With summer approaching, Indie Buzz is looking for the next chill-out emcee to beat the heat with. What a better way to do this with the self-proclaimed “Chill God” Joel Kellem! This Pittsburgh emcee is a lot like those before him, like Chevy Woods and Mac Miller in his laid-back light-one-up style.┬áThe 20-year old has a wide catalog of music videos. Check out this one for “Playing Arnd” featuring Sh’Mi. The beat┬ásounds an awful lot like something J Dilla hooked up.

Aesthetic wise, Joel Kellem plays off the adult swim cut-aways. Peep game when you watch the video for “Stacking and Shinning.”
