Don’t be fooled by the way Colombian native Kali Uchis sweetly sings her rhymes. “Baby understand—I don’t need a man. Fuck me over, I’ll fuck you worse and take off to Japan,” the LA-based songwriter coos in the track “Ridin Round.” While comparisons to Kreayshawn to Amy Winehouse are aplenty, Uchis asserts her independence and shows off chicano culture the way she wants to. Her just-released EP Por Vida, featuring tracks produced by Kaytranada and Tyler, the Creator, is available for free download.
