Bronx-rapper Kel$z Luchie is back with his new single and video for “Torch” available today via Entertainment One (eOne). Produced by Filthynyer, “Torch” is the follow up to his recently released singles “GG” and “Uzi,” with the videos both garnering over 680K views on YouTube collectively.
Born and raised on the west side of the Bronx on Heath Avenue (Kingsbridge), the 25-year-old Dominican & Columbian rapper credits his sound to the influences all around him.Â â€œBeing outside every day is mainly where I get my inspiration from. I have much more to talk about in my music.”Â He continues, â€œI grew up in a musical household â€“ my father is a musician and my older brother was always listening to rap, so these influences made me appreciate music at a young age.Â Â Kel$Zâ€™s unique New York sound was cemented with the release of countless singles and freestyles, plus his 2017 albumÂ Real FakeÂ and 2018â€™sÂ 456.
In early 2020, he released the EP Y2K Joints via Soundcloud. The 4-track freestyle EP featured short freestyles over the following instrumentals: Sisqoâ€™s â€œThong Songâ€; Fabolousâ€™ â€œYoung’n (Holla Back)â€; Nellyâ€™s â€œHot In Herreâ€; and Jagged Edge’s â€œWhere the Party At.â€ He plans to release a longer version with additional freestyles a little later this year. But first, Kel$z is working on an EP to be released shortly.
