Thumbstopper: Tkay Maidza pays tribute in ‘Kim’

Words: Dylan Murphy

Stop scrolling – Thumbstopper is the must listen to song of the day. Today we have a new video from Tkay Maidza celebrating all the Kims: Kim Kardashian, Kim Possible and Lil Kim.

Raised in Australia by way of Zimbabwe, Tkay Maidza’s borderless brand of rap music has become fully realised in recent years. Now, she’s taken her expansive, blockbuster approach to the new video for ‘Kim‘.

Recruiting Georgia native Yung Baby Tate, it sees Tkay pay homage to all the great Kims in the world: Kim Kardashian, Kim Possible and Lil Kim. Fluttered throughout the sea of references is a tribute to ‘Kanye’s Bound 2

“The idea for the song came from Kim Possible, an iconic figure from my childhood—she always came out on top,” Maidza said.

“I wanted to make a song to remind those who question me that I will always figure it out. And once we started planning the video, we had the idea to add iconic moments from other famous Kims in my lifetime.”
