Mikkey Halsted – ‘Obamanomics’ (Prod. by No I.D.) | New Music

It’s politics as usual for Chicago MC Mikkey Halsted on “Obamanomics,” a stirring social commentary from his upcoming, Don Cannon-hosted mixtape Castro.

Halsted has long been considered one of Chicago’s most adept and aware lyricists, and “Obamanomics” serves as further proof of these claims. Over a laid-back No I.D. production, Halsted goes in on the state of the ‘hood and the U.S. at large under a few presidential regimes, landing on today’s situation which, he posits, is pretty much more of the same with a few relatively insignificant improvements.

Check out the track below. Castro drops August 13th.
