Lando Chill's debut for Mello Music Group is one of those life-affirming records. It's a 12-song tribute to the father who passed away when the Chicago-born and raised rapper was just three years old-the rare shout into the existential abyss that actually receives answers echoing back. It's a coming-of-age story rooted in life, death, and legacy. It reminds us how the dearly departed can leave behind an indelible light. He says it himself: his soul has a purpose. He made his dad proud. He made himself proud. He reminded us that some things are timeless.
