Chicago artists KAMI and Smoko Ono released their first single, “Reboot” off their upcoming collaborative project Very Slight due September 14th. Rolling Stone called the single a “swaggering, fast spitting number” and Uproxx called it a “hypnotic trap burner.” “The four artists keep it a Chi-town thing, trading fun verses over an atmospheric soundscape and thumping 808s.” Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
The video was directed by Cole Bennett and debuted on Lyrical Lemonade this morning. KAMI and Smoko Ono are part of the SAVEMONEY crew with KAMI making up one half of Leather Corduroy’s, his project with Joey Purp. He released his debut album, Just Like The Movies in 2017. FADER said “Kami has an explosive presence, his fiery flow fills up a track.” Throughout the landscape of musicians in the Chicago area, KAMI’s upbeat energy helps him produce some of the most interesting hip hop that is coming from the city. By blending elements from the roots of rap and hip hop, synth-driven new wave, and pop vocals, KAMI has been able to form a signature sound that resonates with audiences across all genres. Smoko Ono is well known for producing I Might Need Security by Chance The Rapper and U Mad by Vic Mensa. Smoko’s hard hitting beats have been a resident Chicago staple in the past years as he’s risen to prominence behind the boards of his Chicago rap contemporaries.
Very Slight, KAMI’s upcoming project in partnership with Smoko Ono is due out September 14th. Kami will appear at The North Coast Festival featuring DJ Snake, Miguel, Mura Masa and more on Sunday, September 2nd.
