The 2014 run of vitaminwater’s #uncapped series came to a close in New York City last week and one of the Chi’s own was in the building to help close it out. Vic Mensa joined DJ Envy and surprise guest Trey Songz at Gotham Hall for what looked like a pretty dope show.

King Louie’s Tony project is one of his best in a while and one of the more underrated projects to impact this year. Before fully focusing on his upcoming Drilluminati 3 mixtape, Lou gives us a video for one of the many standouts (and my personal favorite) from Tony — the C-Sick-produced “F*ck N*gga”.

Watch the video for “F*ck N*gga” above and grab Tony here if you haven’t yet or been under a rock.

“Pass The El” serves as the second single from MFN Melo’s upcoming Melodramatics project and it’s pretty great, to say the least. I first heard Melo and Walt perform this joint live a few months ago and have been waiting on a mp3 since then. Glad the wait’s finally over.

Melodramatics drops next month and snoozing isn’t recommended. Check out “Pass The El” below.
