“On the scene, from the 41st side of Queens” – Havoc
Fun fact: “Cradle To The Grave” is one of my favorite Mobb Deep songs.
Alright, enough about me. G.o.D. Jewels is back with new music and he’s dedicating this one to all of his dunns. This time around, Jewels makes Prodigy and Hav’s “Give Up The Goods” his own.
Listen to “41st Side” below.

Only :30, but :30 is better than no seconds. And you can get a quick taste of what you can expect from one of my absolute favorite tracks on the new Sean Don album. And as you now know, Chicago’s own Mano and OG Webbie handled production here. A Treated x G.O.O.D. connection. Look for the full thing to hit the net soon.
Dark Sky Paradise is due out on February 24th. Read my thoughts on it here.
Not in NYC for all-star weekend? Are you kicking yourself for not being there? It’s looking insane crazy already and it’s only Thursday. And tonight, Kanye not only shut the city down with his adidas x Yeezy fashion show, but also tore down flatiron as part of the Roc Nation #RocCity classic.
It was nothing short of a spectacle, as he ran through hits and even brought his entire GOOD Music crew out: Big Sean, Pusha T, 2 Chainz, and Travis Scott. His full set is now above. The wins continue.
This is a hit. Right? I know I’m not buggin’. That’s why this video got the rush treatment and is starting to heat up airwaves errwhere. You can’t lose with a Whitney Houston flip like this. Check out their vibrant video up top. Could this me ‘Mih’s next chart-topper?
Kanye West’s debut fashion show with adidas just wrapped in NYC, and it was a truly groundbreaking and star-studded affair. Kanye showcased various clothing items, as well as a few variations of his Yeezy shoe (yes, there’s more than one style.) Jay Z, Beyonce, Diddy, Rihanna, Bieberveli, Kim Kardashian, Travis Scott and ASAP Ferg are just a few of the big named artists in attendance.

We hate to say told you so, but we told you King Louie wasn’t the only young Chicago artist working with ‘Ye on his new album. Just a few minutes ago, ‘Ye decided to preview “Wolves,” a collaboration with Sia and Vic Mensa, during the unveiling of his Yeezy Season 1 line with adidas.
Apparently, the track is the first song on Kanye’s upcoming album. Whether that’s still the case when the album drops or not, it’s good to see ‘Ye and Vic collaborating.
Two quick previews can be heard below, thanks to DJ Semtex. Thoughts? Sound off below.
Update: A rip of the full song has surfaced already. Check it out below, while you can.
Produced by ChopSquad DJ and Young Chop.
Just in time for all-star weekend, Chief Keef, ChopSquad DJ and Young Chop get together to play some basketball. Word to Kurtis Blow. The result? Gotta be a slam dunk, no? Check out the leak courtesy of ThreeKings below.
In honor of Black History Month, Epic of the BBU crew, will be dropping a slew of new videos and releasing a bunch of new music. Today he kicks off this series of by dropping off the video for “Family Tree” which runs downs a massive list of Epic’s favorite and most celebrated heroes. This is his history. This is his family tree.
Produced by OnGaud
Time for some new Mick Jenkins. Pun intended! This one is yet another collab with his OnGaud fam, and it’s a loosie from 119 FDC’s The Chicago Sight ‘N’ Sound compilation. Mr. Jenkins gets into a melodic almost trance-like flow here. We got time for that.
