I first discovered Rex Life's Rajj after listening to another friends song she on Spotify. The first joint I ever heard was Running Man that song floored me! Then I heard GPS another banger in my book. The song that I stuck on repeat though wasn't this joint here. It's very new wave but chill while still preserving great lyrics and word play in lieu of the "mumble" rap and excessive adlib autotune vibe of many records out now. I was definitely excited to discover husband music amen think I will remain a fan. Check out the vid!
"I throw a tv at you crazy, b*tches say P you crazy, a pain in the @$$, but f*ck you pay me!!!"
Man Prodigy has so many great and grimey quotables this mix was so much fun to make. I revisited a lot of joints that are just powerful. P's delivery and pure don't give af always come thru clear and you feel every word he spits! I tried to capture as much of this essence as i could in this short 12 minute mix. I'm sure i could have at least compiled an hour worth of Prodigy's verses but i hit some of my personal fav highlights. What's your favorite Prodigy song/verse?
Here is the ode to my hometown hero and one of my favorite producers Kanye West! We decided it was time to bring it home and make a tribute to a living legend from Chicago. Check out the mix and come see future legends in the making at SIC Sundays this Sunday May 21st @ Refuge.

So salute one more time to lil big bro Bundy and remember FakeNeedNotApply.
What can you say about Super Producer Timbaland...one of the most influential music makers of our generation. When he was chosen as this months tribute artist i must admit at first I did not know where to start. So many records so little time. So to keep it simple i picked mostly his hip hop records so unfortunately no aaliyah or ginuwine on this one. (You can find them in some of my r&b mixes tho check them out on my dj tab) But i did manage to get a few of his biggest hits and a couple sleeper cuts and im sure there is at least 1-2 songs on there that you may not know Timbo produced. So check it out and if you're in Chicago and you would like to hear more Timbaland tributes at our live event then be sure to check out SIC Sundays! There is a ticket link below.

So i submitted this R&B and smooth hip hop mix to a radio station for inclusion in an after dark mix. I just found out yesterday that they said no to accepting it....SO i have it here available for you all. Its a cool mix for your late night wine sipping night cap. Or when you're headed home from the club with your companion. Check it out and let me know what occasion you would play it at.
Man gotta love Andre 3000 for the appearance on this. Apparently he directed the video as well. Its always cool to see him just pop up on the most unexpected records and kill it! One of the members of this group reps chicago too...but the issue at hand is What do yall think about Dre 3000 popping up on these type of records?
