Ty Money’s Cinco de Money 4

The rap game has been watching Ty Money for years, but the rapper grabbed the world’s attention at the top of the year posing in front of Boogie Nights with a Porsche and a goat. The way Ty Money came into 2019 it was inevitable that he would be making waves and the Sibley God delivered. Yesterday, he debuted the fourth installment in his Cinco de Money saga.

Two years and a bid after its predecessor, Cinco de Money 4 sounds like Ty Money hasn’t missed a day. The 13 track effort effectively reestablishes Ty Money as one of the best and most versatile artists in the industry. One could easily assume Ty Money has taken on the task of reviving Chicago’s street rap and is successful.

Abrasive lyrics matched with narratives of street life are the cornerstone of the Cinco de Money chronicles and 4 has taken that to new heights. Cinco de Money 4 is a soundtrack for anyone elevating their position in the street or any other context for that matter.

In typical, Ty Money fashion Cinco de Money 4 is riddled with references to his beloved hometown of Harvey, shedding light on the hood, the bad and the ugly. Not only does he rap about where he’s from, Ty Money shares the wealth working with producers from the Chicagoland area as well including YF and Law Beatz. It goes without saying that he has once again teamed up RioMac, reminding the world that they are an unstoppable duo.

Ty Money

It’s been a hell of a week for Harvey based rapper Ty Money. He started the week taking over the internet with images of himself with a goat and a Porché in front of the now defunct Arnies Idle Hour, a Harvey landmark. Thursday, Ty Money debut the visual for “Never Fair” with 147 Calboy. Yesterday, Ty Money brought it all together with release of Money, v. The State.

Anyone who knows anything about Harvey knows about Arnie’s Idle Hour. That fact made Arnie’s the logical choice for Ty Money’s first photo shoot of 2019. Ty Money has given several nods to the strip club, that now operates under the name Boogie Nights, over the years. As for the Porché and the goat, Ty Money is undoubtedly one the greatest artists to ever come from Harvey, so perhaps it all makes sense.

“Never Fair” is the perfect song to start the first quarter for Ty Money. The established rapper joined forces with up and comer 147 Calboy for and undeniable bop. Money stands firm on his rap style that fans have grown to know and love. His combination of storytelling and witty punchlines appears to be better than ever. 147 Calboy, though much less seasoned, appears to have no problem keeping up with his fellow 147 Street representative. Calboy delivers smart lyrics of his own, making “Never Fair” a must hear.

Ty Money kicked off the weekend with the release of Money, v. The State. A joint effort with DJ Victorious, Money, v. The State is five tracks of Ty Money at his best. The first body of work Ty Money has released since being released from jail fans can breathe easy knowing that the King of Sibley is back and better than ever.

Chimeka is Not Crazy

Today, Chimeka debuted the second part to her highly anticipated EP trio entitled Crazy.

The nine track effort takes fans on a journey through the inner workings of the unicorn’s mind. Crazy opens with a reflection on how she knew as a child that she wasn’t crazy, she was different. She shares that difference via a creative combination of lyricism and vocal talent only the way Chimeka could.

Crazy reiterates that Chimeka is in a lane all her own. The multitalented beauty addresses a plethora of issues, providing her own colorful commentary. The Harvey-based singer, rapper and unicorn displays a level of unprecedented versatility, delivering melodies equally as strong as her lyrics and as important to this project as the subject matter.

While Chimeka’s talent was never up for debate, Crazy is reminder that the femcee has more than enough talent to stand on her own. Though she needs no one to bolster her, Chimeka recruited the highly decorated Keith James and up and comer Solo The Dweeb in the only supporting roles for this project.

With her talent on full display Chimeka shines a light on herself, of which she is undoubtedly deserving. A perfectly planned step up from her last release, Crazy only increases the hype for Chimeka’s next release. Though fans will be antsier than ever, it’s best that they muster the patience to enjoy Crazy in all of it’s 25 minute glory. To describe the project as solid would be an understatement, Crazy is definitely a hit.

Ty Money’s First Day Out

Beach days, music festivals and sunshine are in no short supply and to most people that would mean summer is still in full swing. However for a lot of rappers, summer just came to a screeching halt. Chicago area rapper Ty Money was recently completed a prison sentence and today he premiered his new visual “First Day Out.”

Looking like he hasn’t missed a meal and sounding like he hasn’t missed a beat, Ty Money’s “First Day Out” is exactly what the game has been missing. With the King of Sibley finally free, the sound of the summer is certain about to change.

Produced by RioMac and visual by Toinne Tarantino “First Day Out” is evidence that Ty Money did not come to play.

Chimeka Celebrates Champagne Showers

If there’s an artist in Chicago working harder than Chimeka please point them out. The multitalented artist just released her latest visual, “Champagne Showers,” and it could not be better.

Subtitles, firearms and lots of money would be a very accurate description of the Harvey native’s latest. Direction of the mini movie was a joint effort between the unicorn herself and Stripmall, which just goes to show Chimeka really can do it all.

Speaking of doing it all, earlier this week Chimeka held a private interactive viewing experience called “Pizza and Movie.” The creative experience, which of course was a hit, just goes to show hard work, talent and creativity are all you really need to put your city on the map.

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.

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.
