Keenan Davis Gave the Crew an Interlude

Keenan Davis’s latest release is the definition of smooth. “Crew’s Interlude” is two minutes of melodies and lyrics that’s worth a listen.

There’s no polite way to suggest that someone should love the crew, but the Southside representative made the less than appealing proposition so listener friendly, it wouldn’t be surprising if the request was obliged. The 27 year old performer certainly put his versatility on display with “Crew’s Interlude” and he definitely did not disappoint.

Queen Key – Slide Remix

Queen Key fans can finally breathe a sigh of relief. Today, the Chicagoan debuted the video for her remix to FBG Duck’s hit “Slide.”

With plenty of notoriety from the release of the original, it was only right that Queen Key make her own rendition of “Slide.” Now after a week of teasers and getting fans hopes up, the visual has finally arrived.

In typical Queen Key fashion, “Slide” mixed hard core lyrics with a whole lot of girl power. The dimpled beauty’s own brand of feminism shines through as she celebrates surrounded by women and the one and only Chance The Rapper.

Chicago’s Rider: Audrey Valentine

Audrey Valentine is the definition of life long passion. Singing since she was four, Valentine is now sharing her talent with the world and helping to put Chicago on the map in the process.

Inspiration by music greats Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston, Valentine’s passion for Music stared as a toddler and continued to grow throughout her youth. At thirteen, she went from songbird to songwriting when she started writing her own lyrics. As a college student, Valentine decided to turn her passion into a paycheck, pursing music full time.

In 2015, Valentine introduced herself and her sound to the world with her debut EP Love Hangover. Since then, she’s been a grind mode. Currently, Audrey Valentine is working on her upcoming project The Forbidden Fruit, slated for release this summer.

In the meantime, she’s promoting her single “Rider.” Produced by Epidemic and written by Valentine, the sexy single is exactly what Chicago’s music scene needs. The visual was filmed by A Zae Production.

Sunny Woodz is Headed to Paradise

Sunny Woodz has an affinity to perfect timing. As college students near and far flock to sand and sunshine, the Chicagoland native presents his latest release “Paradise.”

Though Chicago is having a hard time escaping the winter, Sunny Woodz and a few of his friends are taking fans on a mental vacation. Production was a tandem effort from Zen Zan Beats and YF Beatz. Chimera, Twista and Kembe X contributed lyrics to “Paradise.”

A three minute reminder that with good music, the right attitude, and a little weed smoke you can go anywhere in your mind.

Chimeka – Look Alive Remix

Yesterday, Chimeka took to Instagram to announce she’d be releasing new content and today she delivered. Her latest release is a remix to BlocBoy JB’s “Look Alive.”

Throwing money, eating weed out of a cereal bowl and dancing with her dog like a boss, Chimeka reminds the world that in a city full of male rappers females still hold their own. The Harvey born beauty stars in her latest video as her alter ego Murda Meek and leaves nothing to be desired.

Chimeka’s “Look Alive” remix was the perfect opportunity for the multitalented artist to establish her lyrical dominance and she did just that. So much more than a pretty face, Chimeka is a musical force to be reckoned with and if “Look Alive” is any indication of what the rest of 2018 holds her fans are in for a treat.

New Ara’s No Spark

On the off chance anyone was concerned about Chicago running out of creativity, I present to you New Ara.

Far from a new comer to the music scene, New Ara is rather quickly approaching veteran status. The 25 year-old has been making waves since he was a teenager and his latest release is in line with that.

The visual for his latest single “No Spark,” premiered on Valentine’s Day. Almost as eclectic as New Ara himself, the video is creative combination of lighting and color. Effective in highlighting the song’s lyrics, the video is the creative genius of Ugly Ass Trapper. “No Spark” was produced by YF Beatz.

Overwhelming CCGmix

Over the weekend Chicago-based lyricist Hunnid debuted his first video of 2018, “Overwhelming CCGmix.”

The CCGmix, is Hunnid’s very own remix to Matt OX 2017 viral hit “Overwhelming.” Though he hails from the Windy City and the songs originator is from Philadelphia, Hunnid chose to use New York for his backdrop. It appears his fans could not careless where to video was filmed, as it has been viewed more than 5,400 times since it made its debut on Friday.
