Fresh off rocking back-to-back shows with Soulja Boy in Chicago and Denver, we return for our fourth Red Bull Sound Select show of 2016 — this time with Playboi Carti headlining. He’s red hot right now, and one of the leaders of the new school, so it’s only right we bring Cash Carti to the Chi.

It goes down THIS Thursday, August 25th at the Double Door. Doors open at 8pm, and the show is 18+. Per usual, it’s a $3 with RSVP — $10 without. It’s affordable for all us broke boi’s and broke girls out there. So be sure to RSVP and save some cash. This show WILL sell out, so be sure to handle that ASAP. Early arrival is strongly suggested.

Rounding out the bill is fellow Red Bull Sound Select artist Finding Novyon, who will be making the trip down from Minneapolis, and will be performing his hits such as “Let’s Get Lit” and select cuts from his newly released Believe In MPLS project.

Holding it down for Chicago is newcomer Nina Tech, who has quickly become one of our favorite artists with great visuals like “Nina Knapsack” and tracks like “Run Around.” She’s going to show and prove on August 25th, believe that.

Finally, someguynamedty will be DJing, as always, so please believe it will be a night to remember.

G Herbo – Pull Up

q4gLEJ3MyK8D

Damn, Herbo took it back to the 90s on his new release. 1992 to be exact. On “Pull Up,” Herb reworks Silk’s 1992 smash hit, “Freak Me,” which predates Herb’s birth by three years. Hey, there’s no expiration date on dope music.

I can’t front though, Silk’s “Freak Me” was my jam, and Silk should be celebrated for wearing pagers on their shower towels in the remix music video. They were truly trendsetters for that. Anyhoo, today were talking about Herbo and his reworking of it. It’s below, and it’s super dope.

Enjoy Loverman Herbo below.

Chief Keef Handling All of the Production on Young Chop’s Next Mixtape

1415407717_young_chop_chief_keef_18

It’s been four years since Keef released “I Don’t Like”, and changed the state of rap. Backed of course by Young Chop’s crazy production, a new sound was brought to the forefront of music. Without Keef and Chop’s work, this Chicago Renaissance we’re in the midst of wouldn’t be happening. That’s a fact.

Since then, after working with many other producers, plus ups and downs with Chop, Keef has been steadily developing as a beatsmith in his own right. Now, it looks like Keef is set to take a huge step forward and handle all of the soundboard work on Chop’s new mixtape. That’s right, the dynamic duo that started a movement is apparently gonna switch it up and trade places for a full release. Keef is obviously influenced somewhat by those early sounds he and Chop created, but he’s solidly gone off in his own direction that is would bring an interesting element to the project.

Chop took to Instagram to post a session he and Keef were having, where he made the announcement. No word yet on just how serious he was about it, but we’ll keep our eyes open for whatever these two have got cooking up. Check out Chief Keef and Young Chop in the lab below.
