I had the pleasure of reviewing the work of an up and coming artist named “LDK”. As some background info, this specific piece of work from LDK was an response due to his silence and inactivity in the music industry as well as personal issues which are expressed lyrically in the song. I appreciated the candor in this particular song. Many people, including myself, can relate to the reality of life when things aren’t going as planned, especially when being approached by personal struggles and challenges that need to be overcome. Although, the idea of the song portrays specific struggles being met by the artist, they also express how he endured and became triumphant through those personal issues, which can be a reminder for others that the very struggles we go through can definitely serve as an opportunity for self-reflection and growth of not only our inner selves, but outside aspects and indirect interventions as well.
I’ve also observed LDK’s other works like his “Rebel Friday” freestyles and such, which are pretty nice to listen to, most specifically because of the beats behind them. I also like the theme of the freestyle video, it gave me a kind of “throwback” vibe/feel with the black & white and pin-up kind of style/dress to the work, definitely my type of theme. My message to LDK would be to keep up the good work! It is always wonderful to see artists express themselves through music that can relate to a plethora of other individuals that can relate! All in all, I applaud LDK and his passion. I’d recommend LDK’s work to anyone who likes and is looking to support up and coming African artists, you wont regret it!
