What’s Spenzo’s life like? If you’ve ever asked yourself that question, you now can now have a birds eye view into the inner-workings of Young Spenz’s day-to-day life. In episode one, Spenzo and company do their thing at Nike’s World Basketball Festival which took place at 63rd St. Beach last month. The event was crazy, and Spenzo’s presence was definitely felt. Check out the recap above, and be on the lookout for his new project, #AheadOfMyTime, coming soon.
A few weeks back, Minister Louis Farrakhan held a city wide outreach, inviting influential Chicago rappers, industry representatives and street figures to an undisclosed location for round-table discussions on how to curb violence in Chicago and abroad. Longtime friend of FSD, Antwone Muhammad b.k.a. Twone Gabz, played a big part in helping spearhead and organize the event, so we reached out to him for details and to also relay the message of they’ve set out to accomplish.
On Aug 17th & 18th, Minister Louis Farrakhan invited Hip-Hop Artists & Street Organization Leaders to a two day event that began with a powerful message he delivered entitled “Troubled World & What Should We Be Doing;” followed by a dinner with everyone and ended with a group discussion the next day to address the violence in Chicago and abroad. Minister Farrakhan also addressed some of the beefs throughout the music and street community. Some of the artists in attendance to this event included Jay Electronica, Talib Kweli, No I.D., GLC, King Louie, Katie Got Bandz, G Count, Spenzo, Treated Crew, Hustle Simmons, Lil Reese and Fredo Santana. Antwone Muhammad a.k.a Twone Gabz was instrumental in helping to organize this event along with others. This two day event produced a surge of inspiration to many that attended. Minister Farrakhan is currently organizing with others throughout the entertainment industry as well as the street in effort to decrease the amount of violence that is sweeping through Chicago.

What’s better than one video for a dope record? Two videos, duh.
Today, Spenzo decided to unleash an alternate version of his video for the Young Chop-produced “Wife Er”. The release of this new clip follows Drake performing his own version of “Wife Er” while in Tinley Park for the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour over the weekend.
Perfect timing, right? Speaking of timing, Spenz’ Ahead Of My Time project is due out later this year.

Tonight, the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour hit the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater in Tinley Park. Yo Gotti, Drake and Wayne all graced the stage, but Drizzy definitely won some Chicago support when he showed some love to two hometown hits — King Louie’s “Live & Die In Chicago” and Spenzo’s “WifeEr.” In the clips above and below, you can see Drake turning these two records into slow jams and then molding them into his set. Pretty big looks if you ask me. Well played, Driz.

This is too clean. Here the Rich Crew don dada gives the world his latest anthem with “We Up.” The track has been solid, but the crispy new clip raises the bar even higher. Plus you gotta give Spenzo points for kicking it close quarters with that Alligator. I would’ve needed a stunt double for that one. We up, they up, advantage Spenz. Another job well done.

Spenzo has a few things he wants to let everyone know and he does so with his latest drop, ‘We Up”. Expect a video for this one to impact soon as well. Press play and listen up below.
