This joint was shot last week in NYC, while GLC was taking meetings and exploring options for his next project, which is produced in large by Chicago’s Blended Babies. While in NYC, GLC hosted a UStream session (with Don C and Ibn Jasper present) where he hinted that a deal was in the works with Dame Dash’s BluRoc imprint, and this video and the big “Coming Soon” only reinforces that. Personally, I’d like to see that happen. Prior to that project, GL is dropping a mixtape entitled The Ism Features, Vol. 1 – The Fellowship, which is pretty much self explanatory.
No Twista in the clip, ladies and gentlemen. More news on the Ism coming soon.

The influx of songs about cannabis sativa continue (as if they ever really went anywhere since ’92) to pour in, with City Boy and Mush trading bars about one of their favorite extracurricular activities. And it ain’t the Chess club.
In other City Boy news, in case you missed my background skin, or the 40 billboards across the City, or the full page ad in XXL this month, City Boy currently has a single out with the R, entitled “City Boy”. The track is starting to pick up steam across the country, with City winning a contest that’s gotten him added to radio stations/websites across the country. Hit the jump to check and see if he’s running in your city.
Full video drops Wednesday. Directed by Davy Greenberg for Elephilms.
I’ve seen a rough cut, and yes, you can expect to see some b00bies. Act like you’ve been somewhere before.

You think Ag gives a damn about a Grammy? Well, one day after the telecast, he drops the video for “Grammy’s”, which believe it or not, really doesn’t have much to do with the awards show.
Film School drops 2/21/11.
One volume just wasn’t enough, so Mic Terror and Mattboy White return with the second installment of The Late Pass, featuring rare, unheard or under the radar music from the Microphone Terrorist. The project features work and appearances with Travie McCoy, Chuck Inglish, Million $ Mano, Donnis, Gzus Piece and more.
Hit the jump for the tracklist and DL link. You can pick up part one here.
Words by Jaycee:
Fake Shore Drive and Jaycee are giving Chicago back to Chicago with the Welcome to Chicago series. The first volume is called, “The Foundation.” This volume, along with the entire series, features full, complete, non-mixed, non DJ, and no tag tracks. These songs are the hard to find/rare Chicago classics that even some of the contributing artists don’t have.
Many of these tracks will be the original hits that put these artists on the map or their first very first song. If you do not hear your favorite artist or your favorite artists first hit, please reserve the hate until volume 5. As always, download, listen, and ride…

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, @nHarlem catches up with YP to discuss “Love”. Groupie love, Halle Berry love and offers love advice to the ladies. Who knew a four letter word meant so much?
Later, @nharlem catches up with Bighomie DOE to discuss absolutely nothing “Love”-related. Ha! Hit the jump for that.
Whether you know it or not, Brian “All Day” Miller is behind some of your favorite hip-hop records. In part one of his Proper Villains series, we found All Day getting back to his Chicago roots and showcasing some of his most noteworthy work with artists from the Go, now we find him in a New York State of Mind. All Day’s production credits read like a hip-hop who’s who, and The Manhattan Job features some of his work with Shyne, Foxy Brown, Talib Kweli, Ali Vegas, Memphis Bleek, Cam’Ron, Dipset, Kay Slay, Geda K (remember him?), Freeway, Beanie Sigel, Lil Wayne, Styles P, Rick Ross and more. That’s like the damn Source Awards in one zip file. Brian was also nice to FINALLY liberate the instrumentals for Cam’s “Down & Out” and “Dipset Forever”, which have been unavailable until now. A lot of these tracks were co-produced by Kanye West, so hit the jump and see what made the cut.
I got with All Day for some words and he had this to say:
if anything, i would say that the point of the Proper.Villains jobs was to liberate music that’s been sitting idle in my hard drives,initially… but it turned into a “not resting on your laurels” ideal~at the same time shedding light on records I’ve done and/or contributed to..In the meantime it was fun to put together~We come from a cool ass era in hiphop ..in the end it’s only music…enjoy..
