ChanSe NFO Drops GROSS

ChanSe NFO latest track, GROSS, is a heavy song with fast low bass flows from your favorite Never Fall Off emcee. “I might have fun on the track, think ima feel it and spazz, I might go dumb on the track, give em the drama that nah mofo relax!” ChanSe follows that rhyme scheme for the first part of the song until he gets to his more uptempo structure, “I don’t really think you wanna talk a bunch, reach inside your pocket thats an option but a funny one, when I get offended I pretend and then I sucker punch!” This an awesome sequence of lines, don not try pulling a gun on ChanSe, he will be ready with his fist before you have time to shoot.

Real men have solved their problems for eons with bare knuckle boxing, ChanSe would not need to use a tool. “The loudest one be the weakest one in the room, if he talking shit, that’s probably nothing else he can do, kinda feel bad cuz you ain’t feel comfortable in your shoes.” What a brutally honest and truthful line, usually the one that barks the loudest has the weakest bite and its mostly bluffing or over compensating for a lack of something. ChanSe points this aspect out brilliantly in that sense of toxic masculinity. GROSS by ChanSe NFO is a dope and meaty track for your hip hop consumption and we highly recommend you stream it now!

StankNasty Lets His Walls Down

StankNasty keeping the fire stoked with another new release, keeping up with the diversity in his discography! Presenting a different flow compared to his most recent tunes, StankNasty opens up his heart and mind! With many of his latest songs coming off energetic and braggadocios, like LIBRA SCALE, I KNOW I’VE WON, THE LORD KNOWS and his forthcoming EPIC-EP album single KNOW THE NAME, WALLS has more of a somber tone. With an acoustic guitar and piano chords harmonizing behind a hip hop beat and a vocal sample, StankNasty raps, “if I’m alone with my thoughts, its an eternal battle, that’s why I coach myself, like the prescription bottle rattle“. Similarly to his track TRAUMA that covers suicidal thoughts and behaviors, WALLS goes over the topic of mental health and treatment, only this time he connects with the listener on a deeper, more personal level about his experiences in his head and growing up.

Addicted To New Kellen Fescina Music: Woman Crush Wednesday

Coming up upon another talented artist that displays the amazing diversity in Chicagos music scene. A model with a beautiful voice, Kellen Fescina comes into attention with a sensual pop single called ADDICTED. Not new to the mic in the slightest however, Kellen has a few releases this year following a hiatus. Currently armed with a 12 track album and some singles, she has bounced between synth pop styles, dance music tracks and experimental rock. ADDICTED takes on more of an R&B aura, and shows a maturity and more confidence in her presentation compared to her earlier work!

Singing “Boy you got me drunk off your love, it’s addicting! I need it, I fiending! You got me losing my mind,” over a slow beat and piano chords. The chorus uplifts you with a vibrant emotional serenade, as you fall into a dream state! A powerful yet gentle tune to add to your playlist, to really get the vibe right in an intimate setting. This track follows LEAVE ME and SHINING, a hip hop and house beat respectively, released earlier this year. Quite a different energy from her earlier releases in her album LOVE IS A GAME, where that album treads into retro and old school styles and influences, while her recent releases have more a contemporary, confident and original quality. It is always interesting to hear an artists experiments and progression!

Marko Stat$ Gets Graphic: Artist of the Week

Putting in work on the come up this year, Marko Stat$ has been shining this summer heading into fall. Building up on releases and music videos, Marko Stat$ keeps his creative edge sharp with every piece of new work. Whether it be a freestyle or the conscious lyricism that got us hooked on Stat$, with projects like BEE 4 I FLY AWAY, he always keeps it fre$h and consistent. His effort and hustle is catching up as he gains strength in numbers!

In August, Marko Stat$ released two visuals with two very different energies, but performed in equal confidence. WHAT’S POPPIN‘ starts off enthusiastic off the bat, getting into his electrifying flow right away. Choppin’ it up in the streets of Downtown Chicago for the setting, while he spits bars with the attitude of his city on his back, boasting his freestyle talent. THINKING OUT LOUD gives off more of a relaxed vibe, however the content of his lyricism is tough. Contemplating racism and tradition, bringing awareness to the tension between authority and minorities. Posted up in front of Bahá’í House of Worship, a subtle symbolic gesture to the spiritual growth of the black man, Marko Stat$ aims to inspire with his creativity in all of his songs. “And they say Marko you don’t rap like this no more… I’m trying to show the the youth that black people can do anything, you think of yourself too low, you limit everything

His latest release, GRAPHIC, bounces back into his experimental, creative expression. Not just spittin’ hip hop verses but vocalizing as well for a catchy chorus. This originality has been gaining him a lot of recognition, especially with this latest release, reaching views in the thousands in a such a short amount of time. Walking and rhyming with the confidence of a veteran, Marko Stat$ continues to level up on his creative effort both visually and sonically, turning more and more heads as he goes. He is bound to take the spotlight of bigger stages in the foreseeable future!

