Kaleb - 'Blac Lion Vol. 2' + "Mother Fate" Music Video


Remember when NY had a distinct sound? Black Moon, Heltah Skeltah, Sunz of Man and others like them, while totally different in their approach to Rap music, still had shine on major radio stations. These days, you only hear this brand of music in some commercial filled retro hour on the radio. NY's sound has lost it's unique flair and radio is dominated by the same sounds over and over.

Enter Kaleb. A blast from the past ... in the future. He is classic beyond his years and has captured a sound and groove from a time when he, probably, was just a toddler. What's more, he's not from New York City! He's originally from Minneapolis, MN and now spreading his brand of music from the state capital Albany, NY. Whoa.

Check the video below for "Mother Fate" from the 'Blac Lion Vol. 2' mixtape. The project released in October of last year so I'm late on the take but it's a strong project. Much more focused than the most current 'Ready for the Industry Vol. 1' mixtape. Though I place it a distant second to 'Blac Lion Vol. 2', I understand it's purpose.

Kaleb is extremely talented. The lyrical content is impressive and the sonic experience is a real throwback. If you love the "Golden Era" of Hip-Hop like I do, then you will greatly enjoy Kaleb's sound. Tune in...
