On Thursday, Bronx drill phenom Kay Flock dropped the highly anticipated remix of one of his early standout tracks, “Being Honest” - perfectly paired with the complementary style of Chicago drill legend, G Herbo. The “Being Honest” remix is already Trending on YouTube (racking up over 500K views in its first 24 hours) and comes with the long-awaited arrival of Kay Flock’s first official project, ‘The DOA Tape’ - what is essentially a collection of the 8 red-hot songs that turned Kay Flock into the rising star we see today.
“Being Honest” is an important track for Kay Flock. When the original version first dropped this summer (racking up over 4.5M views) it showed a different side of the young Bronx driller, normally known for his aggressive, in-your-face drill bars. Kay takes advantage of the softened, vocal-sample-led beat (produced by the talented Sho Beatz out of Queens) to paint sobering pictures of life in the fast lane. On the remix, G Herbo perfectly matches Kay Flock’s gritty, introspective energy - elevating the track even further with his own reflective verse and intricate, asymmetrical flow he’s been perfecting lately.
The tightly executed visual for the “Being Honest” Remix (directed by Alex & Tristan Demic of RingRing Visuals) features Kay and Herbo side-by-side in the middle of what we can only assume is Kay Flock’s apartment complex - accompanied by an impressively deep crowd and what looks to be their entire jewelry collection. In addition to Herbo and the sturdy movements of Kay’s right-hand man, Dougie B, eagle eyed viewers will spot cameos from Lil Bibby, 917Rackz, OnPointLikeOP, Max Milly, and more - and extra bonus points for noticing Kay Flock wearing the same hoodie as the original “Being Honest” video.
“Being Honest” is accompanied by Kay Flock’s official label debut under Capitol Records, ‘The DOA Tape’ - containing many of his most recognizable tracks including “Is Ya Ready”, “PSA”, “Opp Spotter’ feat. B Lovee, and of course the viral breakout hit “Brotherly Love” with B Lovee and Dougie B (the videos for which have 7M, 3.9M, 2.8M, and 6.5M views respectively.) Fresh off his first appearance at NYC’s Rolling Loud, his first solo interview with Hakeem from Our Generation Music, and now with the high-profile release of his first official project. This is only the beginning of the rising Bronx drill star’s ascent into the mainstream.
