Rockie Fresh: "Into the Future"

Chalk it up to the dual Kanye / Common influences, but Chicago has established itself as one of the more chill rap scenes. Content to let other cities battle it out for alpha machismo, Chi-Town is the anti-Detroit: eschewing sappy hip hop love ballads while utilizing breezy, slightly foreboding back beats in service of thoughtful lyrics. "Into the Future" isn't particularly profound, but it's got a nice Sunday drive vibe to it, and who can resist that familiar model of Delorean?
