The best kept secret in music


"KD Rusha's 'Narcissism' Delivers a Lacquered Finish"

Twenty-two-year-old KD Rusha started rapping in high school at 17 and even though he's not quite old enough to sound seasoned, he has been recording long enough to sound polished. His latest album, "Narcissism, the Death of Ego," is exactly that, a lacquered set of songs supported by sleek drums and booming programming.

He's out to kill hubris, and on the opener "September," KD lets the competition know, "I'm making these moves / And y'all still snooze / The h**s gon' choose," as he stays ambitious, blending motivation with healthy self-esteem.

There's the quick strike "Why," where he's in and out, rapping to a track that sounds like whales whistling under water. From there Rusha moves onto "Hudson," which finds him sharing mixed feelings about a lady friend a-top drowsy piano keys and female vocals: "Lay back for the ride / Or maybe we can just glide / Whatever happens though / Save it in yo mind."

He sifts though familiar ideas, women, aspiration, the desire for achievement, but he also offers up candid peeks into his process. And it's in those moments, like the pensive "My Side ll," where he reveals a bit of emotion.

"She could be the one I open up to / But instead I'm at the crib with a mic in my room / So I write letters to it / It don't say much back / But I be so glad to hear my voice back on the track."

But just because he opens up doesn't mean he's sentimental, and on "Tape Deck," KD is the voice of reason, giving words of advice to a wayward crush before rattling off a litany of snow-capped images on "Cocaine White."

He ends with "Monster," putting distance between himself and those on his bumper -- "Mad progression, ya'll still behind" -- delivering a final blow to vanity and a strong finish to "Narcissism, the Death of Ego." - J. Smith


Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


KD Rusha is a Hip-Hop artist from San Diego, California. At the age of 17, KD found his knack for music and began to make songs as a hobby. As the year 2012 progressed into 2013, KD found the hobby to become a passion. In 2013, KD saw a growth in his fanbase when he released his next project, "Livelihood". On December 28, 2013, he released his biggest song to date, "One of These Days". His fanbase soon took off, as thousands upon thousands of listeners began to tune in for the release of his next project, "Arcadium". Released in 2014, "Arcadium" was filled with songs that are arguably some of his most popular works including "Tape Decks" and "Epileptic". In 2016, KD found an audience in the gaming community. This led to the creation of "One for Hazz" which released in early 2016. The song was an instant success and doubled his fanbase overnight before he enlisted in the United States Navy. While in the Navy in October of 2016, KD released his first album, "Narcissism, The Death of Ego" which landed in stores worldwide. It earned him his first radio play and was written about by NBC in San Diego. KD Rusha is set to release his next album titled “GOLD.” which is set to release in 2019 and will feature artists such as Rob Valentine and Bleev.
