Since his April 2021 EP KO, SSGKobe has been drawing the eye of every new wave rap enthusiast with each subsequent drop. Whether it be mosh-pit inducing hits like “MIA” and “Caddy” or SoundCloud exclusives like his Lil Yachty collab or New Year’s two-pack, Kobe’s consistency has been elite.
Now, the teenage phenom is back, releasing his new single “Don’t Miss” at midnight ET on Jan. 28, accompanied by a fascinating music video.
Kobe had been teasing “Don’t Miss” all month long, as the fiery hook where he marvels at his gun’s accuracy contains his trademark, high-pitched crooning.
Laced all over the track are harmonized “yeah” and “hey” ad-libs, complimenting the consistent melodic vibe of the cut. Although “Don’t Miss” contains these thumping 808s and smooth atmosphere, the lyrics Kobe croons serve as a warning to adversaries of his intimidating capabilities.
I’m with the chrome, n***a
Choppa aiming at his dome, n***a
I’ma talk to my bro ’cause he gotta stop pouring up the fours, n***a (Yeah)
Gotta watch for the fake n****s ’round your circle, they be gettin’ close witcha (Yeah)
Pull up to a nigga block and shoot his whole crew, n***a, that’s like four swishers“Don’t Miss” — SSGKobe
The visuals for “Don’t Miss” see the youngster cooking up a concoction in a school lab — assuring him in warding off enemies. When these intruders converge upon him, he whips out his powerfully charged wand to vanquish them.
Along with “ESCAPE,” Kobe’s 2022 is off to a momentous start, including his recent visit to KayCyy‘s album camp this past week, likely confirming a collaboration between the two rising artists on the YZY signee’s album Who Is KayCyy?
