Kalae All Day
Something to listen to while you riding along in the car, something to bump in the ride, sip something to it.
This album is many things to many people. This is what Hiphop can be when pushed beyond comfortable parameters. This 22 year old emcee and singer, from Harlem has created a unique artistic space for herself. Hiphop has always been influenced by many genres and it is clear that Kalae All Day is too. With sounds reminiscent of E Badu, Pharcyde, Esterho, disco and the old boom bap. Just the kind of thing a record company will fuck up. Her freshman release entitled afromatikneohippierock* solemuzik has ten solid tracks filled with that goodie, each one an individual experience. This album has been compared to Mos Def’s sophmore album, The New Danger in recognition of the genre blending.
Having listened to alot of Hiphop in my day I can say without hesitation a fair number of independent emcees with strong verbal skills are plagued by weak production. There is none of that here. So allow me to shout out her executive producer, Princess Superstar for being, talented and gracious enough to provide tracks worthy of her lyrical finesse and individual voice.
In addition to this having this hot album under her belt she is concurrently working on releasing a mixtape, material for her new album and a line of accessories, not only is her album many things to many people but she is too.
