Luigi – [2KBABY] ft. [Chief Keef]

2KBABY is an artist who I heard so much buzz about, but I never got around to checking out his music, somehow. Although Jack Harlow is an artist who can be considered the face of Louisville rap, there are so many incredible talents hailing from the Ville, and 2K is definitely a name you should keep in your head, and this was made obvious to me after I finally tuned in and realized what I was missing out on. He might still be scratching and clawing his way through the ranks of the music industry, but he already has a solidified foundation in the scene after working with numerous other artists including G Herbo, Marshmello, and others as well as a few other promising collaborations on the way with names like Murda Beatz. Most recently, the song that finally got me to listen up and pay attention was “Luigi”, 2K’s latest track with Chicago icon Chief Keef, so when I saw this record and Jay Pusha-directed music video came out towards the end of last week, I couldn’t put it off any longer. In the instrumental, there are some optimistic, resilient piano keys that are brought to new levels once …

Behind The Scenes of Nardo Wick’s “Who Want Smoke??” Music Video

Enjoy this behind-the-scenes footage of the “Who Want Smoke??” music video by Nardo Wick, Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and G Herbo!

Who Want Smoke Remix – [Nardo Wick] x [Lil Durk] x [21 Savage] x [G Herbo]

Nardo Wick has been a rising star in the music industry for a minute now, but I feel like he’s about to really blow up with the help of his brand new music video for “Who Want Smoke Remix” featuring Lil Durk, 21 Savage, and G Herbo. Just by looking at this lineup of superstars talents on the same song, you can assume that it’s going to be a hit, but trust me when I say that it will exceed your expectations. Lyrical Lemonade CEO + video director Cole Bennett did his f*cking thing on this one, this is one of the most action-packed LL videos that I have ever seen, it’s definitely one of my favorite of recent memory. This video just has the feel of an instant LL classic, don’t take my word for it though, watch it below! produced by emkay

Bout it – [Nolimit Wet] [G Herbo]

It’s a rarity to find somebody in the music industry that can match the raw energy that G Herbo brings in every piece he’s a part of, but fellow Nolimit member Nolimit Wet does just that, with release of their newest duet, “Bout It,” with an accompanying visual releasing yesterday (September 20) directed by Kevin Mares. The visual brings a vintage feel, with inverted colors and blurred epileptic colors to go along with scenes of nightlife with the crew posted with luxury vehicles in a unoccupied city block, as the duo spit relentless bars of street life and successes that provide alternative paths. The track is a fast-paced heater, with uncut and unfiltered fire coming from Nolimit Wet to start, and capped off by the legend that is G Herbo.

No Regrets – [Prince Coop]

If you go through my almost 1,000 articles over the past couple of years, you’ll quickly see that I have no shortage of love for the amazing artists putting on for Chicago. While I might write about huge names like Chance the Rapper, Kanye, Lil Durk, G Herbo, and others, I’m always on the hunt for up-and-coming acts that have been making waves on a more local level, and when the homie told me about the young talent, Prince Coop, I’ve been following along with his blossoming career ever since. Even though. He’s still in high school, he uses his youthfulness to his advantage in all of his records, and as he gears up for his upcoming EP Endless Summer that’s expected to drop in September, he decided to give us a sneak preview of what we can expect with the project’s first Datboigetro-produced single “No Regrets” as well as an amazing Alex DeGuzman-directed music video that I couldn’t help but write about. When it begins, Coop and his friends are hanging out on the front steps of his school debating their music tastes before the security guard comes out and politely asks them to leave. When this happens, Coop …

Cold World – [G Herbo]

When it comes to the music scene in Chicago, there are a few names that come to mind that you simply can’t forget about, and G Herbo is one of these artists. He has been making some of the most unbelievable music over the past few years and fans know this, but the fact that he has been shaping the sound of the city and paving the way for an entirely new generation of artists for so many years is truly one of the most notable accomplishments I think he has on his sonic resume. While his discography runs deep and very strong, I’m always excited to find out new music is being put out, so when his latest music video for his 25 cut “Cold War” was in our hands, I was definitely pumped, to say the least. I’m pretty sure LVTRRAW directed this flick, and when things open up, G Herbo finds himself in a barber chair getting a fresh hair cut while decked out in a Louis Vuitton barber’s gown. Every shot seems to take place in a dark film studio as bright lights shine from behind the camera, illuminating certain objects and garments they’re wearing in …

