SIIMBA LIIVES LONG Releases "Bad For The Soul" Feat. Kamau
Brooklyn-based artist SIIMBA LIIVES LONG has released a killer new single 'Bad For The Soul' featuring Kamau.
SIIMBA has received a whirlwind of critical praise thanks to a combination of introspective rhymes and live stunts that can include anything from fire breathing to lion taming.
Earlier this year, he revealed a music video for new single "Hooked" that saw SIIMBA undergo a death-defying four-minutes where the Ethiopian-American rapper is suspended from hooks as he unleashes his tale of addiction and quite literally brings the track's title metaphor to life. SIIMBA also performed this stunt live at Treble FM's 1 year anniversary event at Brooklyn's House Of Yes earlier this year- in addition to his trademark fire breathing.
Now off the hooks and standing on solid ground, SIIMBA is ready to unveal the next gem in his discography, this time with brand new single "BAD FOR THE SOUL" featuring KAMAU. Composed on top of a stripped back drum rhythm, "BAD FOR THE SOUL" showcases SIIMBA's vocal delivery and skills in the songwriting arena. Joining him on the single, KAMAU lends his renowned artistic prowess for a verse. As for how the single came to be, SIIMBA describes the organic nature in which the track came together.
"KAMAU is a good friend and we’ve lived together for a while and people always love when we collaborate on songs so we finally decided to work on some more music together. BAD FOR THE SOUL (prod by Coastyn) is just a super minimal record about avoiding negative energy or entities while on our path and goal of moving forward. It’s something we’ve both dealt with and as you progress there will be certain beings who do not want to see you get to that next level. The song is so stripped down but it knocks!"
