Lando Chill: Peso Feat. Quelle Chris & REY

Lando Chill’s unconcerned rhyme flow matches well with The Lasso’s hazy production, Quelle Chris and REY on his new single “Peso.” The song will be on his upcoming third album Black Ego. The Chicago native who currently resides in Los Angeles explained the intentions behind the sound of “Peso” in a press release:

Lasso and I set out to create a soundscape that could be the canvas for both our southwest border influence & midwest origins, nestled between the experience of living as a person of color in a police state & the caution one must inherit in order to feel safe in a country that has yet to fully accept nor understand equality. The hood is as much the “frontline” as the border & reservations, as they all have been militarized against & oppressed by our government; through legislation, perception, & abhorrent action. Quelle Chris & Rey from Ojalá Systems round out the narrative; creating a kaleidoscope of wisdom & wariness that precedes what it means to be a person of color battered by the wage gap within the police state in which we reside.” 

Lando Chill’s Black Ego comes out October 12th.
