KJ Releases ‘COVID20’ Mixtape To Deliver Positive Vibes
After beginning his career at sixteen, KJ has been producing addictive beats that have meant he is silently becoming the best in the game.
Written by KJ and produced by Beatboss and Ceefigz, KJ’s latest mixtape “COVID20” is about “giving people something more” KJ explains, “the sound is a major vibe that me and the team created together, with mostly a mix of trap and rap, combined with dope organic instruments.”
He also goes on to say “I hope it will encourage you to be positive in all aspects. This is a major chance for people to get a glimpse of what I do, and I hope people take a positive message back from this.”
One of his biggest inspirations in music has been Mac Miller, who inspired the young creative to write clever lyrics in his bedroom and practise grime beats that would go on to impress legendary producers such as Remy K, of the Gorillaz and many more.
KJ shows an intelligent complexity within the tracks, from songs such as “Bag Luck”, to “Elevated” featuring Joe Black, and “Powers” featuring Chirs Budden, with multiple layers exhibiting something very different coming from the UK rap scene. Describing the mixtape as “short, sweet and smart” – KJ wants to deliver a positive message for his fans, with the young rapper hooking listeners with his aggressive but passionate bars.
The 23-year-old artist’s success has moved at a fast pace over the last few years, with his music meshing between trap, drill and hip hop. The new mixtape follows a number of hyped tracks released in 2019, including “Money Hungry” together with RussMB and “Elevated” featuring Joe Black.
KJ’s music career follows a turmoutless childhood, with his famous mother, Daniella Westbrook of British drama series Eastenders, battling a public cocaine addiction. Although clean now, these troublesome times inspired KJ to make something of himself outside his family name.
