I don’t know if that’s a junkyard, a car, a Transformer, a purple snake, a spare tire [donut] – but I do see the skyline.

The 5th City Bandits are: Versatile, Remedi and Bolster.

I had a chance to open up for Really Doe at The Wild Hare on Tuesday.  I took some footage of my performance, Enjoy. The lesson that I learned from this show is that I have to pay dues no matter how good  or bad the situation is.

Chicago-duo The Suppliers landed Gucci Mane for their debut single, “Wanda”. Not sure if “Wanda” has anything with In Living Color or not, but hey, they got a nice 16 from Gucci.

The accompanying video has some footage of The Suppliers recent photo shoot with Nick Brazinsky.  Be on the lookout for more music from The Suppliers coming soon, including features with L.E.P., Yung LA, Hot Dolla, Chip Tha Ripper and MarVo.

Wildstyle (of Crucial Conflict) – "Getcha Money"

| September 24, 2009 | 0 Comments

Wildstyle of the legendary Chicago hip hop quartet, Crucial Conflict, quietly dropped his debut solo album earlier this week, entitled That Was Then This Is Now.  It’s currently available on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody and other online retailers.  If you’re looking for a hard copy [II], you can head over to his website and purchase a disc for $9.99.

This is super independent, so be sure to support one of the Chi’s originators and cop one.  Self-produced, self-promoted and self-performed.

Mike Flo & SC – "Back 2 Basics"

I’m proud to announce a new project involving two of Chicago’s dopest talents: Mike Flo and SC.  It’s going to be on some ‘he’s the DJ producer, I’m the rapper’ type ish, but believe it will bring out the best in these two beasts.

The project is currently untitled, and this is the first official leak.
