Nique Robinson’s Beautiful Thing

At a time when it seems like rap music could not be more depressing, Nique Robinson is offering something different. The Illinois based lyricist recently premiered his latest single “Beautiful Thing.”

Perfectly entitled, “Beautiful Thing” takes a more positive approach to life. According to Nique Robinson the song is about “finding the beauty in the struggle of being an aspiring artist and life itself.”

Undoubtedly, such positivity is a breath of fresh air in a hip hop climate downtrodden by the woes of depression and drug use.

 

Blac Chyna Debuts Deserve

Blac Chyna is known for a plethora of things and now she’s adding rapper to her resume. Yesterday, Blac Chyna debuted her first single “Deserve.”

Vocal Chyna is certainly no new comer to fame and she called in a favor from a few talented friends for her first single. “Deserve” features Chicago crooner Jeremih and Memphis based lyricist Yo Gotti. While it could easily be said that “Deserve” is Blac Chyna’s own brand of female empowerment, the argument that the song promotes gold digging could easily be posed as well.

Though the intentions of the song may be debatable one thing that is certain is Blac Chyna’s fan based. Her following is undoubtedly great enough to make “Deserve” a hit. The only question is will they do that.

Illi – B4U

It has been just more than a year since Illi debuted his last project “Windy” and he has yet to stop working. Today, Illi kept that same energy and premiered his newest video “B4U.”

“B4U” is a love song the way only The Boy Illinois could create. The upbeat tune inevitably inspires a bop, but the lyrics will make you swoon.

Illi’s costar can be described as nothing other than gorgeous. The chocolate coated beauty compliments him perfectly as the two lay on white sheets.

The visual is simple, yet fun and effective. From scenes of Illi presumably shooting his shot at the coiled haired beauty to performance shots of his signature dance moves “B4U” is perfect.

APOLLOSOGODLY & Chanelle Tru Star in Undergrad

It appears as though APOLLOSOGODLY has an anthem with his latest “Undergrad.”

APOLLOSOGODLY linked up with fellow Chicagoan Chanelle Tru for “Undergrad” and to call it catchy is an understatement.Relatable to any guy who has ever had a crush and any girl who ever had to boss up, “Undergrad” couldn’t have come at a better time.

A Chicago effort through and through and for a good cause the visual is almost as much fun as the song. Directed by Shei Nicole and filmed by Diamond Visuals, everyone is the video is dressed in pink for breast cancer awareness. The video also features one of Chicago’s most notable names, faces and voices ShaneikaSpeaks.

Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs & The Alchemist – Fetti

Last year Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs and The Alchemist assured fans that their joint album would be complete. Though up until September when Curren$y took to social media to encourage Freddie Gibbs to complete his lyrics, the album seemed like an empty promise. Fast forward to today and fans are rejoicing as Fetti has finally made it’s debut.

Fetti, an nine track effort is the sole effort of three of hip hop’s most notable. The Alchemist laid the groundwork for each of the nine tracks, arguably delivering some of his best work. The living legend makes it clear his relevance is nonnegotiable.

Freddie Gibbs represented Gary Indiana in a way the world hasn’t seen since Micheal Jackson. Punchlines delivered in through a barrage of different flows serve as reiteration that Freddie Gibbs has earned his spot in hip hop.

With one of the most identifiable voices in hip hop, Curren$y was everything fans would expect. The New Orleans native took off. Sounding like real life royalty of The Alchemist’s beat, Curren$y delivered quotable lyrics via laid back flows in the way only he could.

Disappointingly short, Fetti is just more than 20 minutes long. But in that short time the trio reminds the world that versatility of hip hop is never to questioned.
