Chicago vet, Twone Gabz, who is now going as Antwone Muhammad, dropped by WGCI’s Tony Sco & The Morning Riot to have a serious talk about his ongoing battle with breast cancer. Thankfully Twone’s treatment has been successful and his recovery is positive, so now he’s on the path to spread the message and let people know of his struggle. We’re glad to hear Twone is better. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: #FuckCancer.

Chi Hoover has a couple of CHOICE appearances on King Louie’s VERY dope new mixtape, Tony. After making a splash on there, Chi Hoover returns with this new album cut, “I Might,” which will land on his own solo set, which is on track to impact later this summer. You might wanna press play on “I Might” above.
Another day, another dollar, another EP from Ill Legit. Seriously, he gives you so much free music you should cut the man a check. Or perhaps just buy this project from him right here. Five new tracks, with extra bars from Black Matt, Nathan Knew, IceFace and more. Listen to superb rapping over choice production below.

This might be my favorite of the lot of the Longshot Leak series. Over an Aretha sample, he talks love, life and relationships. But mostly love and being loved. This is leak 6 of 15, so we’re still not even halfway through yet Long’s series yet. Hopefully he keeps up the pace, because his drops have been hot.
