Slitta Spreads His Wings with Broken Halo

Slitta gave artists 6 weeks of 2020 to put their projects out, before he stopped playing fair. Now, it’s too late. Slitta’s latest Broken Halo has arrived.

Broken Halo is 13 tracks hand chosen by Slitta himself to remind fans that despite the fact that loyalty is currently missing from the culture, it is still very much a necessity. Slitta wastes absolutely no time establishing the theme, Broken Halo opens with the AllDay produced bop “We Bout” featuring 057 Bully.

As Broken Halo progresses, Slitta narrates tales of love and loyalty in creative ways, the way only he could. “Been There” is a product of Slitta in its totality and its motivation at its finest. “Shooters” is an ode to the hitters and “La Familia” is about exactly what the title says.

Slitta put his own talents on front street, rapping, singing, and producing a number of the tracks on Broken Halo. Though he enlisted the help of 057 Bully and a number of producer, Slitta in his own words, “ain’t compromising shit.” The D1CMG powerhouse served as the executive producer for Broken Halo, ensuring fans would see his vision as he prepares for his next release, Trap Angel.

YDot GDot – No Promoters Freestyle

YDot GDot is more than an entertainer. Among the many hats he wears, including the infamous orange hat, he’s a businessman and his “No Promoters” freestyle serves as a quick reminder.

In the age of social media it’s easy to assume if it wasn’t posted it didn’t happen. YDot GDot took a few moments out of his busy schedule to let the world know he’s made good money and good investments and he only does business with real bosses on “No Promoters.”

“No Promoters” is short and sweet, lasting less than a minute. Apparently 52 seconds was all Chicago’s favorite needed to get his point across.

YDot GDot – Why They Mad

Resilience is defined as the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. YDot GDot started 2020 by earning the right to be called resilient. After the very unexpected passing of his best friend, AD, YDot is working double time and doing everything in AD’s memory; including releasing his new visual “Why They Mad.”

YDot GDot has been Chicago’s Favorite Nerd for years. As an entertainer, entrepreneur, and philanthropist YDot has undeniably made a name for himself. Despite all of his positive initiatives there are always haters, however YDot puts the world on notice that he’s aware and he knows why.

“Why They Mad” is an anthem for everyone who’s on their A-game and knows it. It has been said that you’ll never been ridiculed by someone doing more than you. With that in mind, YDot GDot is likely to have haters forever. As one of the hardest working men in Chicago, it will remain taskful to find anyone doing more than YDot and that must be why they mad.

New Ara Pours a Lil

It was no secret that super creative New Ara has every intention to start 2020 with his foot on the gas. After wrapping up one hell of a 2019 with new music, ad placements, and television appearances, it just makes sense that New Ara would maintain that momentum. He’s done just that starting the year with the debut of his latest single “Pour A Lil.”

“Pour A Lil” is an ode to a failed relationship. A practice often done in memoriam of deceased loved ones, New Ara pours out liquor to signify that any hope there once was for the relationship is lost. Produced by Sunny Woodz and YF BEATZ, “Pour A Lil” is yet another notch on New Agra’s creative belt, as it is sure to be a hit.

The visual was filmed by Shot by Tyler Banks and is out now.
