Gyyps’s ‘Killafornia’

A Fun-Loving Rapper to Keep an Eye On


Gyyps is the fun-loving rapper hip-hop needs. His most recent album, Killafornia, released on June 2, follows his time spent living in Los Angeles with fellow rapper Felly. While Gyyps gained instant popularity following the release of his 2015 EP, Canoga Park, this project epitomizes his unique sound. He capitalizes on a branch of hip-hop that incorporates breezy lyrics, voice manipulation, captivating instrumentals, and an attitude of jurisdiction. In the opening track, “Something in the Water,” Gyyps showcases his vocal talent, rapping over a slow, atmospheric melody. On “Can’t Stop Me,” his lyrics and beats leap out of your speakers, setting the mood for Killafornia’s balance between impassioned and forceful. The track “Single for the Summer,” featuring friends Felly and Trip Carter, will certainly find a spot on your summer playlist. Gyyps’s talents for creation and lyricism flow through the entirety of Killafornia.
