KIDS – These KIDS ft. Evan Michael [Video]
Vancouver, BC – Originally published August 26, 2014 – Guess what, guys? The KIDS are back at it. And they’re hitting us with their latest set of visuals for the track “These KIDS” (featuring Evan Michael) off their brand-spankin’ new album, The Hazing.
This video embodies everything KID-ish about the KIDS. You feel me? They’re staying true to their adolescent roots and spitting rhymes in laundromats and playgrounds. Because why not? The track was recorded and mixed by Kelvin at 4am Styles Studio, and mastered by Jamie Kuse at Creative Music Studios. Check it out after the jump.
Okay. Here are some crucial highlights from the video that are of supreme importance to watch for. First, Mizzy busts a move at 0:18. And it’s better than any wild-out I’ve ever seen. It’s downright feral. And then at 0:24, Kelvin gets his lurk on. And then at 0:36, Evan jacks some girl’s beverage. Like a “Bawse” (that’s what his shirt says, by the way). Jakub Evolved also gets a little freaky-deeky in the laundromat at 0:51 by pulling out his best dance moves. And then Munro raps on the single-person seesaw at 1:11. This is unapologetic fun at its finest. Ugh. I love the KIDS.
I gotta be real with y’all: I will forever hold a soft spot for KIDS. The first show I ever reviewed for HipHopCanada was a Masta Ace show at Commonwealth in Calgary back at the beginning of 2013. KIDS opened the show. And right away, I loved the KIDS. They had this infectious enthusiasm that got things poppin’ off. I met up with the KIDS again last year when they rolled through Calgary with DL Incognito. We chopped it up. And I haven’t looked back since. I even have a purple KIDS t-shirt. Swag for days.
Anyhow, they’re back touring it up with Masta Ace and the eMC crew AGAIN this year. So watch for them stopping through in your city. It’ll be good times. Trust.
