Chief Keef ft Tadoe “Let Me See”

By Emmanuel 

The Dedication is real


Keef just dropped off his third project of the year Dedication and its probably the best if not second to Two Zero One Seven. A major standout besides singles that have already dropped has to be the Tadoe featuring “Let Me See”. The track finds the cousins boasting in their signature style over a rambunctious horn led instrumental. Shit bangs, listen below.


Lucki “Incoming” Video

One of the hardest out


Lucki is one of the best young rappers out right now. The Chicago native has gone through a re-branding of drugs in the past year and this new perc and lean Lucki reminds me of a synthetic drug using Curren$y. I would characterize Lucki’s style now as one of the more lyrical iterations of mumble rap. As Lucki’s tone and delivery is soft and drugged out but very audible and clearly thought through.

“Where’s Warhol” Out Now


Chicago’s very own Warhol just dropped his EP to build anticipation for his debut project Chest Pains. Warhol taps frequent Uno The Activist producer Staccato for the entire project and the lone features are Jay Critch and Rich The Kid on “Froze”. A standout for me is the overwhelming slapper “Shell Shocked”. Listen below.

G Herbo fucked your bitch in 2006


If you’ve been paying attention to Herbo’s Instagram he has been flaming fans who are complaining to him about the long wait for his debut album Humble Beast. It seems many have forgot about the promised 808 Mafia collaborative mixtape Swervo. Now in order to appease the ravenous masses he drops the initial single for the tape “Legend”. The track is hard listen below.

Young Legends


Chuck Inglish and Sir Micheal Rocks reunited as the Cool Kids last year and dropped a handful of dope records leading up to the release of their next album Special Edition Grand Master Deluxe. In addition to the awesome “Running Man”, “Connect 4”, and “TV Dinner” they add on the hard-hitting “Checkout” where Chuck and Mikey trade bars over a minimalist piano instrumental. Listen below.

Humble Beast on the way


Herbo is beginning the rollout for his debut album Humble Beast. And what a better way to start it than with a collaboration with Chicago native producer C-Sick. “Red Snow” is classic Herbo as he spits a painful story about his upbringing over monumental sampled production. Listen below.
