Kino Beats and 24HRS hit the jackpot, with “24HR Casino.”

I’ve been familiar with 24hrs for years, as his style has mixed well into my library full of melodic hip-hop and R&B that I’ve grown throughout the last decade. I hadn’t heard much of him recently, however, so when I saw he’d released a new project titled 24HR Casino in collaboration with Virginia producer Kino Beats, I had to roll the dice.

It didn’t disappoint.

The chemistry between producer and artist is palpable in this project, as Kino’s beautiful production lays a perfect foundation for 24hrs’ melodic, airy voice that’s always been gravitational to me, personally. The two have worked as collaborators and grown as friends while their careers have simultaneously developed, and you can feel that realness and genuine connection in the work produced.

Kino’s consistently beautiful work has earned him placements with superstars like Curren$y, Duke Duece, Lil Uzi Vert, and Dej Loaf. Undoubtedly, this project will only further catapult him into the mainstream industry, and I’m excited to see his name continue to balloon.

24hrs has had his fair share of industry success, best-known for frequent collabs with Wiz Khalifa, Ty Dolla, and MadeinTYO. With a solid, top-to-bottom project such as this, I expect that success to continue and for his name to further grow beyond his foundational fanbase.

After multiple listens, my favorite joints on the project have to be “MGM” and “Pick You Up,” though I’m sure additional favorites will spring up as I continue to listen more.
