Freddie Gibbs f/ G-Wiz & G.I. Fleezy – Dollaz

| October 12, 2014 | 0 Comments


Produced by Bizness Boi and Derelle Rideout.

First thing’s first: props to Curren$y for flipping that Down South Hustlers cover. If you’re not up on the Down South Hustlers double disc, I suggest you take it back to 1995 and check it out when you have a chance.

That being said, on this dope Jet Life compilation that dropped just moments ago, there’s an amazing Gibbs record featuring his ESGN family. This is some super smooth rider music. Fresh melodies and Big Lurch samples. Two thumbs up on this one. Grab “Dollaz” below and the full Jet Life tape right here.

With RMB on the beat, the Lord Gzus gives us this bouncy and bubbly new creep anthem. This one is for the creeps, strictly the creeps, and nothing but the creeps. It’s the creep vibe, and if this doesn’t get you through your Sunday with a smile on your face I’m not sure what will.

Creep commences below.

Back in August, FSD partnered with Colt 45 to bring the city the very dope (and free) Juicy J show at Reggies. King Louie was also on the bill and the event turned out to be one of the best and craziest of the year.

Last night, they had a similar show in Los Angeles, which featured the Juiceman, Little Debbie and Chicago’s own Fredo Santana. How did it go down? Well, you can now see what you missed above.

New EP: PhiLLaNOise [Phil G + Jay iLLa] – Feel The Noise

| October 10, 2014 | 0 Comments


Entirely produced by Rashid Hadee

Man, iLLa and Phil went ahead and dropped this album yesterday and didn’t even tell me. Shame on them. Ha! Anyhoo, this dynamic duo have been teasing the public with free treats over the past few months, but now offer up the project for purchase (you can stream before you buy, natch.) It’s only $5 so I urge you to spend a few bucks to support the cause.

You may be thinking this is some “He’s The DJ, I’m The Rapper” type EP, but actually both artists are rapping throughout. The album is seven songs deep, and was produced entirely by criminally underrated Chi City beatsmith, Rashid Hadee. It’s time to feel their noise below. What are you waiting for?
