Premiere: Stream LyriQ The Misfit’s new album ‘Indigo Soul’

Rising Chicago artist, LyriQ The Misfit, makes his FSD debut today with the world premiere of his Indigo Soul project. Yes, this is the first taste the world will get of LyriQ and his talent.

My guy Kevin Coval recently put me on to LyriQ, and needless to say I was impressed with what I heard. So much in fact that I asked for that premiere. Glad I did — and glad he did. Funny how the world works. So without further ado, we have 10 brand new tracks from Chicago’s very own misfit below. If this is your first time hearing this, you are about to experience something so cold, man. Indigo Soul.

Bump J drops his official first release “Good 2 Be Home” produced by Cardo

Produced by Cardo

It’s been a long time coming. Eight years to be exact. And after damn near a decade, Bumpy Johnson has made his official return to the mic. We can all rejoice. No joke, I’ve been living off Bump’s leftovers from 10+ years ago, so it’s a blessing to finally have our hands on some of that new, new. Dinner Time was the last tape he dropped, but we have a new meal on the way. To keep it 100, I have almost every single song he’s ever recorded. I mean, I’m sure there’s a few I don’t have, but I’ve exhausted my efforts to build the definitive and most complete Bump catalog of any fan. Today, however, the legacy continues and we can pick up where we left off.

A few weeks ago, Bump emerged with a verse on Ty Money’s acclaimed “Yes or No” track from Cinco De Money 3, but “Good 2 Be Home” is his first official release on the solo tip — not just a verse. The first new full Bump song we’ve heard since “Letter 2 My Competition” in 08/09.

When I visited Bump in the studio a few weeks ago, I was eager to hear what he’d been working on, and this is the first track he played. It gave me chills. His family was in the room, and they agreed. It means something. His words moved me and everyone in the room. I’m sure they’ll move you as well.

For the track, Bump connected with our homie, super producer Cardo, who is having one of the best years of his career in 2017. So it’s only right he reach back and show love to the Chi City O.G.

Welcome back, Bump. Here’s to more music coming soon, and a fruitful second act. As Ye once told us: “It feels good to be home, baby. It feels good to be home.”

Warhol.SS goes crazy on “12OZS”

Words by Aaron Navarro

Warhol.SS returns, in the wee hours of the morning, to drop this absolute heater “12OZS.” It’s probably up for debate, but this might be the hardest delivery young Warhol has given us thus far. Match that with a pulsing beat by F1LTHY, and he really has himself something with this one.

It’s only a matter of time until his long-awaited debut mixtape Chest Pains drops. But if “12OZS” is any indication, it’s probably a good idea to start preparing ourselves right now. Take a listen to “12OZS” below.
