Sam Kay – “Gorgeous”

Hip Hop, R&B, Rap, UK Asian

SCORE: 6.6

And we thought Valentines Day was all about love… Turns out Shizzio had other ideas, as he decided to launch an astonishing attack on Sam Kay. Previously known as Sam K, then Sam Khan, it all suddenly turned into Shizzio – for reasons only beknownst to him – starting to throw premeditated Twitter jabs at Sam Kay about why he changed his name. It was an unnecessary and self-defeating move from Shizzio, and worked only to ramp up the suspicion that he is indeed the “Wiley of Asian music” – and surely “K, Khan or Kay” is less of an issue than Sam whipping ass in a battle. There must be more logical targets to pick on for Shizzio, perhaps spurned by Kay’s seeming lack of “Burban” adoption. Besides, Sam Kay doesn’t suffer fools gladly, and Shizzio basically lobbed a few grenades and legged it. It was all rather unsettling and unseemly, in contrast to the track “Gorgeous” that Kay released on the day. Here we have a blatant track for the ladeez (nothing wrong with that, especially on V-Day) produced by Rimshox, with decent production and a superb chorus. To be honest, there’s not much else to say about the song, it’s all relatively straightforward fare (part of a forthcoming EP from Kay). More interesting tales lie ahead, particularly in relation to what direction Sam “The Artist” takes. (Reviewed by Rahul)
