Something new from the Chief and the Mayor. I know Crucial Conflict is working on The Final Tic 2, but when can we get a Cold Hard solo album?
MC/producer double threat Gaggie drops off his new mixtape, Politickin’ Wit Tha Politicianz, which has been in the works for a year or so.
J-Hood, Young Diesel, Skooda Chose, Co-Still all make appearances. Hit the jump for the goods.
Redeye Chicago’s Ernest Wilkins caught up with everyone’s favorite driller, King Louie, for season 2 of Redeye and Remix Chicago’s A Beer With series. The two discuss a few things including how Ernest became familiar with Louie (Word to Andrew. Ha!), Dope & Shrimp, the scene here in Chicago and who he plans to work with among other things. One thing’s for sure, whatever track’s playing at the 1:17 sounds tough.
Directed by Court Dunn.
For the latest installment of 2DopeBoyz & Restless Films’ VS. series, Com recites Nasir’s verse from “Life’s A Bitch”. The Dreamer, The Believer drops December 20th.
If you haven’t done so yet, be sure to check out Matt’s Burn One For Me EP produced entirely by DJ Burn One. Definitely worth a listen or two.
Count & Moonie were tapped by Crooks & Castles to be the face of their 2011 Holiday line. The above advertisement has been popping up in various magazines, including Respect, which is where the scan is from.
Keep an eye out for additional work with Crooks & Castles in the coming weeks.
I saw Twitter buzzing about this record being all over WGCI last weekend–now hear it for yourself. Also, there’s a new Vo project slated for the top of the year…
Just in case you weren’t tuned into 107.5 WGCI over the extended Thanksgiving weekend, there was a “Chicago Artist MixShow Takeover” of sorts. DJ Moondawg, DJ Phantom and DJ 331/3 burned up the airwaves withMarVo’s new single “I Really Do This” (produced by LoKey) from Wednesday to Sunday, and DJ Phantom even included it in the mix for the Morning Show on Monday. “I Really Do This” is the single from MarVo’s “Crack VoCaine” Mixtape hosted by DJ Moondawg and DJ Victoriouz dropping on 1-2-12. It’s Vo!
