Fresh off gigs opening for both Steve Aoki and Twista, Prob Cause and the Elephilms collective drop a new video for “Gotta Know”. The audio released a while back on here so you may have heard this one before, but check out the new visuals. If you enjoy dubstep you will most likely enjoy this.
Last night during DJ Izzo and VIPJ’s 4 turntable set Mikey Rocks decided to hop on the mic and give the crowd at Tonic Room a first listen to his latest freestyle over Travis Porter’s “Bring It Back”. Also performing at Tonic Room last night were Tennille and Boldy James, shit was crazy. Shout out to Sid from Jermaine Productions for the video.
Another KTD @ SXSW video, but this one was shot + edited by yours truly. The song in the video is Summerscent, which can be found on KTD’s “Hard Times” EP. If you reside in the Chi, you can scoop a copy at one of KTD’s shows, or at Sir and Madame @ 938 North Damen.
The lead track, “Celebration”, from Bighomie DOE’s Smoke Sum’n Bitch 2 is finally here, in video form at least. Produced by Troy P of HustleSquad “Celebration” is that typical DOE club/street banger, yessuh! DOE and video crew dipped down to the A for a short stay and filmed a muh’fuggin music video! You wanna see more about DOE’s trip to Atlanta you can peep after the jump for a little video re-cap of the trip. #SSB2 drops VERY VERY soon, keep an eye out for that!
Davy Greenberg’s back with another one! This time The ISM GLC links up with BJ The Chicago kid for the ‘So Real’ visual from Love, Life and Loyalty. If you haven’t copped GLC’s album please do so ASAP, it’s definitely worth it.
Fresh off of the Kids These Days Hard Times release show last night Vic Mensa just keeps on applying pressure. The song Outta This World was featured on the Nike x STA mixtape City of Win which released in the fall congruent to the opening of the Basketball themed Six Points store. This Davy Greenberg directed clip is probably his best work yet, including shots of Vic’s crew hooping outside, a Whitney Young practice, and two very special scenes which I’d rather not reveal until you see them. This kid has insane talent and a pretty good screen presence to boot, in the words of TSS’s John Gotty “Vic Mensa is the fucking future” like it or not.
I was lucky enough to bump into Vic Mensa on Friday at Sir & Madame and he blessed me with an early viewing of this video. He shared with me that the setting of the video is an Orchard in Indiana that his mother used to take him to as a child and man does this setting POP. The colors in this video are crazy and really bring out what many would image autumn should ideally look like. I was also able to get a look at the artwork for the project Kids These Days is releasing in the very near future and was very impressed by the level of creativity that this band exudes constantly. If you are a fan of the song there is a download link for it below…
Kids These Days – My Days

This video is somewhat a breath of fresh air… doesn’t hurt that the song is dope either.

One things for sure, two things for certain, the L.E.P. Bogus Boys ran Chicago on Labor Day 2010. I may even have to declare this date Bogus Boy Day – a new Chicago Holiday. Alongside Polar Bear LaFlare, L.E.P. hit spots all across the City to shoot the video for “Handlin’ My Business”, which will be featured on Don’t Feed The Killaz Vol. 3, that drops on Halloween.
Da Visionaryz and Brandon “N2ition” Riley teamed up to direct this one of a kind clip, that features Gucci and Count trading bars over a Hi Tek-produced MONSTER. By the time I made it over to the shoot, L.E.P. and Gucci had completely shut down the Westside, within minutes of Gucci’s tour bus pulling in the parking lot next door to Uncle Remus’ on Madison & Central. The whole neighborhood came out, including the cops from down the street and some dude with an iguana (?). Hell, the staff from Uncle Remus’ even came over to see what all the fuss was about and passed out t-shirts to the artists, directors and onlookers. Once L.E.P. and Gucci emerged from the tour bus (which had LaFlare’s face plastered all over it – not exactly inconspicuous) the crowd erupted as if it was the damn Beatles. It was crazy. I’ve honestly never seen anything like it. Cops had to eventually put up yellow tape to keep the crowd under control – but all and all it was peaceful and pleasant shoot.
Bo Deal, Wooh Da Kid, NBA hopper Bobby Simmons, Morocco Vaughn and many others came out to support and get cameos. I’m looking forward to seeing what Da Visionaryz and Brandon do with this clip – it’s going to be something serious. No Big Mike.
