Calez is a rising rapper out of Chicago has worked with many of his city's most promising young artists. He has a mixtape by the name of Baby due out next month. Yesterday he premiered a star-studded track on Ebro's Beats 1 show, "Still Good" feat. Mick Jenkins, Donnie Trumpet and Alex Wiley.
Produced by Rollie, "Still Good" contains all the hallmarks of the sort of a sound generally described as "soulful" -- vibrant, triumphant strings, emphatic boom bap, chipmunk'd vocals, and distant trumpet licks, courtesy of Donnie Trumpet.

It's like Michelangelo, hisself came down to protect us
Most infectious, he speak that confidence we own these records
If God is for us who should be against us?
Don't tense up, when you see these wholly credentials, make mental notes
I write so hard, my pen gon' soak between my bars you gon pen you post
I came to give these black kids hope
I'm in the hood winking but you know I ain't no joke
