Putting On For His City: Kanye West's Chicago Co-Signs Apr 7, 2015 at 04:19pm
Although he once claimed to be "so Chi" that you thought he was bashful, Kanye West isn't frequently thought of as a quintessential Chicago rapper, with his global fame often overshadowing his ties to his hometown. Mr. West is unarguably the most popular rapper to ever come out of the Windy City, but the regional term "Chicago rap" is more likely to be associated with Common and No I.D., or even younger dudes like Chief Keef at this point.

Auto-tune was something of a taboo in rap, for some it may always be, but for the most part, it's been accepted as a common songwriting tool. As prevalent as it may be today, there was only on figure who can really be attributed with popularizing the effect, and that's T-Pain (sorry, Cher).
The Evolution Of Chief Keef

This week, Chief Keef caused a stir by releasing two tracks with Andy Milonakis, a comedian who'd formerly rapped alongside RiFF RAFF and Dirt Nasty in the group Three Loco. The man who came up as the poster boy for Chicago's violent drill scene was chilling out a bit and embracing humor with these tracks, or so it seemed. In actuality, the Milonakis co-sign was just the latest in a long line of unexpected and seemingly out-of-character moves by the dude born Keith Cozart.

Love Sosa? A Breakdown Of Chief Keef Fans & Critics Jan 12, 2015 at 12:21pm
Chief Keef emerged from the almost cartoonishly violent streets of Chicago’s South Side in 2011, riding the crest of a grassroots, for-teens-by-teens movement that came to be known as “drill music.” Like all ascendant genres, drill (and, by extension, it’s superstar Keef) was met with a mix of traditionalist revulsion, outsider derision and early adopter over-adulation. The simplistic rhymes and aggressive beats left some folks shaking their heads and others nodding along.

Samples Of The Week: December 18
Samples Of The Week: December 18 Dec 18, 2014 at 09:39am
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".  This week, see who Chief Keef & Kanye West, Fabolous and Wiz Khalifa sampled on their recent tracks, all of which can be found on HNHH.

Chief Keef's signing with Interscope records was reportedly worth $6 million dollars, but while the figure made headlines at the time, so did the conditions.

Statistics indicate that the rapper may have been just shy of that number, but whether it be related to the tally or not, Interscope decided to cut ties with Keef last month.
