Recording under the watch of Grammy-nominated producer Salaam Remi, you’ll catch the rapper Sweet Da Kid sporting his signature ski-mask while spitting cocky and smartly-phrased lyrics. Proud to represent his roots in Camden, New Jersey, Sweet credits UGK, MF DOOM and Paul Wall as key influences on his style.
Showcasing his creative clout on his six-track debut EP, executive produced by Salaam, Your Mother’s Other Son, kicks off with “I’m Reloaded.” Boasting the firebrand ad libs of Pain in Da Ass, best known for opening Jay Z’s debut album, Reasonable Doubt, the opener introduces a run of beats produced by Key Wane (whose recent credits include hits for Drake and Big Sean). Sweet Da Kid’s mentor Salaam Remi contributes lilting production for the introspective “When I Blow.” Following the project’s self titled piano laden anthem, the EP concludes with, “Don’t Forget The Name,” an experimental and off-kilter track that has become Sweet Da Kid’s calling card as he drops references to Freaks and Geeks while casting himself as the “thug Robin Hood.” Consider the Your Mother’s Other Son EP as your official introduction to the man behind the ski-mask.
