Sidewalk Kal aka Kal The God – “Kal The God” (Prod. by Big General)

Kal re-emerges with a new solo cut, produced by Big General over a Little Dragon sample flip.  The name may have changed for this Impolite Society wordsmith, but clearly the modus operandi has not: dope rhymes over dope beats.

Netherfriends – “Kind Of Buzzed Vol. 2: Black Belt Freestyle” feat . Swords The Ronin

Last month, Netherfriends dropped Volume 1 of his “Kind of Buzzed” series for our June podcast.  Volume 2 features Swords the Ronin (Second City Citizens) freestyling over improvised beats, live at Cafe Mustache.  Peep the video, and grab the track below.

In the spirit of Miles Davis’ Kind Of Blue, Netherfriends put together “Kind Of Buzzed”- a series of improvised beats, cooked up fresh on the spot, and garnished with the freestyles of different Chicago Hip Hop artists.
