Kalipop Joins Instrumentalist Tha Jerm On “Ching”
Montreal’s Kalipop connects with SOI’s producer/engineer Tha Jerm to provide an ideal vibe over perfectly composed production. The pair has worked together in the past on various projects, including Kalipop’s most recent album ‘NEON,’ which was exclusively engineered and mixed by Jerm, and also featured his production on several tracks.
You may be familiar with his sound in the world of hardcore hip-hop, as Tha Jerm has worked with many veteran rappers such as Dave East, Lloyd Banks, Jim Jones, SchoolBoy Q, Danny Brown, French Montana, Styles P, Jadakiss, and more. This time around, the goal was to deliver something out of the ordinary.
The first time I met Kali, I knew she was a star. We’ve made many great records, but when I made this beat, I knew she was going to make this one VERY special! Her direction in creating “Ching” reflected on her situation at the time. She wanted to express that money doesn’t judge you like people do.
Kalipop was dealing with a lot during the recording process of Ching. She was feeling really broke and struggling with people judging her without knowing her, you know, like most people. We can see, that didn’t slow her down, nor did it discourage her from creating music to empower others. It’s definitely refreshing to see a young artist develop her own sound, write her own music and remain driven and confident.
