    Putting On For His City: Kanye West's Chicago Co-Signs

    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.

    Yeezus was filled with unexpected moments, but King Louie's feature on "Send It Up" was one of the biggest surprises. Since guesting on the experimental record, Louie has continued to release some of Chicago's best music, and may or may not have inked a deal with Drake's OVO Sound label (if not he's campaigning pretty hard for it).

    Well, this is interesting. Chicago rapper King Louie may be quietly signed to Drake's OVO imprint, at least, that would be a good explanation for his latest tattoos. Otherwise he's campaigning to get signed really hard.

    With his new album Nobody's Smiling, Common has already made his mission clear: the violence tearing apart Chicago's youth must be addressed. But, in a very cool move, Common doesn't seem to be condemning any of the city's younger rappers, many of whom are associated with the drill scene -- quite the opposite in fact. Multiple versions of his new album's artwork will feature rappers like G Count, King Louie, Lil Herb, Lil Bibby, KD Young Cocky and Dreezy on the cover.
