About Kay Flock:
Kay Flock’s vision of drill music feels raw and free-spirited—an unburdened, electrifying take on his city’s sound. The New York rapper has spent the last couple years making tracks that bring some of the movement’s strongest future stars together while amplifying his own, pitching drill as collaborative, energetic, and most of all, alive. His raps, captured in street smashes like “Brotherly Love,” featuring fellow Bronx MCs B-Lovee and Dougie B, demonstrate the thrill of the ecstatic genre. Every bar is spit with the pedal pressed all the way to the floor. In ways, his rise is similar to other New York drill artists, climbing from humble beginnings to the verge of the mainstream, but Kay Flock hails from the Bronx, a neighborhood that hasn’t so far produced the genre’s stars. He grew up in a rugged environment he describes as “dangerous” and, as a teenager, found escape in Brooklyn drill as well as the music of Chicago rappers like King Von. In the Bronx, Flock made lifelong friends in B-Lovee and Dougie B who, in 2020, introduced him to recording. Almost immediately, you could recognize Flock’s unmistakable talent—and his city did. Early singles like “Being Honest” and “Is Ya Ready” put Kay Flock on the map. Now, Flock has emerged as the Bronx’s and arguably New York City’s hottest new rapper. Even as Flock’s star rises, and the co-signs roll in from The New York Times, Pitchfork, No Jumper, Billboard, XXL, Consequence, and artists from Cardi B, G Herbo, Lil Tjay, Meek Mill, Fivio Foreign —he doesn’t plan to switch up. He’s staying true to himself.
