Emerging rapper Cee Kay releases his new single and video “Cent” today via Hikari-Ultra/Republic Records. We loved every second of this track, as we found ourselves standing up and dancing after listening. It reminded us of many DC rappers tracks, such as IDK, or Big Flock with the rhythmic flow, and a hard hitting beat. In the accompanying visual, he spits outside of a broken down old Arkansas haunt alongside his friends.
Earlier this year, Cee Kay accelerated his ascent to hip-hop’s heavyweight class with one buzzing banger after another, with his most recent intoxicating song “Drugs.” Earning critical nods, Imprint predicted he’s “geared to become a force in rap, maintaining a credo of remaining true to himself and the code of the streets.” Meanwhile, Hip-Hop Vibe crowned him, “Next To Blow Out Of The South.” The rapper put himself on the map with 2019’s Blood On My Hands. Led by “Pressure” feat. YoungBoy Never Broke Again, it has racked up nearly 10 million total streams and received praise from XXL, HipHopDX and more.
Check out the video for “Cent” below.
Steve Benjamins, electronic singer-songwriter, just released a new song called “Symmetry.” In the press surrounding the new single, Benjamins has talked a lot about the concept of this song: “partnership without possession.” Alchemical Records got the pleasure of speaking to Benjamins this week, and we discussed why this issue is so important.
