Paying homage to the Chicago legend Frankie Knuckles, producers Mulatto and Cangelosi linked up for a 9-and-a-half minute house mix known as Grand Prix. The project takes inspiration from the race track and feels like driving a fast car after midnight. Don’t sleep. Get on your feet.
One of my favorite Chicago rappers to keep an eye out for is Qari. Formerly of the now defunct Hurt Everybody, Qari has spent 2017 stepping out on his own. He started the year with Space Jam, a joint EP with producer Mulatto, and now the two are back with the single “Revenge”. It’s the lead single for Qari’s upcoming EP, one that is right around the corner.
