It's a big day for rising Chicago rap artist ShowYouSuck as he drops his first official EP on iTunes today via Closed Sessions.
It's been amazing to see his fanbase continue to grow on the strength of his humorous and down-to-earth personality that's personified in the fresh beats and rhymes. Here's perhaps Show's most complete project to date, which you can stream in its entirety below before you purchase.
Start with a *Tibs Fav. that's been growing on me: the J. Arthur (of theWHOevers)-produced "80s Boobs".
ShowYouSuck continues his tribute to all 80s culture through his second single, "Make-Out King". The Javelin & The Hood Internet produced track is a hybrid styled Hip-Hop track possessing elements of both 80s pop and dub beats. It's almost as if one was warped 30 years back to an era with so much pop-culture contributions, yet it's a modern day rendition to showcase why ShowYouSuck is a musical genius. "Make-Out King" will be a part of ShowYouSuck's upcoming Dude Bro EP that will be dropping November 26. The EP also features production from Mike Jaxx, Peter Cottontale, and J. Arthur, as well collaborations with P.O.S. of DoomTree and NYC's UnStoppable Death Machines.
I had ShowYouSuck and Auggie The 9th swing by to Radio DePaul at DePaul University for a fun conversation around their music and we definitely had a phenomenal time. The two most important segments on the show were the "Product of The Go" and "Spectacular Vernacular". In "Product of The Go", a segment inspired by Retrospect's "Can I" we quizzed the guys on their knowledge of Chicago by reciting artist verses and asking the guys whether or not the lyrics belonged to a Chicago emcee. Spectacular Vernacular, a segment inspired by theWhoevers, was a segment where we had the guys freestyle using submitted words to display their uncanny ability to reinforce strong vocabulary words within their verses.
The show was phenomenal from various perspectives. For one, we got to give both ShowYouSuck and Auggie The 9th a platform to expose their music but also used this medium as a way to create conversation around the importance of their music to the Chicago landscape. The second important thing about this encounter was that it was hilarious. We exposed both the guys to a website called therapboard.com , which has the most infamous ad-libs in Hip-Hop history, which they in turn used throughout the duration of the show.
ShowYouSuck releases DudeBro on November 26th. Auggie The 9th releases GAWS in December. Before the release of both projects they will be having a show on the 21st of November, which you should all go and support as they'd be playing a majority of their upcoming projects at their upcoming venue. Hope you enjoy the audio of the show as well as the pictures and vines collected throughout the duration of the show.

"80's Boobs" is the first single from ShowYouSuck's forthcoming EP, Dude Bro. Dedicated to his favorite movie-starlets of the 80's, "80's Boobs" is a laidback and vibe heavy record that showcases a new approach from ShowYouSuck. The song is produced by J. Arthur of theWHOevers, and sets the table for ShowYouSuck's EP.
Dude Bro is ShowYouSuck's official debut EP, and will be released 11/26/13 via Closed Sessions. The EP features production from Javelin and The Hood Internet, Peter Cottontale, Mike Jaxx, Big Cats, and features from P.O.S. and UnStoppable Death Machines.
Ha! Only Show can pull this off. I love the bouncy beat from J. Arthur and this one's a fun, infectious mood-changer to certainly give a look at it today.
Also worth a listen: ShowYouSuck & Auggie The 9th will be joining our own 5ABIOMatic as his weekly guests on DePaul Radio today from 3-5p. Stream it online at radio.depaul.edu.
Quite the humorous cover art to reel ya in by Chicago's ShowYouSuck, huh? His quick-hitting trio of remixes of Toro Y Moi will have you stay. I especially like the "Cola" and "Never Matter" remixes, with Show adding some much needed rap on the latter. Natural mix between the two artists here so give it all a press of the play button below and/or download button above.
