The Legacy Of K1 Is Celebrated With Posthumous Track "Tomorrow" With KKEDA

November 23, 2022

News has been shared that Derby rapper K1 sadly passed away earlier this month following his battle with cancer. Keen to make sure his music lives on, his family and management team have released this moving posthumous track titled "Tomorrow" featuring vocals from KKEDA.

It's one of K1's more introspective offerings where he muses on the rapid changes of life and his unwavering hunger to continue chasing his dreams in the midst of heartbreak and disloyalty. KKEDA provides some comforting melodies in between K1's verses, effortlessly creating a memorable piece of music.

A statement on behalf of K1's family and management team reads: "Although we are still processing his loss, we are committed to continuing his legacy just as he intended. Music meant everything to K1 and our aim is to share it over the coming year with all the people who supported his dream. He wanted to release "Tomorrow" as his next single and at the time of filming, K1 suggested using a double as he wasn't well enough to shoot the video. We hope you enjoy the new music as much as we do and from the bottom of our hearts, we can't thank you enough for the support you've given him and all your kind words."

The Derby rapper initially landed on the scene just last year with his breakout single "Broken Hearted Crook", providing a vision of his raw lyricism, backed by a mellow trap beat. Since then he had an incredible run of releases, dropping a number of hard-hitting tracks like "Toxic Veins" and "HB Freestyle".

Prior to his passing he also completed a debut album which he had planned to release early next year but his team is set on uplifting his legacy and honouring his dedication to his craft by sharing these releases with the world.

"Tomorrow" features some visuals with a number of K1's close friends and family which you can watch below.
