Kemba drops new reflective single “Last Year Being Broke”

On our radar since 2018 as an artist set to blow up this year, Kemba has stuck to his roots in his latest release, “Last Year Being Broke.” This track follows his pattern of creating music driven by charged bars instead of sing-song melodies. The rawness of the lyrics help him directly and concisely share his perspective on dealing with racism and poverty. He relies on his sincerity to guide the track and help him relate his experiences to his audience. Overall, the song serves as a promise to himself that life is going to get better and this is his year to succeed. The Bronx based artist performed in Chicago at Digital Freshness this past April with Brittney Carter, Calid B, DJ Ca$h Era, and DJ RTC. You can also catch him on the upcoming Closed Sessions Vol. 3 album produced entirely by BoatHouse.
