So this came out today and although we (Royal, The) haven’t had a chance to hear it yet, 206UP.COM is super-gassed over the drop because it’s been a minute since we’ve heard from Ka.lil, one of the most important musical components of this here still-budding experiment in Town bloggery.
As Khingz on his 2009 From Slaveships to Spaceships, the do-or-die South End representative bridged gaps between hardcore street hood and sensitive sci-fi nerd, thereby blasting sets of preconceived notions to smithereens. FStS fit somewhere between DPG’s Dogg Food and Junot Diaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, a spectrum that, when examined more critically and with a fully open heart, is not nearly as broad as we’re led to believe.
Anyway, Ka.lil is the shit, and I’m guessing his new album is, too. Go here or listen below if you need to ask somebody.
