Rolling – [Carlito]
By: Stacy Burse, Jr. The amount of talented rising Chicago rappers sometimes blows my mind. One upcoming Chicago rapper that stands out to me is Carlito (@carlitorapsnbjr). Carlito is a conscious/positive rapper, from the South Side of Chicago that grew up in the South Suburbs of Chicago. Fresh off of performing at the legendary Metro venue, Carlito releases his brand new track “Rolling”. In “Rolling”, Carlito shares his perspective and sheds light on the reality of profiling others which, to Carlito, means treating others poorly because of their race, how they dress, or how they look. He pours his emotions and perspective out over bouncy kicks and an ominous piano. Carlito’s team, S.N.B.JR. Records (@snbjrrecords), says he’s dropping songs monthly that shows his many diverse styles, yet consistent output. Make sure you subscribe to their YouTube to stay in tune! You can catch him at the Subterranean May 1st performing at a benefit showcase for the non-profit organization, Resilience. Check out “Rolling” below and let us know what you think in the comments.
