Killval drops his new single “Quitter.” The track finds the Richmond rapper displaying his confidence and ability to push through any issues that arise and Killval shares “‘But I ain’t no quitter.I work hard to achieve my goals. If I put my mind to it, I’m set on getting it done. Never give up on your dreams. Keep it going, you’ll eventually make it a reality.” The song was produced by Nico Baran (The Kid Laroi, Internet Money, Lil Tecca) and Ryan Bevolo (Trevor Daniel, Lil Tecca, Bernard Jabs, Ryster).
“Quitter” follows “Space Ranger” and “Friends.” Killval burst onto the scene in 2020 with the release of his first single “So Long” which generated almost 30 million streams across all platforms, and followed that in November with his debut EP Romance For Madness.
Killval is Jayshawn Kylek Rowland. The rapper was born and raised in Richmond, VA and grew up listening to a mix of rock (Smashing Pumpkins, Arctic Monkeys, Nirvana) and hip hop (Travis Scott, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent). It was the 2015 release of Lil Uzi Vert’s Luv Is Rage that prompted Rowald into making his own music. With an eye towards creating a more “underground” sound he created the moniker Killval and quickly started releasing tracks on Soundcloud. Best friend and well-known Internet Money producer Nick Mira (Juice Wrld, Lil Tecca, Iann Dior) began showing Killval beats, kickstarting his genre-bending career highlighting his knack for freestyling to create stories of heartbreak, understanding life and “good vibes.”
