Kareem Kalokoh recently dropped his first project since 2015. “Congo” is chalked full of dark sounds and heavy hitting street anthems. Based out of Athens (Greece), 23 year old Kalokoh provides a cohesive aesthetic to match the sounds on the album. The 11 track project pegs two features; Athens’ Majin Cost, and one of my favorite artists Goon Des Garcons*, who continues to be popping up in all the right places.
My favorite track is the addicting single “Whip Game”, which is European rap to a tee and a song I haven’t been able to turn off all week. The video, directed by Valentin Rivera & Theodore Sleeks, dropped in March and has racked up a crazy 187k views. Peep the video and listen to the full album below.
