[Feature] Don’t Sleep On Me: KelFrancisco

Chicago has always had a wide range of different styles when it comes to hip-hop, artists like Kanye West, Common, Paypa, Twista, Chief Keef, Lupe Fiasco and Chance The Rapper to name a few. In a city with so much culture, the broads waves of sounds coming from Chicago have an influence in today’s music culture heavily, which opens to door for us all to experience the new generation of music surfacing throughout the city. Echoing throughout the city, KelFrancisco gives reassurance that the variety of great music coming from Chicago is something to be remembered and closely watched.

Emerging onto the scene just over a year ago, KelFrancisco has been releasing a slew of tracks leading up to his upcoming project. With a style heavily influenced by Chicago’s old school sounds, KelFrancisco aims to bring that feel good retro sound with a Chi-Town twist into today’s time, which admittedly there is a ton of variety when it comes t hip-hop music. With tracks already being played in stations in Nashville, Tennessee and a bright future ahead of him, KelFrancisco continues to make exquisite music that anyone who is a fan of the genre can vibe to. From making beats, to remixing tracks and constantly putting out original material, KelFrancisco is definitely someone you want to keep in your radar. Listed below are a few reasons why I believe this.
