Kembe X lets out “Poker Face,” the second song from his upcoming EP, Scion AV Presents: Kembe X. It’s a woozy head-nodder from the 19-year-old rapper currently gaining ground in Chicago’s fertile rap scene, and now you can stream or download it for free. Tune your brain into the strange frequency that Kembe X is currently broadcasting from and your hip-hop summer might get a little psychedelic. It’s far out.
His debut mixtape “Self Rule” was well received, and his second project, Soundtrack II Armageddon EP, dropped in February 2012 to much critical acclaim. Kembe’s music has been featured on sites such as Complex, Mass Appeal, 2dopeboyz, Fake Shore Drive, IllRoots and Forbes. He recently relocated to Los Angeles, Calif., and has been working on a full length album to follow up those previous efforts.
Scion AV Presents: Kembe X will be released on August 19 and will be followed by a video later in the month.
