The wait is finally over, the project is here. After leaking a string of new music over the past few months, BJ The Chicago Kid gives us his first project in a few years, the all-new The M.A.F.E. Project.
12 hot tracks featuring Freddie Gibbs, Schoolboy Q, Smoke DZA, Kobe, Sasha Go Hard and more. M.A.F.E. stands for “Music Ain’t For Everybody,” but we believe this project truly is. Get to know one of Chicago’s real heroes below. His talent speaks volumes, so be sure to turn it up.

This is nice. Three dope emcees connect for the impactful “Black Alabaster.” This is a look from XVR’s Need To Know II: LUNA project, which is set to come out in February.
Upcoming releases will feature contributions from SaveMoney’s Joey Purp, Chicago’s Stunt Taylor and Supa Bwe, New York Knick Iman Shumpert, legendary producer Pete Rock and more.
King Push. Yeezus on the boards. Thanks, Flex.
Update: Tagless/CDQ version added.

Wiley is back for the second day in a row with new music. Instead of going the route of delivering it straight to his fans, he slid it over to Noisey for the premiere and a quick interview.
Noisey: Tell me about this song, “Booty Club.”
Alex Wiley: It’s a song that I made in a hotel room. I had this bodyguard on the East Coast tour, and he used to come in the hotel rooms like late as shit at night, like on some 4 AM shit, and we’d just be like ‘where were you?’ And he’s like ‘man, I was just in the booty club’ and shit. And one random night he comes in at like 5 AM, waking everybody up, and we’re like ‘where were you?’ and he’s like ‘the booty club, going dumb again’ and it was like the funniest shit I had heard in that moment, the booty club going dumb.
Press play and let those organs ride out. It’s below.
Ain’t that a B?
#100Trill is back with their weekly Wednesday drop series, and today they team back up with their comrade, Weasel Sims, for “Damn Ain’t That A Bitch.” B ain’t nothin but a word, and find out why below. Another heater from this drop series — play this one on real speakers, plz & thx.

Mick’s vision for one of the dopest tracks off his Water[s] mixtape, “Dehydration,” is nothing short of amazing. In the well-directed-and-shot clip, Mick deals with the senseless gun violence that plagues Chicago. Never one to bite his tongue, Mick makes this visual hit close to home with some vivid imagery. You may have to watch it a couple of times, tbh.

Shortly after previewing it on The Breakfast Club this morning, Timbo gave DJ Envy the green light to premiere the OG version of “Movin’ Bass” with Tink, Jay and Rozay on Power 105.1.
If you guessed that we ripped it, then you’re right. You can check out the radio-rip below while you wait for a proper mp3 to surface. This is too cold.
This morning, Timbo The King dropped by The Breakfast Club to chat with C Tha God, Envy and Angela, and among other things he discussed, in detail, his new artist Tink. Tim talks about how he discovered her (via Da Internz when they played him a joint in the studio) and how he thinks she’s the best female artist since Lauryn Hill.
He also plays an unreleased version of Rick Ross’ new single with Jay-Z “Moving Bass,” which originally featured Tink. Wow. This unreleased version needs to trickle out ASAP. This comes as another massive look for Tink, who is quietly taking the industry by storm. Her future is looking extremely bright. Well deserved.
It’s not even December yet, but today DUB Magazine unveiled their 2015 cover, which just so happens to feature Chicago’s red hot R&B representative, Jeremih. They even give his forthcoming album (which we’re still waiting on a release date for), Late Nights, some shine to boot.
The issue hits stands today and should be available at your favorite magazine retailers. Don’t tell ‘em I didn’t warn you.
This is the second joint in a week that Johnny May Cash has dropped with Aussie artist, Sonny. May there be a project brewing between the two artists? We don’t know for sure. But we do know that this new one, “Counting Up,” is a solid ode to getting money. Count up, but don’t forget to put some away for a rainy day. But what do I know, I’m not in finance.