HOFFA – [Dave East] x [Harry Fraud]

New York’s finest Dave East & Harry Fraud have released their highly-anticipated HOFFA LP. All fourteen songs were produced by Fraud with strong features consisting of G Herbo, Benny the Butcher, Jim Jones, French Montana, Curren$y & more. In my opinion the album is East’s best yet, as Fraud employs the perfect mixture of  jazzy beats as well as banger inspired cuts. “The Disappearance” is one of the better openers that I’ve heard all year, and the project maintains its sheer quality all the way through. Unsurprisingly East’s delivery comes across as confident and poised as he sticks to his traditional flow that’s served him well since his mixtape days. Conceptually the content showcases Dave’s elevated status as street lyricism is met with tales of success to narrate a classic rags-to-riches story. While experimentation is refreshing to witness, HOFFA is the perfect antithesis case of an artist who excels by sticking to his roots. Moreover, the Kiing Shooter feature is not only a wholesome homage to East’s deceased friend, but also a testament to the New York loyalty that the rapper hasn’t abandoned since the very beginning of his career. Overall, from Harry’s absurdly good production, to Dave’s adept rapping, to …

I Don’t Wanna Die – [G Herbo]

At this point in time, it should come as no surprise that G Herbo is one of the most legendary artists to come out of Chicago. He has one of the strongest track records in music, and even before when he was releasing some of his acclaimed mixtapes while still hustling in the streets, he was making a legacy for himself that is going to go down in history. Just the other day, Herb decided to keep his legacy going stronger than ever with another incredible album entitled 25, which gives us a look inside of his life as he turns a quarter-century old and reflects on his journey thus far as well as the future. Alongside the album, he decided to highlight one of the most revealing songs on the project by dropping a child-directed music video for his record “I Don’t Wanna Die”. As chilling sound bites and ominous lyrics are sung out by what sounds like a children’s choir, the black and white visual begins with a little girl dancing around in a patch of grass with a flower. From here, we’re introduced to other characters like some kids in a school bus, other children playing in …

Warning – [Lil Eazzyy]

2020 was an absolutely massive year for Lil Eazzyy, and it goes without saying that he didn’t get complacent. “Onna Come Up” was clearly his breakout hit, but if the title suggested anything, it was the fact that he definitely wasn’t even close to where he wanted to be, and he still had a ways to go before he saw himself in the spotlight like he was envisioning. Regardless, it’s amazing to see his transformation from just a few short months ago until now, and his song “Warning” is just another hit in his arsenal of bangers. Although his mixtape Rookie of the Year came out almost two months ago, he wanted to keep the momentum going by dropping a visual for this incredible track, and I couldn’t have been more excited. Directed by SkiiiMobb and Yung Tada, the video opens with some drone shots of Eazzyy and his crew hanging out on an outdoor basketball court in a tropical setting as the bright sun beats down on them. Although there is no actual basketball in sight, Eazzyy and his boys bring the energy to the court, dancing around as animated sparks fly out at them, showing just how hot …

Teek – [21 Lil Harold]

Atlanta’s underground rap scene has been quietly lately and it has been a minute since a new artist captivated the city and pushed to the top of the mainstream with the city’s assistance but Slaughter Gang’s 21 Lil Harold is looking like the artist that has the necessary charisma, talent, and connections required to succeed in his cutthroat market. He turned to another one of rap’s holy cities, Memphis, to find the right sample to flip a Three Six Mafia song for his track “Teek” that is guaranteed to turn any party up and render your back mirror useless if you’re listening in the car. Lil Harold stormed back onto the scene earlier this year with his star-studded project Larry that featured many memorable songs including my favorite, “Johnny,” featuring GHerbo. It is only a matter of time until the city of Atlanta is screaming his name and births another star with ’21’ at the front of his name.
