With his earnest introspection and prodigious rhythmic agility, 4PF signee Lil Kee has established himself as one of the South’s most promising up-and-comers. Spitting raw reflections with unrelenting explosiveness, Lil Kee shares his new video single, “Automatic,” the latest trap ballad from his upcoming project, Letter 2 My Brother. The track finds Kee ruminating on his brother’s loss and how it seemingly tipped the balance in his fight-or-flight response in favor of the former, as he raps, “I was just walking alone on the road, wasn’t even looking for smoke/Get that lit feeling through my whole body whenever there’s knocks at the door.”
Arriving with a haunting and hard-hitting, Diesel Films-directed music video, “Automatic” comes hot on the heels of “Letter 2 My Brother,” his mixtape’s title track, which surpassed 1 million views in just three weeks.
Picking up music as a creative outlet after the loss of his cousin inspired him to keep his memory alive, Lil Baby hand-picked Lil Kee for his 4PF label roster for his ability to deliver raw street narratives and vulnerable pleas for respite with a naturally potent vocal gravitas. “I can definitely see him up next,” said Lil Baby to XXL. “Only thing he gotta do is keep his formula and just keep putting out music and he got it.”
