KAMI is member of Chicago’s Savemoney collective and one half of Leather Curduroys with fellow Savemoney representative Joey Purp. He’s not the most well known of the crew, but he may be the most versatile. KAMI is prepping a solo album for next year that will be one-half rap and one-half indie pop called Just Like The Movies. An early taste of the rap half comes in the Vic Mensa-assisted “Right Now.” It’s a low-end grumbler balanced by bright 8-bit-like synths with KAMI drifting on the spectrum of rapping and singing and Mensa turning in one of his best verses in a while. Seems like KAMI will continue the incredible Chicago hip-hop boom into 2017. Check out “Right Now” below along with the indie pop-leaning lead single “Home Movies.”
Just Like The Movies is expected some time next year.
