Mixed by DJ O-Zone
Featuring a handful of brand new songs, as well as some Ortiz favorites.
Last night, Joey was in the Chi for a stop on his Free Agent Tour. In conjunction with his show at the Bassment, we dropped this nice little mixtape. Do yourself a favor and manifest.
Here is some footage of the event courtesy of Q Hef. Hit the jump for the tracklist & DL link.
Only in America can you diss SNL and then have them invite you to perform with 37 ballerinas on stage.
Pusha T is one of the luckiest dudes around right now.

In under two weeks, GLC’s Love, Life & Loyalty will be available online and in stores everywhere. In fact, you can ever pre-order it now on Amazon.com.
15 tracks featuring Bump J, Bun B, John Legend, Twista, BJ The Chicago Kid, Manfred Mann, Christian Rich and The Legendary Traxster. Hit the jump for the final tracklist.
Update: Final back cover now included. Looks like this IS a G.O.O.D. Music release after all.
Mikk linked with Clark Kent for a project Clark put together for Yokohama, Japan, titled Lafayette 7th Anniversary Mixtape. Mikk was the only Chicago artist recruited to be a part of the compilation, so check out how bars over the classic Premo instrumental. R.I.P. Guru.
I was first introduced to HiCLAS!’s music after he won the GLC “Clockin’ Lotsa Dollarz” contest last month. I was very surprised with what dude put together, and his come up doesn’t end with this leak off his Defy EP.
Sidenote: Casey Veggies is my new favorite rap name of today, and today only.
Kanye West feat. Kid Cudi, Pusha T, John Legend, Lloyd Banks & Ryan Leslie – Christian Dior Denim Flow
I think Kanye either puts names in a hat or draws straws for his lineup selections. And it turns out G.O.O.D. Friday wasn’t canceled after all. I’m not sure that wasn’t played. Either way, G.O.O.D. news.
One half of BLX link with Young General and Lee England Jr. for an ode to the choice fitted of Chicago’s Hip-Hop community – just in time for the end of their season.
Look for the Brandon “N2ition” Riley-directed video coming soon. Hit the jump for the press release.
Great cover art.
Last week, a few Kanye reference tracks leaked, and it was only a matter of time before someone colored in the picture. Leave it up to Sulai to share his interpretation of the Kanye West-produced beat, “Touch It”.

Cues up *Sunshine Anderson*
Not again. Apparently, some goon from the UK (who is trying way too hard with the slang) relieved Berg of his Batman chain. I hope this is a fake or a spoof, because you get no props for doing this. Talk about going to the well one too many times.
