Created by Cameron Chapleau and Matthew Andreasen for Fake Shore Drive

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, readers, friends, Romans, countrymen. We’re back with our original series and feature on FSD: Would You Rather? The brainchild of Cameron Chapleau and Matthew Andreasen, this video segment features the Chi’s rising stars answering a series of rather strange and off-kilter questions. The answers? Sometimes hilarious. The questions? Most times ridiculous. The facial expressions? Always priceless.

It’s something you’re going to need to watch to fully understand, and today we return with our fifth installment featuring the super charged persona of Taylor Bennett. Over the course of the past few months, Taylor has been selling out shows, rocking stages across the country, and hitting his fans over the head with quality music on a consistent basis. But how does Taylor handle tough decisions (and believe there are many in life)? Well, we sat down with the young turk for another exciting episode of Would You Rather? Tune in and figure out how he handles the pressure cooker.

“Rap about how they not rappers but really still rappers”

That might be the realest shit he ever wrote right there. Here Trag has some stray shots for no one in particular, but also everyone in particular. If you’re a rapper, a rapper’s rapper, or a rapping ass rapper, Tragedy is coming for your head. Sliver platter style. Tha Beast is in straight beast mode here. Rappers stay woke. He left this one smoking.

The highly anticipated EP from Kami de Chukwu and Joey Purple, collectively known as Leather Corduroys, has finally hit the e-streets. Apparently, the EP has been released a little earlier than expected thanks to none other than Chance The Rapper (or whoever operates his ChanceRaps account) via Reddit. Pretty interesting, but we’ll take it.

Glad this didn’t turn out to be an April Fools’ Day joke. Or did it? Either way, hit the jump to stream and download.