Lassai’s Got ‘It’ Within (Music Video)

Lassai has got IT goin on in his latest music video, and as a reminder, so do you. Whatever IT may be; energy, attitude, message, perspective or hustle, this music video is a reminder to feel IT within yourself, and to be proud of IT. From the South Side of Chicago, Lassai aims to invoke confidence in your authenticity as a human being, directing your awareness inward through his verses, “Are you feeling it, Take control of it… If you want it come get it, Do you want it?” Doubling up with the visuals, dancers passionately moving to and fro, with urban settings as their stage, it paints a metaphor that you can flourish in any environment, any circumstance. A calming song to reflect upon personally, on top of being moved by the rhythm physically.

Withholding any more singles from the aforementioned project, StankNasty still has some loosies to give away before the big release!

When it comes time to hustle, I embody the perfection.

Nova The King Debuts with Lake Shore Dreams: Artist of the Week

Part Action Bronson, part Mac Miller; A raspy voice and tight rhyme schemes, with classic braggadocio lines, is part of what makes Nova The King a unique, and also new artist, to the scene of Chicago. LAKE SHORE DREAMS, his debut ep, just dropped on all platforms on the anniversary of our nations most fateful day – 9/11. Which is actually just a popular day to do or drop anything given the impact of that date. Lake Shore Dreams is the first stab by Nova The King to cement himself into the music and hip hop industry of Chicago.

Track 1 is DREAMS, which utilizes that signature Nova The King, slow, raspy flow with his in-the-pocket rhyme patterns. Notable lines are, “I remember nights spent up in the basement, cooking up that crack. I don’t know about you, but I believe you have everything I lack.” Track 2 is SLYTHERIN, an obvious Harry Potter reference. Nova The King seems to be influenced by a lot of anime and pop culture that we all grew up with, for example DREAMS has a Dragon Ball Z sample. In SLYTHERIN, Nova The King details snake like behavior, and the often occurrences of swindlers you will run into, pursuing hip hop in Chicago.

Track 3 is WOAH, this track details how Nova The King is focused on success and not becoming distracted by the many women he has come across. Track 4, ALL THAT, where Nova mentions how things used to be, and how he is not reverting back to that lifestyle. He likes doing his own thing and sticking to the music business. In the fifth song, COST ALOT, there is a medieval sounding flute, and the bass line and drums come in perfectly along with his flow. Notable line is his Rick and Morty Scary Terry reference, “I know you sweet like Ben & Jerry, I be in your dreams like Scary Terry.

The final track on the EP is produced by Yondo, who is a favorite YouTube producer among the rap game. “Believe the paranoia, you know that I’ll destroy, I’ll Oscar Delahoya, you better phone your lawyer.” Is the hook which is the best on the project and makes you vibe and head rock. Props to Nova The King for entering the Chicago hip hop scene and releasing his first EP, LAKE SHORE DREAMS!

StankNasty Releases Trauma In Latest Single

Covering many concepts like fantasy, anger, confusion and confidence in his releases this year like SCATTER BRAINED, CARNAGE, ABOUT THAT TIME and PREACHING TO THE CHOIR and others, there is another to place awareness on! A tough and sensitive subject to traverse, but StankNasty dives into it with ease, as it is subject of growing importance among men and people in general! TRAUMA, the title of the his lastest release, is a feeling and experience all too familiar where it may concern Mental Health Awareness. StankNasty brings to life a story of trauma, a suicide, to which all parties familiar suffer a great deal emotionally. Opening up to how it affected close friends, and the warning signs leading up to the event.

Many artists tip toe around the subject to feign relatability, but lyrically, StankNasty does not shy away from the bitter truth of the pains of mental health. “Why the hell would someone choose to have such an affliction, and this includes anyone whos copes with addiction. These are real fucking conditions, since I was 10 years old this is the shit that I’ve lived with.” Placing awareness on how common the consequences of unspoken mental issues, it may help others feel more inclined to reach out for help. As StankNasty puts it so well in his lyrics. “Don’t ever be ashamed to go out and get some help… it’s important that we care for our mental health.” The depth in the music composition, and the harmony of the chorus, dials up the passion and tonality of the subject.
