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.

Ty Money & Wheatie-Fire Then Water

Chicago area artists are going harder than ever and Ty Money and Wheatie’s new release “Fire Then Water” is evidence.

“Fire Then Money” is Chicago through and through, from production to the visual, it is all a result of homegrown dexterity. Ty Money and Wheatie take turns displaying their lyrical aptitude over a foundation laid by super producer Hearon Trackz. The visual was the birthed by none other than create genius DGainz.

Just more than three minutes of some of the city’s most notable creativity, “Fire Then Water” proves that not only are Chicagoans talented, they can collaborate successfully. It is safe to say the city’s got another one.

Sunny Woodz & Chimeka Join Forces For Elevator One

Sunny Woodz and Chimeka on the same song is a match made in stoner heaven. The pair of Harvey natives teamed up to release “Elevator One.”

Laid back and smoke themed, “Elevtor One” is nothing short of what is to be expected from the two. Chimeka, the self-proclaimed unicorn, lent both lyrical storytelling and vocals to the track. So relaxed, one could almost get high just listening, “Elevator One” was produced by none other than Zen Zan Beats.

Chimeka channels Sunny Woodz’s vibe so well, it raises some questions: could Sunny Woodz and Chimeka be the dynamic duo Chicago music needs? Does the pair have more music coming? Why is Chimeka a unicorn? Does Sunny Woodz really get everybody way too high?

Hip Hop Celebrates Cinco de Money 3

Hip hip fans in Chicago celebrated Cinco de Mayo in a rather unique way. Rapper Ty Money debuted the third installment of his Cinco de Money series. 

The 12 track effort is homegrown, but establishes Ty Money as a global artist. Not only is Cinco de Money 3 lyrically impressive, the 29 year old suburbanite recruited a team of some of Chicago’s most noteable producers to create a sound that undeniably defines the Harvey native. Hearon Trackz, NovaCane and Chase Davis all lent production to one track each on Cinco de Money 3. Ty Money teamed up with RioMac to get under the Future/Metro Boomin’ act, the producer has four credits on the mixtape.

The lyricism on Cinco de Mayo 3 was certainly a Chicago affair, as well. “Yes or No” features Chicago legend Bump J who is newly released from prison. Another feature comes from Chimeka also known as ChinChillaMeek. Though not exactly a feature Twista appears on the mixtape as well. An interlude in which the hip hop legend compares Ty Money to Slick Rick is used as an interlude.
