Juicy J and A$AP Ferg’s Stay Trippy tour stopped in the Chi last night for a sold-out show at Metro and it wasn’t one to miss. In case you did, here’s a little footage of what took place.
Check out Ferg running through “Work” (and the remix) up top and hit the jump to catch Juicy J starting his set with “Show Out”.

More music from the GMG artist’s Sho Frazier mixtape. Look for the reloaded version of the tape to impact at some point this summer.
Sure, it’s a holiday weekend, but everyday is a holiday (word to Witchdoctor) when you’re Kanye West. So in honor of Memoriam Weekend, Kanye is taking his projection show on the road yet again for screenings in 12 new cities across the U.S. of A.
If you’re located in San Diego, Tucson, Phoenix, Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Atlanta, Jacksonville, Miami, Savannah, Baltimore or Philadelphia then you’re in one of the lucky spots where the Yeezy train will be stopping.
What will he be premiering? “New Slaves”? Or will it be something else this time? Well, show up and find out for yourself. Find set times and locations right here.
It’s that time of the week again. Do remember, that if the song dropped anytime since last Friday (5/17) it’s eligible for the list. Now we aren’t saying these are the BEST songs of the week, but they are the staffs faves and joints you can catch us bumping in the office.
Chicago’s own Da Internz provide the backdrop for Luda and CB’s “Dancin’ Dirty”, from Luda’s freshly released IDGAF mixtape. Don’t be surprised if you hear this joint on a radio or in a club near you. Check it out below.

FSD Beats sets out to build awareness of Chicago’s top up-and-coming producers — something we have an abundance of. No need to seek other cities for your sound, we have the cream of the crop right here.
We’ll be offering up new instrumentals from rising producers weekly — free of charge — for you to rock over (and so you’ll stop rapping over “No New Friends”). If you like what you hear, please reach out to the beatsmiths to inquire about how you can work with them in the future. Got it? Utilization is key.
Tomorrow, the good people at Villa kick of their 90 Days Of Wild summer series with the #BeWild Block Party. From 2-5pm, two DJs will be competing for titles at two different Villa locations in Chicago. There will be three rounds with label execs judging the contests.
The three rounds consist of a 90s-2000 mix, a sneaker mix and a memorial mix. Sounds dope, right? You can either stop by the 91st & Commercial location for Mustafa Rocks vs. DJ Roc or the 87th & Cottage Grove location for Mile High vs. DJ Word. Either way, it’s something you don’t want to miss. The winner of said contest will be anointed the official Villa DJ. Check out the flyer above for more details.
