| November 23, 2014 | 0 Comments


The Tinkover…

Yesterday, the first lady of Mosley Music Group, Tink, and her trusted mentor, Timbaland, descended upon Chicago to film the video for “Around The Clock,” Tink’s first single under Timbaland’s tutelage, which leaked this week.

Famed Chicago music video director DGainz (!!!) is handling the visual, so expect nothing but magic from this trio. We landed some pictures from the set to show you a bit of what you can expect. And yes, it’s super dope that Timbo came to the Chi with Tink to film it. If you missed the track “Around The Clock,” you can hear it right here.

Meet ACE B8gie, He Had Beyonce’s “7/11″ Beat First

| November 21, 2014 | 1 Comment


Everyone this side of a dial-up connection has seen Beyonce’s incredibly entertaining new video for “7/11.” You’ve probably heard of it, it literally had the internet going nuts (word to Bey’s H-Town compadre Paul Wall) tonight.

“7/11″ is an undeniable hit, and I’m sure its release and her bouncy DIY-style video will be something discussed for generations to come. As I type this there are probably 711 think piece’s being crafted in dedication — and probably rightfully so. Even the song’s producer, Bobby Johnson, known for such hits as “OG Bobby Johnson,” is sharing in the accolades this evening. It’s a celebration.

But what you probably didn’t know (or missed if you’re a frequent reader of FSD) is that a Chicago artist we cover frequently, ACE B8gie, recorded over the “7/11″ beat before there even was a “7/11.” Yes, back in July of 2014, ACE released his The B8gie Foo’ Blues EP, which included a track titled “Bird’s Eye View,” which was produced by Bobby Johnson. He even shot a video for it (said video is below), which dropped in August.

Some how, some way Bey got her hands on the instrumental (which had been reworked and revamped a bit by the time she likely heard it) leading to her internet-breaking new single, “7/11.” But yes, “Bird’s Eye View” existed first — and it’s a very dope record. Obviously if Beyonce comes calling the beat you once rocked over becomes null and void, but it’s still dope to hear a rap rendition of her new hit before struggle rapper freestyles begin pouring out this evening.

So please, meet ACE B8gie and his super dope “Bird’s Eye View,” which shares the beat for “7/11.” Yes, these things happen sometimes.

| November 21, 2014 | 0 Comments


Today, Malik Yusef dropped a very meaningful project through his PVTPLN label, in partnership with Apple. The project is free, and it’s an EP titled Home. The EP was spearheaded by Malik Yusef and it’s a project that hopes to raise awareness about climate change and “expand the climate movement.”

The project is free, but they ask you to share a tweet, or a facebook post to raise awareness for the cause. Do the right thing and grab the album here — and be sure to tell a friend to tell a friend. It’s righteous. Sample “Always” below.
