Hosted by Sean Mac

For the second installment of Naledge’s Brain Power¬†mixtape series, the former Kid In The Hall gets back to basics with big beats, and fun rhymes. It’s a great balance of party and conscious — the type of material you’ve grown to love from Naledge Born. Largely produced by Saint The Good Boy and M Stacks, Brain Power 2, finds Naledge making a lot of noise on his own, with some assistance from Bun B, Sulaiman, Vic Spencer, Willie The Kid, BJ The Chicago Kid, Highlife and Parkay.

There’s a lot of potential club anthems and thumpy, thick records akin to “The Lanipop Song” on here. Trust this is something you’ll want to wang in the whip. Stream it and download it below.

Naledge f/ Vic Spencer – Good Life

The Brainiac boss reconnects with one of his earliest Brainiac soldiers, Vic Spencer. And do remember, Naledge’s early A&R skills definitely raised awareness of now-revered Chicago emcees such as Vic Spencer, Vic Mensa, Highlife and Bighomie DOE. Glad these guys still find time to work with one another. The Brainiac Crew was strong asl (as the kids say). #neverforget.

Naledge’s Brain Power 2 will now drop on January 27th.

Naledge takes it out South with this new trunk rattler dedicated to Hayes Park. The Brainiac Boss recruits close comrades DJ MoonDawg and the Trill OG himself, Bun B, who laces the “63rd & Hayes” with a screwed up hook. It might be the coldest day of the last 20-some-odd years, but this is straight summertime droptop music right here. I guess it’s never too cold to fire up that grill, huh?

Produced by GoodBoy Beatz

Perception is everything. Or so they say. So what do you do until you get it how you want it? Well, you fake it til you make it, that’s how. But that’s not really what this song deals with — it’s more of Naledge just busting your ass on the mic, tbh.

Naledge’s Brain Power 2 project is due out on January 5th.

As we told you last week, Naledge is prepping the release of his latest project, Brain Power 2, at the top of the year (1/5/14), and until that street date you can expect a handful of joints to leak out — and today we get the stellar “Hole In My Soul” featuring Sulaiman.

More real rap from two of the Chi’s finest. And while Suli only provides the hook, both emcees make you feel something on this one.
