Chicago was named as one of Hip-Hop’s nine “Hottest Cities of 2010” in Benzino and Dave Mays’ new publication (do they still own it?) Hip Hop Weekly.
Also within the issue, they hand pick 5 of the Chi’s rising stars and label them next to blow. The winners are: John Blu, Co Still, MarVo, Bo Deal (and the Killa Klan) and Hot 2 Def (a.k.a. Dat Boy Hot).
Vo’s camp was nice enough to scan the excerpt, so lets highlight his piece:
“MarVo is the ideal Hip-Hop Artist. He’s a rarity, a hardcore rapper that transcends the line between Hip-Hop and Rap, winning respect from hustlers and backpackers alike. Fresh off his “CHANGE” Mixtape hosted by DJ Don Cannon and DJ Head Debiase (The Aphilliates), Vo is back in the lab working on his “Just Add Water” Mixtape with Mz.Stylez (Shade 45/Sirius) and his highly anticipated “V For Vendetta: Gangsta Grillz” Mixtape with DJ Drama. Most notably MarVo co-wrote “Sex Room” which is Ludacris’ latest single with Trey Songz”
