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’s debut album Remember My Name is set to drop May 12th via Def Jam.

Despite GS9’s Bobby Shmurda and Rowdy Rebel being locked up on various charges that hasn’t stopped the streets from showing their support and love via freestyles/remixes. And while “Hot N***a” has been freestyled/remixed to death Lil Herb goes the other route by freestyling over “Computers” their lesser known single. Check out the visuals 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.
After dropping “Bodies on the Ground” last December Fredo Santana returns to 2015 with “Bricks” an autotune-drenched cut. But if autotune isn’t your thing and you’re not feeling Fredo’s movement then peep the awesome cover art above. That’s Bobby Hill (from King of the Hill) with Fredo Santana’s signature tattoos. I guess that’s the only takeaway from this. Oh well. Peep Fredo Santana’s “Bricks” after the jump. Or just stare at that hilariously rad cover art above. Whatever you want.
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.
Chicago’s Lil Mouse is prepping the release of his forthcoming Mouse Trap 2 mixtape and to promote the release he has teamed up with fellow Chicago rapper Lil Durk for “U Mad.” The two locals have linked up several times in the past so “U Mad” serves as a sort of reunion for the two. Listen to “U Mad” after the jump.
Lil Durk has been dealing with some unfortunate legal issues stemming from a gun charge, but that isn’t stopping the Chicago rapper from dropping some heat this winter. Today he shares “I’m a Star” featuring Coke Boys head honcho French Montana. Listen after the jump.

With SD’s debut full length Truly Blessed on the way (purchase here via iTunes) the rising Chicago rapper delivers the visuals for his “Circles” single. Produced by Omen and AudioBLK, the video for “Circles” perfectly captures the whirlwind and subsequent sense of despair that is SD’s world. The video finds SD rapidly flailing about in the Lord’s house and riding around in a Bentley, contemplating his very existence. SD doesn’t hold back on Truly Blessed, it’s all meat and potatoes for the 20-year-old rapper, as he depicts the harsh realities of his upbringing in the Windy City. Going along with SD’s signature raw melody and grimy raps is production from Sonny Digital, Cash Money AP and more. Watch the video for SD’s “Circles” after the jump.
