It seems as though SSGKobe’s long-awaited debut album, U4EYA, is right around the corner.
Taking to Twitter to cryptically reveal a “11/18” release date, the Louisiana rapper didn’t leave fans empty-handed with mysterious social posts — teaming up with producer Bhristo for a new surprise track, “EYELIDS,” on Monday night (Oct. 17).
Although the new wave star’s previous single, “Luv U Back,” was a slow melodic banger, “EYELIDS” expands on Kobe’s rage-inducing, hyper-blended sound altogether. Bhristo’s trap instrumental hears Kobe snap off aggressive bars with attitude. Between his angelic ad-libs and the stimulant beat, Kobe’s new track will have you nodding along only seconds in.
“Who the fuck you think you was tryna come fuck with me
All my Brodies got them beams look like a Christmas tree Just like Santa
I got hella hoes that stay on me”“EYELIDS” – SSGkobe & Bhristo
Kobe’s June teaser EP, RELAPSED, not only demonstrated his versatility as an artist, but his ability to curate an essence within a project. U4EYA is poised to be an ascension for the 18-year-old emcee. If he continues to elevate his melodic flow and R&B-rage sound, Kobe could have one of the most impressive underground projects of the year.
