Chi-town producer Mulatto Beats has delivered his new project .22 Summers, and it features a nice collection of underrated, underground emcees. Artists like Mick Jenkins, King L, and Lucki are some of the names to bless the project, and each one sounds comfortable over Mulatto's smooth, airy trap production.
The highlight comes from the Mick Jenkins assisted, "Guilty Automatic," which finds the Chicago lyricist going in over a dark, hazy instrumental. King Louie also shines on that Mulatto sound, sounding confident and charismatic on "Long Live The Kings." Overall, the project is a quick, consistent listen, so don't sleep on this underground Chicago hip-hop.
