Premiere: Killa MC — “No Trigger”
Slowly but surely, Brain Gang-affiliated Fort Worth rapper Killa MC has been bubbling up across the region over the past few years, earning recognition for his sample-heavy beats, his entertaining low-budget music videos and his laid-back vocal delivery.
To date, he has just two mixtapes to his name. But that, the 24-year-old University of North Texas graduate promises, will change soon. With the help of his white-hot Brain Gang brethren, Killa is currently at work on a third release. And, this week, to tease that upcoming album, he's ready to unveil the first offering from that impending output.
The first single off of the new as-yet-untitled project is called “No Trigger,” and, like singles “IDK” and “I'm Cool” before it, it features the man born Donovan Payne reveling in his alluring, slacker rhyming wheelhouse.
Even in a party setting — as he is in the video for the new track, which he's been kind enough to let Central Track premiere here — Killa MC is not a man easily excited or swayed. But that's kind of the point. He can't be fazed.
“Yeah, I got my swag right,” he says in the first line of the new single. We're inclined to agree.
