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.
