In case you’ve been living under a rock, Lupe Fiasco dropped a new album last today. Tetsuo & Youth. You’ve likely heard of it? Hopefully you’ve heard it. And maybe even bought it. To help promote the project, Lu sat down with DJ Skee last night on SkeeTV to talk about the opus and a whole slew of other relevant topics. Trust they run the gamut of all recent Lupe Fiasco-related activities here.
In fact, the Skee people were even nice enough to break it down by the second and minute. Bravo. Go buy that album now, and get that copy signed by Lu himself tonight at Exclusive 773.
From LA to the Chi.
Chicago native and West Coast resider, BJ The Chicago Kid, dropped by Snoop Dogg’s popular internet talk show, GGN, for a dope interview and profile on the artist. BJ talks about his new EP, his career, hooking up with TD, his influences and so much more.
Learn yourself something about one of the Chi’s dopest talents above. Chuuch.
Qualmes pulls out all the stops for this dope new posse cut from his StankaKILLafornia EP, which is set to hit on January 27th. Qualmes, G.o.D. and C. Rich all jump down to make “Fienin” a reality. There’s one in every family. Word to Fiend.
Fun fact: I was at a Lollapalooza party thrown by Revolt this past summer, when the DJ put on this record. I can’t remember who the DJ was exactly, but the sound of the song stopped me in my tracks. I knew it was Tree, but I didn’t know what song it was. Was it something that’d been out that I’d missed? I knew it wasn’t. So I went around the event, on a mission, to find out what was happening with this slapping new Tree pumping out of the speakers.
Well, I was told it was from Tree’s new album, and it was produced by Xcel. An unlikely pairing, that produced a very solid outing. I secured myself a copy of the Mp3 (hey I have my connections), and have enjoyed it privately ever since. Perks!
Today the world gets it, however. So hopefully you’re as excited about it as we were. Tree has been performing this for months now and it has been a fan favorite, so see what all the fuss is about below.
TrapGenius, Tree’s new album, is due out soon.

The Treated Crew? Whoadi, we bout that. And today the bad guys in black return to FSD with a brand new video for Mic T’s “Bout That.” Fellow Treated Crewians, Gzus Piece and Mano, feature on this eerie track, that now has a smokey accompanying new video.
After you burn one down and feast your eyes on clip, be sure to buy Mic’s album, Fresh Prince Of Darkness, which was one of the best from last year. But we’ve already told you that numerous times. We’re bout that, and you should be, too.

Stunt Taylor takes his stuntn all the way to the max with his latest project, StuntN on Turbo. Sure, G-Unit taught you how to stunt, but they never taught you how to stunt in turbo speed. I’m not even sure your stunt goes that fast. My doesn’t.
Today, Stunt drops off his latest project, which includes 13 new tracks, largely produced by C-Sick. King Louie, Twista, XVRHLDY and Chief Keef all show up to assist. It’s Stunt season below — stay prepared.

Are you still sleeping on Brain’s double mixtape that dropped late, late last year? Do you need more incentive to check it out? You shouldn’t. It’s quality street music at its finest. It will seriously have you calling for the competition to throw the towel in.
Stick a fork in ‘em. They’re done. Check out the visual up top. Grab the project[s] here.

It’s a cold world, and we live in an even colder city. So icy, indeed. Anyhoo, despite the frozen tundra outside, Murph Watkins found time to brave the chill to film this quick little freestyle video for “18° Below,” to hold his fans over until his 2015 project, YUN, is ready.
Chicago producer, studio wiz and professor, Professor Fox has an instrumental album due out later this year. In between guiding the collegiate youth, running a studio and a number of other things, he still has time to bless the people with freebie instrumentals. Today he gives us a piece of what to expect with “Please.” Just make sure you say please and thank you.
Chill Woof is the project and it’s on the way. Stay tuned.
