Well-produced recordings by Minneapolis artist Chevy Quis show a rapper whose crystal-clear voice is passionate, powerful, and contemporary. He’s an artist whose confidence is felt at every turn as he negotiates his often wild, winding way at the mic. Quis gets especially speedy on “HeadShot,” delivering its threat of violence in a sonic blur of syllables. (We only wish the beat had more finesse, was less monotonous.) Meanwhile, “Ballin” teams him with rapper Meatch to depict a sidekick’s street grind in the drug trade: “I just get the dough.” Our favorite track is “The Weekend.” From its child-like keyboard riff to its passionate, dazzling flow, it’s a song we can easily imagine on a hip-hop radio station.
