Lil Bibby Talks Free Crack 3, Collabo Project w/ Lil Herb & Chiraq Soundtrack

In a rather candid interview with HipHopRevival, Lil Bibby touches on a number of engaging topics ranging from his new project Free Crack 3, to his long awaited collabo album with his partner in crime, Lil Herb.

Bibby reveals that Free Crack 3 is to feature a “bigger” sound as far as production, and says the overdue project with Lil Herb will be out at the end of this year or early next year. He also shares his thoughts on Spike Lee’s Chiraq movie, and says he was involved in the soundtrack.

FSD Feature: Chicago & This Year’s XXL Freshman Cover

Words by Mosh (@CMosh2)

Last Wednesday, XXL dropped their highly anticipated 2015 Freshman cover, and we were all hoping for another class similar to 2014, but instead, got possibly the most disappointing class yet. Tink became the seventh Chicago artist to make this highly touted list, joining Lupe Fiasco, Lil Bibby, Lil Durk, Chief Keef, Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper. Making the cover was great timing for Tink, as her highly-publicized and anticipated debut album, helmed by Timbaland, Think Tink, is due out later this year.

This is a well-deserved accolade for Tink from the team over at XXL, however they missed the mark on a few other up and coming artists who could’ve benefited from such exposure, most notably Mick Jenkins. After the success of The Water[s], it seemed like Mick was a lock for the cover, but apparently XXL thought otherwise. The Water[s] was received incredibly well by fans and critics alike, and was an excellent follow up to 2013’s Trees and Truths project. Shortly after the list dropped, Mick tweeted how “It doesn’t change the fact that ima keep comin wit it” and we don’t doubt it after his most recent single “P’s and Q’s.”

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.

Lil Bibby Signs To Kemosabe Records?

If seeing is believing, then Lil Bibby may have inked a deal with Dr. Luke’s Kemosabe Records.

Similar to how news of Vic Mensa’s signing to Roc Nation recently hit the e-streets with the iTunes release of “U Mad,” the speculation of Bibby’s deal with Kemosabe comes thanks to the iTunes release of the T.I.-assisted “Boy” as an official single (take a look at the screenshot below).

Is Bibby the latest to join the Kemosabe roster? We’re not sure, but one thing is for sure — Bibby’s currently working on his follow-up to 2014’s Free Crack 2, so you can expect to see and hear much more from the young emcee in the very near future.
