Konata Small Re-emerges With “Hold Some”
Konata Small formerly K-Nuff of Rhema Soul re-emerges with “Hold Some.” The track comes from his forthcoming debut solo album, Est. 1997 (RMG Amplify & Good City Music).
Hold Some opens up about his transition from being one third of a trio to becoming a solo artist. He says “Guess I was a problem now I ain’t, ‘Cause ain’t nobody checking me, Was standing in the middle of my circle, Now I’m standing alone, Man it’s deep.”
Konata also admits “Hold Some” was the first song he wrote in the studio alone with the intention of writing an album. "Sometimes, God wants us to be alone to get our attention just to show us that we are actually not alone,” he says. “‘Hold Some,’ was written during that type of season.”
Hold Some was produced by Al Cres, and buzzes with moog synths. The song features high energy synonymous to hip-hop and an action movie theme score.
Konata conveys his commitment to elevating hip hop’s lyrical content as he has already released three other singles from Est. 1997, “High Top Fade,” “Numbers” and “O Lawd.”
As a member of the acclaimed Christian hip-hop trio Rhema Soul, Konata released five albums between 2007 to 2013. Their last three sets, Fingerprints, Red, and Dope Beats, Good News Vol. 2, reached the Top 40 on Billboard’s Top Albums chart.
