Genre: Rap/Hip-Hop
Hometown: Los Angeles, CA

Raised in south Los Angeles, Josue Flores (aka "Cali") embraces and thrives off the culture that surrounds him. Influenced heavily by the lyrical geniuses who defined West Coast rap, Cali's writing is born of both his urban surroundings and more global issues—poverty, class struggles, religion, and government. His rhymes cross over the Spanish and English languages spoken around him throughout his life, and it's evident that the young Latin lyricist has found Hip-Hop as an ideal medium for his self-expression. Follow Cali's music at and the sights and sounds of his daily grind on Instagram at @whoiscali.
