Lucci Vee & Queen Envi Star in Hi Bich

At 5pm, yesterday, Lucci Vee made waves the way only she can. The Chicago based rapper debuted her new video “Hi Bich” and it is short film gold.

A hood cinematic classic, “Hi Bich” stars the rapper/reality star alongside Queen Envi. A nod to Halle Berry and Natalie Desselle’s 1997 movie B.A.P.S. it is hilarious. Aside from the expected over abundance of Chicago slang, Lucci Vee and Queen Envi held true to the storyline and though updated to be much less tawdry than in the original movie, the costumes were on point.

Though the visual was awesome, the song is still the highlight of it it all. Perfectly matched, Lucci Vee and Queen Envi deliver hardcore, yet entertaining lyrics reminding the world that they may do things, but Chicago girls do it better.

Overnight, the world received a little r’n’b, Chicago style. At midnight, BJ The Chicago Kid debuted his latest release The Opening Ceremony.

Emphasis on a little r’n’b, The Opening Ceremony is only three tracks long. But not to worry those three tracks are 12 minutes of the most soul the music industry has had in a long time. Reminding the world exactly why BJ The Chicago Kid belongs at Motown Records.

A whole lot of love, in the physical and emotional sense, over melodies only the way BJ The Chicago Kid could deliver is the best way to describe The Opening Ceremony. Engaging all the way through, though fans would have appreciated more, that 12 minutes is just enough to get them through.

Chimeka’s Don’t Do Coke

Anyone in Chicago last night, but not at Subterranean, missed one hell of a show. Chimeka headlined the sold out Don’t Do Coke and it was dope.

The Harvey born artist formerly known as Chin Chilla Meek opened her show by establishing that she was changing the culture, and she did indeed. As the headliner or the show she performed first, encouraging fans to always show up on time and praising the acts to come after her.

While changing the culture, Chimeka took fans on a ride they won’t soon forget. With DJ BMan and a live band, the rapper/singer performed recent and past hits. Chimeka proved that real fans withstand rebranding and Chicago has the littest female rappers ever, when Shawnna joined her on stage. The two performed 2011’s “Fucked Up.”

Chimeka performed four of the six tracks from her most recent EP Cool, including her latest single, “Elevator Music,” which she performed twice. In a nod to incarcerated Harvey rapper Ty Money, the multitalented beauty performed 2016’s “Sibley XVI” and referred to him as the King of Sibley.

Who’s who in the City made up the audience of the self proclaimed unicorn’s sold out show. Don’t Do Coke was proof that hip hop is alive and well in Chicago, artist do support each other and Chicago knows how to come together and have a good time.

Ravyn Lenae – 4 Leaf Clover

Slumber parties, muscle cars and pool halls, Ravyn Lenae’s “4 Leaf Clover” visual is an eccentric blast from the past.

Making its debut this afternoon “4 Leaf Clover” is a taste a spring with some old school inspiration. While the song spawns from her February EP entitled Crush, the video could not have come at a better time. The weather in Ravyn Lenae’s hometown of Chicago is starting to feeling like “I never said we were together” and that’s pretty much the narrative.

While it seems the red haired singer’s latest video was inspired by the 50’s, and could not have been more perfectly themed, Ravyn Lenae’s talent is completely 2018.

Tammy Rivera Delivers Fate

At midnight, Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Star Tammy Rivera released her debut EP, Fate, putting the world in its feelings.

Producer by iconic RnB producer Rico Love, Fate chronicles the highs and lows of relationships. The combination of Rivera’s angelic voice, very public relationship and the musical genius is sure to put the entrepreneur on the map.

The seven track effort, though much too short, leaves nothing to be desired. An effective combination of uptempo tracks and ballads, Rivera’s talent shines through effortlessly.
