Kid Sublime is making noise again! We’re very excited to present “Own World”, the first single from his LP “Rappin’ Blak”. Three years after his debut album “Basement Soul” Kid returns with his darkest release to date. Expect hip-hop, ‘Sublime style’, with guest appearances by Camp Lo, Frank N Dank, Illa J, Defari among others.
On the title track Kid finds himself in his ‘own world’ on a beat which was started out life as remix for the Brazilian/Dutch super group Zuco 103. As a result - Kid rhymes on the beat himself leaving you exposed to his world. The soulful “Pityful Times” appears as an (short) skit on the album while the extended cut is exclusively available on the B-side of this twelve inch. Besides Kid Sublime this track features Amsterdam’s finest vocal weapon, Ninthe on the hook.
Kid Sublime toured with Zuco 103 and Guru as a DJ, and co-founded the Rednose Distrikt collective, which he left to focus on his debut album “Basement Soul”. After that he put out records with Frank N Dank, Les Deal, Wouda and did remixes for the likes of Harry Swinger, Rob Scott, Recloose, J*Davey….
