Background

Black Card confirmed Aimin' and its release date to the public on 4 April 2018. At the same time, he also confirmed his debut album, Death Penalty.

Aimin' focuses on a different perspective for each of the five rappers, who are all aiming for something:

  • Black Card is new to the scene, and has managed to earn minor commercial success by being featured on "Successive" and releasing a mixtape. He is aiming for global recognition, proving that he will not be a one-hit wonder.
  • Missy Robins is hoping to get back on track after being completely irrelevant for several years.
  • Flavia has received a lot of media attention since she was signed to Favelopia in 2010, and wants to make sure she does not fall off anytime soon!
  • Tirade started his career as a profanity-laced hype man, but has since started to become a child-friendly pop artist. He is aiming for an in between line.
  • Kool Teazer began his career in the mid-2000s, and although he has still been releasing media since, his popularity level has decreased. He is hoping to get back to the level he was at a decade ago.

Music video

The music video for Aimin' was premiered on Channel AKA in the United Kingdom on 7 April 2018.
