Spotify’s Rap Caviar Live made a stop at Chicago’s legendary Aragon Ballroom this past weekend and it was a hell of a time. Some of the hottest names in Hip Hop today graced the futuristic looking stage in front of 5,000 fans. Cardi B kicked things off with an early set followed by Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert.

There were a few surprises appearances that night as well. DJ Drama took the stage to get people ready for Lil Uzi Vert’s headlining set and showed some hometown love by bringing out Vic Mensa and Lil Bibby. Lil Uzi followed that up by brining out G Herbo for 3 songs during his set. Lots of great performances all night long. See some photos I captured below.  Continue Reading

Chance The Rapper & Vic Mensa Named 2014 XXL Freshman

posted by Alberto May 5, 2014

20140505-190624.jpgChicago is finally represented well on the XXL Freshman cover. I seriously thought last year would be the year, but we received only one spot and Chief Keef was in jail, so he couldn’t even part of the cover. This year, Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa, Lil Bibby and Lil Durk all got a spot on the cover and they are well deserved. Isaiah Rashad is someone else who we are really happy to see on the cover. We were recently introduced to Jarren Benton, so we will be on the lookout for more new material from him. Check out the rest of the cover up above and be sure to pick up a copy when it hits newsstands.
