The hip hop on Late Night continues this week as this time The Roots are paired with Ludacris, who debuts “Grass Is Always Greener” off the upcoming album, Ludaversal. Bonus note: “Grass Is Always Greener” is produced by Chicago’s own Da Internz.
Mikkey Halsted and Da Internz?!
I’m in on that combo, with scratches by DJ ALO matching the raw rap aesthetic. Mikkey’s been supporting a lot of the young cats comin’ out the Chi but is inspired to drop a new project, Bulletproof Dreams, in the wake of Ferguson, Eric Garner, and many of these issues coming to the forefront. Get a sense of this direction with “Web We Weave” below.
A lonely Luda makes for an interesting new single as he raps on some emotions that perhaps we can all relate to. Helping out is the seldom-heard Miguel for a slow chorus that the ladies will surely enjoy and then an even better bridge to close things out. Chicago’s Da Internz have another hit production on their hands too and I think the masses will certainly enjoy. I do too. *Tibs Fav.
Off the upcoming EP, Burning Bridges, impacting in December.

All the free #LudaVerses have been building up to a new #LudaSingle. And for what’s likely the lead single to his upcoming album, Ludacris linked with Miguel and hometown hit producers Da Internz for “Good Lovin”. You can hear the smooth vibes below in a couple of Instagram previews Luda dropped today. Full version surely coming soon.
BJ The Chicago Kid is living up to his name as of late, isn’t he? Last week, he dropped a fresh remix of Kanye West’s “Hold My Liquor”, and for this week’s release he links with Chicago producers Da Internz for the bedroom R&B single “Good Karma”. I love what Da Internz did for the verses and BJ does the beat justice with nice vocals and lyricism. An easy *Tibs Fav. for your R&B roto.
