As Chicago winds up another long, hot summer, plagued by violence and riddled with tragedy, Typical Cats lob in another time bomb, a Qwa solo slab entitled “Reflections from the Porch.” Anchored by a Natural beat awash in harmonies, bittersweet guitar, and, as always, dust-covered knocking drums, “Reflections” is a two and a half minute masterwork, a miniature history, and a meditative moment from one of the premier MCs of his generation. Described by Hip Hop Renaissance man Kevin Beacham as “one of the best natural Rappers of this era,” Qwa is in excellent form here, leaning back into the stories, sipping from a jarful of memory.

“I remember beating on the tables / no interest from the majors / high school talent shows / booed us off stages… / wardrobe busted up — couldn’t afford the labels / cheap-ass backpacks — sneakers that’ll match that.” In 4 bars, Qwa time-travels us decades back, digging into pre-TC lore and further, inviting us to examine the soul topography of a quintessential survivor.
