Qari & Mulatto - Space Jam (EP)

No comments:
After Hurt Everybody, Mulatto and Qari have moved forward as sort of an unofficial duo, continuing to deliver music. With the chemistry of being actual friends as a major connector, Qari's rap style and Mulatto's beats is a combination that provides some good vibes. Separately they've delivered plenty music throughout the year, but making sure to take the necessary time to create this EP. This new project has been labeled 'long awaited', but with so much music churning out on the internet, with much of it being cookie cutter, this project is right where it needs to be.

Ther's always been something about Qari super relaxed style of rap that I believe can catch you off guard. He's amassed a small but loyal fan base that never hesitates to drop a quote from his raps on social media. Last year he caught our attention with a super affectionate visual "Caterpillar, Butterfly", as one of our 'Top 28 Quality Videos Posted In 2016". Mulatto's production can be found all over CCHH, with credit alongside Alex Wiley, Lucki, Mick Jenkins, and more. He's working on his own solo project, and we know for sure Qari is featuring. Mulatto has an array of sounds he's dived into, from quick tempo track to smooth laid back vibes.

"Space Jam" holds a set of 6 songs, with features from Lucki and Sydny August, including single release "The Motions" and "Money Bitch".
