This week kicked off the first days of Summertime Chicago in 2017. So if your reading this on your laptop, work computer (watch out for your snitching ass co-workers who probably are over your shoulder right now) or mobile device, you’re looking for that fuego to bump as soon as you hit the open road, or traffic (mostly likely traffic, let’s keep it one hundred). Well you stopped in the right spot as I present to you that hot shit you are searching for.
Neak – The Neak Experience (Live)
Here’s one thing you should know about Neak, that’s there no one thing that best describes him, his talent is to be admired but its his drive to not settle for being your favorite rapper and instead become something greater. His live shows are phenomenal and I highly suggest you attend one if you have not done so already. But in the mean time, you can enjoy the live offering from Neak, the Neak Experience here in its greatest form and don’t forget to thank me later.
Pinqy Ring – Phoenix (Official Video)
Pinqy Ring is getting ready for her big performance at this year’s Taste of Chicago, but she’s also rising from the ashes on her latest single and video, Phoenix. I can’t recall if I previous heard Pinqy going hard in the paint as much as she is on Phoenix, but she’s swinging for the fences and battling her demons on the trappy head nodding production. I rock with it, you should too.
GLC – Sankofa with Kwesi
GLC takes a step back from the ISM (well there’s still ISM on anything he does, but he relaxes it here) to drop a dedication record to his brother, Richard Harris, who was affectionally called Baba “Kwesi and passed almost a year ago to the week from his battle with cancer. “Man I swear my brother was a great guy..” GLC raps, the production carries a wonderful trumpet sample that matches GLC’s soulful outpouring honesty. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Harris family, and we salute GLC on this effort.
