Have a Listen: Citizen Kay - Manage
Citizen Kay has been killing it lately. His buzz has been snowballing since dropping his debut EP Yes! last March, and it now seems to be getting close to avalanche country. In the past two months, he has supported Earl Sweatshirt, Danny Brown and Run the Jewels on their three-headed Laneway sideshows, as well as opening for East Coast hip hop icons Public Enemy throughout their Australian tour.
Now, the kid from Canberra is ready to take the driver’s seat. To celebrate the release of his new single Manage, Citizen Kay has announced an Australian tour with fellow up-n-comer Tkay Maidza. The tour will kick off in Perth on the 3rd of May, and finish up on the 31st, as one of the first ever acts to grace the stage at the recently renovated Newtown Social Club.
Manage itself is a confident, promising single. Kay delivers with an almost Lupe-esque flow, allowing his narrative to pull along the track’s stuttering kick-snare and shimmering Gospel keys. With Manage, Citizen Kay has again demonstrated his rapidly developing ability and versatility as an artist. Keep an eye on this guy.

Manage will be available on iTunes from the 4th of April.
