Skilled artisans of the trade slip new music to us.
Smooth flows and indelible deliveries are part and parcel for Kota The Friend, and with Statik Selektah behind the beat, they highlight new art with colourful mounts.
Speaking about the track, Kota said: “Real Ones is about appreciating the people that really stand by you and love you for who you are. It’s for those people who believe in you even when you’re knocked down and things aren’t looking too good.”
Kota The Friend and Statik Selektah last shared the mic and production plateau on To Kill a Sunrise, an album lauded by the Hip-Hop community and still referenced frequently by critics and fans alike.
The rapper put out the track sending thanks to supporters and close ones, saying: “Instead of focusing on the non-believers I wanted to shine some light on those friends, family, and fans who showed up when I was at my lowest. This is an appreciation track that many people can relate to. We should all appreciate the Real Ones in our lives.”
