If the rap gods have any sense of justice, Nato Caliph will go down in history as St. Louis' equivalent to Common.

Both artists spit conscious rhymes with charisma and an intense -- yet tender -- flow. Each tells stories in their songs in a way that is accessible and compelling. Plus it would also be a full circle type of thing, since Nato was one of the select members of The Force who opened for Common last month at the Solider's Memorial.

Nato dropped a new EP today -- his birthday -- titled REACH.

It's five songs long and features guest spots from a ton of other talented locals -- Black Spade, Lyfestile, Corey Black, Kyjuan, Rome, Family Affair, Rockwell Knuckles, Tef Poe, Gotta Be Karim, Vandalyzm and Bryant Stewart.
