Kyle Clow doesn't necessarily sound like a typical Atlanta artist. Reminiscent of the West Coast OG's, homie has got a Top Dawg Entertainment-sounding production and tone. And now Clow is here to bless us with "These Eyes", the second single off his upcoming project titled Porch.

Produced by AHYES, the beat starts and it almost sounds like a Chance gospel song with those classic piano chords. However :08 seconds in, the mood shifts. The production becomes increasingly more heavy as Kyle spits over the beat like a young K Dot. We know that K Dot has like 45 different tones and 6 different flows that he utilizes in his rapping – but Kyle Clow has identified one of my favorite of the tones and mastered it. He possesses that quick spit, one breath flow where at any moment he could pass out from spitting too many bars without gasping for air. It's so raw and vulnerable, especially with his exposed lyrical content. His word play is absolutely nuts which is pretty rare to see nowadays with the more popular acts coming out of Atlanta. "These Eyes" is a reflection of Kyle's upbringing and how it has shaped his outlook on the world he sees today.
Stay tuned for his views from the Porch, whatever he's cooking up – we know is about to be a feast.
