Songfacts®:

  • D-Block Europe is a South London collective primarily consisting of Young Adz and Dirtbike LB. They named themselves after the New York label D-Block.

    After forming in the early 2010's, D-Block Europe gradually accumulated a following with their material, which frequently contains explicit sexual content. The collective enjoyed their first chart success when they were featured on Yxng Bane's 2018 cut "Gucci Mane." That track peaked at #49 in the UK.
  • This is the lead single from D-Block Europe's debut mixtape. Its chorus finds Young Adz boasting that he is the "king of the kitchen."

    King up in that kitchen, I don't need no apron

    Adz is claiming he's such an expert chef, that he doesn't even need an apron to protect his clothing from spills. As the rest of the track is directed at an "amazing" girl who the rapper wants to "pull up in that spaceship," it's most likely to be some sort of innuendo.
