Just Do Me
Young Chop is best known as one of the architect’s of Chicago’s Drill scene, but he’s talented with the pen too. Today we’ve got the lead single from his upcoming King Chop album, titled “Just Do Me.”
Drugz In My Life
Lil Durk Feat. Ike Boy & Korn Capone
Following up last month’s 300 Days, 300 Nights mixtape, Lil Durk decides to come through and share his first offering of 2016 called “Drugz In My Life,” featuring Ike Boy & Korn Capone.
Sosa's locked in right now. It's November 8, and this is Keef's 8th new track of the month. Keef's previous two releases were freestyle'd remixes of old-school Jeezy tracks. Today, he's showing his allegiance to his locked-up incarcerated idol, Gucci Mane, with a hard revamp of Wop's "Atlanta Zoo," which appeared on his 2010 mixtape Burrprint 2. Naturally, Keef's track has been renamed "Chicago Zoo."
Young Chop is preparing his next album, Finally Rich 2. That's right, Chop will release the sequel to Chief Keef's debut album, most of which he produced, without Sosa. On the first single, "That's All," Chop is rapping and not producing. He's given that duty to Chopsquad producer Corey Lingo.
Rich Rocka Feat. Compton Menace
Rich Rocka shared his new album, Rocka II, earlier this year, but he's still coming through with new music. The rapper has teamed up with Compton Menace on his latest record, a hard street banger collaboratively produced by Young Chop and LongLivePrince. The two rappers trade bars on the hook, showing they have quite a chemistry on record. The creeping low-end makes it a perfect track to play in the car.
Around My Way
Young Chop Feat. Vic Mensa & King 100 James
Vic Mensa has found wider success through a strong co-sign from Kanye West in 2015, but he hasn't forgotten where he came from. Today he joins with the Fat Gang crew for a hard drill-inspired banger, "Around My Way".
By now, we all know that there isn’t much of a release strategy when it comes to new music from Chief Keef. On any given day or night, random tracks from the Chicago rapper seem to appear online with little to no notice at all, and that’s exactly what happened again here tonight. Surfacing on Sosa’s soundcloud page over the weekend, but with no promotion or tweets at all, here goes the latest release from Chief Keef titled “Lil Dummy”.
Life Like This
Lil Durk Feat. Jrock & South
Chicago-based Ill Boyz Entertainment and DJ Louie V team up to drop off Lil Durk's latest Young Chop-produced joint "Life Like This" feat. Jrock & South. Young Chop is still killing the beat game and Lil Durk is still killing the hook game. They could collab with other big name artists but time and time again they choose to keep it local with lesser-known Chicago artists.
Kap-G proved himself as a great pop-rap songwriter on last year's Like A Mexican mixtape, and he's continued the tangent on his new tape, Real Migo Shit 3. One of the tape's highlights comes with an unlikely collaboration with Chicago's Young Chop, who opts for a Spanish guitar sound rather than his usual blaring synth brass. It brings to mind his surprisingly effective harpsichord on King Louie's "Bandz So Loud."
Johnny May Cash Feat. G Herbo
One look at the title of Johnny May Cash's new record suggests it might be yet another freestyle over Kanye West's drill-inspired single of the same name. While it would be cool to hear Cash and Herbo go in over the pummeling industrial instrumental, we'd much rather hear them over an original Young Chop beat, which is what we get here.
Soulja Boy Feat. Chief Keef
With 25 tracks, Soulja Boy's recent Swag The Mixtape was ambitious to say the least. It featured features from Migos and Ca$h Out among other notable names but perhaps the best song on the entire tape was "Rollin," featuring Chief Keef. Young Chop is in classic form here with some melodic yet trapalicious production, and Keef handles both the chorus and the first verse.
What Your Life Like
After a year of anticipation, Lil Durk’s debut album, Remember My Name, will finally be arriving on June 2.
As the founder of Chop Squad, Young Chop's linked up with his signee King 100 James a number of times in the past, but now they're making their partnership a little more official. Today, they've announced that they've formed a "plus size duo" called Fat Gang. Here's their first song, "OH."
Lil Durk Feat. Chief Keef
The one-time rivals Chief Keef and Lil Durk come together for the Young Chop/CBMix produced "Decline".
Young Chop Feat. BanksTheGenius
Young Chop made his name working with Chief Keef, and while the two still get together to create magic on occasion, Chop has branched out, working with everyone from the big names, to Chicago up-and-comers. He's also made a point of releasing his own material, which he generally keeps pretty regional in terms of collaborators.
Where I Started
Chief Keef Feat. Johnny May Cash
Nw Chief Keef tracks have almost been a dime a dozen since he parted ways with Interscope last year, and they usually show up in pairs. True to form, Keef's dropped off another right after sharing "All Type Of Shit." Listen to the Young Chop-produced, Johnny May Cash-featuring "Where I Started."
All Type Of Shit
Although a reportedly fake version leaked back in November, Chief Keef's Mansion Musick tape still hasn't arrived in its official form yet. Today, as he's done recently with other Keef tracks from unreleased projects, Young Chop has shared a track from it on his Soundcloud. With its stately string sample, "All Type Of Shit" is about as baroque as drill music gets.
Young Black Bruce Lee
Chief Keef is back again. After dropping off “Kill Him” already today, Sosa decides to come through and release his second Young Chop-produced track of the day with “Young Black Bruce Lee”.
Although it (along with three other Chief Keef mixtapes) leaked last month, the Chicago rapper's Crashin' Computers is set to officially arrive on New Year's Eve. Today, his frequent partner in crime, Young Chop, has shared the CDQ version of a track he produced for the upcoming project. "Kill Him" is the name, and it's almost as weird as some of the self-produced track Keef included on Back From The Dead 2.
Chance The Rapper Feat. Lucki
Those UK producers love to slip little exclusives into their radio mixes, but sometimes it takes a minute for us North Americans to catch on. Jamie XX did a mix for BBC Radio Six earlier this week, giving us a preview of a new Chance The Record cut midway through.
