Auggie The 9th x Show You Suck x Westley Parker - Kevin Mcallister (Free Wessy P) (Get Busy Freestyle)
Well last weeks drop wasn't a one time deal, look like Auggie will be dropping some gems weekly in his new "People's Court" freestyle series. In this edition, he recruits Show You Suck and a currently home bound Westley Parker. I don't know Westley, but apparently he's on house arrest, and without that knowledge the "Home Alone" referenced title wouldn't be as great.

Dope new visual from Chicago's Cadillac Duke. Keeping it simple with some familiar Chi scenes and a cameo or two. Whats next for Caddy?!
So Tee Jay just turned 20... could you piece that together? Really dope track, and anxious to hear it performed this Thursday @ River Rock House in St. Charles, IL. Come out and party with myself and the homies at Illannoy.

Rello and his #Dreamers movement has been pretty impressive so far. They haven't been flooding the internet with new material, but the stuff released has be some really great stuff. Dope beats and some great features.

Cool video to accompany one of my favorite tracks from "The Science Of Sleep". A great project that you should have. I even have a spare hard copy or two laying around. I would happily let you borrow it!
Glad Juelz is getting back on the map. I miss me some Dipset tunes.

Another new series from Court Dunn and Restless Films. For the first edition, they recruit Spitta to tell his origin story.
When you look at all of the most successful hip hop artists, you find compelling stories. Who they are, where they come from and how they came to be. “ORIGINS” is a video series where artists tell their stories, explaining where they came from and the events leading up to where they are at in their careers. For the first entry, we enlisted Curren$y to tell us his story over some music by Keelay. Shouts out to Curren$y, Court Dunn and Jonathan Master. “The Stoned Immaculate” in stores June 5th.
Got some new music from two of our featured artists for our upcoming showcase in St. Charles Thursday. Hit the jump for the download and info on the show. Also below are a couple new tracks from Nick Arcade's upcoming solo project, "Nintendo For Zombies".

Again, another dope video from Visual Mecca Ent., this time of Chance The Rapper performing Super Cold's "Icebox" event last night. I was really disappointed that I was out of town last night, the line-up looked so dope. Highly anticipating the full recap, so I can justifiably kick myself in the ass for missing this one. Chance will be headlining another show soon featuring some of my favorite Chicago emcees. Hit the jump to get more details on that event.

Super smooth cut from Termanology & Statik Selektah. Love it as much as I do? Purchase the new single on iTunes now!
Chicago emcee Roy Smooth spits and records a music video for his "3 Hunna" freestyle that will be featured on his upcoming mixtape, "This Is Just A Mixtape 2".
Twista is all over the place lately, and I can't wait for "Dark Horse", but what i'm really curious about is where he's gonna sign? T is rumored to be entertaining offers from YMCMB and G.O.O.D. Music.
This will be the duo's premier on Goill.net, but I hope there's is more to come. I was instantly into this track, and thought it was definitely a different sound considering Chief Deon and Hightower's Atlanta origin. The track is featured on Chief Deon's "Life As A Chief" mixtape which is available now.
Real talk, until last week I had never heard this Goyte song. Some friends were commenting about it, and I was kind of ashamed I didn't know. Most of my friends go to me when inquiring about music, hip-hop or not. Naturally I did my research, and came across a Chuck Inglish remix! That's a huge win in my book. Hope you enjoy it.

Papya wasted no time linking up with Court Dunn to participate in their "One shot" video series. Paypa performs "Yall Don't Hear Me" off "Henny On The Rocks 2: The Bottle".
I got nothin' on Billah's description...
Little Known fact: Que Billah was the 3rd member of Kriss Kross but got kicked out the group because he was way taller than both Kris’s and Jermaine Dupri. Needless to say Jermaine Durpri wasn’t feeling that. Rumor has it that the whole Totally Krossed Out movement was Billah’s idea. So here are Que Billah’s original verses from the Classic Hit Jump.

The Kids These Days front man, Vic Mensa, raps some bars and does a video over an Asher Roth track featured on "Pabst & Jazz". He definitely left the 'Go to film this one, not sure where though.
Album drops June 5th. More details to come.
This is the artwork 4 my debut album “Live From The Underground”. It’s a representation of how I feel about underground vs mainstream music. At times I feel like mainstream music operates on a totally different planet. This illustrates how I’ve crash landed into the mainstream to bring the sounds from the underground back 2 the forefront. I want to thank everyone for all their support of my journey so far. Especially Team Big K.R.I.T. and my K4L supporters. I put twitter and facebook backgrounds in here for y’all to put on your pages. Let’s make history on June 5th.
Some of you may have heard that local act L.E.P Bogus Boys were scheduled to perform alongside the A$AP crew next Thursday at House Of Blues. Couple days back the Bogus Boys confirmed with WGCI's The Morning Riot that they were removed from the bill as a result of threats by the Chicago Police Department. The duo were notified by promoter Don C that the show would be shut down if L.E.P. performed that night. CPD reasons that the ban is due to the violent content of their music. Are we back in the early 90's?! Listen below to the conversation between L.E.P., Tony Sco, and Andrew Barber from FSD. Also after the jump, check out RSVP Gallery's new tee they made for the above mentioned event.
New visual from the Talib Kweli & Res collaborative. Fun video, check it out.
Some new visuals from the Chicago duos "The Treehouse" project.

