The last thing anyone should want to do in Chicago is drive. After more than three feet of snow fell over the last three weeks and windchills consistently in the single digits Chicagoans should want to stay indoors. Alas, Khalfani has made it impossible to want to stay home. His new single “Roll With Me” sounds like car rides at sunset through a city where some people’s cars are still buried in the snow.
Every native Chicagoan knows riding down Lake Shore Drive any time between sunset and dawn is either inexpensive therapy or the best cheap date ever. Khalfani teamed up with Gem Stone to provide a soundtrack for that ride regardless of what the purpose is. “Roll With Me” is by far the smoothest vibe to come out of the city in quite some time.
“Roll With Me” is a testament to Khalfani’s versatility and a reminder that true lyricism knows no limits. A staple in Chicago’s hip hop culture, Khalfani proves that talent knows no genre by immersing fans in a sea of soul. “Roll With Me” is a collaborative effort of musical genius between Khalfani, producer Lord Haiti, Gem Tree, and guitarist Jacob Grow.
“Roll With Me” is just beginning. Though the song leaves nothing to be desired, it’s only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what to expect from Khalfani in 2021. While awaiting the barrage of music Khalfani plans to hit fans with this year stream “Roll With Me” now.
