2017 was a breakthrough year for Killy. The success of his breakthrough single “Killamonjaro” lead to some major exposure in hip hop. He’s since been working alongside Nessly, 16yrold and many others. Last Friday, he surprised the world with his first single of 2018, “Very Scary.” The young rapper followed it with the release of his debut project Surrender Your Soul on Tuesday morning. He recently joined us for the latest episode of “On The Come Up” where he spoke about his new mixtape, “Killamonjaro” and more.
Killy’s is the next one out of Toronto to blow up. His song “Killamonjaro” helped him blow up to a whole other level. However, the video came at a risk. The rapper explained that he quit his job at Nordstrom and used the last paycheque as his video budget. The move he made ended up launching his career to a whole other level.
“I think that was definitely just the beginning, really. It’s just what I had to do.” He said, “I didn’t really think twice about it. It just kind of happened.”
During our conversation, he also explained the title of Surrender Your Soul, dream collaborations, being an artist out of Toronto and more.
