It’s been awhile since I’ve guest blogged for BeforeBigs but I’m stoked to be back and giving you guys the latest info on one of my favorite rap duos, Kinetics & One Love. I think the reason I dig these guys so much is because they’re more than just rappers: these dudes are straight up ballers. Having met as students at Cornell University and forming a collaboration out of a mutual passion for music, they soon after created the chorus to B.o.B’s smash hit “Airplanes” which reached No. 2 on the iTune’s singles chart just days after its release. Since then, the gifted pair has been consistently turning out songs under the Warner Music Group label that blow my mind both soundwise and lyrically.
In an industry that has become over saturated with all these wannabe’s who spit about how they ball so hard and all I hear is “blah blah blah,” Kinetics & One Love brings something to the stage that is so real and so raw. Their lyrics are deep and from the heart – the gut if you will – and coupled with metaphors that are provocative and make you think about the deeper things in life.
With all that being said, I was beyond stoked when Kinetics & One Love officially released the music video for the orchestral version of their song “Sign Language.” I distinctly remember saying to myself, “this needs to be the future of rap.” The video also features performances by Vita Chambers of Universal Republic Records and the Shattered Glass Chamber Orchestra.
