Onis – Est. 86

| November 29, 2011 | 2 Comments

Stay Humble artist Onis drops yet another joint from his On The Contrary Vol. 2 mixtape, which is due out in two weeks. I’m a sucker for anything that samples Patrice Rushen’s “Where There Is Love,” most notably the Mobb’s “Temperatures Rising.”

In other Onis news, the young MC has been gaining a lot of attention from various White Sox players over his ode to their esteemed fitteds. Check out the video for “White Sox Fitted” here and see the chatter form the various Sox players below the cut.

This record just further cements that there’s something serious going on with Trax and Mikkey right now. Looking forward to hearing what they’ve been cooking up.

King Louie f/ 2 Chainz & Red Cafe – Too Cool (Remix)

| November 28, 2011 | 17 Comments

Quite possibly the hottest record in Chicago gets the remix treatment, featuring verses from 2 Chainz and Red Cafe. You’ve heard the original, now Louie takes it up a few notches with some help from the East Coast and Down South.

Today also marks the announcement of Louie singing with John Monopoly & Larro Wilson’s Lawless Inc. indie label, which will release Louie’s Dope & Shrimp album in January in conjunction with FLY ENT.

From the Chicago Tribune to Pitchfork, everyone is talking about Louie, so if you’re late, you may want to jump on the bandwagon now.
