In a little less than a year of operating as an official unit, OnGaud has made a name for themselves in the "new" Chicago hip-hop scene, providing soulful, jazzy, yet ratchet backdrops for artists like Mick Jenkins, Savemoney's Vic Mensa and Nico Segal of the now defunct Kids These Days, Jean Deaux, Kembe X and more. Rapper/Producer Solar Five, BES & MastadonTheJBG present an assortment of instrumentals that set the perfect mood for an afternoon chill session, and hopefully provide inspiration to aspiring rappers and producers alike. Look for the collective to continue to make noise in Chicago and beyond...On Gaud my n!gga.
Fun Fact: The voice behind their producer tag is none other than Vic Mensa.
SaveMoney is literally everywhere. If you haven't seen the sticker or the graffiti tag somewhere around the city, you've probably seen them all over the country or all over the INNANET. It seems like the takeover isn't showing any signs of slowing down as the team releases something almost every week. Today, Dally Auston & Joey Purple team up over an eerie OnGaud produced track. Both artists do their thing, and shouts out to OnGaud who are also plotting their own takeover with recent hits for other SaveMoney artists as well as other local Chicago emcees.
Mick Jenkins drops Trees & Truths for the fans today and it features a lot of Chicago's emerging stars and producers. Even on his own, Mick brings his Southside perspective and mellow flow to present a solid effort that serves as an introduction to those who don't know of him. Soon you'll understand. Backed by features from Saba, NoName Gypsy, SolarFive and Jean Deaux; and not to mention a bevy of production from up-and-coming production crew OnGaud. "Talkin truth, betta bring the tree"
