Asserting himself as the DMV’s hottest rising star, 17-year-old rapper, entrepreneur, and visionary KA$HDAMI returns with a new single entitled “posed2be.”
Listen to “posed2be:” HERE.
Over airy production from woods, he does a much-deserved lyrical victory lap following a massive breakthrough year. Synths warble through skittering 808s as he surveys his life up to this point and muses, “I turned 16, went to TikTok, and got rich.” This instantly unshakable chant hits hard as he continues to break down the boundaries between hip-hop, pop, and plugg.
