Amilcar is a rising rapper out of Chicago, but rather than embracing the punishing sounds of drill, or the soulful introspection of SAVEMONEY and Mick Jenkins, the rapper has alligned himself more with sonic experimentalists like IBN Inglor. The filtered samples on the track come to a climax in the outro, coming together for a jarring collage of sounds that's unlike anything coming out of the region at this time. His True Rebels Walk Alone EP is due out in November.
"The Seasons" has placed the rapper among this week's final four Heatseekers. If you like to have your song or video featured on the site, you can submit content to us here.
Still got a love for the city, even in winter
Moved to the A for a minute
But no, no, I gotta be where it's gritty and bitter
Lovin' the Chi like I love black women
