Tag: BJ The Chicago Kid
Beej dropped by Real Late w/ Peter Rosenberg on Hot 97 earlier this week while in NYC for a Who’s Next concert with the station. They discuss BJ’s rise to fame, his struggles with the industry, and how he was finally able to make the waves of success he’s currently experiencing.
If you’re unfamiliar with BJ’s story, this is a must watch. His story is truly like a movie, and his success is well deserved.

Now this is my speed right here. A dope new original song from The Chicago Kid. Is it too much to ask for a tape or album full of these? Everyday is the weekend for BJ, but especially Wednesdays. Listen to him wax poetic about it with his latest weekly release below — you won’t be disappointed.
BJ the Chicago Kid and Sasha Go Hard remix one of our absolute favorite records from last year, “Gimme Mo.” Marcus Kincy handled the remix, which slows down the original version and turns it into more of a sultry record. This continues BJ’s recent onslaught, where he’s seemingly dropping new music every week. Grab the remix underneath. Give us more newnewss BJ. Ha!
Produced by Swiff D.
ScHoolboy and BJ’s “Studio” gets the remix treatment and a new verse from Nas. Hopefully, we’ll get a new collaboration from these three before the year ends. One can dream, right?
Listen to the “Studio” remix below.

One of Chicago’s dopest talents, BJ The Chicago Kid, pays homage to “King Heroin” by James Brown with this new visual endeavor you see above. Can we get a new BJ project already? He’s been heating up recently, seemingly dropping new content weekly, so it seems that something new is on the horizon. Hopefully so. It’s inevitable.
Produced by Mike&Keys and Dammo
BJ played a prominent role in ScHoolboy Q’s recent hit “Studio,” which is rapidly climbing the charts week after week (it’s a Top 40 Billboard hit.) So it’s only right that he starts unleashing his latest solo endeavors. The proper Motown follow up of Pineapple Now + Laters is long overdue.
The time is now, as today, BJ drops off this new joint featuring another Chicago crooner, Kobe, and they urge the girls to go. Go shorty. Check out this catchy Mike&Keys and Dammo-produced heater below.

Finally some newness from BJ. When is that Motown album dropping? Hopefully soon, as it has been far too long since we’ve received new music from The Chicago Kid. Today he puts his spin on “Thim Slick” with “Perfect.” Sounds flawless to me. Feast your eyes above.
Sidebar: After hearing Jeremih and BJ together on this track, it would be dope to hear more from these two in tandem. Wishful thinking, but damn.

To keep things rolling for the release of his R.O.M.E. LP, Pavy enlists the help of BJ The Chicago Kid and Thomas Mac for the project’s second single.
Take a ride with Pavy, BJ and Thomas below the jump. R.O.M.E. drops June 24th.
ScHoolboy Q took over Metro last night for the Oxymoron Tour’s sold-out Chicago stop and it definitely wasn’t a show to miss. Q’s TDE brethren Isaiah Rashad, HS87’s Audio Push and Def Jam emcee Vince Staples also hit the stage last night and did not disappoint. A few of the Chi’s own were also in attendance including Kembe X, Jean Deaux, DJ Oreo, Spenzo, Stefan Ponce and Taylor Bennett. Yeah, you can go ahead and kick yourself if you missed out.
The good people over at Pursuit of Dopeness were in the building last night and caught a bit of the action on film. Check out ScHoolboy bring out BJ The Chicago Kid for “Studio” above and catch Q performing the Nez & Rio-produced “Man Of The Year” below.
Look for more footage from Isaiah, Vince and Audio Push’s sets to impact right here later today.
