Chimeka – Cool

After much anticipation and a private live experience, Chimeka delivered the first EP of a three part saga entitled Cool.

Just shy of 20 minutes long, Cool highlights the more laidback side of the Harvey native. A compilation of easy going track coving a range of topics from love and relationships to being a stoner, Cool undoubted proof that Chimeka is starting the year on the right foot.

Despite the self-proclaimed unicorn’s multiple talents, Cool still features the talents of some other well known Chicagoans. The Boy Illinois joins the beauty for a trip down memory lane on the song “90’s Love.” “Elevator Music” is a stoner anthem and joint effort between Chimeka and quite possibly the highest guy in Chicago, Sunny Woodz. Novacane and YF Beats were also sound those who lent production to the EP.

As Chimeka fans rejoice, new fans are certainly in the making behind the release of Cool. The anticipation for the rest of the trilogy has just gone through the roof.

eGo Jaleel is What They Want

Though he currently claims California and filmed his latest visual in Nevada, eGo Jaleel is definitely from Chicago.

Despite filming the video for his latest single, “What They Want,” in Las Vegas, the rapper’s style and creativity is indicative of his hometown. Though the desert sun and famous strip serve as the perfect visual representation of eGo Jaleel’s lyrics, his swagger is without a doubt Chicago born.

“What They Want” is three minutes and 15 seconds of self confidence produced by 25thHour. Under the direction of HighVision Films, the video conveys that thoroughly.

Pennjamin Bannekar Celebrates 1/11

Three years after, his last release Pennjamin Bannekar debuts his brand new EP befittingly entitled 1/11.

The Grand Rapids native has contributed his many musical to the projects of others during his hiatus, but fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief, now that 1/11 has arrived. It’s been a long time coming and though sure Penn is celebrating the music along with his fans, but he is celebrating his birthday as well.

1/11 is a creative compilation of eight of Pennjamin Bannekar’s best work, including the single “Alter Prayer.” Dhniera Blu, J. Hill and D2G make appearances on 1/11.

Corey Ether Gets Petty

Just last week singer/songwriter, rapper and producer Corey Ether debuted the visual for his latest single “Petty.” An ode to childish and outright outlandish behavior, “Petty” is certainly unique.

A joint effort from Corey Ether, UKnowCoby and KelzFreeAgent, “Petty” is more than four and a half minutes of documented bad behavior. The song was produced by Corey Ether and may very well be proof that while talented Corey Ether could use a lesson in moral behavior.

Chloé’s Unsubtle Thoughts

For her third release, Chloé joins forces with “Mr. Chi Town” himself, Phor. Chicago may very well have a new super duo behind the release of Chloé’s latest single “Unsubtle Thoughts.”

It takes a creative soul took twist the innocence of children’s characters to use them to use them to describe indecent souls and Chloé may have just established a monopoly on that. As her Day 28 campaign continues to gain momentum, Chloé delivers a lighthearted, yet suggestive third single bearing reference to a few of everyone’s favorite childhood stories.

Much like the thoughts Chloé describes, fans’ excitement over her pairing with tattoo artist and rapper Phor is unsubtle . Chloé has proven that her artistry alone is enough to send fans into a childlike frenzy, teaming up with the Vh1 famed lyricist and urban artist may just be more than fans bargained for. Phor gets in a on the fun making lyrical reference to Peter Pan on “Unsubtle Thoughts.”

King Samson – Morrisons

Drill rapper King Samson may be known for his dangerous lifestyle, but in 2018 he should be known for his work ethic. Two days into the year the Chicagoan posted his lasted visual “Morrisons” and two days later it’s doing numbers.

Like many of King Samson’s other songs Morrison’s documents his life as an active gang member. The 29 year old rapper teamed up with Rickee Arts for direction credits on the three minute and 45 second video. The visual is fairly standard as far as music videos these days, equipped with the rapper, several of his friends, expensive jewelry and firearms.

Despite, the rather rudimentary theme of the video “Morrisons” has still garnered the support of fans. The video has been watched on YouTube nearly 6,200 times.

Frenchy Moe

Chicago based rapper Frenchy Moe started 2018 working. It’s only three days into the year and so far he has released a new mixtape and video.
