“We don’t just want to add to the catalog, we want to be on top of the catalog,” says Moonie, one half of the Chicago Hip Hop crew, L.E.P. Bogus Boys. The catalog he is referring to is the Closed Sessions catalog of original music and documentary footage compiled over a 2 year span that features Hip Hop artists from all over the country, and most notably the windy city.
L.E.P. joined that catalog on a hot day in mid-August, just as music from their latest mixtape, Now Or Neva, was heating up the both the blogs and streets. During that session L.E.P. worked meticulously and arduously on their music, bringing in Chicago’s own up and coming producer, Nascent, who tailor-crafted production to match L.E.P.’s grimey, gritty, yet still soulful style. The result of the session is “Don’t Happen That Often”, a song that clearly shows why L.E.P. has been a group leading the recent resurgence of Chicago Hip Hop.
“Don’t Happen That Often” is the first single release from Closed Sessions Vol. 2, the new album and documentary series by Chicago-based indie label Closed Sessions presented by MTV2 Sucker Free, rubyhornet, and SoundScape Studios. Closed Sessions Vol. 2 also features Action Bronson, Mr. Muthafuckin’ eXquire, Raekwon, Vic Mensa, Sir Michael Rocks, CyHi The Prynce, and many others.
