Last night, FSD and Red Bull Sound Select joined forces for our final event of 2016. Yes, it’s been an exciting year from the two brands, having curated events worldwide with the likes of Chief Keef, Jeremih, Soulja Boy, Smino, BJ The Chicago Kid, Too $hort, Playboi Carti, Joey Purp, Martin $ky, WarholSS, Femdot, Payroll Giovanni and many more.

But last night, we capped off an incredible year with our final installment, which served as our Holiday Party of sorts, highlighted by a reunion of the legendary Chicago duo The Cool Kids. Yes, that’s correct: Chuck and Mikey are back, and we brought their first reunion show in Chicago to Thalia Hall last night. The results? History. A sold out night, filled with love and incredible energy — and Holiday cheer. As you can tell from the pics and video below, it was an incredible night, and despite being up against odds such as a 3 degree temperature we still brought the city out. In a major way.

Payroll Giovanni and Femdot rounded out the bill, while someguynamedty and Owen Bones handled DJ duties. I have to admit, Femdot really stood out last night and there was a lot of buzz in the room about him. Expect big things from him in 2017.

It was truly a night to remember. We’ll be back in a few months for our official 2017 kickoff, but until then, enjoy the pics and clips below.

Here’s what it was like to see YG perform “FDT” alongside Jeremih in Los Angeles

As a Los Angeles resident obsessed with Chicago-based rap music, I was hyped to see Jeremih and Joey Purp at The Mayan at Fake Shore Drive & Red Bull Sound Select’s #30DaysInLA show. I didn’t expect to see YG, but it became the highlight of my week.

The Joey Purp mixtape iiiDrops is one of my favorite releases from the SaveMoney collective in recent memory. That’s saying something, of course, considering SaveMoney artists include rap stars like Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Towkio and Nico Segal (fka Donnie Trumpet). Plus, I had heard incredible things about what it was like to see Jeremih perform live. Needless to say, it wasn’t hard to convince multiple friends to join me for the gig.

None of the headliners disappointed and lived up to all my hopes and dreams from their energy. But here’s what hasn’t left my mind since leaving: I got to see Compton’s YG perform “Fuck Donald Trump” the same week that Trump was elected President of the United States.

Friday night, FSD descended upon LA to throw our biggest show to date alongside Red Bull Sound Select for their yearly 30 Days in LA concert series, which brings 30 concerts to the LA area for the entire month of November. It pairs the biggest headliners from around the world with the best rising talent in the Red Bull Sound Select pool, and this year did not disappoint.

Thanks to the success we’ve had within the Chicago market with Red Bull Sound Select, the artists and our concerts, they decided to let us do our thing in LA, so we had to bring our A-game. The bill boasted a stellar lineup, including a headlining performance from Jeremih, as well as a special guest set from Chief Keef. Joey Purp, Warhol.SS and DJ sets from someguynamedty and DJ Oreo rounded out the lineup for the sold out event. The show was held at the historic Mayan Theater in downtown Los Angeles, with over 1500 people in the house.

Fans who purchased tickets before sellout were treated to an unforgettable night including surprise appearances and performances from YG and The Game. It was truly a night to remember. So just know, that we’re just getting started. Expect more of the same around the globe in the future.

Smino premieres new Sango-produced track in Chicago

screen-shot-2016-10-21-at-11-21-51-am

Last night, Mick Jenkins and Smino had a homecoming of sorts, as their Quest For Love tour made a stop in Chicago — one of the final spots on their cross country run.

They, alongside Kweku Collins, sold out Thalia Hall and had the venue busting at the seams. The crowd was wild, and the performances were top notch. And as an added bonus, Smino blessed the crowd with the first listen of a brand new track he’s just recorded with Sango. The title of said track has yet to be revealed, but it’s clear this one is a winner — that’s all you really need to know.

Catch the live premiere below, courtesy of Red Bull Sound Select.
