Sicko Mobb are the face of Chicago's burgeoning Bop scene. Combining Drill's searing low-end and liberal use of auto-tune with the bubblegum hooks of ringtone rap, as well as incorporating some of their city's electronic and dance influences, Lil Trav and Lil Ceno are taking their sound to the next level.
At the rate they've been dropping in the past few months, you may never want to hear another "Chi-Raq" remix or freestyle ever again, but please, stick it out for one more and you won't be disappointed.
Listen to Maserati, the latest track from Sicko Mobb, featuring Lil Durk . The cut dropped on Wednesday, November 6th, 2013. Sicko Mobb's future brightens with every new release, and Maserati certainly isn't an exception.
There are plenty of active artists in the bop scene, as the new We Invented The Bop 2 compilation suggests. However, there's one act that seems to have the potential to be the scene's breakout stars, and they just happen to kick off the project.
Last week, we got a new track from one of the most prominent groups in Chicago's bop scene, Sicko Mobb, and awesomely enough, it found them adding the unfuckwithable sounds of steel drums to their infectiously poppy style.
Bop is great enough, but it gets even better when you add steal drums to the mix. Sicko Mobb have tapped into this unfuckwithable formula, adding their impossibly sugary melodies to skittering footwork and colorful island-inspired sounds.
Chicago young'ns Sicko Mobb are currently prepping a sequel to last year's Super Saiyan Vol. 1, and today we've got the first leak from the upcoming project. "Trophies" is a characteristically giddy track from the duo that's bolstered by steel drums, bleepy synths and of course, gallons of auto-tune.
