A Ben Staxx exclusive

Young Chop continues to pursue life as an artist, and he returns to FSD again today with a brand new joint titled “G.M.F.O.T.B.” What does that stand for? Well, you should read the artwork to figure that out. I don’t have to explain everything do I?

It’s still Fat Gang or No Gang over here. Enjoy Chop’s latest motivation music below.

Video: Fat Gang [Young Chop & King 100 James] – Eatin’ Good

Directed by Forman James. Produced by CBMIX.

If we’ve learned anything about the Fat Gang tandem over these past few months, we know one thing for sure: they’re eatin’ good. Chop and James are dining on the finest cuisine and making music together — naturally. Eat good, live good, and download that Fat Gang project. I can’t promise it won’t lead to heart disease. Dine in with new video, which you can now order off the menu above.

As you probably know by now, filming for Spike Lee’s ‘Chiraq’ commenced in Wicker Park and Englewood yesterday. Wicker music venue Double Door was transformed into ‘Da End Up’ early on yesterday for what some have said were live performance/club scenes featuring Nick Cannon’s character, Terror Tee.

While it’s not exactly 100% clear what was filmed at Double Door yesterday and last night, one thing is for sure — a few of Chicago’s own were in attendance. Vic Mensa, Stunt Taylor, Taylor Bennett, Young Chop, King 100 James, Hypno Carlito and Prince Eazy were all spotted on the set and can be seen in the pics below. It’s unclear whether any of those guys were involved in any of the scenes shot or if they were just there to check it out, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon.

In the meantime, check out some flicks from the set below and stay tuned.

As you may or may not know, filming for Spike Lee’s new film ‘Chiraq’ has officially kicked off and is currently taking place on the south side of the city and in the Wicker Park area. Yesterday, posters for a fictional show headlined by Terror Tee (Nick Cannon’s character in the film) and Little Lelex were spotted outside of Double Door, where it appears that filming is set to resume today.

According to DNAinfo, there will be a few street closures and some parking restrictions in the area today during filming:

According to bright orange fliers delivered to neighboring businesses and taped to street poles, filming will start Tuesday at 4 a.m. and last through 11 p.m.

Simulated gunfire could take place between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m. Tuesday, the flier warns. The Chicago Police Department will notify local districts before the simulated gunfire.

There will be no parking on the North Side of Pierce Avenue from Damen to Hoyne avenues; the south side of North Avenue from Damen to Hoyne, both sides of Milwaukee from Damen to Honore and both sides of Le Moyne Street from 2029-69 W. LeMoyne St.

From 8 to 11 p.m. Tuesday, there will be a full street closure on Damen Avenue from North Avenue to Pierce Street.

Actors John Cusack, Nick Cannon, Wesley Snipes, Lala Anthony, Angela Bassett, Felicia ‘Snoop’ Pearson and Harry Lennix have all been spotted in the city over the past few days.

Aside from filming beginning, work on the motion picture’s official soundtrack looks like it has also started. Instagram flicks and clips of King Louie, Lil Bibby and Sicko Mobb in the studio with Kosine of Da Internz (who is rumored to be working on the film’s soundtrack following the controversy with DJ Slugo) have been popping up over the past week. Nick Cannon was also recently spotted in the studio with Young Chop, Ty Money, King 100 James, Prince Eazy, MarVo and Hypno Carlito. No word yet on what exactly was being worked on, but I’m sure we’ll know soon.

In the meantime, check out a few pics and clips of King Louie, Sicko Mobb, Young Chop, Ty Money and Nick Cannon in the studio together below and stay tuned for more info on ‘Chiraq.’
