Achillez Delivers Shinsuke Nakamure

Nothing says resilience like working hard when most people would expect one to walk away. Resilient is the only way to describe Achillez, as he celebrates his new single “Shinsuke Nakamure.”

The first release from Achillez’s rapidly approaching project, Uncle Yekus, “Shinsuke Nakamure” is named for the Japanese wrestler and activist Achillez credits as his inspiration. The mello track features Broadway Boobie and is a reminder that Achillez’s talent and creativity are unmatched.

“Shinsuke Nakamure” debuted just shy of a month after the untimely passing of Achillez’s father. Despite his loss, Achillez has not only delivered a solid single, the lyricist has completed his latest project expected to be release the end of this month. According to the forward thinking artist, he has singles coming.

Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines Release Pink Gorilla

It is undisputed that Sunny Woodz works hard. The same goes for Clark Airlines. When that kind of work ethic gets mixed with their unlimited creativity the result is Pink Gorilla.No, not weed, a mixtape.

Today Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines debuted their joint mixtape Pink Gorilla. Nothing is impossible between Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines and Pink Gorilla is the affirmation that no one was looking for but everyone needed.

Pink Gorilla is nine tracks of versatility and talent. Creative beats laid the foundation for inevitable hits of relatable natures. “Pissed Off” features The Messiah and its a situation everyone has experienced at one time or another. When things just aren’t working in your favor, “Pissed Off” is proof that no one wins 100 percent of the time. “Sexy Lame” is for every attractive woman who may not necessarily be the most popular. It’s theme music for the pretty girls; no beat face, plastic surgery or validation necessary.

Arguably much to short, Pink Gorilla falls just short of the 25 minute mark. Fans could use another 25 minutes of Sunny Woodz and Clark Airlines, but for now this will have to do.

YDot GDot Crowns Miss Universe

When he isn’t touring the country as a dj, setting the vibes for a party, or hosting the most positive events in the city, YDot GDot is doing what made him an entertainer in the first place: music. Overnight, Chicago’s favorite nerd delivered another anthem for the ladies entitled “Miss Universe.”

“Miss Universe” is a fun, uptempo, feel good track. YDot GDot joined forces with FBG Young and Josh Arce over a Malcolm Flex beat and the result sounds a lot like spring break.

In typical YDot GDot fashion “Miss Universe” is nothing like what’s on the radio. Shying from the ever popular interlude length songs currently dominating airwaves, “Miss Universe” is more than three minutes long.

Losi and The Messiah Conduct A Demonstr8tion

Technically it’s spring and the weather is slowly, but surely, warming up in Chicago. For those who have lost faith in the weather and are looking for a quick way to heat things up, turn to music. The second quarter is in full swing and artists are putting out their best work to date. Losi and The Messiah are no different.

Nothing is better than a successful joint effort with an interesting visual and that’s exactly what “Demonstr8tion” is. “Demonstr8tion was produced by rising star, Slitta of 80Apes and filmed by Marquis Films.

Lyric’s Catch A Girl

Over the weekend singer Lyric debuted the visual for her latest single “Catch A Girl.”

“Catch A Girl” is about how a guy can seem perfect and the moment a girl falls for him, he’s gone with the wind. Produced by D. Brooks Exclusive, “Catch A Girl” unfortunately is a song too many can relate to.

While the lyrics are enough to put any girl in her feelings, the visual makes up for it. Lyric entertains three dates in the same arcade without remorse for any of it.

Ann Marie is Down to Ride

Preparing for tour obviously means going into overdrive for Chicago based songstress Ann Marie. In anticipation of her upcoming tour, the singer debuted her latest visual “Ride For Me.”

The fourth track on Ann Marie’s Tripolar 2, “Ride For Me” is a ballad that everyone can relate to. In just under three and a half minutes, Ann Marie explains that she’s in search of loyalty.

A joint effort with Columbia Records recording artist Yung Bleu, “Ride For Me” could easily be described as a duet. Ann Marie and Yung Bleu compliment each other well.

While Ann Marie and Yung Bleu’s voices compliment each other well their chemistry in the video is undeniable. A hood love story to say the very least, “Ride For Me” is the ultimate tale of love and loyalty.

Dev Walker – Wait A Dev Minute

Nearly two years after his last project, Dev Walker debuts Wait A Dev Minute.

Wait A Dev Minute is a nine of Dev’s personal remixes. The rapper, singer and songwriter put his spin on some of hip hop and rnb’s most popular songs and the result is staggering.

What was originally intended to be a compilation of one minute covers somehow grew into more than 15 minutes of some of Dev’s best lyricism and vocal work to date. Though a bit different from the original vision Wait A Dev Minute is still short. Despite being short Wait A Dev Minute features no short supply of the artist’s creativity. Dev uses a combination of singing and rapping to set himself apart from the artist who created the original works and fans are sure to be appreciative.

Hardly categorized as a singer or rapper, Dev Walker is certainly an entertainer and Wait A Dev Minute is evident of that. Nestled somewhere between lyrical effectiveness and vocal hypnosis, Wait A Dev Minute reestablishes Dev Walker’s versatility.
