Naledge teamed up with DJ RTC to put together his latest endeavor, Welcome to Brainiac Society Vol. 1. The mixtape is a collection of new, unreleased and exclusive material from Naledge and his brain trust.
“Welcome To Brainiac Society is a compilation or collection of music that I like, and that I might have made or contributed to. There’s no real rhyme or reason to it. I think a lot of people got confused when I started repping Brainiac Society as my crew or my label cause I think a lot of people took it as a separation from Kidz In The Hall, which is not what it is. It’s just me giving a platform to people that I like, and I want it to be looked at moreso as a Native Tongues type of thing than as a Bad Boy type of thing. It’s just a group of people that make dope music and appreciate the artistry of Hip Hop and doesn’t have to necessarily mean they are rappers. They can sing, they can make beats, DJ, whatever. It’s about the creative renaissance that’s going on within Hip Hop all over the nation. These are people that I met in my travels who I feel are dope and they inspire me. We just get together and we collectively make art…It’s also a platform for me to put out Fooch who is my artist. It’s no departure from Kidz In The Hall. Me and Double O are such creative beings in general, that we don’t know how to operate without 30 things going on at once. We’re very much multi-taskers and we’ve always been that way. We try to have our hands in everything.”

Skooda Chose’s debut mixtape, Top 5 Material – Hosted by DJ Green Lantern, will literally be dropping any minute now. However, prior to the full leak, check out the intro – here Skooda makes it very clear, for those who have never seen Jay-Z’s documentary, Backstage, why he’s always pictured with Apple Jacks.
He actually freestyles on this one. No written rhymes.

You have to honor Traxster, my friends. Not only due to the fact that he’s a Godfather of Chicago hip-hop, but also because whenever he starts a new website, he releases a free album full of quality material. So to kick off his new site CWALMOB.com , Traxster drops a 15-track album featuring previously unrelased material from E-Dub, Johnny P, Big Rap, Dun Deal, Dawreck and more.
You know this guy is going to happy about it.
Sidenote: I heard that Traxster had an album release party at Giovanni’s on Saturday night where he, Payroll and a few others performed. Did anyone go to that?

So my boy Jesse Lee a.k.a. Mr. Dub Frequency hooked up with imeem.com for the Creme De La Creme mixtape. The mixtape in its entirety drops this coming Tuesday (Sept 23rd) online, and will be physically available at the Creme De La Creme events in Chicago, LA and NYC.
The mixtape itself features new and exclusive material from Chicago heavyweights such as The Cool Kids, Mic Terror, Kidz In The Hall, Hollywood Holt and the homie Vyle.
The track Jesse was nice enough to leak to me is the Brian “All Day” Miller (what up B?) produced “Get Off” performed by the Mic Terrorist. No matter how hard I tried, I was only able to make this stream only.
