Fake, fugazi, fufu — whatever term you prefer, Mister Montana isn’t into the people around him being it. I’m not into that either, but I am into Mister’s ode to those that are the opposite of the 100 emoji.
Peep Mister’s clip for “Fake” above.

One of my favorite songs finally gets the visual treatment. Asaad and Louie’s “Block Boy” is one of the standout tracks from Asaad’s Flowers II LP (which I hope you didn’t sleep on) and one of my favorite guest spots from Lou this year. Glad to see this joint got a video.
Press play and take a trip to Philly with Asaad and King Louie in the clip above.

It was truly an honor and a pleasure to interview these two living legends in front of a live studio audience in Chicago last month. It’s rather lengthly, and you must be a GrammyPro member to watch in full, but trust that it’s worth joining and watching if you have time.
I got to talk shop with these two and we go in-depth about the current state of the music biz, working with legends, how up and coming artists can be heard and if the record label is dead. Their answers might surprise you.
In this exclusive conversation hosted by the Chicago Chapter and the Producers & Engineers Wing, two innovative leaders in production, Just Blaze and Salaam Remi, sat down with hip-hop blogger Andrew Barber for a one-of-a-kind discussion on how to survive and thrive in the music industry. Topics covered include the current climate of the music business, the changing role of record labels, and current equipment the two use. Just Blaze and Remi also shared stories about working with legends including the Fugees, Jay Z, Eminem, Nas, and Amy Winehouse.
Ill Legit joins forces with Save Money emcee Eddie Mon$ta to take aim at crooked cops, in light of the Mike Brown verdict. I’ll let Illy take it from here:
“A song dedicated to the police and this fine system we have and like to call justice. And a remembrance of the Michael Brown police shooting and senseless police brutality and violence. Its time to unite and fight back.”
