Produced by Caleb James & Steve “Stone” Huff
Caleb James joins forces with his Pops, Steve “Stone” Huff, for this brand new joint, “Honesty & Loyalty.” This is one of the songs Caleb played for me from his new project, The Jones 2.0, and was my favorite of the bunch. Glad he’s sharing with the world prior to the release of the full album, which is due out this spring. You can expect 2.0 to feature production from No ID, Nez & Rio and Caleb himself. You loyal? You honest? Well, if you can check off both those boxes, this one is for you.
Check out this new leak below.
With a song this sinister, it’s only right that Chicago’s first lady, Shawnna, put her spin on it. Here she takes down the Rick Ross and Young Jeezy collabo “War Ready,” and we can attest she’s suited and booted for battle on this one.
In case you’ve been wondering what Shawnna’s been up to, she’s been insanely busy over the past few months. Among other things she’s currently working on a reality show co-starring Da Brat, Vita (Murder Inc.) and Babs Bunny. On top of that, she has a big indie deal on the table. And to cap that off, she’s just been named the brand ambassador for Chicago-based liquor company, Moskato Life. Busy to say the least.
Hear her battle anthem below.

A very dope new visual from songstress Via Rosa, with some vocal assistance from Jean Deaux. Voilà, magic.
Via’s project, DeathViaLove, is due out this coming spring, with production mostly handled by the mega-talented THEMpeople collective. Look for another new track to impact next week (3/10).

I.L simply calls this new video, “Freestyle.” His style isn’t free, though.
Produced by BoatHouse.
Jarred A.G returns with a new joint that he’s calling “Errands”, which won’t appear on his forthcoming CANVAS project. I normally dislike running errands, but this record goes. Check it out below.

Count brings us that good ol’ Count we’ve been waiting on. That gutter, grimy Count. Today he’s back with his first visual as a solo artist, “Stain,” and it’s as potent as you’d imagine. Don’t spill.
Look for his official solo album coming later this year.
Last week, The O’My’s performed in front of a packed crowd at their big headlining show at Chicago’s Metro. As you can see, the wall-to-wall crowd was rocking, and the roof damn near flew off once Chance Le Rapper emerged to the stage to perform his collabo with the group, “Wonder Years.” Watch the madness with the clip above, and shame on you if you missed it live.

With the release of Fresh Prince Of Darkness just one day away, Mic Terror decided to give everyone one last preview of what’s to come with “N.W.G.”. On “N.W.G.”, Mic touches on the gun violence in the city and how the media portrays it.
