Chicaco’s very own Kidd Kenn closed out the month of June with his brand new single, “Want Not A Need.” Today (July 7), he makes his return to share the official music video, a Jon Vulpine-directed clip that serves all the attitude and confidence the song embodies. Equipped with a feature from Baby Tate, the bouncy track opens up with the unmistakable boom of Beethoven’s “Symphony No. 5” before Kidd Kenn and Tate come in with their modern twist:
Yeah, I woke up in the Hills with a view (With a view) hoppin’ out the Benz with the crew (With the crew)/ Different brands, different bags, different shoes (Uh huh), all these different whips, different cities, different boos (Brr brr)/ Remember you a want not a need (Uh huh), a want not a need (Uh huh)
A want not a need (Uh huh), a want not a need, chillin’ by the palm trees countin’ blues and the greens (Stop playin’)/ Remember you will always be a want not a need, yo, I got him on his knees (Yeah)/ I got him beggin’, ‘Please’ I pull up to the trap for your n***a to give me cheese (Stop playin’)/ He give me a couple thousand just for me to come and tease
Prior to this, Kidd Kenn dropped off his Celebrating Pride: Kidd Kenn EP at the top of the month. That project boasted guest appearances from Rico Nasty, Cupcakke, and Saucy Santana across six total party-ready anthems. Baby Tate shared her two-song pack “Dancing Queen/Yasss Queen” back in April. Her last full-length body of work was 2020’s After The Rain, which eventually wound up getting a deluxe upgrade last year.
