In essence, this project captures a slice of life in London. Its warm energies, unapologetically raw and honest verses, and personable cadences make for a comprehensive image of the trials and tribulations that Bakar encounters on a daily basis, and by staying true to the home that formed him into the person he is today, Badkid comes across as one of the most authentic releases of 2018 as of yet.
The sounds range from aggressive, rock-inspired accounts of pure life to smooth, key-led snapshots of the happy times that the young artist has encountered, but no matter what direction the album is taken, it always returns to its North London roots. Bakar is a versatile gem in a world of music where individuality resonates with fans, and he’s about to something special, just trust me.
