Kyle Rapps and Hefna Gwap join forces with Aaron Cohen on this neighbourhood ode titled Searchin‘. A smooth flowing tune where each emcee details their intentions and then some before spilling it on wax.
The song is taken from Kyle Rapps & Hefna Gwap’s collaborative effort titled European Tic Tacs.
No matter how far Kyle Rapps, Hefna Gwap and Aaron Cohen go, they’ll always carry their neighborhoods on their back. Produced by Fudge, “Searchin,” borrows a slick sample of Roy Ayers’ hit of the same title, as originally featured on the ’71 release off his quinquennial LP, Ubiquity. The track seamlessly blends the off-the-record narrative of all three artists, as they reflect on their upbringing, fears, and individuality, as the beat builds over a set of breezy horns, and Biggie quotables. Directed by Jason Ano of ASAP Rocky’s “Purple Swag” fame, “Searchin,” shows us that in a time when the Internet has become the stomping ground for artists to exhibit their talent, your own community is still important. “Searchin” is now available on Kyle Rapps & Hefna Gwap’s free release, European Tic Tacs, which can be downloaded via Mishka’s Bandcamp page…enjoy!
