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”

A late night specialty! Last night, just as I was ready to call it a night, the internet went nuts following the release of Nicki Minaj‘s newest track “Chi-raq” which features one of the city’s front runners, Lil Herb. Needless to say, this is a HUGE move for Herbo as his name is toward the top of the list of the hottest coming out Chicago. With Nicki‘s raw delivery on her most recent tracks including “Danny Glover (remix)” and “Looking Ass Niggas”, fans old and new are eager to see what else she has in store leading up to her album release. Only a few months have passed since Lil Herb‘s debut album Welcome to Fazoland dropped. He’s already been cosigned by Drizzy himself, this new track only adds fuel to his fire!
The track has already gained the attention of many artists in Chicago who have vowed to remix it and leave their mark on it. Now we play the waiting game; who will be the first to put their spin on this banger.

Back at it! Backwood Jones gives us another banger with his latest release, “X’s n O’s”. The track features MUBU Gang head honcho King Louie. The release comes with a sick visual shot by Dada Creative, who has recently been turning up the Chicago music scene with his unique film style. The smooth instrumental had me instantly hooked as YP dove straight in with a killer flow, and Tony closed up shop with his usual jaw-dropping wordplay.
I love when these two collab :) Never a disappointment!
Happy Birthday Money! Ty Money celebrates his 24th birthday with his new tape Turn Up God hosted by DJ Bandz, DJ Twin, and DJ Victorious of the We Mean Biz conglomerate. The tape contains quite a few features from Chicago’s own Chin Chilla Meek. Other features include Chief Keef, Cap1 and King Louie. I know Ty Money is in his Glo today as all eyes are on the Turn Up God. He successfully built anticipation for this tape with such tracks as “No Hobby”, “Kalifornia” and “OG Larry Hoover”; I know it feels good to sit back and watch the world enjoy something you’ve worked hard to produce.
Ty Money will be celebrating his birthday and Chicago hopefully this weekend, y’all already know The Plug will be in the building!
Tracks to look out for: “Director’s Cut”, “Drugz”, “True Religon”, “Hangover”
S/O DJ Victorious, DJ Bandz, DJ Twin making major moves.
