Have you all heard the news? Chicago Hip-Hop is rapid rising in popularity and a part of that is phenomenal collaborations like these. Producers THEMPeople enlist Via Rosa, Joey Purps, Tokyo Shawn, Nico Segal and Kamie de Chukwu to the first single"Reports", off the upcoming Smoke Breaks 4.
A few backs, Kami & Purp announced a collaboration project between the two of them under the alias of Leather Corduroys and dropped the dark, jazzy track "Prophet" featuring theMIND of THEMpeople (who also produced the cut) to set the news in stone. Since then though, they've kept things pretty much under wraps.... until now.
Leather Cords just broke work about a new event series called The Antidote that they'll be headlining the 1st go around. A hybrid of the public market, art fair, and concert, The Antidote puts on display the best emerging talents & visionaries in the Chicago art & tech scenes while creating a platform to support small businesses and independent creatives through dialogue, community, and commerce. Basically it's a completely new & different way to discover new artists, brands, non-profits, designers, apps & more all in one night out.
Also performing that night will be Stay Gold (Sir Devin Hudson x Bengfang), DJ 20 Minutes andthe up & comer Ki†. Rumor has it that there will also be a Dope.Boy.Magic pop-up shop as one of the dozen or so local vendors on display as well as a few surprises that The Antidote team is keeping under wraps. On top of that, the flyer is too cool (and free drinks never sound bad). Check back for more details & updates leading up to the event.
The Antidote Presents: New (S)Cool featuring: Leather Corduroys, Stay Gold, DJ 20 Minutes & Kit.
Date: Saturday, September 14, 2013. 7PM-11PM

Ricky Dubs and SRNC Management, the Molemen drop "Chicago Sessions: Volume.1" a mixtape showcasing the best talent and the best music out in the city of Chicago at this moment. A great pickup to dive into different artists from the city of Chicago and to get familiar with the different talent that our great city has to offer. Chicago is at its peak in Hip-Hop with a boom of upstarts and veterans all making a name for themselves. Enjoy!
Save Money veterans Kami de Chukwu and Tokyo Shawn collaborate over this soulful Thelonius Martin production to create For The People. Expect the track to appear on New Kids on the Blog brought to you by Sandlot and Mostly Junk Food. Be on the lookout for more in what looks to be a monumental summer for Save Money.
Now comes Kami de Chukwu's second half of his Thanksgiving Eve releases, as part of the Savemoney Thanksgiving takeover. This release comes in the form of a track entitled "Savior," which is an early release off #LettersFromTheVilla, and features a smoothly eerie piano-backed beat by Ill, while Kami himself waxes poetic about people's great expectations for him. Tune up and in above and become one with the takeover. #SAVEMONEY
