Cali-based artist Kyle appeared on the Social Experiment’s Surf earlier this year, and today Chance returns the feature favor with “Remember Me,” a new offering from his upcoming album, Smyle, which drops this Friday (10/2.) Chano shows up to offer some crooning on the hook and outro. This is a song you won’t soon forget. Get down to business below.Andrew Barber 0
Chance The Rapper covers Kanye’s “Family Business”
The final night of the Summer Ends Fest in Arizona had one of the craziest lineups of any stateside music festival in 2015. Kanye West, Chance, Vic and Travis all on the same bill? Yeah, the energy in there must’ve been insane last night. The good news is that our homies from Pursuit of Dopeness made the trip down there to take part in the action, and like they always do, they grabbed some footage for us. Aren’t they the best? Seriously, they’re always looking out with the goods, so salute to them.
Some of the highlights include Chance The Rapper and The Social Experiment covering Kanye’ unforgettable “Family Business.” As well as Kanye West joining Vic Mensa for “U Mad” and Travis Scott for “Piss On Your Grave.” You can feel the love through these cold YouTube links, for real. Hit the jump to watch it all.Andrew Barber 0

“Church,” the great, great new song by BJ The Chicago Kid, Chance The Rapper and Buddy gets an official visual. And these three definitely take them to church in this religious new clip. Preach, tabernacle, cathedral — all of that.
We can’t wait for BJ’s forthcoming album, In My Mind, which is hopefully due out late-Fall.Andrew Barber 0

It goes without saying that technology has changed the world in many ways. Music, in particular, has seen several advances in the past 15 years, having shifted from physical culture to download culture to streaming culture. The shift in technology has made it easier for artists to create their own platforms and fanbases, with eliminating the long-looming middleman.
Fans can give an artist’s name a quick Google search and immediately connect to their entire catalog. Finding information on your favorite musician is literally a double click away. Good or bad, it’s also broken down the walls of regionalism, making local sounds and scenes harder and harder to distinguish. Trap in Atlanta influenced Drill in Chicago, which has spread to NYC artists who now make a blend of the two (see: Bobby Shmurda.)Andrew Barber 0

In 2005, I launched Dynasty Podcasts as a platform for Chicago artist interviews and more. Since that time, I’ve been enormously fortunate to land interviews with the best emerging and established talent in Chicago, including artists and industry from the city’s thriving hip-hop community.FSD STAFF 0
