The honorable V-Dub drops off his latest single, which features King L and the Hood Ge3kz duo. “4 The Ratchets” is, well, for the ratchets. You ask them what they do and who they do it for? Well, look no further. Turn this one up to 11.
And don’t fret, a new V-Dub project is on the way.
Two of the Eastside’s finest and MMG’s Chicago resident hit the studio together last night and we may get to hear the end result soon. In case you didn’t know, Giftz is currently working on his latest project entitled Position Of Power and word has it that he got a little assistance from Rockie and Lou for “F**k ‘Em All”. Hopefully, we won’t have to wait too long to hear this one.

The three pillars of Chicago’s street rap scene, King Louie, Chief Keef and Lil Durk, have embarked on a small tour of sorts, entitled the Windy City Drift Tour. These three musketeers will be hitting select markets in the state and across the Midwest, and their first stop was Champaign, IL to rock for the students of U of I.
With GBE, OTF and the MUBU Gang all in the same place at the same time, things were sure to get interesting. Check out what you missed above.
A DJ Hustlenomics exclusive
The best of both Louis’? If your name is Lou, Louie, Louis or even Lew, then this one is for you. Or if you go straight gremlin for products made by the Vuitton family, then this is also in your wheel house.
This one comes courtesy of Hustlenomics, who has been quiet as of late, but will be back in full force over the next few days. Below the jump you can find another joint from Hustlenomics, this one comes from Sonny Black and it’s called “Little Mexico”
It’s that time of the week again. Do remember, that if the song dropped anytime since last Friday (4/12) it’s eligible for the list. Now we aren’t saying these are the BEST songs of the week, but they are the staffs faves and joints you can catch us bumping in the office.
King Louie and Mikey Dollaz connect over this hazy, Jay-Z sampling track from production duo Odd Couple, which serves as the first drop from their forthcoming Odd Couple Beat Tape project. The track also features Chicago musicians Big Colour.
Better late than never right? Lou’s DGainz-produced “Money Dance” has received the remix treatment courtesy of DJ Pharris and will be dropping pretty soon. Yo Gotti and French Montana lend verses to the remix, also.
Check out the track’s official artwork above and look for it to impact in the coming weeks.
Last month, King Louie embarked on a series entitled March Madness, where the rapper dropped 31 songs in 31 days. The experiment was to drop one song per day, but some days we got no songs, and other days we got five songs. So you’re forgiven if you missed a few of them (plus downloading 31 songs is a rather daunting task). But thanks to HipHopAddicts, we have every track, nicely packaged together in one file for your listening and downloading pleasure.
The project contains song titles, drop dates, and is sequenced by the day and times they were released. Hats off to them for that. Download the entire March Madness series below the jump.
Damn, I can’t even front — I’m kinda butthurt they let this one leak. I was hoping they’d keep this feather in their hat for Louie’s debut, Dope & Shrimp. Close to two years ago, when I hear the first incarnation of Louie’s Dope & Shrimp project, this was one of the standout cuts. And as this March Madness series comes to a close, they decided to bless the world with it.
For those who were curious as to what the sound of the original Dope & Shrimp was, this is a pretty solid gauge. I still believe D&S was one of the strongest mixtapes that was turned into an album that has now turned into something else completely to never be released. But let it be known that “Goldie With The Pimpin” was one of the best records from those sessions…and now you can hear it. I guess the record was getting somewhat dated, so they had to liberate it.
Also part of this last band of leaks is “Heaven,” which was also to be included on Dope & Shrimp. That and another leak by the name of “I’m In It” are below the cut.
…And this concludes Lawless Inc. and King Louie’s month long drill of new songs daily. I believe “Throw A Party,” might be the official swan song for March Madness, but we’ll see if anything else trickles out today. While Louie didn’t necessarily drop something new every single day, he easily dropped more than 31 songs within the month. Can somebody look that up for me and fact check?
That being said, a lot of these leaks contained collabos with Durk. So does that mean we’re still getting Project X, or nah? Either way, pitch it on a party to their latest drop.
