Allow me to introduce you to Bari Allen. I first caught wind of the STLien-now-Chicagoan at the Radio DePaul showcase held in Lincoln Hall last month & I definitely liked what I heard. Look for Bari’s debut project to drop soon, but until then check out his latest single.
The youngin’ Legit returns with the first single from his new project, Coloring Outside The Lines, which features also Connoisseur. After hearing a few joints from it, I can attest that COTL will be a problem. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Vic Spencer makes his mixtape return with a project that his been in the works for quite some time now Go Louis. The mixtape is a collaborative effort between Chicago MC Vic and St. Louis producer Black Spade so the title was kind of a given. Vic had been a fan of Black Spade for a minute before he was blessed with an opportunity to rock a show with him a year or so ago in St. Louis. Upon linking for the show VI and Spade formed a bond in which Vic was essentially given the go ahead to choose from an insane collection of Spade beats. This mixtape’s progression spans pretty much from the completion of Vic Magorium’s Hip-Hop Emporium through the Disappointed mixtape sessions all the way up until about a week ago when the final verses were laid for the project. The tape contains 12 songs featuring both St. Louis and Chicago MCs such as Naledge, Tef Poe, Sulaiman, Nato Caliph, Vic Mensa and even Black Spade himself. Download the mixtape below and check the track list under the jump…
Vic Spencer x Black Spade – Go Louis
Oh hey, I have one pair of tickets to give away to the Yelawolf show next week at Reggie’s Rock Club. Next Thursday to be exact. Be the first person to answer the following question correctly and send an email to me with the subject YELAWOLF CHICAGO. Good luck.
I could sum up this post in two words: CUBANA LUST
Ha! But seriously, Parkay is back, and just wrapped his super glossy video for “Grindin” co-starring insanely popular video vixen Cubana Lust . Will Gates on the lens. Now that’s Forilla. You’ve been warned.
You knew it was only a matter of time before the property that once held the notorious Cabrini Green projects was repurposed into a shopping center or luxury residential buildings. Well, it appears that Target is the first of the big-box corps to chomp at the bit. The last tower is set to be demolished this summer, changing the entire face of the neighborhood. Could the Bullseye be taking over this iconic landmark?
In a sign that the redevelopment of Cabrini-Green is moving ahead, Target is considering building a store at the Chicago development that became synonymous with troubled public housing, according to a report.
Skyline Newspaper reported Wednesday that the Chicago Housing Authority is considering a land deal with Target at Cabrini-Green.
Neither the CHA nor Target would comment on the proposal, with Target spokesperson Sarah Van Nevel saying the Minneapolis-based retailer doesn’t publicly talk about projects that are more than a year away from opening.
