As mentioned earlier, everyone’s favorite mob mentality rapper Cezar, placed two new songs in rotation to solidify the end of his hiatus. One was the ode to the late Tupac Shakur and the other is a leak off of his upcoming project, Free Dope. The leak is entitled “Lion” and it is produced by Nation Noise. The record falls on the shorter end of the spectrum lengthwise.
Bad Boyyyy. Bad Boyyyy. Come out and playyyyyy. Take that. Take that. The B.E.T. Awards have come and gone for another year. There were some highs and lows, but one of my favorite highlights was the Bad Boy 20 year reunion. Complete with a few of my favorite gems, Puff Daddy (or whatever he goes by today) sure knows how to put on a show. Puff, Ma$e, The Lox, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, and 112 gave the award ceremony a Hip-Hop nostalgic feel. Especially with Lil Kim doing her iconic squat pose, which for a minute, made us forget she’s been cut more times than a deck of cards at a casino. The only problem with the set was, where was the rest of the roster? They don’t have weekends off? There were no minutes on their phones? Or is it because Diddy still hasn’t paid them?
Growing up, every time I learned something new in school I would run home and tell my mom. I would get so excited that I would jumble up the information I was passing on to her. This would cause a bit of confusion, because the facts wouldn’t add up. Fast forward to Lupe Fiasco’s letter to White Supremacy. A bunch of jumbled up facts and conspiracy theories that makes no sense. If my English or History teacher would’ve seen this letter, they would’ve told Lupe to attend Summer school. But hey I’ll give Lupe an A for effort but that’s as far as my niceness goes.
Summer is a pretty big deal here in the 414. It’s a time for all types of festivals, fairs, concerts, and much more. One of the biggest of said ventures being Summerfest. Summerfest is regarded as one of the biggest music festivals in the world. It hosts performers of all kinds from mainstream to indie on it’s numerous versatile stages. And music lovers from all walks of life come right along with them. So it’s definitely any up-and-coming artist’s dream gig. This year a couple of The Illixer‘s favorite local talents will get their chance to shine at the big gala.
