Do you want to know how to become the next big rap star of your city? Do you want to be the next big thing? Maybe you think you are already… No matter what you may think, if you want the top spot we would suggest watching the foot steps of Lil Bibby, because he in moving fast in that direction. Even though the name might be lil but these foot steps are huge and will no longer be ignored.
First thing on your to-do-list is survive the mean streets of Chi-town. Or what is now being referred to as Chi-Raq, a reference to the highly dangerous country of Iraq. If you havent heard, Chicago is pretty back when it come to violence and stuff so if you can survive then you should have a lot to rap about. Just like this 19 year old Lil Bibby does. Now even though he is only 19 you will hear the spirit of a man beyond that age, but we guess that’s what surviving will do to you.
Second thing to do is practice. Yes we are talking about practice! Because these type of skill don’t just develop over night, we are talking lyrical skills that rivals and maybe even surpasses your favorite rappers. Also make sure your skills allow you to rap over any type of beat as Lil Bibby’s mixtape “Free Crack” showcases. “Free Crack“ has an array of Kanye-like soul samples, down south gangster bass lines and jazzy saxophones which Lil Bibby rhymes through with ease.
Last but definitely not least create a mixtape worthy enough to be an album, title it “Free Crack”, and then just give it away. You think you got what it takes? Many think they do, but few succeed. Lil Bibby is beyond hot and if he’s not…you tell us who is! Listen to a couple of tarcks, then download, and comment.
Kat Dahlia is her name and she is from another planet. No, but seriously this Miami native has been cut from a new type of cloth. For someone who started at such a young age this 21 year old has the potential to blaze a trail with her talent that we have never seen before. She is hip hop, she is r&b, she is pop, she is jazz and she can not be put into a box. What she has created from her life experiences should be described as a magical spoken illustration to music. Sounds corny now but once you hear it you will understand. The emotion & passion she puts in these songs are real.
The tracks that we have uncovered paint a picture of a talented, tough, rough around the edges, but delicate artist. Her sound is raw and refreshing. She displays emotions of sadness, happiness, and personal growth. There is so much greatness in her talent it’s not even fair. Its almost like a mix between Jay Z and the late Amy Winehouse with this gritty and grimy accent like Pitt Bull and finesse of, yes, Rihanna you can’t deny it… A very unique combination that sounds phenomenal.
Kat has been recently signed and it‘s looking very promising with a heavy radio rotation of her increasingly popular track Gangsta. This track is CRACK!!! And we think the track is an accurate showcase of her talents. So check her out and let us know what you think. Check the tracks & post back.

If you slept on our post back in October then of course you don’t know about this #AcidRap. The mixtape from the one and only, Chance the Rapper, which dropped back in April has to be one of the most perfect body of work for the young rapper. Every track he owns, exhibiting his very distinct style of which has vastly improved. Chance the Rappers’ Acid Rap will be one of the top mixtapes of the year! With features from Twista, Childish Gambino, and Kids These Days and some of the most abstract production, makes Acid Rap a masterpiece. Chance the Rapper shows that his #10days from school turned out to be a blessing from the All Mighty. Floored in amazement with the progression of his ever improving style and flow, we see Chance riding the wave of Acid Rap straight to stardom.
The long awaited album from ASAP Rocky has finally hit the streets and it has hit with plenty of hype and a little controversy. From ASAP’s comment about Lil Wayne‘s choice of clothing to Rihanna‘s choice of recreational hobbies and whether the media tries to spin it to be negative or not, one thing is clear the album is positively a hit! ASAP has lived up to the hype, even with the overload of features which in most cases can be a red flag for disaster, ASAP has proven us wrong. With Drake, Skrillex, 2 Chainz, Santigold, Kendrick Lamar (twice people! he put Kendrick on the album TWICE!!!) and many more ASAP Rocky lets you know who’s album this is. Literally ASAP Rocky rips every track on this album and deserves yo money for this one. With that being said we believe Rocky WILL live long in this game and YES the album is dope! But if you’re still on the fence even after reading this post then waste your time and read another blog to see what they say… Naw f*ck dat just go buy the album cause we said so! If you think it sucks we’ll give you yo money back… Lol!
We have been looking forward to this day and Wiz didn’t let us down. After 12 mixtapes and 3 studio albums, Wiz Khalifa has had us rockin’ since 2005 starting with the Prince of the City: Welcome to Pistolvania. Now with his highly anticipated, 4th studio album, Wiz Khalifa brings you O.N.I.F.C. And let us tell you this will be a classic. We talkin’ Lil Wayne, Carter IV status! This album is beyond anyones expectations so PLEASE DO NOT be surprised if Wiz sales over 1 million copies. And with 17 tracks, 3 bonus tracks and 2 videos Wiz deserves to sale over a mil. The number of tracks ain’t even close to the best part, it’s the perfection he puts in every line he spits on every track that makes this album so special. After listening to O.N.I.F.C we are happy for Wiz Khalifa and even more excited to see how well this album will do! O.N.I.F.C drops Dec 4th and either you’ll be a part of history and cop it or you won’t…It’s that simple.
So I was listening to some Curren$y the other day (Priest Andretti of course) and heard this voice that just flat lined the track. Had to find out who it was…The name said King Chip??? Huh, Who? So I found King Chip on the most reputable site known to man…Wikipedia duh. Come to find out King Chip is a name change. Even with that said you still ain’t gone know who this is, if that was the case I wouldn’t be writing about him now. But I know as you read this your like, I know every tight rapper known to man (in your smart guy voice) So you’ve heard of Chip tha Ripper… NO! You HAVE NOT! And lyrically he’s killing most out now.
After finding out he changed his name I realized who he was and found out he has a new mixtape coming… But that aint out yet so we gone talk bout his latest. “Tell Ya Friends” King Chip latest mixtape that dropped earlier this year and will give you a good idea why we say he killing most out now. This mixtape has great production from names like Hi-Tek & Chuck Inglish that put King Chip in the spotlight. Even though there is some dope ass features like Bun B & Krayzie Bone, Chip still shows why he is soon to be a star.
So if you knew about him before this post or not, it doesn’t matter. You still need to check the tracks, download the mixtape, listen and enjoy anyways!!! Because we see King Chip aka Chip tha Ripper blow’n up real soon. And if you don’t please let us know where we went wrong… Until next time check the tracks and post back.
Light Skinned Hoes
Chance the Rapper, you’ve never heard of him, but if you have I am surprised. Not because you shouldn’t know who he is, but because when something is new and different the mass tend to over look it… We specialize in the new and different, so it was easy for us to see. We noticed The Rapper and his clique in the middle of the year and his mixtape 10 days had just dropped. Not only was the mixtape super dope but the story behind the mixtape was almost better. Apparently Chance was suspended for 10 days and named the mixtape after this suspension. Now thats a grind right there!!!
10 days mixtape is a collection of songs that shows off Chance’s lyrical ability, it’s a great platform for his showcase. With production from Chuck Inglish and Blended Babies it has a perfect blend of the new school with an ol’ school sound. None of the tracks over power Chance or keep his lyrics from being on display. Chance the Rapper makes it known that he is the real deal, because every song gives you a window to look through and see what he feels. If you listen this mixtape will help you appreciate the hip hop life because this kid is the poster child right now…
We feel Chance is headed to the top, maybe not instantly or overnight but we wouldn’t be surprised. You will hear more about this kid so take this and share with the world! And with Chance the Rapper dropping a new mixtape soon I don’t think he will let us down. Now play the track (of course you’ll like’m) then go download the 10 Days mixtape and COMMENT homie COMMENT!!!
Fuck You Tahm Bout
