Although the Bulls season is over, the legs on Carlos Boozer’s rap record “Winning Streak” are not.  Here we have some behind-the-scenes footage of #BoozerBars in the studio crafting his first and only hit record.  Major FAIL points to the in-studio producer who said they need to recruit Twista for some of that “Southside, Chicago” flavor.  Okay, dude.

| May 29, 2011 | 12 Comments

One of Chicago’s rising stars, Bo Deal, has recently found himself in the middle of controversy, due to some song lyrics that could be perceived as shots fired.  In this interview (Bo made exclusively for FSD), Bo opens up about his past beef with Twista, talks about the alleged tension between himself and the L.E.P. Bogus Boys (and possibly the Cool Kids), and explains some lyrics that might’ve been taken the wrong way.  Shout out to Bo for clearing the air, and keeping it 100% with his fans and the people of Chicago.
