Young Stoner Life Records recording artist Yung Kayo releases his new single and video ‘it’s a monday’. ‘it’s a monday’ is the first single off of his highly anticipated project DTFK, coming next month. The track’s bold lyrics and heavy-hitting trap beat showcases Kayo’s signature style and blurs the lines between hip hop and rock, transporting listeners to a lively moshpit, sure to cure Sunday Scaries. The release comes alongside a vibrant visual, directed by Kevin Moon (who has frequently worked with Kanye West), stars the DMV native front and center as he spits bars at different locations throughout his hometown of Washington, DC.
‘it’s a monday’ is the latest release from Kayo since his project work in progress, released last year, which showcased Kayo’s futuristic rap style and ambiguous persona and featured notable tracks like “contour”. To marry his passions for music and fashion, the cover art for work in progress was designed by Japanese streetwear designer Verdy. His other past releases also take inspiration from fashion/streetwear brands; “bstroy socks” (named after streetwear brand bstroy, founded by Kayo’s good friend Duey Catorze who also designed the single cover art) and “not in the mood” (inspired by the brand mood swings, which is co-owned by Kayo’s older brother). Kayo is a multifaceted artist, constantly exploring his niche in rap and fashion, along with his knack for visuals and aesthetics. Just last week, he could be seen walking in Alyx’s Milan Spring 2022 Fashion show. Last Spring, Kayo appeared on Young Stoner Life Records’ compilation album Slime Language 2, where he can be heard on standout tracks “Proud Of You” alongside Young Thug & Lil Uzi Vert and “GFU” with Yak Gotti & Shek Wes. Yung Kayo is making waves with his up-tempo rap style that melds his fluid flows and undeniable energy. As he gears up for the release of his next project DTFK, Kayo is proving that whether fans want to rage in a mosh pit or vibe to a melody he’s capable of doing it all.
