As his name implies, Kali represents Orange County, California. What sets him apart from other regional MCs, however, is a certain producer who lives approximately 2,800 miles away; Brooklyn’s Statik Selektah will be overseeing and producing most of Kali’s new album. So, how does this OC native fit over NYC production? Easy; Statik simply remembers his borough’s foremost hip hop icon, sampling Biggie‘s classic Going Back to Cali to create a cut called Cali Kali. If Kali’s opening chapter is this solid, expectations should be sky-high for his future – rest assured, the Booth will be supporting him every step of the way!
