Premiere: Kaddie Lak & PFunkTheKing Ask, “Can I Live”?

Screen Shot 2015-01-12 at 9.45.17 AM

In light of tragic losses of life due to sickening racism in the United States, Kaddie Lak waxes poetic about silver linings with his latest release, the aptly titled “Can I Live.” Champagne thoughts and hopeful notes are therapeutic here, an act of deserved celebration for perseverance in a too-often hostile system.

All of the song’s ingredients culminate nicely. Vohn Jovie’s slow-churning, expansive backdrop supports Lak’s wistful lyrics. The North Carolina rapper declines verbal acrobatics; instead, he’s direct and to the point: “I shouldn’t even be here/let’s get it clear.” Whether at the hands of a badge-brandishing cop or a territorial foe, death taunts Kaddie far too frequently. His deep tone and carefully timed rhymes give the impression of a wise statesmen. When Lak talks, we listen closely.

PFunkTheKing, hailing from San Francisco, joins in addressing the common goals he hopes to achieve (“provide for my lil’ ones”; “put some money in my mom’s hand”), goals barred by the struggles of an unjustly uphill battle for security and prosperity.
