Brownsville, Brooklyn rapper Ka dropped his latest album, Descendants Of Cain late last week continuing his ever-solid portfolio of independent releases. He’s been a staple of New York City’s underground hip-hop scene for the better part of a half-decade now, catching the attention of Earl Sweatshirt and captivating fans for his strong lyricism and deeply personal content. The full-length follows his 2018 effort Orpheus vs. the Sirens and takes inspiration from biblical Old Testament stories like Cain and Abel.

Ka daylights as a Brooklyn-based FDNY fire captain and usually passes out physical copies of his projects in-person in his neighborhood. Since he can’t do that with this project given the current coronavirus quarantines, he’s dropping off singles before the full-length goes live on traditional streaming platforms later this week. “Solitude of Enoch” is a self-produced offering with minimal, echoing guitar loops fitting perfectly with the subject matter: comparing America’s history of violence, especially in inner-city life, to brothers killing brothers like in the biblical Book of Genesis. The main story outlined here follows the first two sons of Adam and Eve fighting against one another with murderous results. In Genesis 4, Enoch is Cain’s son.

Ka raps, “It’s hard to say, every sentence is pain/ Brothers killing brothers, descendants of Cain/ Props if getting knocked, and no mentioning names/ Had to steel, all that time I spent in the flame.” His first verse is hard-hitting and not a single syllable is wasted — this is the type of song that demands multiple listens and you’ll find a new allusion hidden beneath the surface each time. “Got to be in grace first to fall from it/ That money chased birthed the full summit/ Was wasteful as big eyes and a small stomach/ Funny used to call my friends money, I lost hundreds.”

Listen to the full track above. You can support Ka and purchase his latest album Descendants Of Cain via his official website. The project will arrive on streaming platforms Thursday, May 7. In more music news, Caleb Giles delivered a new introspective and soulful single titled “Diamonds.”
