King Louie


Yung Stakks f/ King Louie & Chella H – BYLU



Stakks, who a few weeks back dropped one of my favorite records of 2015 with “Stakk Money” (seriously you should check that out immediately), returns with another fastball this evening titled “BYLU,” which features heavy-hitters Chella H and King Louie.

Hey, the Doughboyz from Detroit warned you to Boss Your Life Up, and now Stakks is cementing that as a rule to live by. If you’re not bossing your life up, then what are you doing? My sentiments exactly. Enjoy this new one below.

In My Own Lane drops very soon.

Review: King Louie – Drilluminati 3: God of Drill


Review by Michael Lazenby (@mlazsr)

It’s been a big past few weeks for some of Chicago’s heaviest hitters with Chance and The Social Experiment and Lil Durk releasing long awaited albums. Not to be outdone, though, is King Louie, the self-professed God of Drill, in mixtape form with his powerful and sprawling Drilluminati 3: God of Drill. From the jump on the opening track “Rozay Flow,” Lou let’s you know that his life is a ‘motion picture.’ A fitting statement since D3 sounds like the perfect documentary precursor to Spike Lee’s Chiraq – showcasing Chicago’s variety of sounds with uncompromising force and honesty.

‘Chiraq’ Filming Under Way; King Louie, Sicko Mobb, Young Chop & More Reportedly Tapped For Soundtrack


As you may or may not know, filming for Spike Lee’s new film ‘Chiraq’ has officially kicked off and is currently taking place on the south side of the city and in the Wicker Park area. Yesterday, posters for a fictional show headlined by Terror Tee (Nick Cannon’s character in the film) and Little Lelex were spotted outside of Double Door, where it appears that filming is set to resume today.

According to DNAinfo, there will be a few street closures and some parking restrictions in the area today during filming:

According to bright orange fliers delivered to neighboring businesses and taped to street poles, filming will start Tuesday at 4 a.m. and last through 11 p.m.

Simulated gunfire could take place between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Tuesday, the flier warns. The Chicago Police Department will notify local districts before the simulated gunfire.

There will be no parking on the North Side of Pierce Avenue from Damen to Hoyne avenues; the south side of North Avenue from Damen to Hoyne, both sides of Milwaukee from Damen to Honore and both sides of Le Moyne Street from 2029-69 W. LeMoyne St.

From 8 to 11 p.m. Tuesday, there will be a full street closure on Damen Avenue from North Avenue to Pierce Street.

Actors John Cusack, Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Lala Anthony, Angela Bassett, Felicia ‘Snoop’ Pearson and Harry Lennix have all been spotted in the city over the past few days.

Aside from filming beginning, work on the motion picture’s official soundtrack looks like it has also started. Instagram flicks and clips of King Louie, Lil Bibby and Sicko Mobb in the studio with Kosine of Da Internz (who is rumored to be working on the film’s soundtrack following the controversy with DJ Slugo) have been popping up over the past week. Nick Cannon was also recently spotted in the studio with Young Chop, Ty Money, King 100 James, Prince Eazy, MarVo and Hypno Carlito. No word yet on what exactly was being worked on, but I’m sure we’ll know soon.

In the meantime, check out a few pics and clips of King Louie, Sicko Mobb, Young Chop, Ty Money and Nick Cannon in the studio together below and stay tuned for more info on ‘Chiraq.’

Drake Shouts Out Chicago Rappers, Performs Chief Keef’s “Faneto”

Last night, Drake and Future turned Chicago upside down as their Jungle Tour descended upon the United Center. As Drake does every time he’s in the Chi, he shouted out a number of Chicago rappers including Herb, Bibby, Louie, Mouse and Keef; and he even went right in to Keef’s red-hot (still!) track, “Faneto.” You can hear the crowd going crazy and singing aloud above and below. He hits it bar for bar. Now we just need that official OVO remix.

Can’t ever say Drake doesn’t know his Chicago stuff.
