Hip-Hop: Lupe Fiasco, Mac Miller, Casey Veggies, Mann, Aziz, Chiddy

Lead singer & songwriter for Fall Out Boy, Patrick Stump, recently hit the booth with Lupe Fiasco to create what has potential to be Chi town’s new anthem.  Both putting on for their city, this video represents the windy city well and gives every Chicago-an(?) something to be proud of.  Chicago is not the only thing Lupe is publicly passionate about.  The politically controversial MC recently joined a Wall Street protest prior to shared his beliefs on the current economic condition and New World Order [read up on that here].

In lieu of reaching 900,000 follower’s on Twitter, @MacMiller dropped a new track titled “Willie Dynamite” in part of his ‘Road 2 A Million Followers’.  Young Macintosh keeps his pimp hand strong, dedicating this track to the 1974 flick famous pimp, Willie Dynamite.  Produced by Big Jerm, Mac keep’s it it true to his style with catchy yet insightful lyrics and even drops an autotuned bar for the K.I.D.S. Blue Slide Park coming November 8th!

Casey Veggies, who will be accompanying Mac on tour, also dropped his debut album, Sleeping In Class, today on iTunes.  I haven’t had a chance to listen to it yet, but I’ll update you all with the best cuts once I have a chance to do so.  For now, here’s the highly anticipated track off the project, featuring none other than the young Mac himself.

My favorite 5 1/2′ west coast cat daddy, Mann, dropped a nice new laid back bubbler track.  It’s been hit or miss with Mann, but the #BirthdayGang chief keeps it shaded up on this nice and easy beat, leaving us with a new track to chill to.

Since the recent release of his junior mixtape, Daydreams of A Spaceshot, my boy Aziz has dropped a few bonus tracks that didn’t make the tape.  This is not the typical sound we’ve grown accustomed to from Zig Zag, but I.L.O Productions flips the Yukon Blonde track for a smooth, slightly poppy track.  Sounds a bit like something we’d hear from Wiz, but I’m feeling this joint from Aziz.

I feel guilty posting this in a hip-hop update, but it didn’t deserve it’s own post, so here it is anyways.  VV Brown scooped Chiddy (of Chiddy Bang) for a verse off her newest pop hit, “Children (Keep On Singing)”.   Settle down, it’s not really the ice cream truck…
