Next time you see KAMI, ask him how many times I asked him when his album was dropping. Probably close to 40 times. But today, that question is now irrelevant as his long-awaited album, Just Like The Movies, is finally here. Executive Produced by Knox Fortune, the album is a walk on the wild side that’s musically rich and vocally potent. Pound for pound, KAMI is one of the best rappers in the Chi, but I’m guessing he’s more on the singing tip on this one. Fuck it, he can do what he wants.
The SaveMoney commando gives us 13 new tracks featuring Joey Purp, Vic Mensa, Towkio, Sterling Hayes and Knox, and is largely produced by Mr. Fortune himself. The wait is over, so celebrate this monumental occasion below.
Tonight, KAMI is having TWO parties in Chicago in celebration of the release. He’ll be taking over Stefan Ponce’s STAF and East Room, as well as doing a private party. You can RSVP for that today starting at NOON CST right here.

We’ve been waiting on Z to drop a proper follow up to his 2013 double project Heroin Muzik / Rich B4 Rap for four years now. That’s like 20 years in rap years. Well, on May 10th it appears he’s making his triumphant return with an brand new 11-song project called Heroin Bag. Z begins his campaign today with the split video for “Chess / Chiraq Mogul.” The video is below as is the cover art + track list for Heroin Bag.
Z back? See for yourself.Andrew Barber 0
It’s finally here — the new EP from one of the hottest young artists rising out of the Midwest: Kweku Collins. His last project, Nat Love, was universally loved and acclaimed, and I know his fans and supporters have been clamoring for some new work. Well, tonight he reemerges with this carefully crafted nine-song outing. It’s Grey, but there’s no grey area here. Believe that. Screw The Grey Album, this is the Grey album we’re rolling with from now on. Ha!
