Chore Boy Teases New Album With Michael Phelps Meal and Vision.

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU CO-SIGN” is the title of the upcoming album being put out by Chore Boy, in collaboration with Brad Kemp. If you are not already familiar with the extensive body of work by these two, go to your favorite streaming service right now and look them up! Chore Boy and Brad Kemp have released multiple full length records, featuring many different underground sensations.

The first single coming off their latest record is MICHAEL PHELPS MEAL, featuring the two emcees that make up the trio Jyroscope. Jyroscope is made up of emcees Collasoul Structure and I.B. Fokuz as well as a producer, DJ Seanile. The lyrics from Chore Boy’s hook ring true in its anti selfishness message. “Michael Phelps meal, we could all eat, don’t swim too far, we could all eat. You can’t see shore, you should calm down, we have land here, we could all eat!

Chore Boy steps off his door step looking like a snack, smelling like a pack and delivers an uber lyrical verse. “Most of my homies never listened to what their elders told them, lost in Oblivion like Elder Scrolls was.” Chore Boy once again structures an impressive composition on a record, writing an attention grabbing hook, a sophisticated verse and recruiting Jyroscope for the complimentary pieces that fit into this song perfectly.

The second track that Chore Boy released in collaboration with Brad Kemp, from the upcoming LP “BE CAREFUL WHO YOU CO-SIGN,” is “VISION” featuring Chicago’s Boys V.S. Girls. Originally this song was written to the instrumental from the TYGA song, TASTE featuring Offset. That was a hit from the summer of 2018. Originally upon hearing Chore Boy’s version we knew, whatever beat eventually received those lyrics for permanent wax would be fire.

VISION is no exception to Chore Boy’s signature hook style, with his lyrical crooning and masterfully crafted multiple meanings. His lyrics evoke much thought and require a mental breakdown to absorb all the layers. “Keep my code of ethics Hammurabi, need an eye for an eye. Losing teeth in my dreams, need your smile then goodbye.” According to Chore Boy himself, the lines symbolize the idea of losing control, and wanting collateral for the pain inflicted by someone he fell out with; the philosophy of an ‘eye for an eye.

Boys V.S. Girls comes in with a high energy, almost Tupac-like sound and flow. He yell raps in a melodic fashion that also seems to channel 90’s grunge. Overall the song is well crafted and, as always, Chore Boy curates a well fitted feature on his record. Be on the lookout for Chore Boy and Brad Kemp’s “BE CAREFUL WHO YOU CO-SIGN” featuring many talents from Chicago and abroad, coming out August 26th.

Scoochie Boochie In Search of The Lost City of Atlantits: Artist of the Week

Scoochie Boochie buys a luxury submarine to search for the LOST CITY OF ATLANTITS. A legendary paradise that sank into the sea when its women got too thick. The synopsis given by Boochie himself, and whilst that is accurate, this album is so in depth with the concept of lude, sexual humor, through the guise of a nautical focused setting and character, that the previous description might not due it justice. This album is the epitome of the word conceptual.

Scoochie Boochie is a new age hip hop influenced Pop-Eye the Sailor, mixed with the sexual satire and puns one would hear in Too $hort records. He is fluid and makes his style seem effortless, how he flows over instrumentals with sex jokes, after sex jokes. The record is mixed and mastered by RhymSter, with instrumentals provided by Vanilla Villa, Dee B, Guillermo, and Fartmaster J. The sound is crisp and clean, with the signature inflection from the main protagonist, Scoochie, cutting through in each track.

There are also a series of skits that paint a vivid picture, and drive a narrative of how Scoochie Boochie eventually winds up in Atlantits in his luxurious submarine. All the while detailing a sex-capade worthy of Austin Powers. The project is 18 total tracks, including skits, and lasts approximately 40 minutes. The sound, style, stories, skits and lyricism of Scoochie Boochie will bring a listener on a hilariously interesting time. The flow of the album feels like it could be scored into a musical and be a hit!

Notable lines from the record are throughout all of his songs, there is not a stale track on the project. “The beacon is lit, Gondor calls for aid, Rohan’s on the way, but it’s me with the dick, the trees and a zip;” that line can be found on the track I’M GOING TO HAVE SEX. That is just a taste of what you can expect to find on THE LOST CITY OF ATLANTITS.

Aires Adora Tunes Into Classic Chicago House Sounds: Woman Crush Wednesday

Aires Adora is a gem to find in the vast treasure trove of artists that is Chicago. Tapping into the city’s music history and becoming apart of the dance music culture, being classically trained, her vocals and style are a perfect match for Chicago House. Closer to the original style, filled with soulful vocals made popular by artists like Frankie Knuckles and Farley Jackmaster Funk, mixed with some R&B; giving off a bit of a Disclosure vibe. Consistent throughout her discography with tracks like ANOTHER DAY, MAJIK CARPET RIDE and most recently, her music video for TAKE MY LOVE.

Produced by non other than Ron Caroll, close friend and player of Jackmaster Funk and Chicago House respectively, and written by Latoya Washington, Aires Adora flawlessly vocalizes for the camera! Dancing confidently as she sings in her night dress, easily getting you dancing to the rhythm and chorus. As most contemporary house music or edm artists focus more on production and limited vocals, (in most cases just using samples) Adora modernizes that classic marriage of production and vocals in house music. Infecting our senses with the urge to dance, it would be a fantasy to see Aires Adora combine her talents with other Chicago icons like Green Velvet and Kaskade.
