Rapper Trae Tha Truth and producer The World’s Freshest connect yet again for another installment of their Tonight Show collabo series. Tonight they jump back down with Gangsta Gibbs and Problem for “Wid It.” The full seven-track project is due out on January 21st 2014. Check out the new leak below.
Two new freestyles for the price of
one none from OTF Nunu. Here the budding emcee tackles two of the south’s biggest hits of the moment with freestyles over Thugger’s “Stoner” and Que’s “Bobby Johnson.” Nunu puts his Chicago spin on both. Check them out below.
A local emcee by the name of MoBo was plucked out of the crowd for the second time in four years last night to rap on stage with Jay Z. The Magna Carter tour rolled through Chi City yesterday evening, and as Hov’s been doing throughout this tour, pulled a fan out of the crowd to freestyle and perform on stage with him.
Well, last night, lightening struck twice for Chicago rapper MoBo, who was spotted in the crowd holding a sign with a message for Hova. He then invited her on stage where she rapped for over two minutes for the sold out United Center crowd. MoBo was also pulled on stage with Jay during his Blueprint 3 tour in 2009. Me thinks MoBo should play the lotto today. The good news? Hov took down MoBo’s number after the show. What are the odds?
“In the video, you can hear me joking around, laughing and Hov telling me he’s gonna get my number.. which he did :)”
