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.

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.

Wale…It’s Complicated

Today, poetry reigns supreme as Wale returns lyricism to its rightful place in hip hop. The D.C. rapper debuted his latest effort It’s Complicated.

The four track release is Wale in his best light. Just less than 15 minutes , It’s Complicated is an appropriately titled examination of like, love and relationships in this day and age. The only credited feature goes to Cash Money crooner Jacquees and the pair may have created the new ride or die theme song with “Black Bonnie.”

It’s Complicated

Ridley Victoria – Tragic

Yesterday, Ridley Victoria debuted her highly anticipated new single “Tragic.”

Featuring Gritty and produced by EA Suavee, “Tragic” is Ridley Victoria’s declaration the money is the only motivation. For anyone who needs a jumpstart in the morning, feel free to thank the Indianapolis based beauty, because “Tragic” is theme music for anyone who is getting to the money.

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.
