15 FEBRUARY 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – Fast-rising MC and lyricist King Cruff brightens the spirit with his infectious new single and music video “Soufflé” out today via Universal Music Canada/Tuff Gong Collective. Infusing positivity and playfulness into the track’s Caribbean flavoured rhythms, King Cruff serves up an irresistible danceable groove in his original ‘punky’ sound. With his intricate, rapid bars firing throughout the melody and effortlessly gliding into the pockets of the chorus, “Soufflé” is a testament to the young Canadian/Jamaican artist’s MC skills.
