The second edition of Chief Keef and producer DP Beats Almighty DP series is here. The first dropped back in April, and just a few months later they emerge with part deux. It’s 10 tracks deep featuring Chief Sosa over DP’s rattling instrumentals. Get into that below.Andrew Barber 0
Words by Carlos Arrieta (@LOSO.70)
It’s always hard to see when a group or partnership breaks up. No one enjoyed when the Diplomats had friction. Dipset always claimed to be “more than music.” It was a movement and it was upsetting to all hip-hop fans to see that movement stall due to internal conflict. “Powerful music” — that’s the way the Dips labeled themselves. “Powerful Music” is also the perfect way to describe the sound coming from a group of rappers from the Southside in the early part of this decade.
It was as if Chicago had its own Dipset. Only instead of talking about life in Harlem this group talked about what it was like to grow up on the Southside of Chicago. There was no official name for the group, but the loose collection consisted of Chief Keef, Lil Reese, Lil Durk, Fredo Santana and Young Chop. From “I Don’t Like,” to “Us,” to “Ls Anthem,” to “Traffic,” to “Right Here,” no other sound in Chicago was as widespread as there’s. That’s why it was so disheartening to hear about issues between Lil Durk and Chief Keef.FSD STAFF 0
Big Boss Fredo is in the giving mood this afternoon, as he’s blessed us with not one but two brand new visuals. The first alongside his blood cousin Keefer Sutherland, and the second a solo shot titled “How You Want It.” Both contain that menacing yet lovable snarl we’ve come to appreciate from Mr. Santana. Peep “Dope Game” above and “How You Want It” underneath.Andrew Barber 0
Travi$ Scott, Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd and Chief Keef Mozart on the same track? Here for it.
“Nightcrawler” serves as track seven on Travi$ Scott’s long-awaited Rodeo LP, which appears to have just hit the e-streets. Listen to “Nightcrawler” below and remember: Rodeo hits stores and iTunes this coming Friday (9/4). Cop two copies and tell your friends to do the same.Ty Howard 0
