2015 has been a good year for East Bay rapper, Caleborate, and by the looks of it, 2016 will be even better. Pigeons and Planes named him one of “20 Artists About To Blow” and his album, Hella Good, has been making waves (spoiler: it's one of SF Weekly's Best Albums of 2015). Caleborate's latest song, “Hold On,” produced by Kuya Beats and Cal-A, pairs the MC's velvety, smooth bars with beats that switch back and forth between laid back jazz to reverbed, minimalist electronica. Caleborate proves, yet again, that he has a knack for combining classic sounds with experimental techniques, and he is quickly becoming a rising star in the Bay Area rap scene. The MC said that while he has no plans to release another project any time soon, he is “working on a bunch of songs right now…that I want to unveil in 2016.” So keeps your eyes and ears peeled for that. Actually, never mind. We'll do that for you. Duh.
