Video: Chance The Rapper & J. Cole Debut “Thotty” @ UIC’s Spark In The Park

Earlier this year, Chano hit Al Lindstrom’s Toca Tuesdays to premiere a new record titled “Thotty“. There weren’t many details surrounding the song at the time, but we suspected that the track featured or was produced by J. Cole due to Cole’s ad-libs heard in the radio-rip.

Fast forward to this past Thursday and Chance joined Cole onstage during UIC’s Spark In The Park 2014 to perform their collaboration in full. No word on if we’ll get to hear it in mp3 form soon, but we sure hope so.

Until then, check out the footage of Chance and Cole performing “Thotty” above. Thanks, Nav.

On August 21st, Colt 45 joined forces with Fake Shore Drive and 1833 Presents for a once in a lifetime Juicy J party/concert/extravaganza. We held court at Reggies Rock Club in Chicago for an action packed night featuring a secret live performance from the Juice Man, which included a revolving door of Chicago’s top stars.

Not only were fans, fam and lucky ticket winners treated to a freebie Juicy set, but also surprise appearances from the likes of Chance The Rapper, Jeremih and Katie Got Bandz. King Louie was also a surprise act on the bill, who tore the house down with his endless string of hits before Juicy graced the stage. Pulling it all together was the maestro for the night, DJ Victoriouz, who had the crowd going crazy with his spectacular DJ set.

It was a truly a night to remember. So if you attended and want to see a recap, or if you snoozed and want to see what you missed, we have a dope video above courtesy of Jack Edinger and Colt 45. Don’t miss the next one. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.

FOX 32 News Chicago

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.
