No stranger to the pages of Complex, Copenhagen rapper Felix De Luca has been super consistent these last two years. A recent trip to the UK proved fruitful for De Luca, not only managing to play to his first London show alongside 808INK and Daniel OG, but also connecting with east London wordsmith Kojey Radical for "Since A Youth".
Produced by frequent collaborator Dontaxaboutit, the pair's chemistry crafts an eerie, creeping drum-led production, expertly rhymed over by the Dane and then obliterated by the Brit, with his staggered, booming timbre sliding over the beat. Coming at a time of absolute necessity, Felix reveals the motivation behind the track and its message:
"They say that the children are the future, but in the real world, the youth seem to be last in line when it comes to getting their voices heard. 'Since A Youth' represents that frustration and sense of hopelessness, that young boys and girls live with, in cities all over the world."
Felix promises a new EP later this year, but for now, press play on the track below.
