Kaleel Carpè is one of the most exciting hip hop artists I've found in the past few weeks. There's something about his voice that's just so captivating. His latest single "Poison" revolves around the current state of the United States for black people.
The North Carolina-based artists raps about the industrial prison system and the rough environments that black people are made to be stuck in or take the maximum effort to get out. Strung together by an excerpt of a Malcolm X and ended by a piece of a conversation with Kaleel and his incarcerated brother, the track is as intimate as it could get.
