I’m On Top: Garden Grove rapper Wild Kin wonders why they jumped ship on ‘Lane Switch’

As he ruggedly asks why some of his former friends changed so quickly as they drove away from the plan that was set out before, Wild Kin battles on in the only way he knows how on ‘Lane Switch‘.

Wild Kin is a underground Garden Grove, California-based indie rapper. He makes that ravenously hungry-to-baller-riches type of music, as he is from the slums where you aren’t supposed to get out from, and wants to make sure that he gets away from that life forever.

With a frustrated glance to each side as he looks around with a scowl, he wonders what happened to so many who he thought were real in his life. They vanished like quickly-diluted powder into the washing machine of temptation, never to return again. You feel the fiery anger in his voice as he dusts off their memory into the trash can, vowing to keep his circle tight and full of real soldiers only.

Lane Switch‘ from the street-smart and supremely self-confident Garden Grove, California-based rapper Wild Kin, has him revving up to full speed and sliding swiftly to where he wants to be at. He has an extra edgy style that shows you that he is for real – as he forges his path to greatness in this darkly-lit world – which is crying out for proper role models to teach the youth.
