Boiler Room did not disappoint last night with slated artists Shash’U, STWO, Rae Sremmurd, Badbadnotgood, Ghostface Killah, Kaytranada, and special guests, Goldlink, Funk Master Flex, J Rocc, Freddie Gibbs, and Dipset – yeah, man. I swear if the bar didn’t shut it down, Just Blaze and Action Bronson may have taken the stage too. Highlights of the 5 hour event include Ghostface and Killah Priest slaying Wu classics to the live beats of Badbadnotgood, J Rocc absolutely tearing the decks apart, and Dipset playing the hits. Shouts to Ray-Ban and Boiler Room for throwing the dopest party I’ve been to since Pitchfork afters with Tek-Life (RIP DJ Rashad).

If you were any the city of Chicago last week this will come to know surprise to you but Rae Sremmurd had the entire excited for there show. You couldn’t scroll down your Twitter or Instagram timeline without seeing someone talk about the Sremmlife duo. But before they did the show in Chicago at The Mid, they made a stop in near by Hammond Indiana for a #PartyInPeace show at the Hammond Civic Center. Alongside King Louie and Mic Smitty they did what seems to be what they do best, which is kill another show.

Sometimes you go to a show and its pretty laid back, not real high energy but you stick around have a few drinks or whatever. But then there are shows where you toss em back, break a sweat, jump around, and sing the words to every song… last night was the latter. Casey Veggies brought out Rockie Fresh, Rae Sremmurd brought out a couple bottles and a blunt, and Mano and Holt set the tone all night. Last night was tight.
As we put this past weekend behind us, let’s look ahead to another great one that’s shaping up in the CHI.
