“Sabali” is the new EP by emcee Kairo and producer Hoopaloop, both from Canada. “Sabali” is the realization of a dream that had been in the making for at least 6 years. Though the working relationship of Hoopaloop and Kairo officially began in 2018, the lyrics and beats heard had been in the making since as early as 2015. Though starting on different paths, their roads would connect in 2018 and it hasn’t stopped since. The words and music though written years earlier, unfortunately still ring true to this day. Specifically the topic of oppression under an unjust system. “Sabali” means patience and represents the payoff for years of blood sweat and tears.
