Every week we go through SoundCloud and put the gems into a playlist for you. This week features some upcoming artists and some more established rappers, but everyone is from Chicago.
1. just adam. – My Night W/Xander & Darrion
Melodic and dreamy, “My Night” feels just right.
2 LoFi D.R.E.L. – Sleep
LoFi D.R.E.L. has been putting in work with 3 releases under his belt already this year. “Sleep” is an appropriately dreamy track, and a pretty good introduction to him if you don’t already know his music.
3 Calid B – AfroBang 92 ft Brandun Deshay, Aris P & Nikki Bloodsaw
“AfroBang 92” has a serious bounce to it. Off of Calid B’s AfroBang 2: Son of Sogolon it’s an uplifting track with an old school vibe to it.
4. Rich Jones – Dreaming (Ft. Nnamdi Ogbonnaya)
Rich Jones released “Dreaming” in anticipation of his upcoming album The Shoulder You Lean On which is coming out 11/2. Nnamdi Ogbonnaya blesses the track with the hook.
5. BoatHouse – Decision Ft. Jack Larsen
We wrote this track up when it was released, but it’s still on repeat so it’s on this playlist. Jack Larsen and BoatHouse team up on this haunting tune.
