“Can’t handle this smoke, this shi* get to my lungs, I know where I been and I know where I’m going…”
– quote from “Cent”
Emerging Arkansas rapper, Cee Kay, has released his new single and video “Cent” through Hikari-Ultra/Republic Records.
“Cent” follows almost immediately after his last track release “Mona Lisa” and have attracted critical acclaim. DuJour who wrote, “His passion and soul is clear throughout his music” rated the song among “our top five favorite new song releases”.
The video track features a trap beat that highlights his cadences which flows smoothly thus, producing a rich melodic hook. The visual has him spit out of a broken-down old Arkansas haunt alongside his friends.
Most of Cee Kay’s life growing up wasn’t so pleasant. Coming from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, a neighborhood riddled with violence, Cee Kay witnessed lots of gang wars. “Life in Pine Bluff is crazy”, Cee Kay said.
However, the young rapper didn’t let that get in the way. He realized the better way as he found solace in his rhymes. He started writing rhymes at 13 and recording tracks with the likes of 50 Cent as his source of inspiration.
Earlier this year, Cee Kay moved up his ascent to hip-hop’s heavyweight class offering one bussing hot release after another. One of his most recent, “Drugs” does bang and has earned critical nods. According to Imprint prediction, he is “geared to become a force in rap, maintaining a credo of remaining true to himself and the code of the streets”.
He definitely has more coming his way as hip hop Vibe also crowned him, “Next To Blow Out Of The South”. The rapper’s “Pressure” featuring YoungBoy Never Broke Again has gathered close to 10 million streams and have received appraisals from HipHopDX, XXL, and more.
Watch out for more from Cee Kay.
