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.

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?
