As the project states: “Outta retirement for environment, off kilter the kinfolk still sound dope”. Being off kilter means to be off balance and that’s how the industry operates right now. Things like authenticity, diversity, uniqueness and creativity are now found few and far between. Kinfolk are fellow artists who stay true to themselves and their sound. There’s a lack of substance filling the streets so I had to come back and put together this project to showcase another purposeful collaboration. Kilter Kin picks up where 2017’s Curandera project ended. The content is lighter this time around but always groundbreaking. Ottawa’s Nic Grhymes shreds his opportunity on the mic at the heels of his own project “The Sawlid Act” released on the historical October 17th. The experience doesn’t end without a career spanning verse over dusty resonant soundscapes. Production by Madlib, Dorian Concept and Hprizm. Nic Grhymes, Atomez and Street Scholar bring the project sustenance as purposeful guest appearances in this en morceau bundle.
