Vic Mensa Calls Out Police Brutality and Standing Rock

Vic Mensa has gotten a lot of attention for this song. Going to great lengths to make sure the truth is known. He has made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and performed 16 Shots with riot police geared performers. The song and video itself includes a excerpt of a police recording. Vic Mensa is becoming a voice for the unheard against the establishment going as far as comparing the battle between Dakota Access Pipeline and Native Americans on their own land to Black Lives Matters movement. This is a human vs government interest matter and must stand with eachother to fight injustice. Join Vic Mensa at Standing Rock or lend support by visiting their website.

Young Label from Chicago, Nuworld is growing with talent from the city. One of the many artists of the label Kayo teams up with theMIND on a smooth beat by Donato.

Simple idea for the video produced by Cole Bennett, similar to I Wonder music video, all that as needed for a quality video is a familiar environment and some enthusiasm. Spittin verses out in a park with nature for visuals and a few time lapse edits for a good mood setting. Putting the focus on the artist and his lyrics.

Two Sides To Tink

Tink has been working hard in the studio since returning with Winters Diary 4 showing us how much of a dynamic woman she is. With her recent collab and release we get to see more. Always presenting herself strong and ambitious as she does in her Freestyle over the Ooouuu beat. A woman of this this taste has strong & tempting love too as expressed in her collab with Jacquees. Both with a passion for R&B they creatd a beautiful song Outta Line with no problem. Telling the Fader neither of them wrote the song they both just went into the booth and vibed off each other and the music and a story came out of it. Now that’s artistic expression.

Supa Bwe’s Goddess’s

Chi-towns Supa Bwe is not only a hip hop artist but his own music producer as well. With his style in Trip Hop beats he spits over his own production about his Goddess’s. His Moon Goddess and New Goddess. A different side of Supa Bwe we do not hear often. She will make you feel all kinds of ways but never sick of her! You can hear a familiar sample in New Goddess from Bell Biv Devoe adding that ol school flavor.

KAMI & Knox Fortune

Beat Smith Knox Fortune has a good record working with dope artists from Chicago. His beats are just irresistible to the ear. So reputable artists like Chance, Towkio, Joey Purp & theMIND can count on him. Being the other half of Leather Corduroys alongside Joey Purp KAMI is no stranger to his deep nostalgic basslines. Just releasing 2 singles in recent weeks with Knox, earliest being Foundation, a heavy beat and with KAMI spittin verses raw and passionate. Home Movies goes in another direction. A bit more upbeat like you are in a retro movie anthem with slow bass and high synths. The track gets a music video setting taking place in a diner and the main character fittingly dances as if she was in a Cyndi Lauper video. Makes you feel like you are in a different era but these tracks are timeless!

Will Is Chillin On New Music

Will Is Chillin’ but he is preparing. Just about a about week away from dropping his album Moody the hype is building. Recently releasing an amped up track Bimbo, with DRO on production this only follows a few collabs. Spittin a few verses on Emoji Hand Sign from Scabbers recent EP as well as Glassics both from Chicago. Also got together with Treatment x Rapid Eye from New Age Music on a beat produced by Yellowjacket. Will has paved a pretty consistent trail of music leading up to now.

In comes Loosifer. A peak at his newest project. He raps about a mindless addiction to the White Devil, the cancer sticks, the cigarette. But in the end our sweet mistress Mary Jane takes the cake as always. The music video personifies the metaphor with a gorgeous brunette in white, puffin away at that Loosifer. How can you resist? New album Moody dropping December 1st. The video is Directed by J.Krown with Production by Josh Grant.

Miss Chiff & Devmo See Through Your Mask

Miss Chiff has came through with another collab. This time she brings Devmo from LA on the beat to the Windy City. Over a heavy the two strong female figures rap about the people that wear a Mask. Those that are hiding something or are never quite real and realizing you have have to let go of that poison and move on for the better. Nobody has time for that. Certainly not Miss Chiff with those lightning fast rhymes, on to the next beat.
