With Northside Vegas on their shoulders, Kinfolk Kollab deliver their g-funk themed anthem, “Where You From”. The song also entices listeners to rep their city while indulging in a little liquor and smoke.
Consisting of K.A.T.O. and Jamel Deon, the newly formed duo Kinfolk Kollab aim to bring the funky West Coast sound that erupted heavily in the early nineties into modern times. The fellas showcased this motive and much more on their recently released, self-titled mixtape. It features “Where You From”, one of the project’s standout singles. So standout in fact that they reached out to filmographer Amine Tanzi to deliver an official video to back it. The video finds Kinfolk Kollab posted up with their people, giving viewers a glimpse into a day in the life on set. Bottles of Henny are flowing, blunts are blazing away and brutal bars are being served up for close to four minutes.
The instrumental was crafted by Moshuun, who is a producer favorite of the crew. He uses a classic piano sound with g-synths and xylophones encapsulating the funk movement. This of course brings out the best of both artists. K.A.T.O. kicks things off hard, speaking about the cold Vegas streets.
“so many niggas wanna see me gone / you playa haters is wishing I’m all alone or catch me on my own / never stop on the wrong side, know why? / on the west side, be dead bodies on road side”.
Jamel Deon handles hook duties, giving the song it’s potent party vibe in three steps, “it goes 1 for the Henny / 2 for the hoes / 3 for the blunt wrap with the hydro”. When he moves into verse mode, Deon gives the “Where Your From” theme a more national view as K.A.T.O. served a first person POV of North Vegas. The tail end of the single finds KK rhyming in a back and forth rap rhythm that showcases their strong musical chemistry. View the official video for “Where You From” up above.
