FTL (“From the Land”) Jaii releases self-made success story on his witty rap anthem “Kim K” featuring fellow Cleveland-native and rap powerhouse Ezri. Produced by Loko La’Flare, “Kim K” is chalk full of silky, luxurious piano beats and melodic percussion. FTL Jaii rises above the track as an empowered rap force to be reckoned with at the young age of only sixteen.
Directed by Joni Spielberg, the music video for “Kim K ” follows FTL Jaii and Ezri as they deliver an explosive performance in dark alleyways and graffiti-stroked stairwells. It’s a hard-hitting single that discusses the recognition of greatness in oneself. FTL Jaii writes, “They keep on sayin’ I’m chosen/ I tell them I know it.” The hook of the song is a pop culture reference to Kanye and Kim as FTL Jaii says, “Like Ye bro can’t go without his K like Kim.” “Kim K” is a modern, prolific, celebration of the self as FTL Jaii and Ezri emerge with a power-punching new rap single.
