poetic death 2 krFrom the boondocks/from the back of the Batcave/lies a black slave who ain’t concerned with the whips and the nice chains…

As the date approaches for our annual #Power30 Issue (on newsstands 9/3), we’re gonna break you off a little bit of a sneak peek for our next Unsigned Hype artist. KR just dropped the visuals for Part II of a track off his last mixtape, I$olyf3. One thing is for sure, the young emcee can easily keep you locked in with his flows and lyrics. The metaphors are powerful and it’s tough not to respect the kid this early in his career. Read an excerpt from the Unsigned Hype write-up we did on him and be sure to read the full piece in the issue!

Tens of thousands of fans from Australia, Netherlands, Germany, and throughout the United States. Thousands of downloads from the first mixtape. One genuine movement to join everyone who’s ever felt like an outcast through music. All of this from an 18 year old’s closet in Los Angeles. Kaalan Walker, or KR, is using the studio in his closet and a following he built for himself as a dancer when the jerking movement was buzzing in 2006 to vent his pain as a teenager.
