Some artists have a way of drawing inspiration from life experience. LLG Siicx is one of those artists.
Chicago native LoeLyfeGang Siicx has been rapping since he was 13. Despite seeing the hardships of those around him, Siicx fostered his talent, understanding that he has something special. Though it wasn’t until recently that Siicx took his own talent.
In the last two years, Siicx has released four music videos, two of which in the last two weeks. He has also been featured on a number of compilation mixtapes. Siicx is now working to complete his debut mixtape slated to be released at some point this summer.
Some people always seem to have the best advice for situations that are none of their concern. Chloé teamed up with Joel Q to put those people in their place for her latest release “Don’t Fix.”
Chicago based singer and songwriter, Chloé takes aim at that one person always keeping tabs on a relationship that isn’t their own with “Don’t Fix.” The lyrics reiterate that what may not work for some works for others and it’s no one’s place to judge, no matter how quirky the relationship seems.
Paired perfectly with Joel Q, even more shots are fired at the lonely nosey souls always soliciting their opinions where they’re unwanted. The rapper specifically calls out the single, gold digger struggling to find a relationship of her own and pretending to be satisfied with her situation.
The visual is perfect for the spring time that Chicago is struggling to see. Colorful and creative, filmed in grassy areas “Don’t Fix” is somewhat reminiscent of Alice in Wonderland. Whimsical and fun, Don’t Fix features parasols, bubbles and a kimono clad Chloé singing in a row boat in the grass.
Some lifestyles are uninterrupted by social distancing, stay at home, or shelter in place orders. Goonew & Lil Dude recruit Keezah to inform the world that the Mafia Lifestyle is one of them.
Maryland rap duo Goonew & Lil Dude are already ascending into rap superstardom and their latest single “Mafia Lifestyle” is only propelling them even further. “Mafia Lifestyle” appears on the pair’s latest project Homicide Boyz 2 and is a fan favorite. Rightfully so, “Mafia Lifestyle” combines gritty lyrics delivered in hushed tones with aggressive production for Spizzle Doe and it is a winning combination.
Goonew & Lil Dude are joined on the track by Keezah. The trio is just enough for mob action and obviously just what fans are looking for.
The visual is quite befitting. It captures images of the rappers delivering lyrics in hallways and on street corners with ominous lighting.

It’s hard to adjust to certain aspects of the world when you’re young, gifted, and black. LOE Addé knows that and shares some of those woes on his latest single “Where I Been At?”.
The Maryland based rapper touched some souls with this one. “Where I Been At?” is LOE Addé’s successful attempt to channel is own hurt and anger in a way the masses can relate.

Without question rap is the modern day rock and roll and artists like Meechie Bravo are the reason. His debut EP RichPrettyGoon is proof.
Meechie Bravo is a 19 year old Bronx native and his story is the perfect tale of opportunity meeting optimism. Meechie Bravo is an event host who went viral after being accused of leaking Megan Thee Stallion’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj. Meechie Bravo already had a following from his other endeavors (comedic content and custom durags), but after capitalizing on the attention gained from appearing on The Shade Room, he hosted his biggest event to date.
Inspired to make music by his father, who was also a rapper, Meechie Bravo embarked on his musical journey in 2017. Though he struggled to find his own unique sound, he has settled into what he describes as strip club music and it seems to be working well for him. Meechie Bravo’s latest video “Freak” gained 32,000 views in a week.
His EP PrettyRichGoon is about 12 minutes of sex, drugs, and money. Meechie Bravo is a far cry from the sounds rappers in New York have typically become famous for. PrettyRichGoon is seven strip club anthems reminiscent of Miami, Atlanta, and Houston.
Meechie Bravo has his sights set high. Acknowledging that he makes music that’s most popular with women, Meechie Bravo hopes to open for Megan Thee Stallion or City Girls someday.

Motivated by the naysayers, Polo Baybee built his career on confidence. It was his own self assurance and a little help from some twerk videos that lead to his last three videos going viral.
Though Polo Baybee is far from a newcomer to the music industry, it appears that his career is just beginning.
