Last time Doc and Na$im Williams linked up was in summer anthem "61 Lilies". Chicago emcee Doc and Treated Crew producer Na$im Williams bless us with "Grateful", a record that acknowledges the violence in Chicago and adds a spin to this issue through humility and being able to live yet another day to bless this city with great, empowering music to bump to. Enjoy!
#MrMixshow is back with a "Hot Pick" for your Friday. A new artist emerging from Chitown, Young Merger, rocked the Coast 2 Coast Live event recently in Chicago and has a lot more on deck for the ladder part of 2013 and even more in 2014. Stay Tuned.
"Feeling Good" is an up-tempo, hard-hitting smash that features the Chicago emcee and beatsmith rhyming over a heavy bassline, crisp strings, and monstrous claps. The listener gets an interesting perspective of an up-and-coming musician describing the hardships of succeeding in the competitive music industry.
"Still on a mission, baby, but I'm doing fine/'Cause I know if I keep racing I'ma see the finish line/And I'm actually doing better than I even thought I would/So really no need to worry 'cause I'm feeling really good," sings TrakBoss during the very melodic hook.
RichDaPitt is an upcoming rapper from Chi-Town. Coming from the city of Detroit, he brings that D-town feel to his lyrical punchlines and beats that anyone can ride to. Personal Favorites of mine are Someday U & Eye, Gold Casket, and Cruise Control. Rich's metaphors and delivery are something that Chicago Rap needs and will appreciate.
