The Co-Star In Yoo

Cube and Com Sense, together at last. Some 20 years after their storied beef, the two legends have put their differences aside and have come together to star in the third installment of the Barbershop film series. Not that these guys haven’t been cool for years (Farrakhan squashed this almost immediately), but they have never recorded music together — that is until now. Today, they give us the first release from the Barbershop soundtrack, “Real People.” No, it’s not “Westside Slaughterhouse” and it’s certainly not “The Bitch In Yoo,” but it’s better late than never. The teenage AND adult me is smiling. How real is that?

Barbershop: The Next Cut releases April 15th. Check out “Real People” below.

Listen to @someguynamedty’s G.O.O.D. Music Tribute mix from ‘The Drive on Shade 45’

goodsunday

Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past few months, then you already know that FSD takes over Shade 45 on Sirius XM every Sunday night at 11pm CST for our weekly mixshow, The Drive on Shade 45 a.k.a. #TheDriveSXM.

Every Sunday, we play the best from the Midwest’s brightest in a hour-long mix put together by myself and feature a guest set from a special guest DJ from around the middle of the map. Last night, The Drive featured a very special guest set from Chicago’s own DJ Oreo who came through with a dope mix featuring music from  Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Calez and many more of the Chi’s brightest. Last night’s episode also featured a tribute to G.O.O.D. Music from myself, G.O.O.D. Sunday, featuring some of my favorite joints from ‘Ye, Big Sean, Common, Cudi and the G.O.O.D. familia.

Missed it? Don’t panic. You can listen to my mix from last night’s episode right here, right now. Check it out below and look for DJ Oreo’s mix to impact later today. Remember — The Drive airs each and every Sunday night at 11pm CST on Shade 45. Tell a friend to tell a friend.

It’s been almost 12 years since the last Barbershop movie was released. 12 years? Yeah, time flies. And not many movie franchises can stand to take off so much time and still come back strong, but that’s just what Cube plans to do with part 3, The Next Cut. 

The third installment arrives in theaters on April 15th and stars Chicago’s own Common Sense, Nicki Minaj, Eve, Cedric The Entertainer and others. It finds the gang back in the Chi, and you can now watch the trailer below.

And yes, 20 years after Common and Cube beefed and “The Bitch In Yoo” these two are starring in movies together. Who’d a thunk it?

The Twilite Tone f/ Common, King Louie & Lil Herb & More – Put The Guns Down

image65-820x820

Directed By Andre Mayon

Powerful music courtesy of Chicago Ideas Week. The group has been quietly working on this song and video for quite some time now and it’s finally come to fruition. The mission is simple: to curb the senseless and tragic gun violence plaguing the City of Chicago. And to help with that task they’ve secured a troop of the city’s best and brightest artists to take part: Common, King Louie, G Herbo, Katie Got Bandz, Saba, Tree, No Name Gypsy, Mic Terror, & Nick Jr. of Treated Crew.

The track was produced by the legendary The Twilite Tone and was executive produced by John Monopoly.

Says CIW:

If music can motivate someone to pick up a gun, can it inspire them to put the gun down? With this simple question, Music Versus Gun Violence was born – a social movement led by Chicago Ideas, Leo Burnett, and Grammy-nominated artist Anthony “The Twilite Tone” Kahn that aims to help prevent gun violence in Chicago through music.

Check out the touching and powerful video below and salute to all artists involved below.
