Beneath the Surface: Jim Kahn

jim_kahn.jpg 

Welcome to the debut of Beneath the Surface, a new Nah Right feature where we’re going to be highlighting new, unsigned talent. Since we always keep it thorough over here, I thought it would only be right for the first post to go to some local talent thats on the radar right now.

I’ve known my man Jim Kahn since the glory days of the early 90’s when hip hop was in arguably it’s best creative stage, and when rap was about one thing and one thing only: lyrics. Me and Jim went to school high high school together and we’ve been students of hip hop since the cassette walkman days…you know back when you had that joint with no rewind button and the big dookey head phones.

Jim isn’t getting the first new artist honor just cuz he knows your boy though. This man’s flow is serious and his songwriting skills are bananas. I’m putting up two joints that you all need to get up on now, cuz when he’s bubbling in a couple months there may not be room on the bandwagon…nahimean?

Jim Kahn – Duck

Jim Kahn – Minute to Breath

If after these two joints you want more, you can click here and download Duck and Minute to Breath, plus 3 other tracks.

    Yo, I’m not even gonna lie – that shit just brought me back to the lyrical prowess of them mid-90’s cats. There couldn’t be a more appropriate article to follow this one – CRUNK SUCKS – about time somebody brought back this real, raw hip-hop shit that puts your mind in motion. Keep up the good work Kahn, looking forward to hear more…

    no hate, homie. just stating my opinion. Can’t be coming on stage looking like you work @ Sams Club as a stockboy. Seen his boots? Good grief, S. You know if you came to the block dressed like that, I’m choppin’ for 12 days straight.

  18. eskay Says:

    I hear you. The best part is I was talkin to Jim Kahn yesterday and he said “The funny thing is I used to pump gas”. Like you said on the Stray Shots post, 99% of dudes are trying to to get out of the everyday struggle. Jim is a perfect example.

  19. e-dubbs Says:

    S, you my dawgs you know this but I really did listen to dude with an open mind and dude is stiff as a two day old corpse. Really gotta work on his flowmanship. Get my dude AX on there, now thats a kid that is bringing heat.

  20. THE BAD GUY Says:

    WHEN I FIRST SAW ANOTHER WHITE GUY TRYIN TO SPIT I SAID TO MYSELF “HERE WE GO AGAIN”. BUT AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE TO RIP HIM APART I HAVE TO SAY HIS SHIT IS KIND OF CRAZY. I MEAN HE COULD USE SOME WORK BUT THE RAW IS THERE. ANYBODY CAN RHYME BUT NOT EVERYBODY CAN WRITE SONGS. I GOTTA GIVE HIM A PASS.

  21. Hoover Says:
