Nearly three years after its predecessor and a week later than expected SUNNYWOODZROLLUP has finally arrived.
The last two weeks are evident that Sunny Woodz is the hardest working man in Chicago. On November 19, the engineer, songwriter, and creative genius hosted a private kickback that doubled as the listening party for SUNNYWOODZROLLUP. The mixtape was scheduled to to make its debut the following Friday, November 23, just in time for Sunny Woodz to headline his first concert. Instead, he went back to the studio and the result is debatably perfection.
At just less than 28 minutes, SUNNYWOODZROLLUP is 12 tracks of greatness. The mixtape is a guide to the dopest artists throughout the Chicagoland area brought together the way only Sunny Woodz could. SUNNYWOODZROLLUP opens with Solo The Dweeb, who sets the vibe for the tape. From there artists from all over the city remind fans as to why they remain patient with Sunny Woodz and his missed deadlines. Bandland Zz, Chimeka, Slitta, and Messiah are just a few of the artists who contributed their talents t9 this effort. SUNNYWOODZROLLUP then closes with a feature from YP.
The easiest way to describe SUNNYWOODZROLLUP is to call it a vibe. The mixtape is creative culmination of the versatility of Chicago based artists conveniently packaged for the listening pleasure of fans.
Last night, Sunny Woodz made history when he shut down Cairo Ale House headlining his very first showcase.
It is an undisputed fact that no one can bring artists together like Sunny Woodz. Last night, he reminded Chicago of that connecting artists and fans alike at his well-planned and flawlessly executed showcase.
“Twista Presents Black Friday with Sunny Woodz and Friends” was a movie. Divided into three sets, complete with different vibes, the show case had something for everyone. ShaneikaSpeaks hosted the first segment, which was hosted by DJ MightDoSumn. Messiah, FlossMobChase and Murph Watkins were among the performers creating the energy that got things in motion. The second set was a trip around the city piloted by Yo Carlie, with DJ TRell providing the sounds. Jae Haze, Weasel Sims, and Clark Airlines were just of the few of the artists along for the ride. The final set of the show was both hosted and dj’d but Sunny Woodz himself. The anti-socialite saved the best for last, as his line up included Illi, Stunt Taylor, and Lucci Vee.
Sunny Woodz literally shut down Cairo Ale House, with performances up until the very moment they closed. He closed the show performing alongside one of his favorites, Chimeka.
Chicago couldn’t have asked for a better show. Sunny Woodz blurred the lines between artists and fans, allowing those who are all too often on stage a chance to be a part of the audience and cheer on a few of their favorite hometown acts.
Sunny Woodz is no stranger to hard work. Fortunately for his fans that hard work always results in a vibe and this time is no different. This morning Sunny Woodz debuted his latest single “Vibes.”
One might think that preparation for one of the cities most anticipated showcases would keep anyone busy. While that may be true it isn’t keeping Sunny Woodz too busy to put out music to be the soundtracks of his fans lives his newest single “Vibes” brings some of Chicago’s most notable rappers together the way only Sunny Woodz can.
Wheatie, Twista, and GLC are one hell of a trio. Their individual flows come together, seamlessly to create the ultimate vibes. The new comer opens the song with a subtle energy drawing fans in. Followed by the living legend who switches flows mid verse. The Hometown Hero brings home with witty lyrics the way only he could.
Perfect for a kickback or a car ride, “Vibes” definitely belongs on repeat.
Money is a necessity in this day and age and BoDi Deeder knows that well. His latest single “Trap Money Crack Money” is evidence and the visual is in line with that.
Simple in concept but heavy on effects, the “Trap Money Crack Money” video is a Clark FX original. Expensive cars, pretty women and close friends is “Trap Money Crack Money” in a nutshell. But it’s a BoDi Deeder visual so it’s certainly not that simple.
Hemi engines and strippers and a few of Chicago’s most notable artists is more like it. BoDi Deeder delivers lyrics about getting money in whatever your preferred method is, because quite frankly either you have it or you don’t. His entourage includes living legend Twista and Chicago Clout God Sunny Woodz, as well as a few of BoDi Deeder’s day ones Chase Chill and Stax Dollars.
Produced by Fatality of 80 Apes, “Trap Money Crack Money is the first single from BoDi Deeder’s upcoming EP Trap Fever.
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.
After much anticipation and a private live experience, Chimeka delivered the first EP of a three part saga entitled Cool.
Just shy of 20 minutes long, Cool highlights the more laidback side of the Harvey native. A compilation of easy going track coving a range of topics from love and relationships to being a stoner, Cool undoubted proof that Chimeka is starting the year on the right foot.
Despite the self-proclaimed unicorn’s multiple talents, Cool still features the talents of some other well known Chicagoans. The Boy Illinois joins the beauty for a trip down memory lane on the song “90’s Love.” “Elevator Music” is a stoner anthem and joint effort between Chimeka and quite possibly the highest guy in Chicago, Sunny Woodz. Novacane and YF Beats were also sound those who lent production to the EP.
As Chimeka fans rejoice, new fans are certainly in the making behind the release of Cool. The anticipation for the rest of the trilogy has just gone through the roof.
