Following the release of his new EP with ScionAV, Kembe X delivers an official video for the Ab-Soul and Alex Wiley-assisted “As I Unfold”. This record was one of the standouts and one of my personal favorites from Kembe’s EP, which I suggest you grab right here if you haven’t gotten a chance to yet.

Check out the video for “As I Unfold” above and look for Kembe’s full length album to impact in the near future.

Giftz keeps the new music rolling as he uses the instrumental for Wayne and Drake’s “Grindin” as the backdrop for his latest drop. As expected, Giftz kills it. Hopefully, we’ll get to hear Giftz over some original Boi-1da and Vinylz production in the near future.

Giftz’ ESGN debut, Mirrors, is due out soon. I suggest you keep an ear out for that. Until then, check out Giftz’ rendition of “Grindin” below.

Today we take it to the North Pole for this new clip from the Chicago’s own, Bread Doe. Bread is the first in-house artist of Chicago’s newly launched Remix Project, which is now taking place in the Lacuna Artist Lofts in Pilsen.

My man Gavin Sheppard, who is running point at the Remix Project, wrote a thing or two about the video and song, which I’ve shared with you below. Keep an eye out for Bread’s North Shore EP, due out later this year.

Raised in North Chicago, recording artist & producer Bread Doe is proud to release the first single and video from his forthcoming “The North Shore EP” – North Chicago.

Shot by frequent collaborator Tim G Films, North Chicago is a gritty and melodic ode to the community and the people who raised him.

Ceno and Trav are back. Yep, after taking some time off to show off their lyrical capabilities on a slew of industry remixes, Polo Grounds/RCA recording artists Sicko Mobb are back to get the FeFe rocking. “Range Rover” features the duo getting back to business in the truest sense of the word. It’s time to get your feet moving, and Trav and Ceno do that perfectly with this new one called “Range Rover.” Skeeee-eeeee.

Also, this joint will NOT be featured on their forthcoming mixtape, SSV2, which should drop later this year. Grab it below — and don’t pump your brakes.

Produced by Tye Hill

Some absolute goodness from the Mayhem Machine — and the extended family. Lennon, Tree and Tye — three names you should know by now if you’re at least a casual reader of FSD. The track is “Casu Marzu” — but nothing’s rotten about this cheese.

Can’t wait for Lennon’s forthcoming solo album, My Chemical Romance, as it’s sounding sonically incredible at this point. And cot damn if Tree isn’t the hardest working dude in Chicago rap right now. Seriously, MC Tree G is everywhere.
