Think Full Force in House Party. Think #18 on Beg For Mercy. That’s what Tadoe is talking about here. Detractors be damned.

Another crispy video from Pavy. This one finds Pavy tackling the issues of love and loss and bad decision making. Dealing with all of the above can be some of the hardest life pills to swallow. This one is for Sha, wherever she may be. But you know, it’s better to have loved and lost than…Well, you know the rest.

This is super cold. Martin collabs with MMG and Chi City representer Rockie Fresh on “Estate.” Larger stakes on large estates, indeed. Martin continues to elevate the sound of his production and on “Estate,” and he proves that he’s getting better by the day. This kid is a force to be reckoned with — but we already told you that. Also, shouts to Rockie for blessing him with this inspired bars. Grab it below.
Look for Martin’s new project to drop later this year and as of now the sole features are Rockie and Casey Veggies.
It’s Tuesday, so you know what that means — time for a brand new TreeMix from MC Tree. This time around, Tree takes Rae Sremmurd’s “No Type” (which is currently one of my favorite songs) and puts his own touch on it.
Missed last week’s drop? Check it here — after you press play on “No Type” below, of course.

Crackaveli is finally set to release his Kickin It Wit TW [Trill Withers] project this Thursday (September 11th), so for everyone fiending for that drop you’ll soon be satisfied. To ramp up promo for said project, Crack has decided to drop a new video, this one featuring Big Ish Lo of the Mayhem Machine and titled “Rose Gold On My Two Fangs.” We got a sneak peek of the clip last night, and can verify that it’s arguably Crack’s best visual to date. Of course that’s debatable, but I truly believe it’s the best representation of the smoked out space age hippie we’ve seen yet.
How many of you are ready to party with Crack now? Raise your hand, insert your fangs, then push play.

One of Chicago’s dopest talents, BJ The Chicago Kid, pays homage to “King Heroin” by James Brown with this new visual endeavor you see above. Can we get a new BJ project already? He’s been heating up recently, seemingly dropping new content weekly, so it seems that something new is on the horizon. Hopefully so. It’s inevitable.
OG Mattress Co. linked with The Kickdrums to remix and rework a handful of joints, and package them together as a new EP. It’s chock full of solid collabos with a wide array of artists, with one of them being Frank Leone. You can hear what the Kicks and Frankie put together below.
The project is a collection of official remixes and remakes of songs that Alex (the Kickdrums) came to us to see if we could pair them with some new vocalists. We sifted through our entire database and paired these records with people who we felt would match the same energies. After which we brought the verses back to Alex where he tweaked the vocals, and beats and finally here we are.

Two certified legends connect for this rap game “Dear John” letter.

Good music for a great cause.
