Following a successful year last year, hip hop artist Kidd Clazzic is back in the headlines, having launched a single with international poet, singer, dancer and motivational speaker Ali.

The latest offering titled $4$, or Dollar For Dollar, was a collaboration the pair created when Ali visited earlier this year. 

“It was an instant synergy,” Kidd Clazzic explained. “Through the encouragement of PlayList Management we were able to come together. We spoke about music, talked about life and realized we had similar ideas about music. It was just fate that we were able to get into the studio and put that on record.”

The single was produced by Bermudian producer Derek G, recorded at IVibes Studios, with reggae artist Elektric on the chorus. The song has been selected in the 2014 Beachfest Crown Song Competition (see the video below) and has garnered favourable reviews and DJ/Club play internationally in Los Angeles. This summer, Kidd Clazzic will be working on music videos, recording new music and preparing for several upcoming performances throughout 2014.
