ZICO’s Grown Ass Kid is finally here.

Grown Ass Kid is the South Korean rapper’s first release in two years following the end of his mandatory military service.

On the day of the EP release, he also dropped an apocalypse-themed music video for the title track “괴짜 (Freak).” This is the 4th EP from the artist, following 2020’s Random Box and his second official EP under his label, KOZ Entertainment.

The EP is composed of 5 tracks, with features from rapper-producer CHANGMO and Zior Park. According to the tracklist released by KOZ Entertainment, “Grown Ass Kid” has ZICO writing, composing, and arranging almost every track, with other featured artists or producers coming in to help out on specific songs.

Last week, ZICO premiered “Seoul Drift,” the first single and music video from the EP, which is set in Seoul in the near future.
