St. Louis has been one of my favorite places for a long time. I have lived within 2 hours of the city for most of my life. So when KV the Writer premiered the B.A.N. video and I realized she is from STL I was geeked!
Now I'm gone ahead and put the disclaimer out there again and say I'm not a writer or a journalist, not anything close. I have to mention this because KV is a writer. She has an entire poetry book that she has written that is award-winning. I hope to get to have her on the podcast and dive deep into her passion and projects she has completed.
Today we are discussing her music. As I mentioned before the single B.A.N. is what caught my attention. Specifically the repeated chant, I SEE THE BITCH IN YOU NIGGA. There was a song out when I was younger titled Run Up Get Done Up by Da Bangaz. This was right around the time Crime Mob was bussin. Anyway, KV seems to have channeled that energy and aimed it at dudes who claim to be real. Guys who claim to keep it 100 but don't, plain and simple. She transforms the chant and makes it her own for her purpose. Check out the video and track below:
The Ratchet Tape features five tracks that keep you engaged and lit the entire listen. Pick a track and let us know which one you like the best. Also, be on the lookout for KV future projects.
