Producer: Rashid Hadee & Slot-A - FULL, CDQ, Track off the weekly series, #illRaps*Tibs Fav.™
You have probably taken note of the #illRaps series by now. It has been one consistent feature, week after week, and the blizzard outside has done nothing to deter these Chicagoans from earning another one - the biggest collab yet on the #illRaps series! Follow along with me here: F.A.B.L.E., Neak, Rashid Hadee, Slot-A, Sincerely Yours, Mike Schpitz, & NidaNasheeda are the featured artists. All emcees do their thing (in that order) with NidaNasheeda providing a soulful chorus to the groovy production. F.A.B.L.E. and Rashid Hadee are newcomers to the #illRaps series but they fit right in, with a dope verse from Neak laced in between their nice efforts as well. I gotta give the crown to Sincerely Yours though, whose verse really resonated with me on first listen and onward. There are many more highlights across the record to name (I see ya too, Slot & Schpitz) so hear and judge for yourself on this new jam, which dables in the culture, lifestyle, and mindset of hip hop today. All in all, "Means The World" is one of my favorites on the #illRaps series and leaves me wanting more. We'll just have to look ahead to next week and see what they come up with next!
Down below lies a trio of music videos, highlighted by an extra-long cut from Cyhi Da Prynce. You can also peep the visuals to Fabolous' "Devil In A New Dress" freestyle from yesterday and Teairra Marí's sexy new video for "Body", and as one more bonus: a "Purp & Yellow" trailer that is actually quite entertaining, also featuring Ron Artest, Matt Barnes, and Shannon Brown. Enjoy!
