Today, North Philadelphia rapper YXNG K.A releases thrilling video for track “Got To” from the recently released deluxe edition of his 2020 album REAPER SZN. The teenage MC builds out the low-key blues of that contemplative record with new additions like the electric, emotional “Why Would I” with Chicago heavyweight Lil Durk. This new version of the record is a sprawling release that solidifies K.A as one of the most poignant, affecting new rappers working.
The deluxe version of REAPER SZN comes on the heels of a big year for K.A. The original, which featured guest spots from fellow stars J.I., Lil Tjay, and Don Q among others, came out at the close of 2020. It was the follow-up to his debut EP, BABY REAPER, which came out in May via Double O Records / Interscope Records. His music to date reflects the young rapper’s wise-beyond-his-years writing, which has earned him co-signs from stars like 21 Savage, Meek Mill, and more. It also landed YXNG K.A a major-label deal just months after he created his first song. If REAPER SZN was the appetizer, consider this deluxe edition the main course.
