[Video] Vic Mensa – Magic (Smoko Ono Remix)

Do you believe in “Magic?” If you’re a skeptic, then it might be time to hop in a time machine with Vic Mensa and Smoko Ono as they take a psychedelic trip back to the early 90’s in the visuals for this Chicago house inspired remix. Cutting out the verses completely from the Innanetape original, we’re instead left with a revitalized tune that’s dripping with entrancing melodies and infectious rhythms. Old school vibes are abound as well, as flush bright neons bombard the screen throughout the trippy visuals. Let the nostalgia take over as you peep the video below, and stay tuned for Smoko’s upcoming Slackin-N-Mackin EP, set to release later this year.

[Hip-Hop] Sir Michael Rocks – Can’t Hide It (ft. Rockie Fresh)

Sir Michael Rocks, a recent addition to Jet Life Recordings, teams up with fellow Chi-town native Rockie Fresh for the second single off his upcoming solo album. Sir Michael displays some of his high-energy, creative rhymes over an instrumental driven by classic strings and heavy percussion. The more relaxed flow of the young, skilled Rockie Fresh, a recent MMG signee, contrasts perfectly to that of the Cool Kid, while the production of J. Hill and iamLpeezy, also Chicago-based, ensures that the midwest sound shines through. Sir Michael’s Lap of Lux is set to drop on August 2nd and will kick off what should be a great month for music.
