A group with their own unique brand of Hip Hop, Chicago trio Handsome Naked is coming in with a HEAT CHECK, because they have been on fire. As shown at the start of the video accompanying the song, HEAT CHECK is a term in basketball while you play, to determine your consistency. These 3 basketball fans have been running game in their own respect as well, making big moves as artists. Appearing on Billboard, NBC and the Chicago Tribune, as well as performing at known venues in Chicago; Zanies, Lincoln Hall and the Laugh Factory. Choosing those venues because they like to express what they would call Comedic Hip Hop.

You can get a hint of their humour in the video itself as well as their lyricism as they fumble and goof around all while a maintaining a serious demeanor. Yet despite their antics they are actually pretty impressive on the mic. Some of their more savory lyrics by Eric Oren, “no regrets, I’m working up some butt sweat, I need to destress,” and by Chucho Perez, “Better check on your diet, you lookin’ unfit, gotta check on that climate, we don’t ever cool it. Can you check why they quiet, when they see we legit?” With their beats produced by Brad Kemp, they really are already lit, maintaining multiple videos and and songs, their playlist should be fun to dive into, give them a follow.

Woman Crush Wednesday: London Lo

Watching London Lo grow since her debut EP has been a pleasure and an inspiration; She moves with ease! Does not do too much, or too little, as she pops back in from a hiatus to release a new single. GONE OFF YOU has already hit the radio in Chicago as well, another achievement to follow her debut single CLEAR MY MIND, which hit the radio off its release as well. She did however stay busy in silence!

She may have had her first release since last year after that one TUESDAY IN LA, but she did plenty to occupy her time. Curating her own open mic events and working to get her music on mainstream radio, she also performed live on multiple occasions, including one at SXSW, and her first sold out event at Sofar Chicago. Let us not forget to mention that she made her way into Netflix Original Special SOUNDTRACK. Since the debut of her wildly creative debut EP PDA (Public Display of Artistry). London Lo has been making some serious boss moves and it is exciting to see where she is headed in this new decade.
