Produced by 9th Wonder.
BJ, K.R.I.T. and 9th? Yeah, count us in. Lifted from K.R.I.T.’s King Remembered In Time project, which you can check out here.
Def Jam had a “Spotlight Live” concert last week to showcase some of the R&B talent they have on their Def Jam/Motown/Universal roster, and BJ was on the bill alongside The-Dream, Luke James and others. Here he sits down with Rise24′s Chief Carl Lamarre to talk about Pineapple Now-Laters, a potential project with Kendrick Lamar, and working with Biggie and J. Dilla.

During his set with Madlib at San Bernardino, CA’s Paid Dues Music Festival this past Saturday, Gangsta Gibbs brought out BJ The Chicago Kid to perform “Shame”. If you’re wondering when the MadGibbs LP (entitled Cocaine Piñata) is dropping, it’s said to be released later this year. Hopefully the wait isn’t too long.

Chance gets animated and takes a note from Mr. West for the third and official single from Acid Rap. BJ The Chicago Kid assists on “Good Ass Intro”, while Peter Cottontale and Stefan Ponce handle the production.

Over the weekend, two of Chicago’s finest (Chance and BJ The Chicago Kid) hit the studio together to work on what sounds like revised version of this joint that Chance debuted at Bottom Lounge last week. Luckily, our homie Wavy Greenberg was on hand to catch it all on film for the latest installment of his In The Studio With series. I don’t know about y’all, but we’re definitely excited to hear the end result of this session.
Acid Rap coming sooner than you think.
Produced by BINK!
BJ’s been pretty quiet since joining the legendary Motown Records, but that changes today as he decided to unleash this new joint featuring Bink Dog on the beat. I don’t know about y’all, but I wouldn’t mind hearing more from BJ and Bink.

BJ The Chicago Kid lends some vocals to track nine from Casey Veggies’ freshly released Life Changes. Who knew ulterior motives could sound so good? Check it out below.
As you should know by now, BJ The Chicago Kid inked a major label deal with Motown back in August. Well, the ball is rolling on his project, which is expected to drop in early 2013. The label is planning to rerelease his very great Pineapple Now-Laters, which will be remixed, remastered and feature new records.
Motown has decided to move on BJ’s “Good Luv’n,” produced by Dae Dae and JMo, as the very first single, which is now available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon. Look for a video and more info on the project to impact in the coming weeks/months. Glad to hear the ball is rolling with this one.
