Friday Flex Meets K.Y at EAVA FM Studios Leicester

The Friday Flex show was honoured to welcome one of Leicester’s hottest UK Hip Hop artists K.Y.

Date: 19th April 2013

K.Y [pronounced Kay Wy not Kie] discussed how he started writing music at the age of 12. He also discussed how much he enjoyed playing football, however decided to pursue a music career as this was what he loved the most.

Releasing music and mix tapes on a regular basis makes K.Y one of the busiest artists from Leicester. His latest mix tape ‘MIDM’ is an absolute work of art, where K.Y displays his versatility as an artist. During the interview he was passionate about getting his message across that ALL Leicester artists should work together. This is something we at Friday Flex and EAVA FM believe in strongly.

K.Y also discussed his clothing line MIDM Clothing and his website www.kyofficial.com, which is where you can buy his t-shirts and other K.Y related material.

The freestyle that he dropped was exactly that, a FREE STYLE and K.Y just flowed with the tune and was impressive in his content and delivery.

The Friday Flex would like to thank K.Y for taking time out of his busy schedule to come in and speak to us. What was meant to be a 30 minute interview, ended up being 90 minutes in total. His energy and passion is infectious to say the least and he can only get bigger and better.

Below are extracts taken from the official K.Y biography, check out the video of the freestyle and the ‘Rapid Fire’ which will be up very soon:

K.Y hails from Leicester; he grew up listening to hip hop, garage and grime. K.Y began writing music at the age of 12.
