Nylo lends her vocals to this new joint from Epic recording artist Gilbere Forte’s latest project, Pray. New music from the Chi City songstress should be dropping any minute now. Until it does, you can definitely fall for this smooth record below.
As Parkay preps the release of his Kush & Caviar album, we’ll be getting weekly episodes of his aptly titled Kush & Caviar series. Today we have episode one and it features cameos from the likes of Sean Mac, Mikkey Halsted and Mikey Mike. Look for the album in June courtesy of One Off Music Group.

If you’ve heard Chance’s Acid Rap (and let’s be serious, who hasn’t?), then you surely heard the female vocals on “Lost.” After said project dropped, we received a few inquiries as to who she was, and today we can make a proper introduction.
No Name Gypsy is a 21-year old rapper from the south-side of Chicago. For the past year, No Name has been writing and recording music for her debut mixtape “Telefone” expected to release in late July. With a background in poetry, her music is heavily rooted in descriptive language and meaningful subject matter. Telefone is a culmination of different conversations she’s had over the phone that have impacted who she is as an artist and young adult in Chicago. The tape is meant feel like you’re talking to someone you like on the phone for first time, exploring their likes and dislikes, dreams and aspirations, and their ideas about the world around them.
Got it? Her debut, Telefone, is due out in July. But for now, enjoy the paradise of “Paradise.”
Produced by Young Chop
It got me noid. It got me noid. It got me noid. But I ain’t paranoid. So says Silkk The Shocker. What does that have to do with the post? Absolutely nothing other than the title. But we gotta give it to Frenchie for recruiting the services of May Cash and Young Chop for “Paranoid.” This one definitely has a Chicago influence to it.
French’s Excuse My French drops next week.
Earlier today, Tink got together with Lil Herb & Lil Bibby to shoot the video for their very dope collabo, “Kilo.” The track was produced by DJ L, and the video is to be directed by Zae — so look for it to impact at some point this summer.
We recently placed this loosie on our Best of Lil Herb & Lil Bibby: Heir Apparents project, which you should download immediately if you haven’t already. Conveniently enough, you can catch Tink, Herb and Bibby all on our Sound Select show with Red Bull on Thursday May 30 at the Double Door. Want tickets? You can get them here.
To see more pics from the shoot you can hit the jump now.

With the weather finally on summertime Chi status, Pugs takes to a few beautiful spots in the city for his “Boy Meets Girl” video. The track was pulled from Tokyo Dawn’s Heart 3 compilation, which dropped a while back.
Look for Pugs’ Tokyo Dawn album to drop in the near future. But for now watch this boy meet a girl.
Being one of Tree’s biggest fans/supporters, I felt it was only right to offer up a review/preview of what to expect from SS2.
It’s no secret that volume one of Tree’s Sunday School series was last year’s sleeper hit. FSD has been singing Tree’s praises for years, but 2012 was the year the outside world finally began to catch on. Accolades and critical acclaim trickled in, and in the interim Tree dropped a handful of EPs and one-off projects. But to kick off 2013, Tree returned to form by unleashing the second installment of his Sunday School series. Tree attacked the project with a ‘if it ain’t broke don’t fix it’ approach, but this time around it’s a bit, well, cleaner. And I say cleaner for lack of a better term. And I don’t mean “cleaner” in the content sense, I mean it sounds like it was actually recorded in a real life studio instead of his bedroom, where he recorded SS1.
Sir Chuck drops off another new record from his forthcoming Droptops project, featuring Aston Matthews and Kashflow. This joint is too tough. Check it out below and keep an ear out for Droptops, which is scheduled to drop May 23rd.
