Ty Money’s First Day Out

Beach days, music festivals and sunshine are in no short supply and to most people that would mean summer is still in full swing. However for a lot of rappers, summer just came to a screeching halt. Chicago area rapper Ty Money was recently completed a prison sentence and today he premiered his new visual “First Day Out.”

Looking like he hasn’t missed a meal and sounding like he hasn’t missed a beat, Ty Money’s “First Day Out” is exactly what the game has been missing. With the King of Sibley finally free, the sound of the summer is certain about to change.

Produced by RioMac and visual by Toinne Tarantino “First Day Out” is evidence that Ty Money did not come to play.

Chimeka’s Don’t Do Coke

Anyone in Chicago last night, but not at Subterranean, missed one hell of a show. Chimeka headlined the sold out Don’t Do Coke and it was dope.

The Harvey born artist formerly known as Chin Chilla Meek opened her show by establishing that she was changing the culture, and she did indeed. As the headliner or the show she performed first, encouraging fans to always show up on time and praising the acts to come after her.

While changing the culture, Chimeka took fans on a ride they won’t soon forget. With DJ BMan and a live band, the rapper/singer performed recent and past hits. Chimeka proved that real fans withstand rebranding and Chicago has the littest female rappers ever, when Shawnna joined her on stage. The two performed 2011’s “Fucked Up.”

Chimeka performed four of the six tracks from her most recent EP Cool, including her latest single, “Elevator Music,” which she performed twice. In a nod to incarcerated Harvey rapper Ty Money, the multitalented beauty performed 2016’s “Sibley XVI” and referred to him as the King of Sibley.

Who’s who in the City made up the audience of the self proclaimed unicorn’s sold out show. Don’t Do Coke was proof that hip hop is alive and well in Chicago, artist do support each other and Chicago knows how to come together and have a good time.

Hearon Trackz’s Seven 7: Godz

What better way to go into 2018 than with a compilation album produced in its entirety by Chicago native Hearon Trackz? Seven 7: Godz is a culmination of some of Chicago’s most notable artists doing what they do best over groundwork laid by the super producer and frankly it should make Chicagoans proud.

During an era of hip hop in which everything sounds familiar, Seven 7 is what music fans are looking for. The album offers the versatility of more than 20 Chicago based artists and despite every track being the product of Hearon Trackz, no two sound alike.

Chicago hip hop icons and new comers contribute to Seven 7 being an album with something for everyone. Never before heard tracks, previously released music and collaborations that could only come to fruition over Hearon Trackz beats is the only way to sum up Seven 7.

Seven 7 is evidence that the only thing colder than the winter in Chicago is the music. Shawnna, Queen Key and Lucci Vee make it crystal clear than talent shows no gender preference delivering lyricism that undoubtedly rivals their male counterparts. Ty Money, King Louie, Rockir Fresh and a host of others contribute lyricism, while Slitta lends smooth vocals and Chairman Fred Hampton Jr imparts words of wisdom to what will certainly become the soundtrack for the city.

Ty Money & Wheatie-Fire Then Water

Chicago area artists are going harder than ever and Ty Money and Wheatie’s new release “Fire Then Water” is evidence.

“Fire Then Money” is Chicago through and through, from production to the visual, it is all a result of homegrown dexterity. Ty Money and Wheatie take turns displaying their lyrical aptitude over a foundation laid by super producer Hearon Trackz. The visual was the birthed by none other than create genius DGainz.

Just more than three minutes of some of the city’s most notable creativity, “Fire Then Water” proves that not only are Chicagoans talented, they can collaborate successfully. It is safe to say the city’s got another one.

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.
