A few weeks back, Minister Louis Farrakhan held a city wide outreach, inviting influential Chicago rappers, industry representatives and street figures to an undisclosed location for round-table discussions on how to curb violence in Chicago and abroad. Longtime friend of FSD, Antwone Muhammad b.k.a. Twone Gabz, played a big part in helping spearhead and organize the event, so we reached out to him for details and to also relay the message of they’ve set out to accomplish.
On Aug 17th & 18th, Minister Louis Farrakhan invited Hip-Hop Artists & Street Organization Leaders to a two day event that began with a powerful message he delivered entitled “Troubled World & What Should We Be Doing;” followed by a dinner with everyone and ended with a group discussion the next day to address the violence in Chicago and abroad. Minister Farrakhan also addressed some of the beefs throughout the music and street community. Some of the artists in attendance to this event included Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli, No I.D., GLC, King Louie, Katie Got Bandz, G Count, Spenzo, Treated Crew, Hustle Simmons, Lil Reese and Fredo Santana. Antwone Muhammad a.k.a Twone Gabz was instrumental in helping to organize this event along with others. This two day event produced a surge of inspiration to many that attended. Minister Farrakhan is currently organizing with others throughout the entertainment industry as well as the street in effort to decrease the amount of violence that is sweeping through Chicago.

First, Drake performs a slowed down version of “Live & Die In Chicago” at the Drake vs. Lil Wayne show two nights ago. And then last night, Louie pops up in the club (The Mid) with Drake and the two of them perform “Till I Meet Selena” in the DJ booth. So what’s going on here exactly? A MUBU x OVO collabo in the works? Well, mums the word right now, but it seems these two have formed some sort of connection after meeting in Toronto a few weeks back.
My only question is, what’s next? Stay tuned is all I can say.
Tonight, the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour hit the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater in Tinley Park. Yo Gotti, Drake and Wayne all graced the stage, but Drizzy definitely won some Chicago support when he showed some love to two hometown hits — King Louie’s “Live & Die In Chicago” and Spenzo’s “WifeEr.” In the clips above and below, you can see Drake turning these two records into slow jams and then molding them into his set. Pretty big looks if you ask me. Well played, Driz.
During his recent stay in Toronto, Noisey caught up with King Louie at Gangster Burger to chop it up about working with Kanye, working on Yeezus, the late Pac Man’s influence on Chicago hip hop and more.
Check out the full interview above and be sure to grab Louie’s latest project, Tony, on iTunes.

ZMoney’s back with brand new music and for this latest joint, he collaborates with King Louie. About time, right? No word on if “Public” is set to appear on Z’s upcoming three disc project, 3mpire, but it’s certainly a banger.
Honestly, I can’t think of a better way to start the day than with new music from Z and Louie. Give “Public” a listen or two below and look for Z’s empire project to impact later this year.
Oakland emcee Philthy Rich enlists the help of Trav, Jim Jones and the Chi’s own King Louie for this new joint, lifted from Philthy’s new Sem City Money Man 2 mixtape.
Don’t forget — Tony, King Louie’s latest full length project, is available on iTunes now.
