Kid Fre$h feat. Ahmad Collins – ‘Imma Youngstar’

A beautiful RnB and rap track from Houston rapper Kid Fre$h, featuring Ahmad Collins, ‘Imma Youngstar’ is, like the artist, Fresh. Featuring a video by A.chancy Jr, the track comes from his ‘Bag SZN’ EP.

The emotion behind the lyrics, “What do you see when you look in my eyes?Nothing but struggle and passionate grind” shows us from the start how determined this artist is. Examining his life, as if he’s speaking to his best girl, Kid Fre$h paints an aural portrait of determination. The singer is constantly striving to improve himself – he’s a Youngstar, and won’t let anyone or anything stand in his way.

The jewellery, sharp clothes, fancy cars and even fancier women are the reward for a life of toil and struggle; Kid Fre$h has fought hard for everything he has. This battle is reflected in the lyrics of his tracks, which nonetheless maintain a radio-friendly pop sensibility.

Produced by Jhiame Bradshaw, the vocal melody is by Ahmad Collins, whose sweet vocal imparts a seductive tone to a textured mix, and the perfect adjunct to Kid Fre$h’s feisty rap.

A.chancy Jr.’s camera captures the pair hard at work; grinding on the street corner, hanging with beautiful women in a stylish apartment, cruising through the Downtown Los Angeles streets in a silver Porsche. On the surface they look super cool, but underneath they’re intense and determined.
