Legendary Queens battle rapper DNA has just added another string to his bow with the inclusion of his new single “Violent Ken” on the official Street Fighter 6 soundtrack.
The acclaimed lyricist shared the good news on his social media Monday (September 18). He posted the track’s cover art and announced the song will debut on October 6 as part of Capcom’s collab with NERDS Clothing and platinum record-selling producers Steel Sessions to celebrate Hip-Hop 50.
The project also tracks features from Benny the Butcher/Black Soprano Family, Royce da 5’9″, Dave East, Papoose, Sheek Louch, Styles P, Grafh, Smoke DZA, Charlie Clips and more.
DNA recently ran into West Coast rapper Symba, who credited the freestyle specialist for forcing him to up his game.
“What DNA don’t know is, every time I go do a freestyle at the radio,” Symba began, “it’s three people I watch. Tsu Surf, Murda Mook and DNA.”
Symba continued, telling DNA, “The reason I watch them n##### is cause’ that’s the pure art of raps. That’s the pure art of saying s### that the culture want to hear. I owe it to him because my freestyles would never go viral without watching his.”
