Meet Neli Chanel

Neli Chanel maybe a new comer, but she is well on her way. The Chicagoan of many talents is making a name for herself on the music scene and the runway.

The model turned actress is suffering no shortage of talent or work. Neli Chanel has a unique voice, fierce look, and an undeniable star quality sure to make her unforgettable.

All of those facets come into play in Neli Chanel’s new visual “Love Me.” High fashion, bathtub scenes, and a fed up woman throwing belongs off a balcony could lead to “Love Me” being mistaken from a video from the 90s. Pair that with Neli Chanel’s sultry voice and lyrics that are all too relatable and Neli Chanel just might have a hit.

The ever growing popularity of “Love Me” isn’t coming a moment too soon. Neli Chanel is preparing to release her debut EP this fall.

Pre Dolla – Exotic Trees

Everyone is passionate about something and according to Pre Dolla’s latest, his passion is weed. The Chicago based artist recently released the visual for his ode to good bud entitled “Exotic Trees.”

It’s been said that music is a universal and same has been said about smoking pot. It only makes sense that some one would make a song about getting stoned. Pre Dolla executed the undertaking in a way only he could.

A song that’s likely to cross cultures deserves an equally as uniting visual. Pre Dolla filmed his “Exotic Trees” video in Las Vegas, Nevada and it could not have been more befitting. The perfect double entendre, the “Exotic Trees” visual features a ton of palm trees.

SRT Kazzy – Astronaut

SRT Kazzy is a success story, if one was ever told. Diagnosed with cancer as a child, Kazzy learned perseverance early on. After beating the disease, equipped with a new lease on life Kazzy found his calling in music.

SRT Kazzy’s sound is just as unique as his story. The Chicagoan combines animated lyrics, melodies,and drill inspiration in a way only he can. His breakout single “Astronaut” is evidence.

Catchy, but not repetitive “Astronaut” is almost hypnotic. The visual is inundated with space references, including aliens.

Heir Jordan – Financial Aid

In an era full people competing to see which gender can care less, it’s nice to hear people celebrate one another. That’s the route Heir Jordan takes with “Financial Aid.”

The Paterson, New Jersey native took a note from the iconic New Orleans bounce scene, sampling Magnolia Shorty’s “Smoking Gun.” “Financial Aid” is a fun, uptempo track sure to make any woman working hard to be successful feel good. Heir Jordan proclaims that his woman has it all figured out: she takes care of herself, so he takes care of her.

Spawning from the album Makeup>Sex, “Financial Aid” is just a peak at the creativity Heir Jordan is pouring into the world.

Justin Famous Decides to Run It Up

Justin Famous did not come to play, and he certainly did not come to lose. The near Westside native debut his new single “Run It Up,” today.

Justin Famous is undeniably in a lane of his own. His sound is an eclectic blend of hip-hop, soul and r’n’b that separates him from the sounds currently dominating hip-hop. A true lyricist, Justin Famous’s music is more than just entertaining, it’s thought provoking and “Run It Up” is evidence.

The first single from his upcoming EP Day Dreamin’, “Run It Up is catchy, but not shallow. An inner conflict over music, “Run It Up” is the multitalented, rapper, producer, and songwriter evaluating the choices he’s making and how they’re going to effect his future.

Far from the standard and far above average Justin Famous is an artist to get to know.
