The Kid Daytona Interview

In 2006, The Kid Daytona brokeout nationally by releasing his mixtape "A Tribe Called Fresh." From there, self-motivation and a steady grind saw him make the transiton from being a newcomer, to carving out his own space and own lane. One thing you notice about The Kid's music, is that he's not like other rappers, NYC or otherwise. His music contains all the elements of classic M.C., while having a fresh voice and perspective. 2010 saw Daytona align his brand with the cutting edge fashions of the popular clothing company LIFTED RESEARCH GROUP (L-R-G). With this unique partership, Daytona was placed in high-art adverstisements, including serving as a marquee model in their 2011 Spring Collection. But no bigger payoff came as they collaborated on Daytona's best release to date, "The Interlude LP." Keeping the fan's best interests in my mind, a concept for a full body of work was born.  Taking subtle interludes from storied albums from the likes of Kanye West, Pete Rock, A Tribe Called Fresh and Dr. Dre, "The Interlude LP" saw itself placed on several "2010 Best Of..." lists as a result. We caught Daytona just as he was about to perform at Southpaw in Brooklyn, discussing L.R.G., going to High School with Jae Millz, appearing on 106 & Park, and more.
