C.K.G is an award-winning rapper, songwriter and producer from Chicago, Illinois. The genre-bending artist’s music has been licensed for film and television productions in over 55 countries. Throughout his career he has produced hits in Hip-hop, Pop, R&B and EDM.
He made his professional solo recording debut over ten years ago with the single “Bedroom.” That track introduced a talented beatmaker and rapper with one eye on the mainstream and the other on the classic beats and flow of Hip-hop’s roots. Since then, the versatile and prolific producer has delivered dozens of club bangers, slow jams and Hip-hop grooves.
“Pressure” is the latest single from C.K.G, released worldwide to all major streaming services on January 1, 2022. From the song’s opening Dre-style analog synths to its Lo-fi breakbeat, it is clear from the outset that we’re in for an old-school jam. C.K.G seals the deal with an early shoutout to 2PAC.
An organic ensemble of guitar, bass and organ enter the mix and lay down a timeless funk. As that house party groove rolls on, C.K.G trades verses with a female rapper. Each emcee riffs on the song’s title with a confident, smooth and lyrical style.
