King Samson – Morrisons

Drill rapper King Samson may be known for his dangerous lifestyle, but in 2018 he should be known for his work ethic. Two days into the year the Chicagoan posted his lasted visual “Morrisons” and two days later it’s doing numbers.

Like many of King Samson’s other songs Morrison’s documents his life as an active gang member. The 29 year old rapper teamed up with Rickee Arts for direction credits on the three minute and 45 second video. The visual is fairly standard as far as music videos these days, equipped with the rapper, several of his friends, expensive jewelry and firearms.

Despite, the rather rudimentary theme of the video “Morrisons” has still garnered the support of fans. The video has been watched on YouTube nearly 6,200 times.

Mz. JQ’s Nothing To Prove Visual

Over the years Mz. JQ has been a whole lot more than a DJ. The pint sized performer is lyricist, poet, activist, athlete, on-air talent and most recently on-screen beauty, as she debuts her first ever visual, “Nothing To Prove.”

The title track from her introductory mixtape, release early this summer, “Nothing To Prove” hasn’t come a moment too soon. The positive single, filmed under natural sunlight just feels right. The Chicagoan puts her own style on display under the direction of NickTheSoul of Soul Visuals.

G Herbo is the Humble Beast

After what seems like an eternity for his core fans, G Herbo finally debuted his first studio album entitled, Humble Beast.

Drill music fans across the globe are celebrating Humble Beast and thank goodness “I Like” isn’t indicative of the album’s sound. True to his Chicago roots, the artist formerly known as Lil Herb took listeners on a journey through the life of a gangster from “over east”.

Though, Chicago is no longer where G Herbo resides, this album is a reminder that it will always be home to the rapper. G Herbo mentions 79 and Essex more than once on Humble Beast, reassuring fans and the city that he hasn’t forgotten the streets that raised him.

G Herbo was accompanied on this album by two of today’s most pertinent acts, Lil Yatchy and Lil Uzi Vert. “Mirror” features fellow Chicago native Lil Bibby and in a creative twist the two share the same flow on the song. Chicago hip hop legend Bump J, flexes some lyric muscles for the song “Crown.” Chicago-based crooner Jeremih, also contributed some talent to this project.

Listen to Humble Beast now.

Everything but an overnight success, Bodi Deeder is a name almost synonymous with hip hop in Chicago. With years invested in the industry and having worked with everyone from Twista to Lani Pop, if nothing else Bodi Deeder knows his way around the studio and the city.

His latest offering is nothing short of a reminder of that, "In the Ghetto" was filmed by @AZaeProduction in the city Bodi Deeder calls home. The black and white masterpiece only adds emphasis to his lyrics and his distinctive voice makes the song impossible to forget.
