We’ve known Timbaland had been working closely with Tink over the past few months, but her status as a signed artist has been relatively unknown until now. However, today it was announced that Timbaland has a new label partnership with Epic Records for his Mosley Music Group imprint, with this first artists being Tink and V. Bozeman.

Not much is known about the label other than the partnership with Epic Records, but expect to hear some big things between Tink and Timbaland in the very near future. Congrats to all parties involved on this one.

#100Trill f/ J.R. – No One Cares

| October 22, 2014 | 0 Comments


Dem #100Trill Boyz are back with “No One Cares.” But FSD cares, if don’t nobody else care. On this one, Grade Aplus and Mike Jaxx do it for the 9 to 5’ers out there trying to live their dreams while juggling a dead end job. Clock in all business, clock out doing raps. It’s a hectic life, but there is a balance and light at the end of the tunnel. Take it from someone who has been there. Keep pushing. But outwork everyone else — it’s the only way out.

The Story Behind Iman Shumpert’s Hat, As Told By Fatboi Fresh

| October 21, 2014 | 1 Comment


Words by FSD contributor, rapper, funnyman & Mr. All Things Chicago: Fatboi Fresh ()

Those of you who know me know that there’s nothing I love more than the westside of Chicago. Growing up on the westside, there have been many fads that have come and gone, but only one has remained an important part of westside history and gained iconic status in the local fashion world, and that’s the 150 (Buck Fifty) hat. The 150 gets its name from the standard price of the hat which was originally $150.00 but actually the hat’s price can range anywhere from $150.00 to $1,500 USD, and was once sold exclusively at the now-closed Breyers clothing store downtown.

DJ Kenn AllOrNothing f/ Pretty N Pink – Street Sh**

Okay, so Kenn’s The World Is Ours project didn’t drop last Friday as planned. But that’s no big deal, as he plans to make the project even bigger and better — and sometimes that takes extra TLC. Tonight he returns with “Street Shit” featuring the femcee troop, Pretty N Pink. Not sure where Kenn found them, as I’m guessing this group of girls has been on hiatus since mid-2012. They had a nice little thing going and then I didn’t hear from them again. Leave it to Kenn to bring them back. Find them below. The return is upon us!
