Best Local Rap of 2014: 2. Concise Kilgore, KiLWave 2

Concise Kilgore

A followup to 2013's highly ambitious KiLWave series, KiLWave 2 finds rapper Concise Kilgore back in stride with his well-honed "Spit random cool shit that rhymes" style. This collection of 10 boiled-down, reference-heavy summer bangers was released over the span of just four months. Though most tracks are only about 2 1/2 minutes long (sometimes shorter), KiLWave 2 has the dexterity of a full-length album. Every track slaps like a quick dunk in a pre-game layup line—in other words, they're a brief glimpse of how nasty Concise can spit when he feels like it.
