FSD Feature: Who Runs The Show?


Words by Ryan Chandler (@NayrRyChi)

It takes a lot to be a successful hip-hop artist — a Chicago one at that. The creative process, costly studio time, and pesky politics can all get in the way. But there’s one thing that truly sets some artists apart from others, and it’s their ability to put on a show.

Go behind the scenes of Zona Man’s new video for “Mean To Me,” which features Lil Durk and the FreeBandz boss, Future. C-Sick handled the beat and it’s sure to be one that we won’t soon forget. Now thanks to this behind the scenes video, we can see what actually went down on set. Zona brought the whole East Side out, for real.

Zona’s No Advance project dropped just a few hours ago. Download and stream it right here.

Video: Lil Durk – Lord Don’t Make Me Do It

Directed by Eif Rivera. Produced by FKi.

Don’t make Durk do it, for the love of God. Don’t push him because he’s close to the edge, and in this clip he loses his head and finds himself stranded in the looney bin. You push him and he’ll react and that’s the gist of this one.

Check out the video above and be sure to cop his Remember My Name album out now on Def Jam Records.

On The Set: Zona Man f/ Future & Lil Durk – Mean To Me



While people were lined up for hours outside of The Shrine for Future’s free Salute The Fans show tonight, Future was with Chicago’s FBG representer Zona Man and Lil Durk putting together the official video for “Mean To Me.” The track, which was produced by C-Sick, serves as the latest single from Zona Man’s upcoming No Advance project and was recently featured on Drake and Oliver El-Khatib’s playlist for their OVO Sound Radio show on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio.

“Mean To Me” is definitely one of the records that I’ve been keeping on repeat lately, so I’m glad to see that it’s receiving the visual treatment. No word on when we can expect to see the finished product, but my guess would be soon. In the meantime, check out a few flicks from the set below.
