New Project: Smino – S!CK S!CK S!CK


I just got around to checking out this new EP from St. Louis native and Chicago resident, Smino, which was entirely produced by Monte Booker. Everything Monte has touched recently has turned to gold, and what they put together here is excellent as well. My only gripe is that it’s only three songs deep.

No question there’s some serious chemistry here, and if you’re new to Smino like I was, this joint is the perfect introductory piece. It comes as a suggested listen. Grab S!CK S!CK S!CK below.

New Project: King Louie – 6 God Tony


In Toronto, the 6 God is Drake. When you come to the Chi, it’s Tony. Simple as that. And today, Tony Soprano a.k.a. King Louie drops off a brand new 6-song EP out of the blue. As we’ve told you in the past few Louie posts, he’s been on a roll with his last few releases. All bangers. All in the Tony spirit. All fire.

He’s feeling in the giving mood today, so out of the blue he’s blessed the congregation with 6 God Tony. 6 brand new songs from the culprit at the pulpit. A true blessing from the Chicago overlord. 6 new songs on October 6th at 6pm from the Chi’s 6 God. The synergy is heaven sent.

Get your daily blessing below. Thank you MUBU Gods.
