Each week the These Days staff comes across great music from Chicago artists that we could not provide individual features for. In an effort to keep our readers up to date with more of our recent favorites, the Round Up segment provides quick summaries and additional noteworthy content. Check out our latest picks below and feel free to submit a comment if you feel we missed something.
Chris Crack • "Gang"
Never expected to hear a bass drop on my mother’s favorite funk artist Bootsy Collin's song, but I stand corrected. Chris Crack’s self produced track "GanG" is “a whole lot of good things rolled into one” as Bootsy would say. New Deal Crew’s front man sure is an aficionado of sharp delivery and speedy production. Chris recently released another single "Foul On The Play" a couple days prior this. If you truly are gang, you’ll check these two out.
Dos Phendi • "Fire"
Insert fire emoji here. Dos Phendi is back with his new single Fire after dropping his 3 song Paper EP earlier this month. Assisted by Feo Mob’s in-house producer, Flight, Phendi brings us a slower but more vocal based jam than usual. Is it fuego? Most definitely, check out the stream above.
G Herbo • "Yea I Know"
If you’re trying to tell us G Herbo has been on for a hot minute, Yea We Know. G Herbo brings us a new video fort "Yea I Know", complete with penthouse stunting and money band phones. If you don’t think G Herbo is killing the game right now, this man clearly just sparked a blunt with a hundred-dollar bill so your opinion probably is irrelevant to him. Be sure to catch G Herbo alongside Pusha T at the Vic Theatre on April 5th.
TLNTD • "Fwiendz"
TLNTD goes in-and-out between rapping and harmonizing with auto-tune on “Fwiendz”. His multiple deliveries on this track matche well with the nature of the production. “Fwiendz” is definitely a dope follow-up to TLNTD’s last single; “Stylin”. TLNTD’s style is unique to the city and it should interesting to hear his versatility throughout an entire project.
Toni Romiti • "Imma Dog Too"
Toni Romiti has no problem admitting her wrongs on this new tune but she wants it to be known that her wrongs come from being wronged. Between this new track and her single “Broke Up With You” from late last year, it’s safe to say Romiti has a lot to get off her chest on her upcoming debut project.
