“This game is for the taking” – No I.D.
During one of Traxster’s recent Ustream studio sessions, No I.D. dropped by to talk about his new position as Executive Vice President of Def Jam Records. Both Traxster and Dion offered insight as to what this position of power means for Chicago. Here are a few choice quotes from this short and sweet interaction. I would’ve loved to have moderated this convo.
“Favor will kill you faster than a bullet” – No I.D.
“We don’t do favors, we do what people deserve” – Traxster
“I’m already reaching out, though. Y’all gonna see” – No I.D.
D2G & V.I.C. unleash their collaborative mixtape, Hard Bars. Produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by D.C. of Flyy City Media Group.
GemStones, YP, Que BILLAH, Sulaiman and JDP are all along for the ride. Hit the jump for tracklist and link. Go hard or go home.
All asterisks everything. No DJ.
Bo Deal has one hell of a rolodex, and on his latest offering, he proves this to be true. Chicago, NYC, Memphis and ATL all represent here. In case you missed Bo’s new mixtape, The Chicago Code 2, you can download it here now.
The brothers Mayhem were in NYC last week for CMJ, and performed at a Chicagocentric event at SOBs. Here we have some footage courtesy of Coodie & Chike for Creative Control.
The Boy Illi is catching some serious cosigns right now – most notably from legendary rap luminary Sway. Very cool to see this young man getting his just due.
Inhale Pt. 4: Horai coming soon.
Webbie’s profile has risen considerably as of late, after swiftly catching the boot from 106 & Park due to racy comments tossed towards host Rocsi.
Never the one to hold anything back, Webbie called into 107.5 WGCI’s Tony Sculfield and The Morning Riot to discuss the issue and take shots at Terrance J. Webbie even goes on to get a little racy with the Riot’s Nina Chantelle. Yikes!
Yo, Tweet’s still alive? Good for her. No shots, of course.
This “Unplugged” video was filmed at a special event held at CRC Studios in Chicago.
Syleena’s Chapter V: Underrated is in stores now.
