Playlist Special: The Best of Chicago at the moment (hint: does not include Chief Keef)

Chicago_Skyline

It’s the city that gave us Common, Kanye, Twista, Lupé, Chance, Jeremih and R.Kelly. Chicago has long time been a hub of American urban music culture, and due to the fire that has been coming out the Windy City; fire which, more often than not receives sometimes little to no recognition, having been overshadowed by certain other dreadlocked artists, we thought we’d dedicate a playlist to all these up & coming groups and individuals who deserve your attention. Here’s what we think is some of the best Chicago Hip Hop of recent times:


Sir Michael Rocks Ft. Casey Veggies & IamSU – Bussin’


Lil Herb aka G Herbo Ft. Chance The Rapper & Common – Fight or Flight (Remix)


Common Ft. Vince Staples – Kingdom


Alex Wiley Ft. Mick Jenkins – Own Man


Lorine Chia Ft. Chance The Rapper – Living In Vain 


Kembe X Ft. Isaiah Rashad – Caged Bird 


Green Sllime Ft. Solarfive – Nichols Park


Lucki Eck$ – Reflections


Jean Deaux – T.M.S Freestyle


Sicko Mobb – Fiesta


Supa Bwe – 0000 (Red Light)


Solar Five – Etiquette


King Thelonious (Producer)


Mikkey Halsted – My Life


Tink Ft. Lil Herb & Lil Bibby


Lil Bibby – For The Low


Honestly, we could keep going, but that’s enough for now! Maybe a Round 2 playlist soon. Big up Chicago!
