Dru B ‘November 9th’

Dru B is one of my favorite new Chicago producers and he’s had a great start in 2014. November 9th marks a culmination of his work throughout the year, highlighted by fellow buzzing Chicago artists Taylor Bennett and Wheatie & Murph Watkins.

The 5-track tape also consists of the recently featured “Streets of Rage” by Carolina rapper SkyBlew and a track that flew under our radar until now: Aaron Johnson‘s “My Ego”. I included the music video for the latter — a smooth, lyrical and inspiring record and not the braggadocios record you may expect from just the song title.

Finally, Dru concludes the tape with a feel-good Summertime Chi beat that brings back the mood of happier times here in the Chi as we’re currently in the midst of some bitter cold winter weather, ha! Listen below and enjoy!

Who will believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself?
