Most of today’s biggest SoundCloud rappers are from the States, but Canada is proving that there is more beyond its OVO and XO offerings. A young, up-and-coming artist by the name of KILLY is the North’s answer to the likes of Lil Uzi Vert, XXXTENTACION and Lil Peep. While the Toronto native’s most popular track at the moment is “Killamonjaro,” which has racked up over half a million views on SoundCloud (and 1.6 mil on YouTube) since its release four months ago, his latest song/video for “Distance” has accumulated nearly 100 thousand views in less than 24 hours since the drop.

KILLY delivers catchy melodies over a synth-laced instrumental produced by 100tones. The visual, directed by limitedvision, finds the rapper hanging around Vancouver’s BC Place, Gastown and other areas; scenes from Dragon Ball Z are interweaved between some of the shots. Watch the music video above and stay tuned for more from the up-and-coming rapper.
