G Herbo. Com Sense. Chano. Need I say more?
After a few previews, Herb unleashes the official remix for “Fight Or Flight” from his Welcome To Fazoland project. A video for this record has already been filmed and is on the way, so stay tuned for that.
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.
So this is only a brief snippet of Lil Herb’s new single featuring two Chicago greats, Common and Chance The Rapper. But you get an idea of what to expect from the remix of “Fight or Flight.” Now we can hear Common’s verse, and see they didn’t tweak the song too much. Hopefully that joint will be dropping sooner than later. This is sure to shake a few things up as it’s a collabo of epic proportions.

Yesterday afternoon, Com Sense was back in Chicago to link up with two leaders of the new school, Lil Herb and Chance The Rapper, to shoot the video for Herb’s “Fight or Flight (Remix),” which was produced by Brian “All Day” Miller.
“Fight or Flight” was clearly a standout record from Herbo’s Welcome To Fazoland mixtape, and they’re really pouring the gasoline on it by adding Chance and Common to the official remix. The first part of the video shoot took place yesterday in various locales around the city, and we’re told Chance is set to film his scenes over the weekend.
Check out some flicks from day one below.
As you should know by now, Chatham’s own Chance The Rapper closed this year’s Lollapalooza with a crazy set at the Perry’s stage. Word has it that close to 60,000 people showed up for Chance’s set, which was also streamed live on redbull.tv for those who couldn’t make it out. Pretty crazy stuff.
Couldn’t make it out to Grant Park and missed the stream or just want to relive the experience? Well, now you can watch Chance’s full hour and fifteen minute set above. Thank us later.
Also, Austin Vesely was nice enough to liberate the dope Juke Juke Revolution graphic he created for Chance’s set. Check that out below the cut.
Last night, Chicago’s hometown hero, Chancellor Bennett, triumphantly returned to Grant Park for his second year in a row at Lollapalooza, and last night he closed out the three day fest by headlining the coveted closing slot at Perry’s stage. Chance ran through his growing catalog alongside a full band, singing ensemble, dancers (including Bop King DLow) and a light show to rival another one of Chicago’s greats, Kanye West.
And despite the mud and rain, Chance brought his supporters out in droves, who sang along throughout his set and partied like the weekend was coming to an end (spoiler alert: it was.) But one of the most shocking and surprising moments of Chance’s set was when the rapper brought out the legendary Robert Kelly, who helped him finish out the melody on “Acid Rain” and then went into his own mini-set including some bars from “Bump N Grind,” “The World’s Greatest” and “Ignition (Remix.)” So yeah, it was pretty wild. People were walking past Chance’s stage in disbelief, not knowing if the DJ was just running through some Kells hits, or if the Pied Piper was actually on stage.
All in all, it was a great outing, further cementing his place as one of the most major players in the music biz today. If you missed his set live and missed the livestream, we have some footage for you this morning. Sure, it’s not super high quality, but you get the idea. Well done Chano.
Cover boy Chano is back again with this week’s B-Side cover of the Chicago Reader. He’s one of Lollapalooza’s major players this year, so it’s only right they bring him back to the frontpage for this year’s festivities. Head over there to check out their full rundown of the happenings in Chicago this weekend. See you at the Fest.

It definitely won’t be a performance to miss, so be sure to catch the live stream at 8:30pm that night if you can’t make it out to Lolla.
Wow. Out of the blue, Chicago rap scientist Sulaiman just let go an 8-track project featuring all unreleased collaborations with the likes of Chance The Rapper, GLC, Caleb James, Vic Spencer, Gzus Piece, The GTW, Naledge, HighLife, Paypa and a slew of other talented artists. Suli is calling this The Mogs, which features some of his coldest unheard work from 2012 – 2013.
One of these gems is the unreleased collabo from Sulaiman and Chance The Rapper called “Fam And Foolies.” We’ll bring you Suli’s whole project in a minute, but first we had to unearth this monster of a collabo with Chance, because of well, the awesome Andrew Barber namedrop. Ha! Sorry, shameless plug. Stream this awesome joint below. No seriously, this joint is great.
