It may sound cliche, but the music industry is not for the weak spirited. For every overnight success or one-hit-wonder, there are countless stories of people going through 10-year journeys in order to get to a point of comfortability in the business. Los Angeles native Wakko The Kidd understands this notion perfectly, as he's spent the last decade endearing himself around L.A. through affiliations with labels like Grand Hustle and Strange Music, as well as with artists like B.O.B., Compton Menace and the late Bankroll Fresh. Looking to start cashing in on some of the connections he's made, he checks into our pages for the first time with his festive new video for, "Diamond Choker."
Set to the tone of brooding synths and rapid hi-hats, "Diamond Choker," is an energetic record that finds Wakko displaying his quick-twitch flows and clever ability to head-turning punchlines. Calling on a feature from Desto Dubb, one of the L.A. underground staples, the two showcase a notable chemistry both on the song and in person, as they infectiously bounce flows off one another, creating an engaging vibe. Similarly, throughout the Angelo Valentino directed video, we see Wakko and Dubb having a great time, as they're draped in psychedelic visual effects that do a brilliant job of complimenting the aforementioned fast-paced flows. Overall, the two showcase enough over the engaging video to warrant interest in a few more collaborations.
