The G Count has been a staple in Chicago’s rap scene for well over a decade. Even longer, to be honest. Best known as one half (or one third) of the famed Chicago group, L.E.P. Bogus Boys, Count has long been crowned one of the best emcees in the city. His pen game is wicked, albeit grim, and is regarded as an emcee’s emcee. A throwback to the golden era with a new school twist. He’s a flawless story teller and writer, who has given us countless (no pun) gems over the years.
Unfortunately, the Bogus Boys called it quits in 2014, but their legacy will continue to live on through Count’s long-awaited solo project, Ugly, which drops today and was produced entirely by Chi City beatsmith Nascent.Andrew Barber 0
