We are excited to introduce you to Chicago based rap artist Kai Akili who recently released his 4-track EP entitled “Off the Grid”, produced solely by Malik Ismail.

The “Off the Grid” project makes a statement towards finding oneself through self-reflection as Kai details his experience going off the “grid” of Chicago into the bayou of New Orleans. The tribal production in the project’s intro “Journey” carries the weight of the story all the way through the jazzy outro “Too Lovely”. Each track unveils a new layer of Kai’s introspective narrative which heavily compliments the intense musical composition by Malik.

“Off the Grid” acts as a formidable debut project for the Kai Akili moniker and is intentional in its entirety, from its distinctive production to its purposeful lyrical content and conception.
