City Kid – Hot Copy
City Kid – Hot Copy
The latest Mixtape from City Kid features Snakeyman, Pyrelli and more.
A collection of tracks with a nice consistency throughout, allowing you to get a real feel of what City Kid is about.
Clearly spoken wordplay over well crafted and produced beats has City Kid up there with the best of them and wouldn’t have anyone surprised if he was to pick a major label deal.
City Kid shows his ability to ‘own’ various types of beats whether it the softer more radio friendly piano led production of ‘Wanna Play’ or grittier beats such as on ‘Runway’ or ‘Round Here’.
Start to finish this mixtape is well above average. If you know about City Kid then you probably expect nothing less, if this is your introduction to City Kid then I think you’ll be more than satisfied.
Standout tracks are:
The Comeup ft Snakeyman and Clencha
The Night ft Darren M
Big Boiz Do Big Thingz ft Retro and Darren M
Wanna Play ft Blue
Miss Understanding ft Pepstar
Mixtape album score: 7.5/10
For me, an essential download, heavy from start to finish.
May not be gritty enough for all – but no one can doubt the talent and well put together album

About City Kid:
City Kid comes from a musical background, his mother played the keyboard, and his father was a DJ in the early eighties. “There is always music playing in my house”. City Kid confesses. “Angie Stone, Luther Vandross, Bob Marley, Aerosmith, Calvin Harris, we love and appreciate all genres of music”.
Growing up and listening to music everyday has been the catalyst for his success. He uses his astute musical knowledge to make each song on his album sound distinctively different. With songs such as, Back Door Creep and My Queen, H shows a musical diversity, which should not be contained. During 2008, City Kid allowed his musical ambitions, to take him to the US to record. This enterprising young man was so motivated after this trip, that when he arrived home he began to work on his next project, building himself a studio.
It was after that attainment that H began working on his pre album City Kidz, which he independently pre released, via download and CD, free during 2009 continuing through to 2010. With an array of talents on display and armed with a team of music critics, City Kid is showing that he can triumph his highest hopes, of succeeding completely within the Music Industry inside 2010.
