Taylor Bennett “Hope”

Taylor Bennett has been a part of a new breed of emcees in the city of Chicago that have been making positive impact upon the city through their music. As a continual part of that positive process he continues to put out more music leading up to his sophomore project Mainstream Music, which will be dropping May 4th. Taylor releases “Hope”, the third single from his upcoming project to illustrate the faith he has had in his fans that all await the arrival of a new star in the making within the city’s music scene.

Chiraq Documentary (Ep. 5 SaveMoney Edition)

In the fifth episode of Chiraq, we step outside of drill music and catch up with Chicago rapper Vic Mensa and the rest of his SAVEMONEY crew. They spend the day gathering cash to bail fellow rapper Joey Purp out of jail, and on the way we chat about the city’s scene. Vic doesn’t associate himself with the Chiraq lifestyle because he feels it’s too negative, but understands the struggles of those who come from that part of the city. He’s also, surprisingly, a really big fan of Rage Against the Machine.

Aerosol Supply Presents: Air Crew

With permission from a local curator, Chicago’s Air Crew came together a few weeks ago to paint a pre Art Basel piece in Logan Square. Our friends at Aerosol Supply joined Air Crew to capture the process, culminating in a recap video that’s all Chicago everything (with Vic Mensa’s “YNSP” as the soundtrack). From graffiti to music, the video embodies a fine example of some positive artwork going on in Chicago. The work of artists Heks, Dez, Cero, and Decades can still be seen today near the southwest corner of Milwaukee and Fullerton. Check out the video and then get out and explore. #Gowhereyoulove
