Lyric’s Catch A Girl

Over the weekend singer Lyric debuted the visual for her latest single “Catch A Girl.”

“Catch A Girl” is about how a guy can seem perfect and the moment a girl falls for him, he’s gone with the wind. Produced by D. Brooks Exclusive, “Catch A Girl” unfortunately is a song too many can relate to.

While the lyrics are enough to put any girl in her feelings, the visual makes up for it. Lyric entertains three dates in the same arcade without remorse for any of it.

Ann Marie is Down to Ride

Preparing for tour obviously means going into overdrive for Chicago based songstress Ann Marie. In anticipation of her upcoming tour, the singer debuted her latest visual “Ride For Me.”

The fourth track on Ann Marie’s Tripolar 2, “Ride For Me” is a ballad that everyone can relate to. In just under three and a half minutes, Ann Marie explains that she’s in search of loyalty.

A joint effort with Columbia Records recording artist Yung Bleu, “Ride For Me” could easily be described as a duet. Ann Marie and Yung Bleu compliment each other well.

While Ann Marie and Yung Bleu’s voices compliment each other well their chemistry in the video is undeniable. A hood love story to say the very least, “Ride For Me” is the ultimate tale of love and loyalty.

Chimeka is Above P.A.R.

It’s inevitable that when Chimeka speaks the city listens. An artist whose name has grown to be synonymous with hip hop in Chicago, Chimeka has undoubtedly earned her stripes. While she has earned her stripes there are quite a few artist who haven’t and she addresses them on her latest single “Above P.A.R.”

Spawning from her December release Crazy, “Above P.A.R.” is a no bars held address directed at all the rappers who are all rap and no heart. P.A.R. is an acronym for Poor Ass Rappers. A reminder of exactly why when Chimeka speaks the world should listen, “Above P.A.R.” is Chimeka at her lyrical best.

The attack on rappers who don’t live up to their hype or the hype they think they deserve certainly shouldn’t be a surprise coming from Chimeka. The outspoken entertainer has personality for days and the talent to back up any claims she makes. The “Above P.A.R.” video directed by Lakeshorehy is evident of both.

The “Above P.A.R.” visual debuted on March 7 at Don’t Do Coke’s Pizza And A Movie 2 event. The visual, while simple, exemplifies exactly why fans love Chimeka. The entertainer’s personality takes the forefront in the dominating performance scenes. Undoubtedly amusing, the video doesn’t overshadow the song and every shot fired was landed and fatal for substandard rappers.

The Messiah has Passion

There is much to be said about someone who pursues their passion no matter where it takes them. Which means there is much to said about The Messiah. Passion is something he knows quite a bit about and today he released the visual for his single bearing the same name.

The introduction for The Messiah’s latest mixtape Mo Mo, “Passion” is an ode to his career. Rapping since he was 12, The Messiah made a career choice and an early age. “Passion” reiterates the difference between the Messiah and many other rappers.

The Messiah proclaims his love and dedication to music with “Passion,” as well as his disapproval for entertainers who make music for the fame. It’s easy to understand why The Messiah would be offended by rappers who don’t take the craft seriously. “I’m damn near living my dream,” admits the rapper.

More than a decade, hundreds of songs, and millions of streams later The Messiah is still passionate about his craft.

Catching Up with Illi

Easily one of the hardest working men in show business, Illi has been a very busy entertainer. Earlier this month he released his 7750 EP and yesterday debuted his “Footwork” visual.

Anyone who is familiar with Illi knows he doesn’t do anything unintentionally and the release 7750 is undoubtedly no exception. Named for his grandparents address, where he spent a large portion of his childhood, 7750 is a dedication to his grandfather.

The five track effort was produce in its entirety by RelElite Socool and it is everything about Illi fans know and love. Educational, entertaining and fun, Illi successfully connects what makes him a man to what makes him a superstar with 7750.

Yesterday, Illi blessed the world with more creative genius via his “Footwork” visual. The last video from his 2017 release Windy, “Footwork” is simple but perfect. The HearonTrackz foundation seemed to be made complete by Illi’s unparalleled storytelling until Djedi added some footwork of his own.

Don Parious – I’m Just Saying

In anticipation of the release of his debut album Mari Had A Little Lamb, on Valentine’s Day Don Parious premiered his first single, “I’m Just Saying.”

Choosing a lead single for an artist’s first album can be stressful, but it seems as though Don Parious has the formula. “I’m Just Saying” an adequate representation of the rapper’s “lyrical and soulful sound,” it has a catchy hook, and it’s easy to listen to. What more could fans ask for?

Fans could ask for a dope visual to accompany such a single, but Don Parious has that covered as well. The “I’m Just Saying” visual also debuted Thursday. Co-starring the gorgeous Allegra Dayo as Don Parious ‘s companion, “I’m Just Saying” chronicles the couple exploring Chicago while sharing their lives.

While Mari Had A Little Lamb isn’t expected until late March, hopefully “I’m Just Saying” will be enough to hold fans over for a while.

Ann Marie – Around

Chicago based singer/songwriter Ann Marie has been on a roll. The January release of her Tripolar 2 EP has been making waves and her new single “Around” is following suit.

“Around” is the sultry tale of a necessarily secret romance between two people who both have significant others. Ann Marie’s vocals are ideal however the song would be incomplete without 147 Calboy. Calboy shows the world a softer side, leaving fans with nothing to want for.

The “Around” visual is simple, but gives a foundation for the song.
