St. Louis vocalist/producer Sean Deaux linked with Chicago vocalist/producer Qari for “Persona”. With Deauxva behind the boards, the two trade hazy, atmospheric lines. It sounds like slow motion in a strip club.
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.
Windy City producer Mulatto Beats let loose one hell of a producer album earlier this summer. Featuring a plethora of talented rappers (Lucki, Mick Jenkins, Warhol.ss, Qari, Alex Wiley, Trapo), the ten song project sounds like a cloud of smoke on a hot summer day. The production does not disappoint and all of the guests do their thing. Hopefully we get an instrumental version of this down the road. Spin this one on repeat until it gets cold again.
