Why you should check out No Sweat's rising artist Kir.
From the streets to thousands of listeners on Spotify. This is Kir thriving.
With a trajectory that would inspire all these people by itself, the streetwear savant and rising musician got a fanbase to call his own organically.
With the release of “No Sweat”, we could peek at Kir’s reference to the hustlers and go-getters.
Having moved away from the streets into a high-end mansion, what we have in hands is a metaphor of all that involves finally getting where you really wanted.
“It feels good to see all the work I’ve been putting in for years coming to the light. I learned to continue to work towards being a better me so whenever my time comes to shine I’ll be ready.”
Through lyrics with substance and aesthetically conducted by the distinguished leather uppers a lot of artists used to dream about before fame, Kir showed us why he’s one step ahead during an exclusive talk.
How do you relate the streetwear culture with music & all that lifestyle rising hip-hop artists are putting out there?
I feel like streetwear plays a big part in who I am as an artist. I may be in a pair of Jordan 1s today and some Louis Vuitton boots the next day. The fit expresses how I’m feeling similar to when I’m in the booth making music. How I feel is what’s gonna bleed on the track.
“My sneakers define the mood I’m in, but they also tell a story depending on my fit.”
Can you pick 5 favorite sneakers in your closet right now?
Five of the favorite sneakers in my closet would have to be my Jordan One Off White collection. I always have to keep a pair of fresh Air Force Ones.
I can’t forget my Alexander McQueens. They may not be running shoes, but they lay with almost anything I put on. My Palm Angels Recovery Sneakers, and most importantly my Retro Jordan One collection.
Getting closer to the most authentic forms of self-expression is the way we thrive.
