Jeno Cash and Payroll whip up magic on the Jazz Band-sampled “Whip It,” produced by 313 legend, Helluva. For the record, I always like it when artist in the city cultivate that retro sound in their music. Watch Jeno and Pay get to it below.

Six Albums That Prove Underground Rap Is In A Great Place Right Now

This post was originally published on this site

This is a complete bullshit occurs-to-you-in-the-shower thought, but bear with me here: Trap music is our disco. It’s our late-’10s equivalent of what was happening in the late ’70s. Think about it: Trap is an absolutely dominant commercial force. It’s built around a very specific aesthetic blueprint, right down to its drum pattern, with skittering … More »

Watch Payroll Giovanni’s dope new video for “Presi”

We might have a new President, but Payroll always has a new President — Rolex to be exact. The jewelry and watch king of the D returns with a new video today, which finds one of his homies trying to stunt with some material items that aren’t his. Nothing new there, as the world is built on fraudulent flexing. Never mind that, though, watch the Sosa Dreamz come to life in the hilarious video you can now view below.

Throw ya Rollies in the sky, and wave them side to side. Flossin’ season is upon us.

 

♫ Listen: Payroll Giovanni & Cardo – Big Bossin Vol.1

This post was originally published on this site

The Cardo produced Big Bossin Vol.1 MC’d by Payroll Giovani & is exactly the sort of warm-feels we all need on those dark-at-noon winter days that are grey at sunrise, street-lamp lit for 20 hours a day. Classic gangster funk reigns in Big Bossin Vol.1, w3rk’d out in UV-rays of forward thinking production, while remaining old school, narrated by complimentary voice harmonizing in anti-scaled spit rhymed in an ouroboros of play-making. Payroll Giovanni & Cardo complete that vibe of Big Bossin Vol.1 with strapped up, ready to spark lyrics that entwine breathtaking beats that shatter the most expensive to paper-plate speakers. Ride a little slower. Heat up the clip. Relax in the game:

Last night, FSD and Red Bull Sound Select joined forces for our final event of 2016. Yes, it’s been an exciting year from the two brands, having curated events worldwide with the likes of Chief Keef, Jeremih, Soulja Boy, Smino, BJ The Chicago Kid, Too $hort, Playboi Carti, Joey Purp, Martin $ky, WarholSS, Femdot, Payroll Giovanni and many more.

But last night, we capped off an incredible year with our final installment, which served as our Holiday Party of sorts, highlighted by a reunion of the legendary Chicago duo The Cool Kids. Yes, that’s correct: Chuck and Mikey are back, and we brought their first reunion show in Chicago to Thalia Hall last night. The results? History. A sold out night, filled with love and incredible energy — and Holiday cheer. As you can tell from the pics and video below, it was an incredible night, and despite being up against odds such as a 3 degree temperature we still brought the city out. In a major way.

Payroll Giovanni and Femdot rounded out the bill, while someguynamedty and Owen Bones handled DJ duties. I have to admit, Femdot really stood out last night and there was a lot of buzz in the room about him. Expect big things from him in 2017.

It was truly a night to remember. We’ll be back in a few months for our official 2017 kickoff, but until then, enjoy the pics and clips below.
