Qwel & Kip Killagain "Agape Rain"
Chicago-based underground hip-hop label Galapagos4 keeps a steed of worthy talent in its ranks, including the prolific Qwel. The New Wine is Qwel's sixteenth release since his debut in 2000 as Typical Cats. From his early days rapping on a weekly radio show during college, Qwel has built an admirable group of devoted fans. Collaborating producer Kip Killagain brings some interesting sounds to the album, including the notable live violins and sick basslines on this track, "Agape Rain." Wyatt Williams
