BJ-The-Chicago-Kid-In-My-Mind-Artwork

I know it’s New Kanye Album Day and everything, but I’ve been just as excited for another Chicago artist to drop this month. BJ The Chicago Kid represents everything modern day Motown should be, and after shining on songs with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Freddie Gibbs and Chance The Rapper over the last few years, the time has finally come for BJ to bask in the spotlight.

In My Mind doesn’t technically arrive until next week, but today NPR are blessing us with an early stream of BJ’s sophomore album. Serving as the long overdue follow up 2012’s Pineapple Now-Laters, the 15-track project boasts guest appearances from Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, Big K.R.I.T. and others. Only this time, they’ll be playing the supporting actors to BJ’s lead role.

Enjoy In My Mind in full below and pre-order the album on iTunes ahead of its release next Friday (Feb. 19).

k-michelle-down-in-the-dm-cover

Yo Gotti’s “Down In the DM” banger is catching everyone’s attention. After remixes from Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, and Waka Flocka Flame, K. Michelle decides to hop on the catchy track.

Putting the singing to the side, K. Michelle shows off her rap skills over her fellow Memphis native’s smash-hit. Straight to the point with an raunchy side, the VH1 star doesn’t hold anything back on her “K-Mix.” The singer, who recently announced her third solo LP More Issues Than Vogue, will drop her new single “Ain’t You” on iTunes this Friday when you pre-order the album.

This kid Token comes off like a mad man on the new Joell Ortiz, Domingo record. He’ll definitely get a bunch of Eminem comparisons, but I’d keep my eye on this spitta.

“Anytime I get a chance to hop on a beat and just flex with the bars, it’s always a good time,” says Joell about the song. “On “Kill At Will” I did just that. Played with flows, cadences and words. The uptempo beat and hard knock drums inspired me to kinda double time rap a little more and I love that challenge. Token did his thing as well!!! When I get the chance to lend my stage to a young, up and coming dude who is good at his craft, it makes me smile. This is one of my favorite songs on the project.

The Brooklyn rapper and Latin Grammy award winning producer’s album is available for pre-order now at ThatsHipHop.com.

freddiegibbs

At first glance, you may almost think Freddie Gibbs is freestyling over the JAY Z classic or even that he flipped the track like he did “Dead Presidents,” but that’s not the case. Gangsta Gibbs is taking it back to the streets with this one, while still paying homage to the original, thanks to the haunting production from The Beat Bully. With all the music he’s been putting out lately, look for a new project around the corner.

I didn’t hate his “Work” or “No Role Modelz” remixes. They were cute and clever, I guess, but my iTunes has been begging for a beat as hard as Dave East’s bars lately. Right on cue, the Harlem Hotshot’s latest — and longest! — East Mix finds him raining fire upon Drake’s “Summer Sixteen.” No stray shots aimed at his neighbors, just Dave taking it to the streets for three straight minutes. I’m out here looking for ya biiiiitch!
