Picture Me Rollin
Mikey Dollaz has been a man on a mission ever since his promising basketball career got derailed by legal struggles. Over the weekend, the Chicago rapper released his anticipated mixtape Picture Me Rollin. Although the tape bears little resemblance to the Tupac track, it does display Dollaz' astonishing versatility, with everything from trappy ballads to trunk-rattling EDM-influenced bangers to straight up party anthems.

King Louie comes through as the day winds down (well, work day) and surprises fans with a brand new project. This follows up his 6 God Tony mixtape from October.
6 God Tony
King Louie has been great for a while, but he's also had an especially strong stretch recently. Last year's Tony mixtape was among his best projects, and Drilluminati 3 continued his streak. All the while he's been hinting at some kind of affiliation with OVO, that as of yet, has not been confirmed.
Drilluminati 3: God Of Drill
Just hours after dropping off his video for “Throw Yo Sets Up”, King Louie decides to return and release the third installment in his Drilluminati mixtape series.
The Green Dot
Yesterday, Chicago's ZMoney hit us with the first piece of content we've gotten from him in a while, the "Count This Money" video. Although he's still incarcerated, he's scheduled to get out later this month, and is celebrating by releasing a new mixtape, The Green Dot. Opening with an intro from ZMoney that's delivered via a county jail phone, the tape goes on to feature the rapper adopting the alter ego "Shawty Paid."
King Louie is one of the most prolific rappers out of Chicago, releasing new projects on a fairly regular basis. That being said, he's been unusually quiet in 2014, with his last project-- the very underrated Drilluminati 2 -- dropping last December. While there's been no shortage of great music coming out of chicago in the months past, it's good to hear from the singular talent of Louie once again.
