Looking for Ballout and Fredo? Chances are, you can find them active on Instagram. Don’t believe me? Well, they wrote a song about it. Want to hear it? Well, here it goes. I can assure you that I don’t have any more questions.
Look for new projects from both of these GBE representatives to drop soon.

It’s a GBE affair as SD and Ballout connect for this new clip, presumably from SD’s forthcoming Life Of A Savage 3 mixtape. No word on when LOAS3 will drop, but Ballout’s new mixtape is also on the way.
Presented by Trap-A-Holics, DJ Victoriouz & DJ Twin.
Fredo Santana’s follow-up to It’s A Scary Sight is finally here. Fat Trel, Chief Keef, Future, Young Scooter, Lil Durk, Juelz Santana and more all show up to lend a helping hand. Stream/download below.
Trinidad James took over Reggie’s for the Windy city stop on his 11 city tour and a brought of few of Chicago’s own along with him. Before performing “All Good Everything”, GBE took the stage and joined Trinidad to run through some of Chief Keef’s tracks.
Earlier in the night, Chance The Rapper surprised everyone with a quick set and Trinidad bought out King Louie on stage. If you missed it, catch a bit of what went down up top.
Produced by Will-A-Fool.
GBE’s SD decided to liberate a new joint and no, it isn’t a remix of Big Sean’s current single. This one goes.
Update: Revised, mixed and mastered version. This one is a banger…

In 2012, Chicago emerged as the ‘it’ city in hip-hop. We’ve witnessed unknown-12-months-ago artists become household names, with many receiving critical acclaim for their mixtapes, and others landing the biggest prize of them all — major label record deals. With all of the accolades and praise Chicago rappers have garnered this year, one of the most important players wasn’t even a rapper — he was a producer — and his contributions played a big part in this recent resurgence.
The GBE collective’s new compilation, For Greater Glory Vol. 2 is upon us. The mixtape, hosted by Trap-A-Holics and DJ Hustlenomics. For the second installment, the gangs all here including Keef, Reese, SD, Durk, Fredo, Tray Savage, Gino Marley and of course Young Chop. Some new records, and a few you’ve heard before.
