monkeyhermit

The Monkey Hermit releases his first EP Abstrct. Part of the Artistic Brigade this Chicago local chooses to remain anonymous behind a monkey mask keeping it more focused on the music. If you are lucky enough to know the Monkey Hermit personally you can probably make out his voice as he does his own vocals.  The Abstrct EP contains 4 tracks with some hip hop and boom bap elements, making it the perfect ep to kick back and chill to. This is only his first EP of many so make sure to follow him on his soundcloud for future updates. You can also catch the Artistic Brigade throwing parties every weekend showcasing their music. More info on the Artistic Brigade facebook page.

These Chicago locals otherwise known as the B.A.N.D.I.T. Crew are aspiring lyricists and producers lookin for a spot in the chicago music scene, and from first listen it is not hard to conclude that these guys have some real potential. Accounting for only about a quarter of the Bandit crew, Rhymster, Safi MF G, and Chosen, spit some real lyrics over this smooth instrumental beat that will leave your head bobbin and your soul vibin. The crew bringing the original hip hop vibe back with their own style and energy that keeps their sound relevant to the changing times. Fresh lyrics like this makes you wonder why the mainstream “hip hop” artists and “rappers” are even relevant themselves.
