Stream: “Look At The Time”
Ones To Watch / Soundcloud

Hailing from Irving, Texas, love-sadKiD is a prolific 16-year-old rapper (real name Ben McGibboney) — A lovestoned lyricist and a poet with a microphone. They have released a plethora of solo singles as well as two collaborative EPs with Dahm. The high school student is currently working on various EPs as well as a follow-up to their 2017 self-titled debut tape. With a confessional, sincere sound and an incredible ear for production (often leaning lofi), the Dream Easy and Cozy Collective affiliate is an artist best enjoyed with a side of sunshine.

“Look At The Time,” a chilling track about one of love-sadKiD’s troublesome past relationships. love-sadKiD suggests that their ex couldn’t be close to what they needed or wanted so their once-undeniably strong connection eventually went adrift and was never resuscitated. With charming elements of lo-fi, “Look At The Time” will make you join love-sadKiD in reflecting on your own past romantic partners and realizing how much you’ve grown since removing yourself from those situations.

love-sadKiD exclusively shared with Ones To Watch:

“I wrote this song about an ex of mine whom I had a rather contentious relationship with. I wrote the hook on it a few months ago and based it on a text I sent her about not being childish anymore.”

You can catch love-sadKiD on tour with Oliver Tree and at Young Love with Cuco
