Mimlife Records rapper, Kimilist returns with ‘Step In‘ – his third drop of the year and one of this week’s hottest songs, thanks to some nifty wordplay.
Produced by Iyke Parker, ‘Step In‘ comes off the back of the two’s recent work together, ‘Pressure‘. Here, Kimilist takes a step back from Drill, trading his standard street-inspired lyricism for something more-gentle in tone. Nonetheless, he still excels as a clever and entertaining wordsmith, dropping nothing but straight bars right from A-Z – all of which point to him being the life of the party, a fact he alludes to in the hook: “Came with the vibe, got the place popping/Anytime I step in everybody jamming”.
Beyond this, Kimilist’s effortless cool helps keep it all together. It steadily extracts the fun he tries to create, nicely floating over a synth-charged instrumental dominated by a combination of mellow whistles and drum drops. Hinting ‘Step In’ in a video posted on his Twitter days prior, Kimilist shared in a tweet about the new song: “Since y’all wanted to know what I got next… New Music is on the way”
Although not clear if part of his plans for an LP or EP, the new single sure is clear about one thing – Kimilist isn’t done proving himself or his craft, especially with two nominations at the Ghana Music Awards UK 2022.
