KIRBY ft. D Smoke- Superpower (Track Review)

Written by Grayson Jones 

There is so much I can talk about here. But to be concise, KIRBY and D Smoke exercise their superpowers musically through this much needed song of uplifting energy. 

The piece's theme comes from the generational game-breeding of African Americans  and how those offspring cope with the current conditions. The song brings a reminder to the culture of royalty.

Kings and Queens at the mindset, derive energy from within that can create something truly special. Not just musically- but in life. KIRBY has developed a unique feeling with the chorus here. The feeling is powerful and memorable, similar to the theme of the song. From beginning to the end the song makes beautiful detours. The song takes several pit stops with so much history behind it, that it’s hard to sit there and appreciate any singular aspect without going on a rant about something all Americans have lived through. For example, the killing of Trayvon Martin. 

The most appealing aspect of this song is the feature from D smoke. The witty forms of imagery, the skillful placement of phonemes from time spent as teacher of Spanish, and a master of his craft proven from his time on Rhythm & Flow, D smoke lays a verse that brightens such a somber topic.
