The blues are a nice fit though, even if they flow through the lens of a 26 year old Brooklyn emcee. “I make ‘em dance and depressed at the same time” is an oddly poignant mission statement in 2018. There is a whole lot to be sad about, but there's also music. And as much as Kahiem Rivera would love to drink a beer and talk your ear off about how awful it all is, he'd rather rap.
It’s not all gloom though. If you were willing to return the favor, Kahiem would tell you that he loved you, and he would mean it. He even has a song about f***ing. It was spurred by a very symbolic dream involving paper cranes, but it’s about f***ing nonetheless. And who doesn’t like f***ing?
