A Fresh Freestyle Chef’ed Up by Calgary Based Rapper

The Calgary streets have been served up a vibe enough to clap, dance and bop to all at once by KTheChosen in his lively single “Fresh Freestyle”.

Formally known as Thabo Chinake, this Zimbabwean-born Calgary rapper’s freestyle showcases his witty chops.

“I can’t dictate / My lyrics are like riddles/ I’m complex / What comes next / Is contest for progress / Between those who digest / Process the content.”

Fresh Freestyle” is quick, catchy and sweet – the perfect antidote for an end-of-summer banger featuring a harmonic hook.

“I know you waiting to blow like TikTok,” is one line in the track foreshadowing how this song could soon be adapted on the popular social media app.

“So, you can come through and bring your best friend too.” KTheChosen adds as one of his many cheeky lines.

“Not only is this an easier way to digest the information but as it’s visual it’ll remain in their minds. Similarly, if you were to create a song or poem or movie. Any form of art gives people a different way to interpret information and we are more likely to remember it/share it with others.” – KTheChosen in an interview with CDLI.

This busy artist also has a number of tracks recently out from “Dear African Fathers”, to “Norman’s Tale, Pt. 5 (Quarter Life Crisis)“, as well as an eight-track EP Jouska.
