Last May, Chicago’s very own multi-nominated Grammy Award-nominated producer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, composer, personality, actor, and co-founder of Da Internz, Kosine. Released his very inspiring and uplifting debut single, Kings.
The record finding Kosine over the cinematic strings, airy horns, lilting guitar, and echoing beats, immediately take hold with his raw emotion and vocals before a chantable chorus lifts off. As he claims, “Kings are falling everyday, but kings are rising just the same” before dipping into his very energetic rhymes. While A-list actor Idris Elba delivers a show-stopping spoken word cameo guest feature.
Released a day before my Father’s unfortunate passing last year. The record really hit home even more for me at that time, which is why it was good to get and hear such an inspiring and uplifting song at that particular time.
While now nearly eight months after its initial release. Kosine returns to the record by releasing/debuting today an actual proper music video. Appropriately on Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The new visual, like the actual record. An uplifting and inspiring one that shows Kosine with his fellow, “Kings” celebrating legacy, Black Kings and what they have overcome to get where they are. As he sings the inspiring and uplifting lyrics.
This is not just a music video, but also a trailer for the, Re-Write Ya Life, documentary. That delves into the amazing life and journey of Kosine as both an artist and producer. That has helped craft some of Hip-Hop and R&B/Soul’s greatest hits of the last decade-plus, as one half of the great production duo of, Da Internz.
If that wasn’t enough. Kosine also released purposely today on Martin Luther King Day, the remix for, King. That features fellow Chicago emcees Marcus Black and G Herbo. With Kosine having the following to say about the remix, “This version, releasing on MLK Day, celebrating the legacy of fallen kings and the strength of the kings who continue to rise even in the face of unprecedented adversity…it’s too perfect.”
