Austin, Texas rapper/producer Kydd Jones presents “Blink Away”, the Kydd & Keef-produced new single featuring Sean Price from GR33D, Kydd’s forthcoming album. Jones’ 2012 albums The Sounds In My Head 2 (link) featured Yelawolf, Pac Div and Skyzoo, while The Righteous LP featured G.O.O.D. Music affiliate GLC (link). Jones has produced tracks for Kirko Bangz (listen to Progression) and Dee-1 (listen to “Pot Luck”). A five-time SXSW Showcase artist, Jones performed in 2012 at the XXL SXSW Showcase; at A3C 2012 in Atlanta for Red Bull Soundstage; in 2013 at Pop Montreal and FunFunFunFest; in 2014 at the 10th Anniversary A3C Festival and Brooklyn Hip-Hop Festival, the A3C Best In Show for NXNE 2014 and opened for Danny Brown for the Red Bull Sound Select in Austin during SXSW 2014. He has toured numerous times, including The Red Bull Skooled Tour, LRG Homegrown Tour, Yelawolf Texas Tour, Big Sean College Tour, Sneaker Pimps Tour, The Return of Screw York City Tour, The Cool Kids Southwest Tour, and The HipHopGods Tour. The Austin-American Statesman said that Jones “exemplifies Austin about as well as anyone out there. His style is laid back but clear-spoken. Funky and fun.” Jones says “I made the ‘Blink Away’ about gun awareness. I wasn’t trying to be political but its something we deal with everyday; good or bad, just don’t be naive. To put it in my point of view: life’s a blink away. I met up with Sean price in NY and he added his own cadence to the song to make it pop to another level also. When I was making the song, I grabbed the sample from another beat I had made four years earlier, and from there I just went to work.”
