Baltimore's D. King and Tate Kobang break it down, "Light It Up"

D. King, an emcee hailing from Baltimore, recently joined forces with fellow Clipper City native Tate Kobang for his fiery new single "Light It Up." The catchy record -- which features some flawless production from DJ Krisis -- isn't your average roll-it-up-and-smoke-it joint, but rather D. King's gloomy narrative of a typical day in his city.

Tate Kobang also provides a solid complimentary verse that adds some refreshing melodic texture to the joint. 

D. King's collaboration with Tate Kobang is yet another promising effort in what's been a resurgent year for Baltimore hip hop. Look out for King's upcoming debut EP Trap Man On Campus, hosted by Combat Jack. Moreover, expect a video for "Light It Up" to drop sooner rather than later. Stay woke!
