New Album: SD – Truly Blessed [Stream]

| November 17, 2014 | 0 Comments


Former GBE standout and one of the unsung talents of the Chicago Drill movement, SD, has dropped his official debut album, Truly Blessed, via iHipHop Distribution. The album is available for purchase now, but the label has been nice enough to offer up a stream so you can try before you buy.

I’m definitely looking forward to hearing what SD did here because his single “Circles” is one of my favorites of recent memory. Check out SD making a go at it for dolo below — and be sure to thank him for your daily blessing.

Recently, Bump J called into Raw TV Radio to chat with the gang over there. It’s one of the first live radio interviews he’s ever done, and it’s nice to hear the Chief’s voice. He talks about his current situation, his plans for the future, the state of Chicago rap, the younger generation and much more.

Rukus100 and Aceito Banks also get some shine here. A dope watch/listen.

Sasha Go Hard has carefully built her career brick by brick, and she’ll be damned if you huff, puff and blow her house down. On “Bricks” she gets back to basics and tears up the mic for over three minutes, to silence critics, naysayers and haters. She has some things to get off her chest, so pay close attention. No bricking over here.

Video: Ty Dolla $ign Brings Out Spenzo In Chicago

| November 17, 2014 | 0 Comments

Last week’s Ty Dolla $ign show at Bottom Lounge was quite the affair. Not only did hometown hero, Lil Bibby, open up the show, but there was an all-star cast of guests and stars in attendance. From Chance The Rapper to Jeremih to Lil Herb and DJ Drama — the place was absolutely rocking. But one of the most well received cameos of the night was from the young gun, Spenzo, who turned the crowd out when he touched the stage. He did a few of his hits and really took the energy through the roof. Don’t believe me? Just watch.

Chance The Rapper headlined night 15 of Red Bull Sound Select’s 30 Days In L.A. at the House Of Blues last night and it was just as amazing as you’d imagine. The sold-out event was packed early with a line down the street and tons of fans excited to see Chano do his thing. No surprise there, but Chance did have a few tricks up his sleeve.

Chance delivered an amazing set, which included a preview of a couple of new records and even brought out a special guest. Before closing out his set, Chance decided to surprise the audience and bring out Big Sean to perform his single “IDFWU”. Check out what went down in the clip above.

Video: White Gzus f/ Mano – Pimp On

| November 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

Directed by Seuss Leroy

One of my favorite joints off the undeniably dope, and insanely slept on White Gzus project finally gets the video treatment. With Mano aiding and assisting, Blanco Caine and Gzus Piece show the world a little piece of Chicago that is rarely seen: a side that prefers Dobbs hats, furs and Cadillacs.

“Pimp On” features a top notch flip of a PsychoDrama classic, and finds the Treated Crew stackin’ and mackin’ in downtown Chicago. No po pimps over here. Bend a few corners with the bad boys in black above.

Grab Stackin’ N Mackin’ Vol. 1 right here. Trust me, you’ll like it.
