DJ Vadim f/ Pugs Atomz, Psalm One, ShowYouSuck, Qwazaar, Ill Legit & Thaione- This DJ (Chicago Flex)

| September 25, 2014 | 0 Comments


Produced by DJ Vadim

Take your idea of a posse cut, then feed it after midnight (a’la Gremlins), pour water on it, then main-line it steroids. For a week. I’m pretty sure you’d end up with this “This DJ (Chicago Flex),” posse cut. The verses aren’t the longest, but the artists jump in, spit and then dip before you even realized what happened.

Check out the beast below.

On The Set: Lil Bibby f/ T.I. – Boy

| September 24, 2014 | 0 Comments


Bibby’s been busy.

After cooking up a video for “We Are Strong” with Kevin Gates in the ATL a few days ago, Bibby kept the productiveness rolling right along and started working on a video for the T.I.-assisted “Boy” yesterday. “Boy” was one of my favorites from Free Crack 2, so I’m glad to see it’s getting the visual treatment.

Check out a few flicks from the set below and look for the video, directed by Phillyflyboy, to impact soon.

Shawnna Addresses Being Blocked From Attending BET Awards, Issues w/ DTP

| September 24, 2014 | 0 Comments


Shawnna made waves earlier this week when it was reported that the Chicago emcee was denied access to last weekend’s BET Hip-Hop Awards in Atlanta. But it’s way deeper than that. After the news broke about the blocking, Shawnna fired back claiming it was her old label, Disturbing The Peace, who stopped her from attending and walking the red carpet.

Shawnna accused DTP head Chaka Zulu of being behind the ban, and went online to clear her name. Yesterday, however, sources told AllHipHop that Shawnna’s barring had nothing to do with DTP or Chaka Zulu. So in response, Shawnna sat down with AllHipHop to explain what happened, why they denied her access, and the behind the scenes beef that’s been bubbling with DTP for years.

It’s crazy. We put a lot of money and effort into getting down to Atlanta for BET Hip Hop Awards weekend, so we could promote my new single “Gettin’ To It.” It’s getting a lot of buzz here at home in Chicago, but it takes more than that to break a record. So we were all set up, ready to go down there, mingle with DJs, and get a good look on the red carpet.

I actually didn’t even know they were considering me for the cypher. We were right outside of Atlanta, and they contacted my manager and said, “We might have another slot in the cypher, and we’re considering Shawnna.” So we hit the metal a little harder [laughs].

While in Philadelphia for his headlining show at TLA a couple of days ago, Chief Keef decided to give the audience a preview of an untitled record that has yet to be released. No telling when a mp3 will surface, but there’s a good chance the record will appear on Keef’s oft-delayed Bang 3 album.

Check out the clip above. Also, hit the jump to catch Keef and Tadoe performing “Tec”.

Video: Logan – My Religion

| September 24, 2014 | 0 Comments

Directed by J Krown. Produced by Flight.

I must say, I love this new trend of rappers dropping new videos and/or songs on their birthdays. It should be a requirement — plus it lets the people know to reach out and wish them a HBD. That being said, tonight we have the world premiere of Logan’s new video for “My Religion.”

This joint was one of the standout tracks from Logan’s now-unavailable EP that dropped earlier this year. Click play on the clip above to see Logan lose his religion amongst the foliage in the great outdoors. Buy him a shot when you see him. Many more.
