Listen: KD Young Cocky – “Take A Hit”

The Str8Drop Entertainment team closed out the 4th quarter with a little something to heat up your winter. He’s a Chicago artist that goes by the name KD Young Cocky. He has a new project titled Take A Hit ready for your ears on Soundcloud right now!

Take A Hit has features from Chicago’s rising star and 2016 Freshman Lister, G Herbo on “Nervous”. KD also has Atlanta’s YFN Lucci on “Lifestyle”. YFN had one of the more notable songs of 2016, “Key To The Streets” featuring Migos and later got a remix featuring 2 Chainz.

KD Young Cocky has also gotten the attention of tastemaker, Karen Civil. You can check him out on the Civil Scope on her website.

Take A Hit is full of 808, bounce and KD’s reflections of his road to riches. The project is full of lyrics with “Got to make something shake” emotions and affirmations. Hustler In Me”, “Make It” “Goals” and “Lifestyle” are great examples of that.

I really dig the combination of KD and XODB of Hyrdox. This tandem has some of the brightest spots on the project. “Goals” is my hands down favorite.

Chicago music keeps moving forward and KD Young Cocky is part of that movement. Get your ears around this and show him you’re down with the movement.
