Like many of the best rappers in the game, new emcee Kovas hails from Brooklyn. But before you group him with any other artist, first take note of his unique sound. Taking cues from hip-hop, soul, and rock, he has created a new, hip-shaking number. The self-produced song incorporates elements from his Latin-African heritage, including an Arabic-sounding violin that decorates the wavy synth beat. Kovas spits nimbly about being so fly that he has to Wax On, Wax Off, a phrase made famous by Mr. Miyagi in Karate Kid, but used here to define the swag of his custom clothes and rides. The song has proven to be a hot commodity, as it is featured on both Kovas’ new EP, Reagan Babies, and the soundtrack for Madden NFL ’09.
