Keeps getting better. Singer/songwriter Marcus Kincy is building up to the release of his EP In My 20′s with the release of this new single “10x Better”. Kincy has been credited with piano work for artists including ScHoolboy Q, The Jonas Brothers, and The Dream. Now, he’s embarking on his own musical journey, and if it’s set to be consistent with this track, it’s something we can start to look forward to. Hailing from Chicago, Kincy is sending a message that the Chicago music scene is about more than just good raps. 10x Better is also produced by Kincy, just more evidence that his production skills are one of a kind.
Looking forward to more solo projects!

OTX. Just moments ago, Lucki Eck$ dropped a visual for “Xan Cage”. The video is shot through Lucki‘s eyes as he tells us a bit about his life when he’s off Xanax. He takes us from waking up getting off the Xans to linking up with the squad, and even feelings of being trapped by the Xanax, hence “Xan Cage”. The video only lasts a little over 2 minutes, but the video production is A1, credit to Jimmy Regular on the directing and Jake Gaza for shooting the video.
Be sure y’all get tickets to his first headlining show at Reggie‘s (2109 S. State Street) in Chicago on July 10th, which will be a prelude to his upcoming tape Body High, which is set to release in July

Tink G is on firee! Only a few short weeks after releasing her hit, “Don’t Tell Nobody”, featuring fellow Chicagoan Jeremih, femcee and song bird, Tink brings us more heat with this new track “M.E.N”. As the song just hit the internet waves a few hours ago, I can affirmatively say that this is one of my new favorite songs, partially because I’m already in my feelings lol Tink always makes the soundtracks to my emotions at the time, which is one of the things I love about her. Besides that, the production on this track is so smooth thanks to DJ Dahi, I’m practically mesmerized. It’s a Tink takeover on Twitter (@Official_Tink) today, and you can see by her retweets alone that Tink‘s fans love her most for her ability to relate to them and she loves them back for the same reasons
If you’re not in tune, step your shit up, Tink is a rising star.
It’s Dreez! Immediately following the popularity of her “Chiraq Remix”, Dreezy linked up with Common in support of an anti-violence movement going on throughout Chicago. Now, the two have collaborated on a new track titled “No Good” which also features Ross Agusta. The song is something I would expect from Common, as it caters to his iconic flow, but is different than what we’re used to seeing from Dreezy, but if this is the new direction she’s heading in, I love it. This is a big feature for Dreezy, and I’m excited to see what else she has in store as she continues to get the recognition she deserves

So I got in tune with CDot Honcho about a month ago watching the video for his song with his Honcho Gang affiliate Sumo titled “No Hook Pt.2″. Only a few weeks later I looked up and he was dropping this visual for “50 of Em” featuring my fave, G Herbo which has already reached over 100,000 views in less than a month. The two use a kind of tag team flow similar to the one used “No Hook Pt.2″ and similar to the Herb and Bibby flow we’ve heard on such songs like “Kill Shit”. I’m excited to see what’s coming next from CDot and Sumo, particularly their upcoming collab “I Love”. But for now, some of y’all need to get in tune right here, right now. So their name can ring bells when you see their next moves.

No time to waste! Less than 24 hours after Nicki Minaj released her newest track, “Chiraq”, featuring Lil Herb, one of the city’s hottest femcees, Dreezy, got right in the studio to give us her own remix. Dreezy takes 2 minutes and 21 seconds to rip the track the shreds after paying homage to the first lady of Young Money and vowing to kill the track. Most recently, Dreezy released Schizo, her highly anticipated mixtape that confirmed why she has been on our radar. It seemed that she might have been taking a few shots at some other females rapping in the city, but who’s to say who those shots may have been aimed at. My favorite thing about Dreezy‘s remix, besides the bars, is that she wasted no time with this release. As far as I’m concerned, any remixes following her’s don’t even matter.
Good look Dreez!
If you’re just getting in tune with Dreezy, check out some of my favorites by her:
“Say My Name”, “Ain’t For None”, “Dreamer Pt.2″, “Break A Band”
