The Chapter-rapper Verbal E. and producer 3Sixty-makes a Windy City to Sin City connection that results in unpretentious hip-hop. Silky vibes and spry percussion pepper “…I Do Despise,” a treatise on intricacies of the N word, and somber chords propel “Akhill Hill,” a scorned lover diatribe. No groundbreaking topics are tackled, but thought provoking joints, able lyricism, and minimal soap box posturing make The Chapter‘s live band rap accessible to everyone.
