Produced by Bobby Johnson
ACE B8gie has done it again. And yes, he’s back with a new one featuring producing Bobby Johnson. You may remember the last joint ACE dropped that was produced by Bobby was also used by Beyonce for her recent hit “7/11.” You can check those out here.
Anyhoo, ACE season returns and today he turns the session up with “Session Up (Pearls & Gems).” There’s a plethora of gems here, so listen very carefully. Keep your eyes on this young man, he’s making some great stuff right now.
G Herbo was on a recent media run in NYC, and dropped by Revolt to talk about a number of topics. One of which being his recent Grammy nod as being a part of Common’s Nobody’s Smiling album. Herb talks about first learning about the nomination, which he had no idea had even happened. Common’s album is a strong contender, so let’s hope they bring home the award this year.
Be sure to grab Herb’s recently released PPP project right here.
Before returning home for their homecoming show and the first of their new monthly series at The Promontory next week (more on that below the jump), Windy City jazz/hip hop collective Hypnotic Brass Ensemble get straight to business with the official video for their new single, “Straight Business.”
Solid song, solid clip. Two thumbs up for this one. Do yourself a favor and check it out above. If you’re looking for “Straight Business” in mp3 form, then head over to iTunes and cop the single. Hypnotic’s new album, The Bad Boys Of Jazz, is set to impact later this year. I suggest you keep an ear out for that.
Produced by Young Chop
Chop gave Rae Sremmurd another great record in their recent stream of hits. Chalk it up as another win for the Southern duo. Be sure to grab their album, SremmLife, which dropped today. But first, press play to this Young Chop on the beat, beat.

Pugslee and Awdazcate take us to Lake Michigan aboard the Anita Dee II for a real life love boat, with this Araab Muzick-produced ode to Iridium. Yes, from the looks of things this Iridium Life party was rocking, and some of the best in the city came out to support. Some dope cameos and shots of the lakefront here. Life is good.
Last night, out on the left coast, Chief Keef, Lil Reese and Fredo Santana gathered together for a GBE reunion show of sorts. While the entire collective was not in attendance, most of the crew was and they showed fans it was all love with the first night of their planned reunion tour.
The world at large has only truly known of GBE for just three years, so they’re moving quickly on this. Can’t keep the people waiting too long, right? Either way, check out the highlights of the show above. Let’s hope that group project also surfaces later this year.
Update: New footage added above & below.
