.
What words of wisdom that got you through 2020, would you like to leave with your listeners?
Never put all of your eggs in one basket.
