Chicago's Calez Drops Timely, Volatile 'Pandemic Freestyle' 

 Evan Dale // April 4, 2020 

Chicago lyricist, Calez is a rapper whose bars are as volatile as they come. And for a scene as stacked and lyrically endowed as the city he’s from, that praise doesn’t come lightly. There’s reason that fellow Chicago rappers known most for their intensity and fiery delivery, like Mick Jenkins and Alex Wiley with whom he dropped collaborative single, Cool, line up to work with Calez.


His latest single is further testament to his unapologetic delivery. Pandemic is a two-part freestyle brimming with the kind of balance between timely humor and raw talent that makes for a very specific kind of hit. And we’re here for it with a mask on, of course.
