This shit right here… Kami de Chukwu is from Chicago and is affiliated with the cities up and coming hip-hop movement SaveMoney. A few days ago Kami released his first mixtape titled Light and it is very impressive, specially for a debut. Chukwu’s style is definitely unique as he experiments with different flows and beats throughout Light, and he pulls it all off flawlessly. On top of the diverse production on Light, it’s Kami’s lyrics that really caught my attention. His verse and delivery on “Red Rover”, along with a dope first verse from Brian Fresco and XXYYXX on the beat, has easily made it one of my favourite songs of the year. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, SaveMoney is no joke. If you’re still not familiar with this group of Chicago kids do yourself a favour and download the following; Vic Mensa – Straight Up, Chance The Rapper – 10 Day, Caleb James – Ground Up. Also be sure to check out our recent interview with Vic Mensa where he talks more on what SaveMoney is all about. I’ve included some of my favourite cuts off Light before the download link below. Enjoy.
