Music Releases




(Feat. Sanjana Shah)

First created and written back in 2019, Godspeed has been around for quite some time. On this record, I reflect upon my journey through the lens of personal hardships, struggles, lessons, and growth over the past years. The song and the lyrics give off a somewhat chill, yet raw, emotional, and authentic vibe. It builds upon my old-school Hip-Hop influences along with a tinge of Jazz thrown in the mix. The very gifted featured artist, Sanjana, makes her debut on this song. With a heartfelt tribute to my late grandma in the last verse, "Godspeed" is a passionate and soul-filled re-telling of my experiences, and an ode to the journey ahead.

Produced, Recorded, Mixed, Mastered, Designed, and Edited by Kay (Karan Panchal). Written by Kay (Karan Panchal) and Sanjana Shah.

"From witnessing your first studio session to the recent one, you've always had a different vibe and I always found it profound; lyrically and musically relaxing ❤️"
"Man! It's actually pretty good.
Haven't heard an English rapper this good since a long time. I thought Tyler was rapping on that. I don't know who you are but I like this one. Keep it up!"
"Just heard I Will. Fire bro. Super impressed! Big up man, just keep grinding and putting out good content 🔥"
"You don’t sound like an Indian rapper, bro. You sound just like an international rapper. You will shine bro, never give up!"
"This is what I love, when you just do you! Unadulterated, immaculate, 100% "YOU" in the form of music. Got grind with Passion, Kudos Kay! Lovely music! Soulful; loved every second of it."
"You are gifted bro! KEEP FREAKING GOING!! DO NOT STOP! The fact that you rap and produce all at once is huge!! And your records are quality!! 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙏🏼"
"I've heard a lot of other rappers out there, but, man you're too international for this shit. I couldn't contain my excitement when I first heard Token Of Dopeness. The lyrics, the flow, everything in it, and on top of that your voice. I made every person around me listen to that. They went crazy man! I swear I'm not even makin this up."
