Chicago Student Refused To Stop Listening To Lil Herb's Mixtape In Class, His Teacher Wasn't Happy Oct 3, 2015 at 02:59pm
We've been having a hard time turning off Lil Herb's new mixtape, Ballin Like I'm Kobe, and it seems we're not the only ones.
Just when you thought Future and Drake would be the year's most unlikely duo, an announcement came in about a forthcoming joint tape from the world's most recognizable drill rapper and a pop/reggae artist whose last top ten hit dropped in 2009.
In the past few years, a number of teenage rappers from Chicago have gone viral thanks to breakout music videos filled with violent paraphernalia. The latest is "Drill Time" rapper Slim Jesus -- wait, Jesus isn't from Chicago, he's from Hamilton, Ohio.
With its blunt illustrations of the dangers of life growing in inner city Chicago, drill music has had a powerful influence shaping the sound of hip hop over the course of the last half-decade.
Lil Herb and Lil Bibby's "Kill Shit" was the record that first put them on, with a Herb line being quoted by Drake on Twitter, and the rapper later interpolating the track on Nicki Minaj's "Chi-Raq".
Commercial rap conversation often revolves around the same dozen or so artists, with the spotlight constricting further in regional rap discussions. This is especially true of Chicago.
King Louie speaks the truth: “They say you can make it anywhere, if you make it in Chicago.” The city notoriously known as Chiraq has been long overshadowed by gang violence, and those fortunate enough to make it out the trap are considered heroes.
Despite appearing on Kanye West's experimental opus, Yeezus, King L is still something of an underdog of Chicago rap. It's too bad, because if you trace things back, he's one of the most influential artists when it comes to the city's current scene.
'Round N Round' is the latest visual from emerging Chicago, Illinois bop duo Sicko Mobb, the track having been produced by Mr. Infiniti and included on their debut mixtape Super Saiyan Vol. 1, which dropped in late December.
Fredo Santana puts his ski mask on in his latest visual. The track appears on his recent "Trappin' Ain't Dead" mixtape.Watch Fredo Santana "Trap Boy/Traphouse" Video - it's the latest video from Fredo Santana, having dropped on Monday, January 6th, 2014.
