If you hadn’t heard, Chicago media powerhouse, Loni Swain, has a new weekly show on CLTV called, what else, The Loni Swain Show. She’s a few episodes in at this point, and during the episode that ran this past weekend, she featured a segment on Chicago emcee, Add-2. Add then performed his track “Stop Play Rewind” for the cameras.
Loni’s show airs weekly on CLTV, Sunday’s at 12am. Be sure to tune in each and every week, as you just might catch some familiar FSD faces on there in the near future. For now, however, check out Add doing his thing.

We gave you the song just moments ago, but now the video is here and it’s next level per usual. Mick continues to raise the bar and elevate the buzz for Wave[s] with this super official video for “P’s & Q’s.” This joint is too vivid.
This weekend, Stefan Ponce brings his Stefan Ponce and Friends series to the big stage. Bottom Lounge to be exact. Stefan never disappoints, so just know he has a lot of big surprises in store for Friday night’s show. Trust us when we tell you this is something you WON’T want to miss.
“Stefan Ponce has given Chance the Rapper, Vic Mensa and Childish Gambino their biggest hits,” says THE FADER. The Grammys agreed in 2015, granting Stefan double-nominations for the Warner Chappell signee’s production skills. Stefan Ponce most recently lent his magic touch to producing the new, cinematic, larger-than-life Kanye West / Vic Mensa track “U Mad,” which West and Mensa debuted this spring at a surprise show in London, breaking the Internet with its fury.
Now, the 24-year-old native Chicagoan is stepping out from behind the boards and into the spotlight with his debut solo show “Stefan Ponce & Friends Live” happening Friday, May 29th at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago.
Stefan’s known for drawing talent and tastemakers like Vashtie, Hannibal Buress and Chance the Rapper to his popular residency at East Room, Stefan will be turning up the volume at the Bottom Lounge next week and, for the first time, giving a chance for the 17+ crowd to participate in the action. “I love the New York party scene and I love how very popular DJs host their own parties that cater to their culture & friends, I wanted to bring that atmosphere to Chicago,” says Ponce.

However, today we have 1 pair of tickets to giveaway to 1 lucky FSD reader.
Last week, an Alex Wiley track popped up on various blogs and sites that was presented as a new track. But it wasn’t even a new track, it was just a track that’d been out with an open verse. It even kinda told you that in the title. But I digress.
Over the weekend, Alex really did drop a new track (which also says so in the title) called “Track One.” It features Mr. Wiley getting busy over some wicked guitar riffs (I think that’s how you say it.) Get down to business with “Track One” below.

I don’t know if you’ve heard the news or not, but we’re doing a show with Red Bull and Lil Herb on June 11th at Reggies. It’s only $3 with RSVP right now. I suggest you do that now. Hurt Everybody and Netherfriends are also on the bill.
But back to the lecture at hand — a Herb loosie has just surfaced. It’s called “That Sack” and the soundscape was handled by DJ L. No word on its origin or where it will land, but cot damn if this doesn’t knock. Check it out below and be sure keep an open eye for Herb’s new project, Ballin Like I’m Kobe, due out later this year. And don’t forget to RSVP for our show with Herb on 6/11.
