Video: Kalan.FrFr – “Look At Me“
The Roc Nation Signee Shares a Cinematic Clip for the Emphatic Opening Track from His New Project TwoFr 2
“On the West Coast, Kalan has emerged as the premier vocalist in L.A.’s thriving street rap scene, closer in comparison to Ty Dolla $ign than OhGeesy…but Kalan proves he can go bar for bar with L.A.’s best.” – Pitchfork
“Don’t be fooled by Kalan.frfr. Just because he often uses his warm R&B melody over lush piano keys doesn’t mean he’s making bright-eyed love songs…When you’re talking about L.A.’s new wave of sh*t-talking, designer-obsessed rappers, Kalan.frfr should be included. He just happens to sing.” – Pitchfork
“Upon meeting YG, Kalan.frfr was honored that the hip-hop superstar was a fan of his music.” – HYPEBEAST
“Kalan.Frfr has been a part of an exciting new wave of LA rap that includes artists like himself, Shoreline Mafia, 1TakeJay, and the currently incarcerated cult favourites Drakeo the Ruler & 03 Greedo. Unlike most of the artists on that list, Kalan’s music retains a consistently celebratory vibe with an emphasis on party bangers. It’s certainly something he does well.” –HotNewHipHop

Kalan.FrFr‘s music demands to be played in the whip, preferably a convertible with the top down and a gentle breeze blowing in from the ocean. Traveling from the Pacific to the Atlantic in his latest music video, the L.A. native shares “Look At Me.” The opening track on his new project TwoFr 2, “Look At Me” is Kalan’s mission statement, a breezy and confident riders anthem, in which the 25-year-old artist marvels at how far he’s come and mourns the grandmother who always believed in him: “Granny look at me/I know you smile at me when I see the clouds move/I know you proud of me.” In the video, directed by Kalan’s frequent collaborator Blayr, Kalan enjoys a vacation in Miami, as he rides his jetski through Biscayne Bay and poses with his shiny sports car (colored to match Miami’s pastel color palette). The video also includes a montage of career highlights from Kalan, including performances at Rolling Loud and more.
Spanning 13 tracks, TwoFr 2 is an excellent showcase of what helps the Compton native standout in a crowded hometown scene, namely his silky, rhythmic croon and his sharp sense of songcraft. The new project is home to “Scoring,“ which earned airtime during a Los Angeles Lakers NBA playoff game in the Fall and is currently charting at #29 on urban radio, “Get In,” a lumbering, piano-heavy banger with an appearance from Stunna 4 Vegas, and “No Love” ft. Mozzy, which has a music video that pays tribute to Paid In Full, one of Kalan’s favorite films. The sequel to Kalan’s breakout 2018 tape TwoFr, TwoFr 2 takes the newly-minted Roc Nation signee’s artistry to a new level, complementing his raunchy love songs with introspection and hard-earned wisdom. Featuring production from Cypress Moreno, Bankroll Got It, and more, TwoFr 2 is available everywhere via First Class Entertainment/Roc Nation.
A major figure in Los Angeles’ stacked rap scene, recently crashing the Top 10 of Billboard’s Emerging L.A. Artists chart, Kalan.FrFr earned accolades and co-signs for his breezy melodies and hard-hitting bars. In recent months, the artist’s singular alchemy caught the attention of L.A. rap superstar YG, who hopped on the remix for Kalan’s hard-hitting “Right Wit It” in 2020. A vocalist with many dimensions, the artist earned praise from Pitchfork in 2019 for his pure rapping ability on his fan-favorite “Hot N Ready (Freestyle)“. With TwoFr 2, Kalan solidifies his unique position on the West Coast scene, and builds even more anticipation about great things to come.
