Toronto flag-waver Rich Kidd is well-known for his interactive, hype-as-hell live shows. So when he began recording tracks for his upcoming In My Opinion mixtape, he wanted at least one tune to reflect how he engages an audience. "Whenever I perform, I always ask the crowd to give me a "Bom Bom" with a gun finger in the air," he tells Hive. "Then I figured: why not turn my crowd chants into a song?" The self-produced "Can I Get a [Bom Bom]" isn't as urgent as you might expect, though that allows it to live in two distinctive worlds. On the record, it's a laid-back, albeit bass-y, burner full of shit-talking. And in concert? Well, you can bet that Kidd gets a massive response with that hook.
In My Opinion is due out April 16.
