The Man, The Myth, The Luter. It definitely pains me to say that the last time we posted a brand new Mick Luter song was all of the way back in March of 2012. That’s over two years — far too long for the godbody rhymer Luter to be away. But sabbaticals be damned, Mick is back and is as crispy as the day we first heard his music.
We’re happy to announce that he has a project due out later this year titled Mansa Luter, which features all new material. What’s a Mansa you ask? Well, it means King of Kings. Meaning he’s claiming the crown. Today he makes his triumphant return alongside Tree with the soul trap heater, “Desert Eagle.” Duck and run. And don’t be scared to welcome Mick back. He doesn’t bite. Or does he?
Soul Trap. SaveMoney. What happens when you mesh the two camps together? Well, you get SoulMoney, that’s what. With Brian Fresco on the mic, and Tree on the tracks, these two have teamed up to drop an EP of epic proportions. No seriously, this joint is about to be crazy. Today they bless us with their first offering, the bleeding “Rose.”
The first look is this in-studio performance of “Rose.” Stop and smell them. It’s so glorious.

Last Saturday, we linked up with Noisey and Brisk Iced Tea for the Chicago installment of the Brisk Bodega series. We hate to beat a dead horse, so to speak, but this party was crackin’. No ifs, ands or buts about it. If you missed it we’re sorry to hear that. But we do have a nice little recap video for you, which you can now view above. Don’t miss our next event. You’ve been warned.
Double Door was the place to be Saturday night as Brisk Bodega took over the venue for it’s Chicago stop featuring DJ Mustard, DJ MoonDawg, Tree and the legendary Do Or Die.
DJ MoonDawg kicked the night off behind the 1′s and 2′s, while Tree hit the stage with Chris Crack in tow. Following MC Tree’s dope performance, westside veterans Do Or Die hit the stage and absolutely tore it down. DOD even brought a few special guests of their own — Buk of Psychodrama and DaWreck of Triple Darkness. Pretty legendary stuff, right? To close out the night, DJ Mustard took to the stage to run through his ever-growing catalogue of hits. On top of that, complimentary Brisk cocktails featuring the new Brisk Half & Half were being served up throughout the night. Yeah, shame on you if you didn’t RSVP and come out.
Check out a full photo recap below courtesy of Angie Mejia, which also includes some dope polaroid (yes, polaroid) stills from Manny Reel.
If you missed out on last night’s Brisk Bodega show at Double Door, co-curated by FSD, then we feel bad for you. It was nuts. Crazy. Bonkers. DJ Mustard, Tree, Do or Die, DJ MoonDawg. Free cocktails courtesy of Brisk? Man listen, it was real life mayhem up in the Double Door.
Today we have some footage of Tree doing his new single, “Don’t Een Care” at the show last night, and you can see just how much energy goes into this mans set. More recap footage coming soon. Shouts to Writers Wednesday for the clip.
We’re back with another one. It’s a busy summer for FSD, and today we announce yet another big event. This time we’ve partnered with Brisk Iced Tea and Noisey for the Chicago installment of the Brisk Bodega Tour. DJ Mustard is spearheading the event, as he’ll be in the house playing maestro for the crowd. He’ll be DJing and bringing out some very special guests for his Chicago set, so trust this is something you won’t want to miss. The best part? It’s free. The drinks? Also free. What more could you want?
Rounding out the bill are legendary Chicago trio Do or Die, who will be playing their first Chicago show as a trio in a VERY long time. Yes, we’re bringing you the legendary Do or Die. Picture that. Tree will also be bringing Soul Trap to the Bodega with a special live performance. And the evening will be hosted by DJ MoonDawg. It’s going to be major. And did we mention it was free? RSVP now. And we’ll see you there.

Ace B8gie impresses yet again, this time making waves alongside another one of Chicago’s finest, Tree, with the O.G. Bobby Johnson-produced, “Make Believe.” And yes, the Bobby Johnson is the same Bobby Johnson who produced Que’s “O.G. Bobby Johnson.” Got it?
The good news is that there is plenty more from Ace B8gie and Bobby Johnson on the way, and you can expect more from these two on B8gie’s upcoming, The B8gie Foo’ Blues EP, which drops this summer. Bobby also produced Ace’s “F*** A Plan B” which is still one of the best songs of the past six months.
Today, two of the most distinct voices in the city give us “Make Believe.” Straight truth serum. Give it a listen below.

One of my favorite records from Chris Crack and Tree’s collaborative effort, TreeSwag, is without a doubt “CUTS.” The beat knocks while the verbals cut deep. The good news? Today we have a video for it — featuring Crackavelli at his most flamboyant. It’s a true players holiday on this one. You earn bonus points if you spot the Twins senior picture. Ha!
Also, if you hadn’t heard already, Chris Crack is playing our next FSD + Red Bull Sound Select show at Reggies on June 11th. Juvenile is headlining, while Sicko Mobb, Kit and Supreme Cuts round out the bill. You can gain entry with a $3 RSVP right here, right now.
