Originally from Boston, Kali Raps recently made a move to Los Angeles. What motivated him to relocate, you ask? On Why I Came to Kalifornia, the aplty-titled fourth single off his forthcoming mixtape, the emcee fills us in on his many reasons, flowing over a sampled beat by Show Off boss Statik Selektah (who flips Leon Redbone’s funk-soul classic of the same name). Like what you’re hearing? More fresh tunes await on Kali’s DJ Green Lantern-hosted On Schedule tape, set to hit the ‘net March 6.
