Directed by Kevin & Toinne Productions. Produced by Kid Wonder.

As we’ve warned you numerous times, Lud Foe has the streets of the Westside on fire right now. And as his reach begins to engulf the whole city, he’s blessed us with the world premiere of his new video for “Coolin’ Wit My Shootas.” He was even nice enough to share the audio file as well. You can thank him now and later.

With “Coolin’ Wit My Shootas,” Lud continues to dazzle with his dizzying wordplay and detailed documentation of the Chicago street life. His words hit people in the gut, and that’s why the people feel him so much. So take a trip out west, 290, and check out his new video — and be sure to tell a friend about Lud.

The acquainted and well-seasoned team of The Cool Kids and Blended Babies have a storied history in the game together. I spent many a nights with Chuck and the Blended Babies in their Chicago home studio years ago. These dudes were nice enough to let an up and coming Andrew Barber sit in on mixes and preview unheard tracks. They played me so much stuff that would go on to become cult classics, crowd favorites and a slew of stuff that is still unreleased.

Those are very cherished memories from my time in the biz.

That said, it was only right these two factions came together for an official project. It only makes sense. Hell, they even gave us one helluva creative title with EV Zepplin. Brilliant.

Anyhoo, their official collabo project dropped today and you can now stream and buy it.  Actually — do both. This joint is knocking. Asher Roth, Boldy James, Alex Wiley, Buddy, Caleb James, A$ton Mathews and Nathan Santos are all involved.

This union is long overdue, but I’m just happy it happened. Partake below.

New Project: Wave Chapelle – W


Yesterday, we brought you an in-depth interview with the Milwaukee buck, Wave Chapelle. We sat down to chat about the local scene in the 414 and his new project W, which is now available for mass consumption. And as promised, the project is here, and it’s pretty brilliant.

At 11 tracks deep, W sets out to further cement Wave’s place in the rap game, and help put his hometown on the map. The W stands for the ultimate W, the win; and he’s about to see a handful of W’s after the world gets a crack at this. No losses over here. We are the champions, and enter the winners circle below.
