KayCyy, Babytron ride through ‘Motown’ on new single

KayCyy is back in the driver’s seat, making a stop in “Motown” alongside Detroit’s BabyTron for a cinematic bar-heavy cut.

Teasing the new single with fox orange, pastel artwork and a pair of visual snippets, the YZY Sound emcee leads off the new year with an unmistakable new wave collaboration.

“I used to watch my pops drink and I feel like I’m turning into him / beautiful black trauma, something we go through every season,” he raps over off-kilter vocal chops and a percussionless bounce, as a boisterous beat switch leads in Tron’s fast-paced verse. It’s another cult classic for KayCyy — still growing his fanbase ahead of his long-teased debut Who Is KayCyy?

Since his SoundCloud-only “New Music Mondays” capped off 2022, KayCyy has been diligently perfecting his sound with a slew of loose tracks. Off the back of “GODSPEED,” “LIVE MORE!”, “Breaking Point” and his EP Who Else Would It Be, the Minnesota-raised rapper is making sure everything is finely-tuned ahead of his anticipated debut.

BabyTron, who occupies our 2022 OGM All-Stars list alongside KayCyy, just shared his latest project Bin Reaper 3: New Testament on Jan. 13. A slew of stars assist the scam-rap icon on the 26-track LP, such as Lil Yachty, KanKan, Rico Nasty, Cordae, BabyFace Ray and others.

With KayCyy’s melodic style meeting Tron’s endless wordplay, “Motown” set off fireworks galore.
