Chen Lo - Real Thing

Album:
Chronicles of a Rebel

Is Brooklyn emcee Chen Lo for real? Well, he apparently thinks so on his new single, Real Thing. Producer Kallisto supplies him with a warbling soul sample, brassy trumpets, and drums over which to create his dream world. Taking a page from fellow “conscious” artists like Common and Kanye West, Lo executes to perfection a track about the difficulties of growing up in the streets and the violence that plagues them. While Chen Lo wishes things could be different, he encourages everyone to keep working at achieving his or her dreams, and to push harder in the face of resistance. It’s possible that Real Thing could indeed help Lo achieve his dreams of hitting the music industry jackpot; his swagger and intelligence are just what the game could use. Look for more thoughtful numbers when his album, Chronicles of a Rebel, drops on November 4.
