KanKan is not only proving he’s one of the underground’s most talented rappers, but continues to wow with his unique style.
Originally finding space as a producer during SoundCloud’s golden era in 2015-18, KanKan has evolved for the better — taking his sound a step further in the booth. Initially rapping as a joke, turns out he has a natural gift for the craft — showcasing his menacing new wave bars on his latest track “Kickback.”
With a video treatment spearheaded by buzzing director DotCom Nirvan, KanKan’s “KickBack” takes place in the Dark Knight’s Bat Cave of all places. Accompanied by a red Chevy Corvette and stunning cinematography from Nirvan, the duo creates an atmosphere unlike any other — painting a picture of street-centric luxury.
Releasing a steady string of singles over the course of 2021, KanKan has built up quite the discography. His highest streamed single “Goin To Hell” embodies his artistry perfectly — brash, bold and unafraid to take risks. On his recent EPs Oxy & Codeine and ##B4RR, KanKan continues to develop his sound with rage-filled finesse — looking forward to releasing new music in the near future.
“Kickback” is no different, pushing the envelope further with fast-paced siren synths and distorted 808s that KanKan flows over effortlessly. He spits bars about flexing bags, talking down on fake peers and more throughout the track’s 2-minute run time.
Blew a bag nigga just like last week
Told they man fuck’em they can’t catch me
Aye, In the A’s hell yeah that’s where I be

Thеse niggas they just copyKanKan — “KickBack”
Now as he continues to rise through the ranks of the underground, “Kickback” is an assertion that KanKan “Kan” truly do anything he sets his mind to.
