After working on a featured tape with TM88, Larry June has been making moves and dropping some high quality tuneage. The San Fran man drops some insight on his dreams and aspirations over a very fitting production from Chicago’s KiNG KiLO. This is the second song that the two have created together, so look out for more good music to come.

I think I’m more mad that this song hasn’t been in my life for longer than the 30 minutes that I have been listening to it non-stop. Classic Kanye production with fantastic verses from the youngster Vic and his counterpart Mr. West. Shouts to Stefan Ponce, Smoko Ono, and Mike Dean for help on the track as well. Get used to hearing this one a lot.

The combination of the people on this track was a precursor to just how good this track was going to be. As much as I expected out of this song, it surpassed any and all expectations. The beginning with Lido’s chorus then slows down into a beautiful synthy piano to compliment Towkio’s flow then switching to the juke style beat to let you reminisce just how good Chance’s flow is over that type of beat. Bliss. A group of young individuals who are ahead of the artist curve, and all are paving the way for themselves to solidify their stay in the music industry. Look out for Towkio’s mixtape coming out soon, Lido’s LP, and Chance’s SURF project with the SOX. Good music is on the way so rejoice! In the mean time, let this hold you over.

After putting the city on his back with their previous track, Wimme Nah, the young Chicago MC is enlisted by producer extraordinaire Kaytranada for his brand new single, Driving Me Crazy. Driving Me Crazy brings high energy sounds and great raps. Not too much more to say other than keep hitting replay. Enjoy.

Listen up and listen good. Appleby has been grabbing my attention with each of his few but powerful releases. Today we welcome Him and his brand new single Drinkin’ to FNT. He brings a new and different sound with each new song, and Drinkin’ is no different. Bee actually had a quick something to say about the song:
“The concept and act of drinking is a newly formed habit of mine. Introduced to me last year through an adventurous relationship that ended in mutual silence. Drinkin’ gives insight but reserves the details for a future release.”
What impresses me so much with Appleby and his sound is the artistry behind it. Whether it is the hooks, verses, or production, everything builds together in fantastic harmony. Coupled with Appleby’s fantastic lyricism, his sound is something that will be around to stay. Get to know Appleby and his sound. Also Bee decided to give out another track “Scars in Waiting” which also will help you get to know Appleby. Enjoy and look out for more to come.

Really happy to be posting this one. Larry June, a dude who’s been making moves with 808Mafia and making a name for himself joins forces with IAMSU! to drop this trap banger. Produced by newcomer KiNG KiLO, its a hard Chicago drill sounding beat that works really well with the two flows. Good rhymes and a lot of bass, what more do you need? Enjoy.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-chop squad. I eventually knew that Chance and Lucki Eck$ would be releasing some music together, seeing as they are two of the biggest faces of Chicago rap at the moment. But once I saw that “Young Chop” on the bottom I knew what was in store already before even listening to it. Whether its the eery chop squad intro that completely captivated me, or the slow beat that Chance’s words just effortlessly flow over, the song provides something fresh and different. Even with enlisting top tier talent on his song, Lucki holds down his part very very well. The whole aura of the song really embodies Lucki and the sound he has been creating with his first two mixtapes. Keep this one on repeat, cause it definitely will be hard not to keep listening to. Be on the lookout for more music from Lucki and Chance soon.
