I just got the word that PayUp’s frontman André just dropped a freestyle. Dude hasn’t done one of these in a while. I guess he wants people to know he can still talk his shit even though he’s about to drop a project with all original joints. So here he is over Jeezy and Wayne’s “Ballin.”
The Cypher is a brand new monthly freestyle series held in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. It features several of Chicago’s up-and-coming Hip-Hop artists freestyling over various beats courtesy of DJ C3PO. The first one kicked off a few weeks ago, sponsored by your very own ImFlashy so you already know we had to capture all of it on camera. Artists include Young General, Boy Illinois, Gatz and Blink. This is one of many to come to if you’re an artist or producer in Chicago and you want to get down, let us know.
This also serves as a little preview of what everyone can expect from our upcoming Melee In Bucktown event happening this Friday. It all goes down at the Debonair Social Club in Wicker Park beginning at 9pm. If you need more details, head over to the event page and we’ll see everyone on Friday!
Chicago’s YP is prepping for his release of his latest project No Sleep, but in the meantime, he wanted to give you a little something to keep you tied over until the project drops on Tuesday December 14th. I think it’s safe to say he does it justice. What do you think?
Laws has been steady grinding as of late, working on his Paul McCartney dedication mixtape dubbed Yesterday’s Future which will be hosted by DJ Mick Boogie and Don Canon. Until you get a glimpse of that, he has a little something something to tie you over. “Dark & Twisted” features Laws going on over “Dark Fantasy” and “Gorgeous” from Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Those records also happen to be two of my favorites from the album. Don’t get me wrong, the whole album is crazy, but those two records are ridiculous.
We haven’t heard a whole lot from Jadakiss as of late, but that’s primarily because he’s been hard at work in the studio preparing his upcoming mixtape I Love You. In the meantime, he hops on Mysonne’s “Tape Rock” joint which may or may not be his verse for the official remix. I guess we’ll have to wait and see (Jadakiss laugh).
