For underground rappers and others who have always had to struggle for funds, the Peaceful feeling of financial security can be a little disconcerting at first. Such was undoubtedly the case for Calez but, judging by his latest single, the Windy City representative is quickly getting accustomed to his newfound prosperity. As usual, the artist handles production as well as mic duties, crafting an atomspheric beat whose low-key vibe is only slightly undermined by the braying vocal sample he flips on the hook. The arguable highlight comes on the back, when he sits down at the keyboard to send us off with a disarmingly pretty solo. Peaceful is the first release off Calez’s Ceito LP, projected to drop in spring of 2014. Fans can watch our pages for further release details, as well as all the latest tunes.
