Status Check :: Kydd Jones Drops ‘Icon’ Track And Video

a1266377717_10

Kydd Jones is back at it again, and this time we’re getting a double dose of work in the form of a single release and a music video for his latest song, Icon.  Kydd has really found his pocket these days, with his calm yet assured style sitting perfectly inside the TyOnDaTrack-produced beat.  I’ve always been a fan of Kydd and the LNS crew, and work like this just furthers those feelings.  Check out the song and the video, spread it around for others to dig, and keep supporting your local creatives!

Summer Vibes :: The Kid Crio Drops ‘May Weather’

artworks-000528348510-6tpk8k-t500x500

Austin-based artist The Kid Crio hit me up recently to let me know about May Weather, the Kydd Jones produced track he recently released, and I’ve gotta say that it’s a nice change of pace.  The Kid Crio sets aside rapid fire bars for a more stream of consciousness type of flow full of lyrical references, positive affirmations and observational statements, all of which are delivered with energy and enthusiasm.  The track bangs as well, but with Kydd Jones on the production credit, that’s a given more often than not.  This one will definitely make a mix or two, and it’s certainly worth checking out… leave a comment, and share it around so others can dig it as well.

Single Shot :: Kydd Jones And Y2 Wrap Up 2018 With ‘Ducked Off’

a2468316073_10

It feels like I say this most every post I make about Kydd Jones, but it really only seems like a matter of time before he starts making noise on the next level.  As 2018 was wrapping up and people were focusing on 2019, Kydd kept his track record of consistent, quality output going with a final single in the form of Ducked Off.  The beat itself, produced by Kydd, is sick as hell, and Kydd drops bars oozing with swagger on top of it, creating an ominous sound that has only previously been hinted at in his music.  With each release, Kydd is sounding more and more like the seasoned veteran that he has shaped in to.  Cop this one, preferably with a donation, and spread it around so that it gets all the play it deserves.

Laid Back :: Kydd Jones Performs ‘Untitled’ For Bedstock 2018

While attending and performing at Austin City Limits Festival 2018, local hip-hop standout Kydd Jones of the LNS Crew took some time to stop by Bedstock 2018 for an intimate acapella performance of Untitled.  Bedstock, an event hosted by MyMusicRx, is a Cancer awareness movement where artists perform in a bed as a show of solidarity for children fighting Cancer that are stuck in a bed.  As the flagship program for the Children’s Cancer Association, the work that MyMusicRx does is important for educating and informing all sides on an illness that has made an impact on most all of us.  It’s good to see artists like Kydd take the time to align themselves with positive groups like this, as it shows a real awareness of how much weight their voices carry, and it can hopefully help in the efforts of finding cures and affordable treatment for all dealing with Cancer.

Crystalized Visual :: Kydd Jones Drops ‘Dripped Up’ Music Video On The Masses

A while back, I did a piece on the catchy Kydd Jones cut Dripped Up.  I’m happy to announce that Kydd has boomeranged back around with a dope video for the track.  The video has a solid, sleek and professional look, a reflection of all the progress and growth from Kydd‘s camp the last couple of years.  This one should definitely make some waves, so do your part by liking, sharing and commenting.

Fine Tuning :: Kydd Jones Drops ‘Brand New’ Via Kitsuné Hot Stream

Screenshot_1

If Kydd Jones doesn’t blow in 2018, I will be extremely surprised.  Over the past couple of years, he has honed in on a sound that is definitely working for him.  He is able to make music that fits in with the mainstream artist output while being able to remain true to himself and his artistic drive.  Brand New finds Kydd spitting bars about making moves and rising to the top even when those around you seem to change with a revolving-door level of frequency.  With a co-sign from Kitsuné Hot Stream, this one should definitely see some traction.  Don’t forget, however, to give it a like, a share and a comment, for the sake of Austin hip-hop.

Being There :: Kydd Jones Releases ‘Revenge’ Single

a1594213118_10

It’s another one from Kydd Jones, and it’s just further evidence that he is on a path towards growth, depth and expansion.  This go round covers a topic I know a bit too well… dedication in the face of a situation that does not turn out as expected.  Revenge is an oath that, despite you not being there for your reasons, Kydd will be there for you when it counts.  The track is a wonderfully slow burn, and I found myself giving it repeat listens with each visit.  At this point, I’m definitely curious to hear what his next full length will sound like.
