It’s been far too long since we’ve heard new Kal (whether it’s been as Sidewalk Kal, Kal Pacino or Kal the God) and even longer since we’ve heard Kal and CT beatsmith Color Plus team up on a joint. “P A R A N O I D” demonstrates that Kal hasn’t been slacking off but has been maturing and sharpening his craft. The track opens up with Kal rocking a near SPACEGHOSTPURRP like flow over Color Plus’ hypnotizing, narcotic-laced beat before opening up into a verse that is distinctively all his own. “P A R A N O I D” features some of Kal’s best overdubbing (something he’s always been great at) with multiple tracks working together to create a multilayered and emotive verse. It’s clear that when “P A R A N O I D” comes to it’s quick stop by the end of the track that Kal doesn’t always need to say it directly to remind us that he’s a rap god.
