King’s Cvstle and Paradox Make A Statement with “F*** the System”

King’s Cvstle are back with a new release, controversial as ever but as always they’ve provided us with some thought provoking music. This time they’ve collaborated with Paradox, a growing name in London’s hip-hop music scene.

This distinctly poignant and powerful new single, aptly titled ‘Fuck The System’, drives with simplicity and grit intertwined. It offers only the most hard-hitting and revealing bars, alongside the quickly memorable nature of a fierce yet cleverly unadorned musical backdrop. Achieving over 4K streams in it’s first 2 weeks of release, the highly anticipated music video, debuting with the London Based Record Label & Music Platform Loudhouse on 01/09/20, is set to receive the respect it deserves.

The self-produced single, crafted by Kings Cvstle’s own Daniel King, is the duo’s first collaborative project with another rapper. Their innate passion for precision and intention selects only the finest bars and beats to release, and this single speaks volumes on behalf of the dedication, talent and drive that Paradox was able to pair with the duo’s own.

Driving with a simple yet striking soundscape, a minimalist and mellow yet dark set-up, the single instantly draws your focus towards the vocals – the lyrics, the passion and angst at the heart of the performances. Detailing the tumultuous journey of life itself, as well as the struggle to build a career in music, the track proves increasingly relevant as it makes its way through a near four-minute lifespan. In every case, the detail and intensity presented by each rapper during the verses, is resolved effortlessly with the outcry and rejection of leadership in a gripping yet simplistic hook.

Vocalised by both artists, the hook displays solidarity in the face of adversity, being reintroduced just enough times to swiftly become the anthem that 2020 needs. It’s addictive rhythm yet simplistic rhyme scheme contrasts smartly with the story-telling and performative freedom found elsewhere in the track, resulting in a moment that categorically seeks to bring music fans together to share in the sentiment.

Combine these qualities with an equally simple, dark yet pristinely captured visual story-line, which details the increasingly tumultuous nature of modern life and the traumatic realities that take place on our very streets, and the whole thing screams inequality, rebellion, and motivation all at once. The intensity rises throughout, and the release proves increasingly engaging in the process.

Without a doubt, as and when the live scene returns, both Kings Cvstle and Paradox will be at forefront of the UK’s sharpest hip hop events, and this single, being quite possibly their most concise and recognisable, will capture the crowd’s attention with ease.
