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is the answer to all those that believe the classic boom bap, soulful groove centered style of rap music is dead or outdated.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.

Man, this video is quite aesthetically pleasing, filmed at Five Points in Queens. A dope area that surprisingly hasn’t been ratted out by 1000 videos. But maybe it has and I just missed it. Either way, check out the clip above and download Paypa’s latest project here.

The interludes on this are good. Fame and Paypa collide to talk about “Pride” and change. Dope record if you ask me.
MTV recently caught up with Chi city’s own Da Internz, who spoke about producing “I Would” from Justin Bieber’s Believe Acoustic album. The track was produced by Da Internz and the late Aaron Michael Cox, while fellow Chicago representative (and XXL Freshmen nominee) Paypa wrote the record along with Def Jam/Artium artist Sir Elijah Blake (formerly known as Red Stylez).
The track is one of the three new tracks on Bieber’s album, so be sure to cop the LP and check it out. Congrats to Tuo, Kosine and Paypa for the placement.

While recording at the Boom Boom Room in Burbank, CA, Paypa decided to cook a quick a visual for track twelve from his latest release — HOTR3: King Jong Ill. Haven’t given the project a listen yet? Do yourself a favor and change that now.
The third installment in Paypa’s Henny On The Rocks mixtape series may be a day late, but you can’t rush greatness. Crafted more so as a free album, the Windy city representative is looking to solidify his rightful spot in today’s hip hop scene. Jahlil Beats, Bink!, Cardiak and more provide production while Curtains, French Montana, Crooked I, Los and more lend guest verses.

Paypa and Los turn their backs (literally) on those individuals and things not worthy for this fresh visual. There might be a bunch of things they don’t fuck with, but this track is one that I do. Look for this joint to be featured on Paypa’s Kim Jong Ill: Henny On The Rocks 3, due out next Wednesday.

Paypa takes us to the rooftop of his crib to reflect on everything that’s gone down with him over the past few years. From his struggles to his victories, Paypa rehashes it all. Rick Ross, Raekwon, The Game, Akon, ASAP Rocky, Jim Jones, DJ Khaled, Los, Emilio Rojas, Ray J, Shontelle and Da Internz all make cameos. Yeah, he wants everythang.
