Lennon grabs the rest of his Project Mayhem family for the song/video for “Gangsta.” In this one they’re out to show who the real enemy is and who the real gangstas are. Lennon’s new project, Hindsight, is due out in the very near future. No turning back now.

Off Paypa’s highly anticipated new seven-song EP, entirely produced by Soul Trap Tree — due out sometime in 2014.
Directed by Davy Greenberg
Great news for Paypa fans such as myself: he has a seven song EP with Tree about to drop called The Session. That’s right seven brand new songs all produced by the man of the hour, Tree. Today we get a taste of what we can expect with the Tree and Paypa collabortion, “Skyline.” Never look down. But do press play.
Skooda Chose links with Project Mayhem’s own Paypa own for this new record, which land on Skooda’s Best Of Chose Vol. 1. It’s not macaroni time, it’s winning time.
Best Of Chose drops next week. Expect Skooda’s Vulture Kulture project to drop after that. Stream/download below.

Minneapolis’ own Rocky Diamonds bring it to the Chi for the official “Day One” remix. YP and Marcus Moody (formerly known as Paypa) deliver solid verses on this joint, which was a standout from Rocky’s ArtOfficial project.
New projects from Rocky, Marcus and YP are scheduled to drop this year, so keep an ear out for those.
Paypaman of the Project Mayhem crew puts his own Westside spin on Daft Punk and Pharrell’s current hit “Get Lucky.” The beat for this one is a little hard to ride, but Paypa handles it like a boss. Get lucky below.
Shouts to DJ Geno
Follow Paypa as he and his entourage hop on a party bus (that looks like the one the Cash Money Millionaires had on MTV Cribs with the Slim and Baby headrests) and head to Hollywood’s Supper Club for a night of debauchery. Looked like a good time to me. You guys gotta start hitting us with the invites. The only conclusion is inclusion, Paypa.

Good news for Phil G fans — the tried and true Chi City spitter has a new mixtape on the way. Phil’s No Way project, hosted by Jay iLLa, is set to drop on March 27th alongside the video for the “Progressive (Remix).” And they’re not talking insurance.
“No Way” mixtape is the answer to all those that believe the classic boom bap, soulful groove centered style of rap music is dead or outdated. One listen to this project and you will be convinced that not only is it the style and aesthetic of hip hop music, it’s just as infectious and enjoyable in 2013 as it was in 1995, but is still marketable and attractive to listeners of many different ages and ethnic backgrounds or creeds. It is also to let everyone know that, YES YOU CAN be and do what you love and still be respected, appreciated, and admired in a time where most are following whatever they believe the standard is.
No Way will feature production and appearances from Sadat X, Project Mayhem, Chris Crack, Rashid Hadee, Grant Parks, Nascent, Karriem Riggins and many more. Get the first taste below.
