Play King – [Dre Izaya]

By Elliot Montanez // 18 Nov 2018

A Chicago based artist that goes by the name of Dre Izaya recently released a new song titled “Play King”, so i thought why not share it with our audience? I was impressed how Dre just steeped up to the plate right away and didn’t hold back i the least but, once he got a grip of this self-produced instrumental he found the perfect pocket and rode it out for the duration of the track.

Ready For A War – [Qari]

By Elliot Montanez // 18 Nov 2018

I believe out of all of the great music that has been coming out of Chicago this year, Qari is in the conversation for having one of the strongest years, and tonight he is back with the release of his brand new song titled “Ready For A War”. Once I clicked play and got a glimpse of the addicting production from Mulatto I knew Qari was about to snap based on their history, and sure enough he beat up the instrumental with some viscous rhymes, showing off his gifted lyrical ability on his way to making this awesome track.
