Next to blow from the Chi?

Being from Chicago it is pretty easy to tell when the city has chosen a few select emcees to champion. As Famous Dex and Warhol have already ascended to relative prominence in my opinion the next up has got to be Valee. Valee’s signature hushed, druggy, and cracked delivery has been gaining him lots of traction and he just got a major co-sign from Chance on the “Are U Live” record as well as new joints produced by Cardo Got Wings. Standouts for me are “Shell”, “I Got Whatever”, “Own Shit” and “Two-16’s”. Peep Valee’s catalog below.

 

 

Famous Dex “Out The Window” Video

Yo diamonds so fu

Artists like Dex and Pump perfectly embody popular rap in 2017. Songs based entirely on energy and beat and ans that are drawn into the person for reasons far beyond the music. While some have their gripes with this new era of rap I love it and Dex came through with a heater called “Out The Window” the other day. The beat is a crazy unorthodox anime theme song sample, that fits perfect with Dex’s crazy style. Watch the video below.
