It’s Thanksgiving, and guess who’s coming over to your Mom’s house for a plate? Fredo and Keef, that’s who. Better make sure you leave some food for them, as today they come bearing gifts: brand new music. This is the first shot from their upcoming mixtape — and it’s not pumpkin pie.
On Glovember 28th, Chief Keef drops his latest mixtape of 2014, Mansion Musick. The project is primarily produced by Young Chop and Chief Keef, with assistance from Metro Boomin, Trap Money Benny and KE on the Track.
Tonight we get the official cover art and track list. 21 new tracks which will be ready for consumption on Black Friday. See you then.

One of the rising young talents of Chicago, Malcolm London, has some poetry with a message that comes just in time for this week’s world-stopping event. Very strong visual here, which was created in conjunction with Enstrumental Clothing. Tell a friend to tell a friend.
I’ll let him take the floor:
Malcolm London, called the Gil-Scott Heron of this generation by Cornel West, is an internationally recognized poet, activist, and educator.
On 11/08/2014, Malcolm was 1 of 8 young people from Chicago representing the “We Charge Genocide” organization that traveled as a delegation to Geneva, Switzerland to present a report on Chicago Police violence to the United Nations Committee Against Torture at their 53rd Session in Geneva, during which the U.S. was under full review. The group submitted their report to the Committee Against Torture during the hour reserved for CIvil Rights groups. The report detailed data collected on the experience of young people of color in marginalized communities most targeted by police violence in Chicago.
Related to the matter, Drew from Enstrumental Clothing @enstrumental made a creative contribution and donation to this cause, in the form of a shirt, to address the 2014 killing of Dominique Franklin (“DAMO”) by the CPD … A statement/concept derived from the “Jake The Snake” shirt (“The Chicago Police Dept. Killed (“Assassinated”) Fred Hampton.”) created by Enstrumental Clothing in 2010.

With cameos from Lil Durk and the Treated Crew, P. Plus makes his FSD debut with this turnt up duet with Ms. Drillary Clinton herself, Katie Got Bandz. If you’re not rocking with this one, boy (or girl) bye.

Obviously you’ve heard Em’s crazy ode to his hometown, “Detroit Vs. Everybody,” which featured Danny Brown, Big Sean, Trick Trick, DeJ and Royce, right? Well, DeJ was on the record, and offers up a part two of sorts featuring her IBGM crew. This time she brings Tone and Oba along for the ride.
Lots of city pride here. After you watch the visual above, grab the mp3 right here. Enjoy.
Back in town for Thanksgiving, Chano dropped by 107.5 WGCI’s Tony Sco & The Morning Riot to chat with the crew about a number of topics. Their conversation consists of Chance’s new single with Donnie Trumpet and the Social Experiment (check out “Sunday Candy” here), the Ferguson verdict and aftermath, as well as Chance’s hopes to work with Kirk Franklin.
Check it out above.
Somebody call a plumber, there’s been a massive leak. It appears a hacker has somehow, someway found their way into Taylor Bennett’s inbox and have snatched an EP’s worth of new and unreleased songs. The songs have been packaged together by said leaker under the title Freshman Year: First Semester, and were just posted to Reddit via a Soundcloud link. Damn.
Obviously Taylor is pressed about the leak, but he’s taking it in stride. Sometimes you just have to charge it to the game. Word to Silkk. Either way, enjoy this nice little Holiday surprise from Mr. Bennett — even if it wasn’t sanctioned.
Update: Taylor has now released via his Soundcloud for his fans. Check it below.
One of the Mitten’s finest, Bronze Nazareth, drops off the third installment of his Thought For Food series as a gift for the Giving. Longtime collaborators such as Willie The Kid and the Wisemen show up to show out, and give Bronze’s vivid soundscapes some additional life. Thought for Food, dog. Get a plate.
