Our 50 Favorite Wiz Khalifa Songs

In the music world, influence manifests itself in many different ways. Whether it be sonically — changing the sounds that artists use and often creating some sort of new trend and/or subgenre in the process — or aesthetically — changing the “cool” styles in music and the lifestyles that artists speak about in their songs — influence can arrive packaged as a quick viral moment or a lasting flame, both of which hold value in their own rights.  Pittsburgh’s own, the Taylor Gang representative himself, Wiz Khalifa, is one of the rare talents who comes around and entirely shifts the culture in both of the aforementioned ways. Especially when he first came out, Wiz’s lanky, tattooed build and effortlessly cool stoner lifestyle made him a genuinely alluring artist, and while his personal style (snapbacks, the dyed patch of hair, etc.) was worthy of mention, the music was there to back it all up. Simply put, Wiz’s style, both on the mic and off, quickly set a standard for creatives and other artists to congregate toward, marking him as one of music’s most underrated culture-shifters of the last decade or so. Even further, beyond the influence that Wiz has had on a …

LL Presents TimHueman Torch Q&A

It’s always special when you come across yet another talented emcee from Chicago, and you have probably saw the name Tim Hueman Torch on our pages a few times over the past couple of months, and it’s because he is just that. Not only is Tim a talented rapper that can spit thought provoking lyrics but he is also an extremely smart individual who just thinks different than the average Joe. I recently brought Tim through the office to chop it up about his come up and what he’s been up to lately + much more, so go ahead and learn a thing or two about one of Chicago’s finest underground emcees. EM: Before we dive into the question can you give our readers who may not be familiar with you a brief introduction of yourself. TIM: I go by TimHueman Torch, I am twenty-six years old from the south side of Chicago. As far as music I went to Salem which was a performance-based school, I started out playing the trumpet & stuff like that. — EM: Can you speak on the experience of going to Salem? TIM: Salem was a very artistic school, it breeds some noble dudes like Rockie …

Bad Bitch – [Young Chop]

Chicago legend & super producer Young Chop is making his way back on our website this afternoon with his brand new offering titled “Bad Bitch”. As you all already know Young Chop has continued his creativeness with releasing some records of his own over the last couple of years or so, and although he has put out some heat up to this point, I believe that this is arguably his best joint to date. The production that he whipped up on this one absolutely smacked but what else can you expect from Chop at this point, he has been one of the leaders of not only the Chicago music community but the entire world for some years now. I strongly suggest that you check out this new song below and if you like it be sure to give him a follow on Twitter here.

Need Some Mo – [Rizzo Richie] feat. [Young Chop]

Chicago based emcee, Rizzo Richie and famed producer and label boss Young Chop link up for Richie’s video for his song, “Need Some Mo.” The video to the stand out track from Rizzo’s latest project focuses on the two emcee’s hyping each other up and sharing in the spotlight. Rizzo provides a hazy almost alien like voice to the track delivering a hypnotic chorus until Young Chop himself steps in to deliver a freestyle centered around his label head lifestyle. Hopefully we will see more videos from Rizzo Richie’s latest EP, Honolulu, released in November of last year. Make sure to keep your eye on Rizzo and the work that is being done over at Chop Squad Records. Watch Rizzo Richie’s video for “Need Some Mo” below and make sure to share this heat with your friends.  

Ugly – [Chuck Indigo]

Tennessee has a bustling hip-hop scene loaded with young talent and it feels like they are destined to blow up on a national level any day now…especially when they have Nashville-native Chuck Indigo putting in some serious work. Already his second release in 2019, Indigo follows up the pensive, jazzy “Talk My Shit”  with a more braggadocios effort in “Ugly.” Supported by a chiming yet booming, trap-inspired beat from AB (and a quick cameo from Stephen A. Smith) Indigo flexes his chops, spitting some unapologetically boastful bars,  like, “Put you in check like you verified.”  A wise man once said, “it’s not bragging if you can back it up,” and with that cool delivery, and the palpable confidence to match, Indigo does just that. No word on larger plans for this effort, but Indigo promises to have his “finger on the button all year” so expect more heat coming our way.

Watch Alchemist’s brand new interview on The Smokebox
