Chicago MC Haiku mixes classic lo-fi atmospheric soul sounds with his intense modern beats. Refreshingly, his writing is evocative rather than provocative. While big ticket rappers operate by making brash, boastful statements, Haiku's rule of engagement is to get the listener to ask himself questions. In For That, the question is: was it worth it? "That," for you, might be money, an object, a lover, a bad habit, or an idea. Whatever it is, you lost something to get it.
