Kudos The Kid Lead The Way For This Tribute To Beat ‘Em Ups


Charged with creating a theme song for the Games Arts And Music Show, Kudos The Kid teams up with other local talent to create ‘Vs’. A tribute to beat ’em ups.

Alongside local emcees – Willie Evans Jr, Arsun F!st, & TunK – Kudos The Kid were asked to create a theme tune for this year’s Games Arts And Music Show in Jacksonville, Fl.

Putting their heads together the four contributors took four classic beat ’em up games as inspiration. Each taking a verse to rap about Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Killer Instinct and Tekken respectively. The result is ‘Vs’ a catchy four minutes forty seconds with game references and clever samples to satiate any beat ’em up / Hip-Hop fan.

The collective have written and recorded the track ahead of the Games Arts And Music show (GAAM for short) where they will combine forces once more to perform the track live. The event takes place on Saturday the 13th August.
