Some new knock from one of Michigan’s finest, FoWL. Today, he’s back with another classic flip, and on this one he takes aim at the Cam and Kan-man classic “Down & Out.” It’s some of that good old fashioned “Royal Pomposity” in audio form.
Okay, so Valentines Day is over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate love every single day of the year. Log off if you disagree, ha! Anyhoo, Lud Foe was in the loving mood, so he cut loose a fluttering heart titled “Ghetto Love.” You gotta love it.
Fresh off his three Grammy wins and announcing a nationwide stadium tour, Chance’s full ESPN cover story with Jimmy Butler has dropped. He’s everywhere right now. Crazy, right?
In a sit down with Justin Tinsley, Chano and Jimmy talk about hoops, hip-hop and hope in Chicago. It’s a very dope interview and a music read/watch. You can check out an excerpt below and read the full piece here. I’ve included a number of video clips below courtesy of ESPN.
TINSLEY: Whether you like it or not, you two are the new faces of Chicago. What’s that responsibility like?
BUTLER: It’s cool because every morning, you just have to continue to be who you are, do what you did to get you to this point. That’s the way I look at it. And in this city, that’s all anybody ever asks of you is to work hard. When you bring that, they love you.
CHANCE: I don’t know how Jimmy does it ’cause he’s not from here, but that’s a lot of weight, right? Just carrying, like, the reality of it, the aggression and, like you said, the hardworking attitude. But also being a person of influence in a city that’s so small, it’s so communal, everybody knows each other here. I was raised here, and it’s been kind of a fishbowl thing—I’ve swam around a bunch of times. But I feel very comfortable, and it’s good to still live here.
