[Video] Calez: “The American Dream Concept Ep. 2”

Calez has been one of my favorite artists to make a big jump through this year. Following 2012s critically-acclaimed Kid With Raps, The 2008ighties member and Chicago native dropped Too Broke Tape, one of the most fully crafted releases to come out of the Second City this year. After parlaying that into a frenetic SXSW that saw Calez hustle shows, clearly on his hustle. His performance at RapGenius had bloggers slamming their keyboards to explain this smooth, lyrical kid from the middle of the map.

Since then, he linked up with DJ Oreo for the G-Unit Bundle Pack, a five song EP released in May. With all that behind him, one wouldn’t blame Calez for taking a little break heading into the new year. Instead, Calez has stayed heavy on the grind, opening for Macklemore on his “Heist” tour and producing his own web series, of which we have episode two today. Watch as Calez and Oreo crisscross the country, catch some fish and rock some shows in the video below and keep an eye out for Ceito, coming soon.
