Produced by Tye Hill

Some absolute goodness from the Mayhem Machine — and the extended family. Lennon, Tree and Tye — three names you should know by now if you’re at least a casual reader of FSD. The track is “Casu Marzu” — but nothing’s rotten about this cheese.

Can’t wait for Lennon’s forthcoming solo album, My Chemical Romance, as it’s sounding sonically incredible at this point. And cot damn if Tree isn’t the hardest working dude in Chicago rap right now. Seriously, MC Tree G is everywhere.

| August 25, 2014 | 0 Comments


White Gzus is the duo of Blanco Caine and Gzus Piece. You’ve got the White and the Gzus right there. It shouldn’t be too hard for you to figure out.

The bulk of the production was handled by in house homie Mr. E, while Mano, Sulaiman, Auggie The 9th, Chris Crack and Nick Jr. all show up to feature.
