Kid X secures a partnership with a local sneaker brand. Outside of music, Kid X was one of the few South African rappers who made big money moves while keeping a low profile.
The rapper took a significant break from music as he helped out with the day-to-day running of former label ‘Rap Lyf’. Taking to Instagram, Kid X announced their partnership with a local sneaker brand in PTA Wear.
“I’m proud to announce an exciting co-lab with @pt_wearbrand. Introducing the KiD X™️ Booster Edition Ltd sneakers – quality, comfort and style meet hip hop in one awesome pair,” he wrote. The rapper had good things to come after becoming a father.
The rapper took the time to honor that moment with a brand new album that marked his return to music. ‘Father Of Zen’ is a 13-track album featuring South African musicians ranging from ‘Moozlie’ to ‘Boskasie’.
The rapper revealed in an interview with Pan African Music that his trip to Egypt refreshed his spirit. Kid X pointed out that the new energy and mindset made him come up with new ideas and it spawned the making of the Father Of Zen album.
“A lot has happened in those two years! But I think one of the most notable turning points was when I took a trip to Egypt. This trip has just changed a lot. It broadened my perspective, it changed my world,” he said.
He added; “I felt like I had tapped into a deeper level of myself and needed to release new music to express that new energy.”
