Premiere: Kay-Ara's 'The Reality Show' Mixtape

Ghanaian pidgin rapper Kay-Ara honed his skills with influences from hiplife pioneer Reggie Rockstone as well as across the ocean icons Tupac and Biggie. You might remember "Me Dough" —  his stomper track featuring Yaa Pono and Lil Shaker we featured a minute ago. In The Reality Show mixtape, Kay spits about "the jigsaw puzzle of his life" tackling both light and heavy subjects of love, karma, and the mental weight surrounding a lover's abortion. He also rhymes over past and current joints from the likes of Drake, Jeezy and Yeezy. Stream some samples and grab the entire mixtape for free below, featuring apperances by Twi Teacher and Jae Ghost.
