The meteoric rise of rap stars these days isn’t too rare a sight to witness anymore and the next rapper to emerge from SoundCloud’s fortress, Big Kaino, seems to follow a familiar pattern that suggests the same for his career. After dropping off his “Asshole” debut single in 2018, nabbing a No Jumper cosign and reportedly turning down a Def Jam deal in the process, Kaino returns this year to capitalize on the momentum with his latest “On Me” track.
While Big Kaino has split his time between Georgia and Florida, one can’t help but draw comparisons from his sound and that of Chicago’s drill scene as copious amounts of energy and a certain level of indifference characterize Kaino when he hops over the Xan Moschino-produced backdrop on this one.
Get into “On Me” down below.
Kaino, he’s the fucking worst
Do you dirt and come in first
Momma told me, “N-gga, shit ain’t free,
So you better work”
