Kami De Chukwu has sounded irreparably hungry since the fateful 1:00 mark on “Savior.” Listen for yourselves; the second the soul-piano chords slide in, filling the mood with thought-provoking colors, Kami is squeaking out rhymes that sound naturally conflicting with a combination of humility and awakened agitation. A similar binary can be heard on his latest appropriately-titled “Eat,” where we hear the Chicagoan youngster’s wiry rap lines unravel to reveal a story of humble beginnings, unwanted experience, and resentful resilience. The arresting part of these internet bouncing SaveMoney individuals is that a simple line is drenched with the uniquely sobering realities that they’re surrounded with. “Eat” is a telling depiction of Kami’s ascension, and entendre-filled quartets show his experience and wit: “duck your head when you see pole-ice [police]/ the blue lights sure do shine bright/ and them cuffs so tight! / it must be something in your genes (jeans).” So though it may only be just 2 minutes long, Kami’s latest should quiet any naysayers and prepare us all for whatever he has up his sleeves next. Enjoy below.
