Later this year, Khallee — a member of rising R&B collective JODY and a key player in the tightly-knit Chicago scene that gave us “Down” — will step out on his own to release a debut solo project through Lo Motion. Today, following in his JODY associate The GTW’s suit, he broke off a preview: “2Layers,” a wash of whispery hi-hats (courtesy producer Bobby Swan) and thoughtful raps that tumble into sweet, sung melodies. Promising! Catch him at Glasslands in Brooklyn on March 5th with The GTW, Tiombe Lockhart, Princess Nokia and Tomboy; tickets are available here.
