Fast-rising Atlanta spitter Kal-L and Queens production juggernaut Prof.Logik teamed up to drop a collaborative EP last week. Titled Stellar Enigma, the free (via Bandcamp) release features seven tracks of Logik’s cinematic, big-picture beats laced with Kal-L’s dynamic delivery.
No Dirty South mumbler, Kal-L has a frenetic, enunciated flow that invites comparison to classic East Coast MCs like Big L, with periodic shades of a young, hungry Talib Kweli. The production alternately slaps and tickles, alternating bombastic boom-bap (“Out The Box”) with subtle, glitchy aural massage (“Vercetti Estates”) for a slick EP warranting way more than a cursory listen.
