An experimental hip-hop artist hailing from San Francisco, California, Kai Straw introduces his left-of-center style to Boothgoers with American Cotton, a standout cut off his latest project. Here, Zay‘s subtly driving bell-arpeggio boardwork sets the stage for frenetic bars that find Kai chronicling his nonstop grind and fantasizing about the future fruits of his labors: an apartment overlooking NYC’s Central Park, “a chick with an ass like a peach from my orchard in Florida,” luxury whips for him and his father… and the list goes on. Feeling it? You can find this hustle anthem and many more quality cuts on Straw’s Kaleidoscope EP, available online as of last Wednesday.
