There are only two sure things in life: death and Killa Kyleon putting it down for his hometown. (Avoiding taxes is easy, if you happen to be a corporate CEO or big-shot investor.) On My City, a freshly-minted street single off his forthcoming pre-album mixtape, the Southern stalwart pledges to keep rocking gold grills, rolling on chrome and engaging in other quintessentially Houstonian activities until he departs this mortal coil. Over GL Productions twinkling synths and trunk-rattling rhythm section, Kyleon is joined by a pair of prominent H-Town neighbors: Slim Thug and Kirko Bangz lend their agile flows to the record’s latter two-thirds. Whether you’re a resident of Killa’s city or simply admire it from afar, you can expect more quality street music on new street album Lean on Me, dropping June 19, as the prelude to currently-unscheduled full-length T.R.I.L.L.
