Holy f*ing sh*t can this guy rap his ass off! I’m not one to ever curse but listening to K.A.A.N. really stopped me in my tracks. I don’t think we’ve heard a rapper that can spit at a pace like this since Chip-Fu of the Fu-Schnikens. Produced entirely by K-Def, this one is a must listen. K.A.A.N. sounds like a polished season veteran, so the fact that he is a young artist is a real treat.
