Understandud New Chill Freestyle ‘okok’


Understandud is an emerging independent alternative hip-hop artist from Los Angeles, California. With a style that combines elements of old-school hip-hop, psychedelic rock and jazz he creates a chilled vibe. As a rapper he has a mellow, verbose lyrical style.

Citing a wide range of influences from Kid Cudi to Nirvana, Understandud has a versatile and fluid sound. Since dropping his debut single “dreams” in 2020, Understandud (aka uud or ud) has released four singles. Each track takes a different path through the worlds of trip-hop and lo-fi hip-hop. Oldies rock, funk and r&b samples ride downtempo beats in a psychedelic haze of synths and found sounds.  

“okok” is the latest single from understandud, released worldwide via all major streaming services on July 29, 2022. The track rides a classic 70’s soul sample over a laid-back boombap beat. Ud steps to the mic with a smoked-out freestyle rap. He has a cool and confident flow, even when rhyming about the uncertainty of life.

I was walking through the haze of hate and love, movement but stillness, certainty yet unknowing. OKOK is something I say when it's about time for me to take action and stop listening & thinking.
