Chicago Drill is in full-effect.
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!
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.
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.
In the second part of this interview series with Chicago's SD, Rob Markman (MTV, Sway In the Morning) sits down with SD to discuss the rising rap star's status with GBE. The veteran hip-hop journalist also salutes the young rapper for his bold decision to omit features from his new album Truly Blessed in the "features obsessed" era of rap. Watch part one of the interview here and purchase SD's Truly Blessed album from iTunes here. Watch part two of the interview 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.
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.
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!
