Hiphop duo KIMOXAVI have released their second EP ‘Hold Up’ as well as the title track’s music video of the same name.
KIMOXAVI are producer/rapper Ray Hill and rapper Fatal. The two debuted in February with the mini album ‘27%‘.
With Ray Hill at the center of the production process of their second EP ‘Hold Up‘, KIMOXAVI is showing that they are self-sufficient by writing, composing, recording, mixing, and mastering their own music, proving that they are truly self-made.
In February, the duo went to London to shoot the music video of their title track ‘Hold Up’ with the support of a local video director and staff. The duo’s goal was to spread a powerful and inspiring message on the web against racism. Their campaign is called “#flashlightchallenge” and says that “in the dark we’re all the same,” “stand up against racism.” They also did a homage to Black Eyed Peas’ ‘Where Is the Love?’ music video by going all around London to distribute #flashlightchallenge flyers. More information about the campaign can be found on their official website.
