mp3: Sidewalk Kal – Sri Lanka (prod. Mattron)

We heard the teaser a while ago and have been lucky enough to hear Kal perform this track live a few times so it was a pretty nice surprise today to see that Kal has finally decided to put out “Sri Lanka”.  Since Yung AOL has overtaken Mattron this technically may be the last Mattron/Kal joint and it’s only fitting …
