Change isn’t always a bad thing and that happens to be the topic of choice for Logan’s latest offering. Logan’s currently preparing to release 1636 project later this year, but there’s a good chance this record won’t make the final cut. This one’s just a little something to hold you over, you know?
Check out the video for “Change” above.
Festival season isn’t over yet.
The first annual AAHH! Fest, by Common, will take place in Union Park on September 21st and the lineup looks amazing.
Com, Lupe Fiasco, De La Soul, MC Lyte, Jay Elect and Lil Herb will all be hitting the stage, while Dave Chappelle will take hosting duties. A very special guest is also said to be gracing the stage, but only time will tell who that is. The festival will also include a community showcase curated by Rhymefest and featuring a performance from Diggy Simmons.
Excited yet? We are. Tickets and more details can be found here.
I can’t even begin to say how proud I am of the Jackie Robinson West Little League team, who are now the current reigning US Little League World Series champs. Today the city of Chicago threw them one heck of a celebration at their home field on the Southside, which turned into a parade that marched down Halsted and ended at the city-wide rally at Millennium Park. The city truly showed up and showed out today, and the Chi’s current reigning hip-hop champ, Chance The Rapper, was also on hand to salute the team and their fans during the rally. Talk about a homecoming.
Peep the powerful moment above. Hats off to all involved.

The latest release from White Gzus is nothing but “Magic.” Word to PsychoDrama. Blanco and Gzus lay their pimp hand down from coast to coast over this funky ass Mr. E and Mano backdrop. Pimp my ride? Nah, they pimped this track. Straight collar poppin’ and wood grain grippin. Pimpin’ ain’t easy, but this joint will be to your ears.
White Gzus’ Stackin N Mackin can’t come soon enough.
