Rising Rapper Kuda Returns With Extraordinary "Down There"
Rising 21-year-old rapper Kuda has returned with his latest single, “Down There”. Hailing from Raleigh, North Carolina, Kuda has been going from strength to strength since bursting on the scene a few years ago. His last single, “Low Low”, racked up an impressive 1 million+ streams on Spotify alone as an independent release, and he looks set to reach even greater heights with “Down There”.
With catchy melodies, flavourful punchlines and spacey synth-driven production, the track showcases just why Kuda has been such a hit with listeners online and why he’s an artist to watch out for. Taking the psychedelic and introspective style pioneered by the likes of Kanye West and Kid Cudi in a direction that is uniquely his own, Kuda invites listeners to get to know more about him through the song as he gives a sneak peek into his life.
Elaborating further, Kuda says, “‘Down There’ is a single about how far I've come. There was a time in my life where I was extremely concerned about what others thought about me, and I didn't believe in myself or my own view of the world. Nowadays I have built myself up in a lot of ways and I'm proud of that, and this song captures the confidence I have now where I trust my own views and ideas first when it’s a situation that pertains to only me because I know myself better than anyone else. It also gives you a peek into different stuff going on in my life, the party lifestyle, all that.”
With endless talent to supplement his developed sound and individual style, Kuda is still really only just getting started, which is part of what makes him so exciting. And with his audience growing rapidly with each release, it’s clear the rising rapper has an exciting future ahead, so expect to see and hear plenty more from him over the next year as he unveils more music.
“Down There” is available to buy/stream now on all platforms.
