Viral underground Toronto rapper KILLY just dropped a new video single titled “Distance”
Toronto, ON – Earlier this week Toronto artist KILLY released a brand new video single titled “Distance” as the follow up to his previous viral record “Killamonjaro”.
Shot by limitedvision and produced by 100tones, “Distance” keeps to KILLY’s M.O. of emo, ambivalent Internet raps. He delivers to the camera with an emotionless, dead-pan performance: “Shawty do the map do the distance/ Broski got the pack he efficient/ I’m the only worthy opposition/ I don’t think you really know the feeling.”
For someone who literally only has six songs posted up on his SoundCloud (most of which are from more than a year ago) and just around 2,000 followers on Twitter, KILLY has managed to blow up on YouTube. Probably because he embodies that brand of angsty, emotionally-void turn up rap that the people want. He has a knack for churning out bangers, and has locked down the algorithm for making videos that are so authentically KILLY.
But he’s still got that dark, insecure edge that keeps him relatable. So he’ll always throw in a couple of lines to remind us that he still doesn’t think he’s as hard as he is: “Funny how now she wanna meet me/ Only thinking bout her when I’m TT/ Saying that I’m busy/ I’m not busy/ Shorty tryna lip me, forgot she used to diss me.”
