Kahali Oden - Calgon
According to Wikipedia, CALGON has been the registered trademark of a brand of water softener as well as a line of health and beauty products. I’m gonna assume Kahali Oden‘s latest feature takes its name from the latter rather than the former because, like most of the Cali repper’s material, this sh*t goes hard. Released along with official visuals by Dunnie, the record features the emcee reflecting on both his personal struggles and broader political issues (“High-ass taxes, wiretaps, gun control, it’s a bigger trap.”) in hard-hitting verses. Trakhunta handles production, layering vocal and instrumental samples from Lana Del Rey‘s Video Games over a jittery, syncopated drum pattern.
