Sunny Woodz is Headed to Paradise

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.

Phor’s Chi Town Remix

Phor made waves as a tattoo artist at Chicago’s famed 9 Mag Tattoo on the ever popular Black Ink Crew Chicago tv show. Utilizing his platform to take his music to the next level, over the summer Phor released “Chi Town.” Today, the city was abuzz as Phor continued to show Chicago well deserved love by premiering the remix to the summer smash.

Making it’s debut today during DJ Pharris’s 5pm mix, “Chi Town” Remix is an ode to the Windy City unlike any other. Phor recruited Lil Durk, Bump J and Twista for an all star line up representative of the city he calls home.

Sunny Woodz Invites Fans to a Kickback

Finally, it’s autumn and that means pool parties have been traded for bond fires and kickbacks. Though summertime soirées have given way to more indoor shindigs one thing remains necessary and that’s a soundtrack. Leave it to Sunny Woodz to be the mastermind behind the new kickback anthem.

Sunny Woodz recruited Clark Airlines, Ohana Bam and Twista, for a laidback sound sure to fill the negative space of any get together. The track has a kind of slow burn befitting of Hennessy and Backwoods. Zen Zan holds the production credit for this song.

Twista Gets Disrespectful

Last month Twista made history when he dropped his 10th studio album Crook County. Yesterday, the Chicagoan reminded the world why he’s still pertinent after 20 plus years in the industry with his new single “Disrespectful.”

The stuff nightmares are made of, “Disrespectful,” is Twista’s very own three minute horror movie. The lyrical legend wields a machete and impersonates Jason Voorhees and that’s only the first verse. Twista puts a dead up and coming Chicago rapper, Kevin Kelly, in a grocery cart and tortures model Abigail Solis.

Dead and bloodied rappers and models seems like an awful image for a video, but the always a rhyme and reason when it comes to rappers. The dark images are befitting of the gory lyrics and horror movie references in the song.

Watch Disrespectful.

Hip Hop Celebrates Cinco de Money 3

Hip hip fans in Chicago celebrated Cinco de Mayo in a rather unique way. Rapper Ty Money debuted the third installment of his Cinco de Money series. 

The 12 track effort is homegrown, but establishes Ty Money as a global artist. Not only is Cinco de Money 3 lyrically impressive, the 29 year old suburbanite recruited a team of some of Chicago’s most noteable producers to create a sound that undeniably defines the Harvey native. Hearon Trackz, NovaCane and Chase Davis all lent production to one track each on Cinco de Money 3. Ty Money teamed up with RioMac to get under the Future/Metro Boomin’ act, the producer has four credits on the mixtape.

The lyricism on Cinco de Mayo 3 was certainly a Chicago affair, as well. “Yes or No” features Chicago legend Bump J who is newly released from prison. Another feature comes from Chimeka also known as ChinChillaMeek. Though not exactly a feature Twista appears on the mixtape as well. An interlude in which the hip hop legend compares Ty Money to Slick Rick is used as an interlude.

Twista Makes 4/20 a Happy Day

Happy days are here or at least that’s what it looks like, since the entire stoner community is probably giggling to themselves by now in celebration of 4/20. And what better way to celebrate 4/20 than with brand new music from hip hop legend Twista.

The Chicago native debuted his new video “Happy Days,” which features up and comer Supa Bwe. Probably the most beffiting song for the day, the lyrics are an accurate statement for pot smokers everywhere, “I’ve been smoking dope for days.” 

A fun, light-heart video filled with fast cars and weed smoke, there’s even an appearance from Migos and Sunny Woodz.
