Here is a standout track off Alex Wiley's new mixtape today, a sequel inspired by the original: "Spaceship II". It should go without saying that the original is Kanye West's "Spaceship" featuring Consequence and GLC. It's most fitting that the latter, GLC, is on this 2013 version with two of the city's hottest up and coming rappers: Wiley and Chance The Rapper. Gotta love the subtle nods to the original, with the same theme and complimentary new production all reigning supreme. All parties involved do their thing and I especially like the intensity that Alex Wiley delivers. This is an instant *Tibs Fav. and must-have in your rotation. The next, natural move is to then vibe with Club Wiley in full, and you can do just that here.
Here's the debut mixtape from yet another Chicago cat on the up & up, Alex Wiley. If you downloaded and listened to "Creepin" then y'all ready know this tapes got heat - now check the rest.

Jerry's Wicker Park
Some tight peoples are gonna be at Jerry's in Wicker Park (1938 W Division St) featuring Mic Terror, Alex Wiley, and Kembe X. With drink specials and live graffiti, the $10 cover sounds pretty legit. Get Treated.
Alex Wiley pays homage to the famous Icky Shuffle from former Bengals star Icky Woods with this new track off #ClubWiley featuring Action Bronson and produced by Thelonious Martin. Love the reference, hah! I think Wiley kills it with the fast flow and delivery and enjoyed his rhymes a little more than the more well-known Bronson. Lookin' forward to #ClubWiley dropping through Closed Sessions on June 4th.
After a 2 week break from this sh*t, I'm back. Unfortunately for us this past week didn't produce too much heat, just a bunch of okay's and solids (smh). Lets not let that stop us from enjoying our weekend with some new bumps though. Take these few tracks I felt were a bit better and more fitting than the rest. This week I bring you records from the likes of Lil Wayne, Young Scooter, Alex Wiley, Dubb, and more. Lets get it!
Honestly, I think I enjoyed "Jugg Season" a bit more. Future makes that record. But Ma$e who I never expected to come with sh*t again, brought it on "Make It Through The Struggle." No idea what got into homie but he gets two thumbs up for his effort on this record. Now if only he could stay consistent with that sh*t. Guess we'll just see what happens. Personally, I doubt it. Prove me wrong though.
Said to come off Wayne's upcoming album, I Am Not A Human Being II, is this new release featuring 2 Chainz on the hook entitled, "Rich As F**k." I'll admit, I'm not that much into Wayne as I used to be. And I'm sure that's the case for many others around too. So Wayne can thank his 2 Chainz hook for the feature. Oh...and smfh at the end of this song. Super wack!
Tomorrow is Alex's big listening party event @ Jugrnaut for #ClubWiley. So why not throw one from him in the mix to get y'all prepped and going. Those of you who didn't catch this when I posted it yesterday can hop on now. #ClubWiley coming soon!
To be quite honest, this is just a filler. No one really came with it like that this week with the exception of a select few. So therefore I don't really have sh*t to say about this record. Just take it and go enjoy your weekend (It's a sad day. smh).

No honorable mentions this time around. But here's a video I really enjoyed this past week. It's one for Fabo's "Life Is So Exciting," off his S.O.U.L. Tape 2, featuring Pusha T.
Can't let you attend Saturday's listening event for #ClubWiley without lacing you with one more. Produced by Chicago up and comer, Rozart, comes a hard hittin' new record entitled, "Swish." Grab the gem above and look for #ClubWiley to drop soon. Ballin...SWIIIIIIIISH!
