Po Pimpin’ ain’t easy. Fact. Even for guys like Tony. Nevertheless, King Louie returns, as Tony, for some pimp tales with “Tony Po Pimpin.” He slows it down a bit and channels that Westside Chi player music for this loose track he’s decided to unleash.
Louie’s pimp hand is strong, and he definitely lays the game down with this one. Drilluminati 3 will be dropping at the top of next year, so enjoy this new one (which won’t appear on the project) until then. Pimp on.
Despite what others might tell you, 2014 was a pretty great year for rap. At least in the Midwest. And as most of the influential bloggers and rap writers reside on the coasts, they tend to overlook the gems the Midwest has to offer. But that’s where we come in. That’s where we thrive. That’s our bread and butter.
It’s an interesting time for Chicago rap. Peace seems to be the motto of the moment, which is fantastic, as King Louie, Lil Durk and Chief Keef have all put their differences to the side in favor of working together and helping elevate the scene.
Just last night, King Louie and Lil Durk buried the hatchet and hit the lab together alongside Lil Mouse to work on some unspecified music. Nice to see these old pals back together and working again. And hopefully we get that music sooner than later.

Maturity comes with age and experience. And Chief Keef is showing much growth this week by not only squashing his alleged beef with the Migos, but also burying the hatchet with longtime rival and onetime friend King Louie and the MUBU Gang.
Details are scarce at this time, but as you can tell from the pictures above (with King Louie) and below (Bighomie DOE), both sides are on speaking terms and moving forward. Thankfully. Petty beefs should be put to bed — and it’s better to live in peace than in turmoil. Follow their lead, it’s worth it in the long run.
A DJ Mil Ticket Exclusive
Some new Louie, is always some good Louie, and today the King drops off a brand new single titled “Bandz, Bottles and Bitchez,” courtesy of Mil Ticket. These three things are obviously high atop Louie’s list of favorite things, so partake with him if you shall please.

Lov and Lou are here to tell the people about their pipe game. I have no further comment.
File under ‘things that make you go hmmm’.
Louie’s currently working on his new project, Drilluminati 3: God Of Drill, but that may not be all he’s been up to.
Update: Looks like this partnership is pretty official to me. The ink is forever.

One of my favorite songs finally gets the visual treatment. Asaad and Louie’s “Block Boy” is one of the standout tracks from Asaad’s Flowers II LP (which I hope you didn’t sleep on) and one of my favorite guest spots from Lou this year. Glad to see this joint got a video.
Press play and take a trip to Philly with Asaad and King Louie in the clip above.

Minnesota’s own ThatGuySoda grabs King Louie for “The Drought,” which you can check out in the clip above. You can find this record on Soda’s Brooklyn Park LP, available for stream and download here.
Dro City Krump grabs the mic and doesn’t look back on his rendition of “Errbody,” featuring his righthand man King Louie. And it’s nothing but a MUBU party. Looks like your invitation got lost in the mail.
