"We recorded this last January…this was the second track i recorded with Chance, and the first time i met Vic. Later that day i gave him the “Midway Dagger” beat for Walk Away Music and the rest is history. Obviously Chano blew up and we never got to link musically so i took the opportunity to open my hard drive and make a jam!
Flippin the vibe of the original Nez n Rio beat and giving it that Mindbenda touch…hint, weed has involved lol"
- Doc Da Mindbenda
Vic, Chance, and the emerging hometown producer DBM. This one's a solid pick up for your rotation today.
The NWO is considered to be one of the greatest factions in wrestling history. It was a Heel stable that became a phenomenon that catapulted WCW over the former WWF in the Monday Night Wars battle for ratings supremacy. This Heel stable was a collective group of the best wrestlers in the professional wrestling industry that constantly recruited to continue its dominance and strength in collecting the best the professional wrestling business had to offer. It was a movement that continues today through fans, video, and history.
Today, Na$im Williams drops his latest project Na$im World Order: Black & White. A compilation project featuring the best the city of Chicago has to offer. Like the NWO, Na$im has created his stable consisting of his Treated Crew brethren, Probcause, Henny B, Chandler London, Doc, , Ego, Vic Spencer, Nico Segal, Scheme, and various other rappers and producers. The mixtape is a good listen from top to bottom which is a great reason to continue to support Chicago Hip-Hop. The Monday Night Wars might be dead but Hip-Hop in Chicago like professional wrestling in the 90's is in full effect.
Na$im Williams is the rap game Hulk Hogan. Best believe he just "Leg Dropped" the competition with this great project! For more info on Na$im Williams visit our Hip-Hop Taste of Chicago series.
We have been so accustomed to Chandler London's vibrant side that we never got a taste of how menacing his lyrics can become. London enlists Cocky to a gritty-trap instrumental by Na$im Williams & Doc Da Mindbenda that immediately became London's latest single, "2 Different Sides". It comes to prove the insightful meaning behind "2 Different Sides", it can be illustrated as North or South side of Chicago as well as good and evil. Nevertheless, "2 Different Sides" illustrates London & Cocky's greatest work yet in posing the question, there is two sides to the story, what will your story be?
