Illi – B4U

It has been just more than a year since Illi debuted his last project “Windy” and he has yet to stop working. Today, Illi kept that same energy and premiered his newest video “B4U.”

“B4U” is a love song the way only The Boy Illinois could create. The upbeat tune inevitably inspires a bop, but the lyrics will make you swoon.

Illi’s costar can be described as nothing other than gorgeous. The chocolate coated beauty compliments him perfectly as the two lay on white sheets.

The visual is simple, yet fun and effective. From scenes of Illi presumably shooting his shot at the coiled haired beauty to performance shots of his signature dance moves “B4U” is perfect.

APOLLOSOGODLY & Chanelle Tru Star in Undergrad

It appears as though APOLLOSOGODLY has an anthem with his latest “Undergrad.”

APOLLOSOGODLY linked up with fellow Chicagoan Chanelle Tru for “Undergrad” and to call it catchy is an understatement.Relatable to any guy who has ever had a crush and any girl who ever had to boss up, “Undergrad” couldn’t have come at a better time.

A Chicago effort through and through and for a good cause the visual is almost as much fun as the song. Directed by Shei Nicole and filmed by Diamond Visuals, everyone is the video is dressed in pink for breast cancer awareness. The video also features one of Chicago’s most notable names, faces and voices ShaneikaSpeaks.

Meet Ceez

When lyricism meets intellect, the possibilities are endless, just ask Ceez. The collegiate athlete turned rapper is sharing his talent with the world and reaping the benefits of it.

Previously know for his skills on the basketball court, after debuting his first two visuals “Smoke” and “Preach,” Ceez is gaining recognition for his skills in the both. The Indianapolis based rapper started sprouting musical roots when he was eleven, but it wasn’t until the summer of 2018 that really began taking his talent seriously.

With a determination to stay true to his lyrics, Ceez delivers a level a positivity that’s often absent form hip hop. Ceez’s music is a breath of fresh air in a hip hop climate inundated with gimmicks and hood tales that the artists have never lived.

Real rap is an accurate description of Ceez’s style. Molded by the gangster rappers of the 90s and inspired by the lyrical artists of this era, Ceez brings a sound that’s original and true.

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.

Keenan Davis is Hella Heavy

Some rappers claim to be the king of the city they live in for clout, not Keenan Davis. The Chicagoan reiterated that isn’t the king of the Windy City on his new single “Hella Heavy”, but it is hard to believe he isn’t on his way.

No fancy cars or pretty women, “Hella Heavy” is all about Keenan Davis. The lyricist appears on a bike, in an empty parking lot and in front of a corner store in his latest visual. It’s black and white which adds a dramatic effect, but factually it’s unnecessary. The music speaks for itself.

The 27 year-old artist did not come to play. His lyrical growth and versatility of flow took center stage on “Hella Heavy”, so much so that the visual wasn’t necessary. Undoubtedly, artistry is alive and well in Chicago and Keenan Davis is walking, rapping proof.

BoDi Deeder Has Trap Money Crack Money

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.

Hunnid is on Lake Shore Drive

Probably the most versatile city in the world, Chicago can be the coldest place on earth or paradise. Hunnid captures that unforgivingly in his latest visual “Lake Shore Drive.”

Lake Shore Drive is undisputedly the most recognizable stretch of roadway in the city for all that it has to offer. From the Southside to the Northside, iconic views of the skyline and beaches that are world famous still serve as crime scenes in the eyes of many citizens. Hunnid captures that sentiment the way only he can. “Somewhere between Bump J, Common, and Chief Keef” is how Hunnid described himself on “Lake Shore Drive,” but also a very accurate depiction of what the city has to offer.

Hunnid’s remix to BlocBoy JB and Drake’s hit “Look Alive,” “Lake Shore Drive” combines lyrics depicting the harsh reality of being from a Chicago hood with breathtaking views of downtown.
