Rapper and star on the rise KhakiKid has today released his debut EP Elevator Music, along with new single and video ‘Babybrown’. Featuring previous singles 'Woodstock’, ‘Sports & Tattoos’ and ‘Shlumped Up’, which has racked up over 2 million streams already, Elevator Music cements KhakiKid as an undeniably fresh presence in the burgeoning Irish rap scene, capturing the essence of summer in his unique sonic world and marking him as one of the most еxciting new artists to watch in 2022.
KhakiKid has had a whirlwind of a start to his career - exploding onto the scene less than two years ago, drawing in fans instantly with his alt-style and distinctive tone. Growing up in a large family in Crumlin, Dublin, sharing a room with 3 siblings, there was never a quiet moment. Huss had to grow up a lot quicker than most, and poured his heart into writing lyrics in his teen years and teaching himself to produce from his bedroom, influenced by the evolution of Mac Miller and the authenticity of Tyler, The Creator.
Following on from the artist’s sold-out 300 cap headline show in Dublin, previous singles ‘Shlumped Up’ and ‘Cozy’ have been greatly-received, with continued support from BBC Radio 1’s Jack Saunders, District, Hot Press, Notion, NME and more. Keep your eyes peeled on what’s next - KhakiKid is just getting started.
