If you haven’t heard of Kmpny don’t worry because most people haven’t yet. The new duo from downtown Toronto teamed up with Atlanta’s rising star 24hrs to make their debut onto the scene with “On Road.”
On Road is on a similar sound to 24Hrs’ music, which obviously made him the perfect feature to get on this song. The duo had built a relationship with 24Hrs for quite sometime now, and also with Capo of Private Club Records whom the duo give credit for making everything happen.
Over the past few years duo acts in hip-hop and R&B have become a lot more popular. From acts like Rae Sremmurd, to OVO Sound’s Majid Jordan and DVSN, duo’s are slowly becoming a common thing in hip-hop and R&B. Much like Majid Jordan and DVSN, the producer and vocalist for Kmpny had been making music on their own before recently teaming up.
Another thing that has become a common occurrence in hip-hop is hitting the reset button on your catalogue and rebranding. This is kind of what’s happening here with Kmpny. After doing a bit of research we established that the rapper half of Kmpny is Toronto group People & Places’ rapper fka Czech Royalty. Teaming up with a producer, releasing this debut track under a new alias, and tapping ATL’s 24Hrs for a feature is Czech’s way of rebranding.
