Austin Milby, better known as recording artist KAADENZE, put the world on notice of his game-changing arrival back September with his buzzworthy video, “Made For This”. After being forwarned, the Tustin, California rising star unveils his debut LP, creatively-titled, Land of the Wicked.
The debut is an 11-track curse-free collective that introduces us to not only the artist but Austin. A man tackling his demons, pursuing his dreams relentlessly, and never giving up. Delivering a message of faith, self-love, and unlimited possibilities through the heavenly father. Not coming off as a preacher, KAADENZE gets his point across with rhymes and sing-along hooks.
KAADENZE enlists the production expertise of well-established StealMyBeats for his first offering. StealMyBeats is best known for his work with Logic and game-changing label Top Dawg Entertainment. Supplying KAADENZE is catchy bass, deep elements, and custom classical. Giving the new artist his own infectious signature sound to make sure his message is heard clearly.
KAADENZE on the making of Land of the Wicked:
“This album forced me to give every ounce of mental, emotional, and spiritual energy I have had stored up over the countless years. With this album, my one hope and desire is that it speaks to individuals listening that they feel a presence of positivity and truth. A presence that there is hope in the midst of storms they may be facing. Speaking from a man, who myself has struggled with addiction, depression, anxiety, and heartbreak just to name a few.”
A breath of fresh air in today’s mumble, memes, and clout chasing Hip-Hop, KAADENZE’s positive message enables an alternative that is much-needed now with so much negativity going on in the world. Positive message, own style, and superior lyricism, KAADENZE is building longevity fresh out the gate. Definitely look forward to hearing more from the rising star in 2019.
