Tragedy The Beast has been crafting one hell of a project by releasing effective singles that culminate in his Hip-Hop manifesto that he calls The Manifestation LP. Tragedy has been able to talk about issues such as gang and domestic violence, positive influences for the city's youth as well as the struggles to of success in the Hip-Hop industry. This project makes Tragedy one of Chicago's most promising emcees as he sets sail to conquer Hip-Hop from sea to shining sea. Witness his Manifest Destiny.
Few words by Tragedy: I am very proud to present to you, The Manifestation LP. This is truly my best body of work thus far. Everything from the title, to the album cover, to the music is meant to symbolize my transition from sitting in front of my computer writing rhymes to becoming a respected artist in the city of Chicago and eventually FURTHER BEYOND. I feel this project is only the commencement of what's to come from me musically. A big shout out and thank you to all the producers and fellow artists that contributed to this opus - I'm grateful, know dat! I hope you all enjoy, It's tha BEAST B!tch!

"Juan Blaze" is Scheme's latest single that will be featured on his upcoming all-Spanish mixtape Pocket Full Of Pesos, which will be released on September 23. What I find intriguing about "Juan Blaze" is how Scheme plays homage to four different Latino Hip-Hop entities in not only sampling the intro from the Calle 13 and Orishas track "Pal Norte", but as well as remaking Fat Joe's "John Blaze" that featured Big Pun. To those that are not familiar with any of the four names I just mentioned just know this, they are the most successful Hip-Hop entities and individuals in Latino Hip-Hop history. Scheme uses "Juan Blaze" to showcase his Spanish lyrical abilities to the greatest of his capabilities by spitting FUEGO (fire) and showcasing why he is among the elite of Chicago emcees and Latino emcees doing their thing in today's music business.
Maya Symone links up with Village emcee, Kembe-X as they pay tribute to their hometown in "Summertime Chi". The track showcases Symone's soulful signing over a trap-styled instrumental that Kembe-X lyrically demolishes.
Words pays his respects to two of the most prolific emcees in hip hop as he prepares for the release of his debut album, "Point of view" set to release this fall. Words begins this track with an incredible sampled interview of Jay-Z reflecting on the cinderella story that was the late great, Big L, as well as how this fallen Hip-Hop hero has what it took to become a commercial darling. Words immediately starts to lyrically dismantle the iconic instrumental that helped put both Big L and Jay-Z on the map. This track is a gem from beginning to end. Make sure you dont sleep on one of Chicago's upcoming emcees.
