Cavalier drops the first single from his project Chief. In it, the trap house gets a reverse makeover, bringing to light the seedy side of raising a family in drugged places. The album is due on September 9. Check the video after the jump.
This is a gem from the homey Cavalier, the Brooklyn chief whose collaborations with producers Quelle Chris and Iman Omari have gained him solid backing after years in the trenches. "Ink" paints a picture of the young emcee's journey with a focus on hard lessons and gloomy glimpses. Iman Omari's production really sings here though, giving voice and texture to this grainy photo album of classic nostalgia.
