I. Love. This. Song.
Here we have the No DJ version (sans Mr. MoonDawg) of this unreleased Twista and Kanye collabo. This track will not be featured Category F5, or officially released anywhere due to the Prince sample. I guess you’d have a better chance getting a clearance from Jesus Christ, himself.
Oh well, here it is, and as you can tell, I’m a big fan of it.
Kells is really on his Deebo steez right now. Here he puts the Teddy Riley cord in his mouth (pause?) and places a verse on the Young Moola anthem. You know, the one they’re playing ad naseum on the radio these days?
This is from Kells upcoming The Demo Tape with DJ Drama and DJ Skee
R. Kelly – “Every Girl (Remix)”
Again, props to Mr. X
I’m glad video is finally starting to surface from the DJ RTC & Friends set at the Do Division Street Festival yesterday. It was super dope. Mike 100s, Phil G, Really Doe, Project Mayhem, Primeridian, Mic Terror, Mick Luter, Mikkey Halsted, GLC and Rhymefest all performed (hosted by Hustle Simmons). It was really a who’s who of Chicago Hip Hop and the acts performed out of a Car Wash that was turned into a stage. Dope. And when Phil came out, the crowd got so nuts (zing?), check out his performance above.
Today marks what would have been Lamont Coleman’s 34th B-Day, so in celebration of his life and contributions to hip hop, Grant Parks releases Picture This: A Tribute to Big L (damn, it’s already been 10 years since he passed? WTF?) .
All tracks were produced by Grant Parks. Also, be sure to check out Grant Parks work on Grand Puba’s upcoming project, Retro Active.

I think we all know the tagline by now: Cold Hard for Mayor (*say it with me now*)
Anyhoo, this guy Disco interviews Cold Hard (of Crucial Conflict) in Garfield Park and they discuss his upcoming album Yakadoshis Atmosphere, talk Chicago hip hop and we hear what Crucial Conflict has on deck. Part 2 after the jump…
J. White from Lock Block Entertainment hooks up with Mikkey and Ju1 of the Replacementz and has them jump down on this joint.
Check out J. White tonight on DePaul Radio where they will be debuting this joint (or did I just do that?)
