We here at iHipHop believe in providing hip-hop heads the meat and potatoes of the rap game. That’s why we aren’t playing by cosigning Chicago’s SD, whose debut album Truly Blessed, will be out in stores November 18th (you can pre-order the album via iTunes here). Peep the first cut “Circles” from the album after the jump.
Ever wonder what Chief Keef would sound like rap-singing over some SNES-style beats? Well, you don’t have to lose any sleep as he does just that on his new track “Now & Later”. Joining Keef on the track is West Coast’s Tyga who delivers some nasty porno raps over the video game beat provided by Da Brain. The track is set to appear on Sosa’s Thot Breaker due out Valentine’s Day 2015. Listen after the jump.
Seeing how we shared a Chance the Rapper featured track earlier today in Lil Herb’s “Fight or Flight” remix it’s only fitting that we unveil a new solo effort from the Chicago wunderkind. “No Better Blues” is a collaborative effort with The Social Experiment. Listen and vibe out to new Chance after the jump.
Chi-Town what up?! Three of the finest rappers out of the Windy City join forces on one solid track. Lil Herb’s Welcome to Fazoland gets a facelift with Common and Chance the Rapper jumping on the remix. Peep the visuals after the jump.
The Chiraq rapper-producer tandem of Chief Keef and Young Chop reunite for “Valley” off of Chop’s forthcoming album Still. Still will be due out October 28th via iTunes (which is currently up for preorder, if you’re ever so inclined) and you may listen to “Valley” after the jump.
Dej Loaf’s hit song “Try Me” has already been remixed by the likes of Wiz Khalifa and now Chiraq’s Lil Durk is jumping on the stellar DDS produced track. Lil Durk doesn’t do much as far as switching up his flow, instead mimicking Def Loaf’s slow and steady approach. This actually works in Durk’s advantage as the sedated flow allows the OTF spitter’s to come off loud and clear. Listen after the jump.
Fredo Santana isn’t one to mince words, which is precisely why it’s quite simple here: fu*k the other side. Don’t get it confused, Fredo says. And with a song title and message like that, how could you possibly get it twisted? The message was sent as soon as you read the title. Watch the video to Fredo Santana’s “Fu*k the Other Side” after the jump.
After hitting it big with ScHoolboy Q’s stellar Oxymoron cut “Studio” earlier this year, BJ the Chicago Kid has been putting out heat and his new track “Soul of a Woman” is definitely a third degree burn. Truly flames from the Chicago Kid. Listen after the jump.
Last night (Sept. 21st) Common held his inaugural AAHH! Fest in his hometown Chicago, which featured performances by De La Soul, Lupe Fiasco, and Jennifer Hudson. During Common’s set, however, he brought out a “very special guest”. Kanye West eventually surprised the crowd, performing The College Dropout cut “Get Em High” with Common as well as songs like “Jesus Walks”, “Can’t Tell Me Nothing”, “Power”, “All of the Lights”, and more. Videos after the jump!
“Still screaming ‘Fu*k rehab’ right now!” proclaims a drowsy, nasally Chief Keef on his new track “In It”. And you believe him. Whether or not this track will appear on the much delayed, endlessly pushed back Bang 3 album is as good as anyone’s guess. But all we know from the recent tracks he’s shared is Keef is sounding as menacing and uncompromising as he did when we first heard him on Back from the Dead. Peep the track after the jump!
“I’m savage, my teacher always told me I ain’t average/ She said Lil Durk he’ll shoot I remind them of the Mavericks” Lil Durk professed on the first installment of his “52 Barz” series back in 2012. Now fast forward to 2014 where Durk brings to mind those aforementioned lyrics, snapping all over his new track “My Money”, dropping many notable, street wise lines and delivering a catchy hook, to boot. Oh, and the Migos are on the track, as well. Listen after the jump.
Los Angeles rapper Kid Ink has teamed up with Chiraq’s very own Lil Bibby for a new track entitled “All I Need” off the fresh new Batgang: 4B’s project. It goes without saying that the gruff-voiced Bibby slays the track with a pair of verses as Kid Ink provides the chorus as a solid backdrop for the song. Peep it after the jump.