Stop by Perpopulus Gallery for the release of DJ Sean Mac's new High End Trappin' tee. Simple design, but a dope tee, and he's throwing a Hennessy hosted party to celebrate. Hit the jump to check out the tees, the design comes in white or black. They will be available to on themacnificentmile.com May 1st.
I like Paypa, but I feel like he's slept on. Today he releases his follow-up to last years release, "Henny On The Rocks". Features include Naledge, Raekwon, Chip Tha Ripper and more. Hit the jump for download and details.
Add-2 drops a new single just after releasing "Save.Our.Souls". This track is a real good listen, definitely check it out. With all the hard shit that has been coming out of Chicago and getting all the big buzz, many forget that the Chi has that real hip-hop too.

2 Chainzzzzzz! The intro is pretty fucked up. Someone would get stuck in the eye for some shit like that.
Not the same cut that Cudder premiered live last week, but new is new, and i'll take it. Whatever Kid Cudi is working on next, it's clear that he's gonna get back to rapping. A lot of people didn't like WZRD... In my opinion, that just means you're musically shallow, the album was excellent! I prefer his raps though, so lets keep this shit coming.

Some Chicago legends working on one of the most highly anticipated albums of the year. In this episode, check out a very rough taste of a track they're working on, and gratuitous lambo flaunting.
New tracks from Chicago emcee Really Doe are few and far between as of late, but City of Win gets him on last weeks leak from their new compilation. "W1N Vol. 1" is looking really good some far. We have already heard tracks featuring Show You Suck, BBU, YP, and more. I wonder who's next?!
With the recent success of Chief Keef, Lil Durk, Lil Reese, and pretty much anything GBE lately, it only makes sense that the crew keeps it moving. Another new name for me, but Yung Jaroc caught my attention with two tracks featuring Keef and Lil Durk.
BONUS: Yung Jaroc x Lil Durk - That Shit Dead
Anyone else think it's ironic that Crooked I is spelling Slaughterhouse at the beginning?! Lol. Either way, this track is a banger, and the second leak from their upcoming album, "Welcome To: OUR HOUSE". Available on iTunes June 12th. Stream only below.

Inspirational words from a dope artist
As we saw in his previous video Nuthin But A Hero, tabi Bonney recognizes the importance of preserving the environment. This past weekend, the artist/director teamed up with packing company Repax for a clothing drive and concert series in honor of Earth Day. This clip, shot in Washington DC, highlights a day in the life of tabi, who recognizes what it means to “move smart”. Going Green has never looked so cool.
Show You Suck and Auggie The 9th sat down with Visual Mecca Ent. to talk the origin of their names, musical influences, SXSW experiences and more.

Evidence wasn't on hand for this visual, so Phonte's mom had to step in and spit his bars. Check this track out on Phonte's "Charity Starts At Home" available on iTunes now!

There is really no reason to sleep on Scheme, Scend, and that whole SRNC crew. You into lyrics? They got 'em. This new track is part of a larger series in which Scheme adds bars to mix of Pete Rock beats. How can you not love this concept?
Chicago rapper/producer BrandUn DeShay hooked up with Brooklyn band, Phony Ppl. Really dope sound here, I would imagine we can expect to hear to interesting collaborations while DeShay is staying up in NYC.
Cudder get backs to rapping on his new track that he premiered while on a recent stop to NY. Its camera phone quality, but it could be worse. Track sounds pretty dope, hopefully the CDQ surfaces soon.
Goodie Mob released the first single from their upcoming album, "Age Against The Machine". Definitely sounds like Cee Lo put a lot of his style into this cut, but I actually like how it turned out. If you agree, you can purchase the song on iTunes now. New album is on the way soon.
So sorry for not posting this on Tuesday! Finals are approaching, and i've been slightly busy, but that's no excuse for missing this one. This weeks addition of #TreatedTuesday features verses from Hollywood Holt, Million $ Mano, Gzus Piece, Sulaiman, and Mic Terror. Hit the jump for last weeks CDQ per usual.

These two are always putting some dope shit together. Black Blago gets Chicago rapper/producer Tree to add a verse to his new cut. Tree beats are so easy to identify now, and that's a good thing. The dude has been cranking out a lot of new material for a variety of artists, and he has an incredibly unique sound.

Everyday I M.U.B.U! I've never seen this Interview Show with Mark Bazer, but i'm in tune now, this shit is pretty funny. King Louie talks about getting started in the rap game, upcoming projects, his love for Adele, and more. Can't wait to hear more from Louie, he's been quite lately in the wake of the Chief Keef movement. The whole reason I started listening to Keef was because he was featured on a King Louie joint. Now, it's obvious Keef has surpassed King Louie's buzz, with talks of Chief Keef possibly signing with YMCMB and his crew mates Lil Durk & Lil Reese inking with Island/Def Jam! King Louie is still doing his thing though, so go get his latest, "Motion Picture" and expect "Dope & Shrimp" sometime soon.

Rockie keeps the visuals coming from "Driving 88". This mixtape just doesn't get old for me, definitely one of my favorites this year. Hope you have it already! If not, there's no need to travel back in time, I set you up with a link to the project above.

Chief Keef is an uncontrollable force right now in Chicago. For this single, Sosa links up with his SODMG brother Riff Raff. At this point it's just another random collaboration, but i'm sure it will land on one of the many projects Keef is working on.
