The Kids (these days) dropped a super dope Davy Greenberg-helmed video a few weeks ago, and recently sold out a show at Reggie’s Rock Club. Rumor has it a few labels were even on hand at the show scoping out the young collective. It’s safe to say these Kids are on their way. Here we have some behind-the-scenes footage of the band making the magic happen.

Platinum producer and emcee Toxic is prepping the release of his upcoming project Chemical Imbalance. Here we have a leak from the project which features Tox giving listeners the birds eye view into the Chicago hip-hop scene. He starts from its humble beginnings and finishes off on what’s going on now. A lot of shout outs and love on this one. Check for Chemical Imbalance coming soon.

V-Dub and WBMZ Radio flip the bird at the corporate world with his latest mixtape, dedicated to the streets and the local artists of Chicago. And by the way, don’t piss V-Dub off or he’ll walk in your office chucking compact discs at you.
Hit the jump for the tracklist and DL link…
Jennifer’s back. After a short break, Ms. Hudson is ready to drop her sophomore album, I Remember Me, with this R. Kelly-produced track serving as the first single. MP3′s down bottom, but it’s stream only.
So last week after I downloaded the updated version of Mass Hysteria’s new single “Chicago”, I looked at my iTunes and noticed a startling amount of records named after the City we call home. And with the Bears going to the Super Bowl (that didn’t actually happen), I thought it would be cool to bundle them all up and post them on the site. Well, as we all know, the Bears took the big L (no Lamont Coleman), but I wasn’t going to let all these joints I upped go to waste, so enjoy them below.
I’m sure I’m missing a handful of records named after Chicago or Chi, so before you start screaming in the comments section about leaving something off (which I’m sure I did), send in my way and I’ll add to the list. I’m certain I’ve overlooked some songs and don’t have others in my iTunes library.
