KAI is a young upcoming artist from Chicago whose music I became a fan of a couple of years back when he dropped a record called “Brookfield Zoo”. That song itself and the EP that it was a part of was fantastic, so I’ve kept a close tab on Kai’s music since that point. Just the other day, Kai released a new offering called “Akeelah and The Bee”, and it’s been in heavy rotation on my Spotify since its release. One aspect of Kai’s music that he really excels with is his beat selection, he always seems to have the cleanest + most soothing instrumentals, and this track is a great example of that. Of course, Kai’s rapping ability over these instrumentals is what brings it all together, he provided some great flows with a confident delivery here, making for an all-around great offering.
