What do you get when Vic Mensa and Chance The Rapper do the Fusion Dance or better yet do a Fusion Rap? Gotenks. Yes, for all you Dragon Ball Z fans meet the hip hop equivalent. These two spitters trade bars on the track Suitcase. Every since I saw these guys live a few years ago I knew these guys were going places. Get it?
Gambino's highly anticipated album Because The Internet drops next week. He has dropped a lyric visual for 3005 featuring Abella Anderson i.e your pervert friend's favorite porn star. This time it features a teddy bear that has more style and persona than most people. Anyways, make sure to cop the album via iTunes and stop stealing albums from torrent sites because it's illegal.

So glad to finally see this video. St. Millie has been teasing us with it for months, but now the Visual Mecca directed cinematic creation is here. The record "Get Em High" will be featured on Millie's upcoming "Glory" album which will be dropping sometime pretty soon.
Since the release of "No Religion But Up" in late 2012, I've seen Millie begin to craft "Glory" and have heard a number of new tracks as he took them for a test drive at his live shows, including this Lili K assisted anthem. There is a lot of quality music coming from the Chvrch camp very soon, so be prepared to have a new favorite album.

Doc Da Mindbenda and the GrindHouse family have been crazy busy this year making some of my favorite tracks. Although 2013 was a big year for the GrindHouse, plans for next year are already plentiful. Among the projects you can expect early next year is Exclusive's "Uttermost Phenomenal Music". The latest single is too smooth, love The Intruders sample.
In the interest of full disclosure, I had no idea what the sample was, I had to ask Doc.

In the latest offering from TheDREAMERS, Sey revisits the crew's debut album "Visions of Reality" for a new video. The clip was an impromptu music video shot by Sey's brother on an iPhone while back home in Virginia for the holiday. Not to shabby for what it is.
"Get Happy 2.0" is just a couple weeks away, but John Walt isn't done premiering new records. John is joined by No Name Gypsy for the perfect pass play. Put six on the board for this one, and "Get Happy 2.0" on December 17th.
Each week, Chris Crack has dropped new music while we wait on "Trill Withers". As if he hasn't released a huge amount of new singles, Crack returns this week with a very unexpected 6 track EP. I did not see this coming, dude is spoiling us with these raps. Production for the EP is handled by Swag, TMTHY TRTL, and Tree. " Trill Withers" is still on the way soon.

Taylor Bennett just recently released "The Taylor Bennett Show", but intends on starting next year off right with yet another project. Check out the first single from "Mainstream Music" below and details on his upcoming headliner at Reggies after the jump.
The R&B scene in Chicago is anything but buzzing, but the ladies and gentlemen who are doing it, are out to make names for themselves and this city. Among the up and comers is Vince Nantes. Vince has been around for several years, but he's really just getting started with his career. After releasing his hit single "Love Jones" earlier this year, Vince drops off his introduction in the form of a 10 track demo that showcases his broad reach as a vocalist.
