In 2009, I think Reno Chinati put out more projects than anyone in Chicago.  It seemed that almost monthly he was dropping mixtapes, albums or some kind of compilation.  Whether or not you like the material, you’ve gotta tip your hat to Reno for all of the hard work he put in while pursuing his dreams.  Which is brings me to the title of this project in particular, Dreams Come True.

Another joint over Jake One’s truthful beat.  Not sure why this one is getting burnt up currently.

R. Kelly feat. Rick Ross – "Put Some Money On It"

Wasn’t these two’s last collaboration “Speedin”?  You know, the video where Officer Ricky thinks it’s a good idea to jump off a bridge to avoid getting a speeding ticket?  Pretty smart if you ask me, no one wants those points going against your insurance rates.

Anyhoo, here’s a joint that didn’t make Untitled, and was produced by hit man Tricky Stewart.

Video: Mikkey Halsted + Twone Gabz + MarVo – "I'm Tired" Live

Last night at Twone Gabz birthday party (Writers Wednesday) at Tini Martini, Twone brought Mikkey & MarVo on stage to perform their Chi City banger “I’m Tired”, a song I don’t get tired of.

Happy B-Day Twone.

Video: Yukmouth feat. L.E.P. Bogus Boys – "211"

| December 30, 2009 | 0 Comments

The Bay and the Chi connect as one half of the Luniz teams up with the Bogus Boys for a song/video about the art of the home invasion. 

This is a dope yet unsuspecting collabo. Yukmouth’s double disc Thugged Out: The Albulation was my shit back in ’99, I can’t even lie.  This is a street single from Yuk’s upcoming project, Free At Last, due out in March.  I’d heard these two camps were getting together for a song, but I didn’t know a full video was involved.

QBeans + Max Payne – "NYE"

QBeans, of Nick-N-Beans fame, and Max Payne get together to create an ode to the Holiday that I wait until the very last minute to make plans for.  NYE is overrated anyway.  Bah humbug.

Bonus: Nick, Beans and Max Payne in the studio

Bo Deal feat. OJ Da Juiceman & Traye D – "Logged On"

| December 30, 2009 | 0 Comments

These guys have so much material together they could probably drop a full length album.   I mean Bo has more So Icey features then people actually on the label.  Unless he is on the label.  Hmmm….

This track will also be featured on Bo’s Sweeper mixtape. 

Also, the Traye D featured on this track is the Chi-Town crooner, not the guy from the Eastsidaz.

Word on the streets is that the Bogus Boys are currently out in NYC working on a video with the Capo himself, Jim Jones.


Joe Scudda feat. Freddie Gibbs, Naledge & Mistah F.A.B. – "Trunk Rattle (Remix)"

Khrysis on the boards.

Damn, that’s a solid lineup.  A nice exclusive courtesy of the Smoking Section that will be featured on their upcoming project with Joe Scudda and the Hall of Justice Not Your Average Joe EP, dropping January 11th 2010.
