Continuing an impressive run of the WHO Wednesdays are theWHOevers in bringing to you their fifth installment of their series with "HEY!", a track produced by DJ Rhettmatic.

The art of story telling in Hip-Hop is well alive with tracks like these. Today's Chicago rappers consider themselves to plain and simply "spit rhymes", while I have seen that Tragedy among a select few of others "rhyme for reason". Tragedy brings you his latest release, "Love U 2 Death", which will be featured in his upcoming project The Manifestation LP. "Love U 2 Death" in Shakespearean terms would be described as a tragedy, which usually involves death. Tragedy's lyrical prowess has been improving through each release leading up to the release of his upcoming The Manifestation LP, which will be dropping August 27.
Here are some few words by Tragedy concerning "Love U 2 Death":
"Love U 2 Death" is the fourth and final release from my upcoming free album, The Manifestation LP, scheduled to drop August 27th. This is a fictional tale about the all to real subject of domestic abuse. I meant for this piece to be an exhilarating and emotional experience for the listener as well as a way to cope for anyone who's ever been in a similar situation. The art of storytelling is something I take pride in experimenting with musically and I hope the listeners enjoy. "Love U 2 Death" is produced by singer/song writer/rapper/producer Genius Picaso.
