MyKey (half of the rap duo known as The Steptwins) just released the second single off his upcoming debut album, $IGNFELD. The banging tune is called ‘GROWN A$$ KID’ has already been getting some major love since its release. This is the first solo release by MyKey since his departure from Innanetwav. He has since managed to establish a fan base in Pretoria as an independent artist, working with Centurion-based collective, Slumprine.
“The concept for $IGNFELD hit me during my a studio session we had in Centurion, right after I moved to Pretoria in September of last year. We spent a week in that studio, living off an egg and bread diet the entire time. We had just enough resources to get us through the week and we were just making song after song. It became apparent that there was solid chemistry between me and Slumprine as a whole. So I decided to join the group and we released a song called ‘PIECE $IGN FREESTYLE’ on Soundcloud, just to test the waters. The response was good. Soon after that we released the first official single off the album, VO$$, which has almost 10K plays currently on Soundcloud. That’s when I knew we were onto something major and we’ve been working hard to put this album together ever since.” – MyKey
