W.I.N (Album) - KAHU$H

The pressure for rising acts to make a statement in every single musical medium possible & impressing on a single-by-single basis is one thing on its own, but it is something else to continuously keep proving themselves from project to project. 💯 And to burst on the scene with as much force as Kahush did, the logical next step would be to create something far more ambitious. 💭 His answer culminated into his new album “W.I.N” that is not only the most adequate representation of his unmistakable talent, but also one that introduces something of an untapped sense of storytelling & conceptual weight that had yet to be fully uncovered in taking in his artistry up to this point. 🌟 The confidence within this claim is simply due to how sincere & of-its-own his music is from all aspects. He has all of the songwriting capabilities of someone who has been in this craft for a minute & he presents the type of emotional maturity & the expert sense of communicating it, that is only discovered from long periods of “Trial & Error”. ⏳ Now, on “WIN” that sentiment is fully displayed through his tales of angst & genuine contemplation into one’s true self, their day-to-day struggles & the world around them, with tracks like “When I Rap” & “What Is Love” being ideal representations of this keen sense of thematic weight. ✍🏾 The same is true for the final track“Fine, Cool”, which digs even deeper into his own psyche more than any other. 🧠 However, that’s not to say the project doesn’t also address the highs & joys that come with the rise he has experienced in his musical journey so far, with a track like “Fika” being possibly the highest & hardest moment on the album. 🔥 And whether it’s his selection of carefully selected instrumentals or his skill in combining these entertaining & conceptually-sound lyrical themes into the sort of solid presentation that this project flaunts, there is simply no question that he had a lot of weight to unpack & he made sure to leave it all on the table by translating that exact essence of personal introspection into a distinctly mainstream channel & cohesive project to boot. 💽
