‘Woke Up to a Check’ is the lead track from Retrokid’s (AKA Christopher Burgy) debut 2020 hip hop album, ‘Levelling Up’, which he used to establish himself as an artist worth watching. His clever rap flows, connectable charisma and almost psychedelic instrumentals around the 808s draw you right into the essence of his high vibe hustler hip hop style.
The Louisiana-hailing independent artist‘s single has been used as a UFC walkout track, which says a lot about how much hype is in the track that takes old school influence from G Herbo, 2PAC, Dom Kennedy, Dave East. Paired with the music video that allows you to appreciate Retrokid’s playful side, Woke Up to a Check is sure to help Retrokid make his mark on the airwaves.
