After much critical acclaim, and having features on hit songs such as Donnie Trumpet’s “Sunday Candy” and Macklemore’s “White Privilege 2,” Jamila Woods is set to release her debut album, Heavn, this summer. Her talent has been able to cut through the crowded competition within the Chicago scene, and she is most definitely poised for a big breakthrough in 2016.
We recently sat down with the poet/singer, who spoke about everything from the poetry community to “black girl magic.” Peep the conversation below, and be sure to stay on the look out for Heavn — as well as her album release show at Double Door on June 23rd.Quentin Yarolem 0
Fresh off the release of her All Jokes Aside project, DeJ returns with two new videos (three if you count the first one as a split vid) for both “Vibes / Chase Mine” and “Goals.” Watch both below. They’re both very different in look, feel and texture. Another impressive outing from DeJ.Andrew Barber 0
Yesterday AM, Vic was a guest on Shade 45’s Sway In The Morning, where he viciously attacked Sway’s legendary 5 Fingers of Death Freestyle. I’ve not once heard Vic speak a weak batch of bars in the freestyle realm, and he crushed it yet again yesterday. He’s 100% one of the best freestylers in the biz right now.
Watch in awe below.Andrew Barber 0
