Chicago’s best young talent teams up on Chief Keef’s “Faneto” remix. DJ Pharris brings together Sosa, Lil Bibby, Lil Herb and King Louie for the seven minute “Faneto” remix. Who do ya’ll think had the best verse overall? Check it out after the jump.
In case you haven’t heard, 2015 kicked off with the return of Harlem’s beloved Dipset. The group dropped a stellar cut in “Have My Money” and followed that up with their “Victory” freestyle, which is equally dope. Their return has sparked some nostalgia and that’s all gravy because we here at iHipHop often find ourselves reminiscing about simpler times. Chief Keef, who was probably no more than eight years old when Dipset dropped their iconic Diplomatic Immunity record, is nevertheless paying tribute to the supergroup. Keef has dropped a track entitled “Dipset.” The tribute to Cam and company is set to appear on Keef’s upcoming DJ Holiday-hosted Dedication mixtape. Check it out after the jump!
Lil Durk and Chief Keef were cool. Then they were beefing. And now it looks like things are cool again. That’s a good thing, I suppose. The two have teamed up for “Decline” which is also produced by Chiraq drill impresario Young Chop. Listen to “Decline” after the jump.
There’s never a shortage of Chief Keef music and with “Voodoo” he adds another one to his ever-growing catalog of work. On “Voodoo” Sosa teams up with producer KC Da Beatmonster where he raps without ever catching his breath. It’s strange, which by now is commonplace for Keef, and definitely worth a listen. Listen to “Voodoo” after the jump.
Chief Keef links up with his older cousin and fellow Chicagoan Fredo Santana for a new collaborative track. It’s been a hot minute since these two were on a track together but they’re back with “Bodies on the Ground” a HurtboyAG production. Listen after the jump.
After roughly a year of teasing, Chief Keef finally shares the long-gestating collaboration with Kanye West. “Nobody” arrives in time for the release of Keef’s forthcoming Nobody release, which is due out tomorrow (Dec. 16th.) “Nobody” marks the second time Chief Keef and Kanye West have collaborated, the first being on the Yeezus cut “Hold My Liquor.” Listen to “Nobody” after the jump.
After the recent confrontation involving Migos and GBE member Capo, Fredo Santana has shared a track bluntly entitled “Go to War” featuring another fellow GBE/300 Chicago rapper Lil Reese. Fredo also had some words for Migos via Twitter, writing “@MigosATL I’m in LA but stop playing wit capo on bd for I get y’all whole camped killed facts my word is LAW so don’t test” Listen to “Go to War” after the jump.
Chief Keef’s new mixtape Back From the Dead 2 appropriately arrives on Halloween and the 19-year-old handles the heft of the production (producing exactly 16 of the 20 tracks) on the mixtape. In addition to producing a majority of the tracks, Sosa doesn’t recruit many for features instead opting to do most of the work himself (Gucci Mane and Tadoe both appear on a track each). If you wanted that old Sosa then you should probably just stick to listening to everything preceding Finally Rich because Back From the Dead 2 may perhaps be his most experimental/left field effort yet. Stream and download Back From the Dead 2 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.
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.
Chief Keef is prepping the release of the highly anticipated follow-up to his 2012 Back From the Dead mixtape which is due out October 31st. And Sosa is now dropping the visuals for “Wayne” which you may watch after the jump.
Chief Keef continues his streak of leaks with “Wayne”. However, this time Keef brings an official release date. That’s right, some new Chief Keef material. While the streets anxiously await the release of his Bang 3 album he’s going to be dropping the sequel to his mainstream breakout mixtape Back From the Dead. That’s the cover art above. Listen to “Wayne” after the jump!
When Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” music video went viral over the summer many detractors took aim at the striking similarities between the Brooklyn rapper’s aesthetic (both in sound and visuals) and the burgeoning Chicago drill scene. However, the negativity quickly died down, especially when nobody from Chicago’s scene seemed to take issue with it. Now, Chief Keef and Fredo Santana drop “Beetle Juice”, a track with a questionable lyric that appears to take a jab at Shmurda. “You know you ain’t catch no body bout a week ago,” raps Keef, which is a lyric directly lifted from Bobby Shmurda’s “Hot N***a” in which Shmurda mentions his pal Mitch catching a body. You decided for yourself if that is a diss, after the jump.
Fredo Santana’s been keeping awfully quiet lately. But his new track “How You Want It” loudly breaks the silence. Produced by Hurtboy AG, “How You Want It” finds Fredo in his classic form: trappin’, trappin’, trappin’. Check out the track after the jump.
