I'll say this has to be one of the most creative videos in the history of videos. You really got to see it for yourself it a National Geographic special worth watching. Highlife and Gzus deliver some awesomeness and this just might be on replay all day.

St. Millie drops fresh visuals for Dream 312 which was on his mixtape Road to Glory that dropped not to long ago and was well received in the city. The track is produced by Na$im Williams who has been making waves as of late for his stellar production. Shout to Madison and Whipple which made a cameo and is holding down the thumbnail for the video.

Coming from Chicago's southside, Con$cious has been quietly putting in work on his upcoming debut, "Illuminated". Con$cious and the rest of the Hero Crew don't have a huge collection of music to showcase just yet, but what they have offered has been heat, and I've supported their movement for a while not. 2014 is the year these guys want to break free from their neighborhood buzz and have their names ring out all over Chicago and beyond. I can't say with certainty, but Hero Crew's future is looking bright from where i'm standing. Show some support to the young homie Con$cious, and check out his lead single for "Illuminated" below.
Not to be confused with Henny B's "All Love" that dropped yesterday, more love is spread around today courtesy of Columbia's AEMMP Records. The C-Sick produced banger featuring the smooth stylings of Noname Gypsy, Nick Astro and Taylor Bennett is the first offering from the label's next compilation project called "La Collection". No release date yet, but we do know that C-Sick will be handling the entire projects production. Needless to say, I'm intrigued and excited to hear what's next.

Noisey's "Chiraq" documentary continues with the production side of things interviewing Young Chop and Paris Beuller. If there is anything I have taken from this seemingly one sided Chicago documentary, it's that Chop is a smart dude, and will remain successful as a result of it. If you're trying to be successful in anything, educate yourself, otherwise you're just another stepping stone to someone else's journey to the top.
You've heard the talk about Rockboy's "187", and i'm sad to say you have to wait a little while longer, but there is a silver lining to this dark cloud. The tape isn't scheduled to drop until the fall, but Rockboy with the help of MeechMixes is kicking off a new weekly series with "Lockerz". We can expect something new from K9 each week until the project drops, so enjoy the freebies, and be patient for "187".
Henny sprung some fresh rhymes on us just a week ago with "Rainmaker", but she's back again, and its "All Love" this time around. King Mickey is on the beat once again, and he appears to be handling the production duties on Henny's upcoming "Breathe Again" EP. This will be her first collection of songs since 2012's "Loud Life II", should be interesting to hear where she's at musically these days.

Detroit Native, Boldy James, brings us his gritty street narratives once again with "What's The Word". He lives what he preaches and that credibility always makes his bars go a long way for me. You can hear the trials and tribulations, as well as the triumphs in his tone and word choice. Check out the video above.
The southside's Logan may be lost in his new single, but he seems to have it all figured out in reality. Logan has begun his 2014 pumping out new material, performing, and getting his brand out there anyway he can. Continuing to show his ambition, Logan returns today with the first of several new tracks he will be dropping during his new #MarchMadness series. Expect at least a track or video each week this month.
You may not know Akoni just yet, but i'm certain you will. This up and comer has been sending music my way for some time now, and each release is better than the last. The progression Akoni has made over this past year is notable to say the least, and that stays true, this new Martin $ky produced joint is just the beginning of what we can expect when AkoniTheGreat drops his debut mixtape. Patiently waiting until then.
