This past weekend I was invited out to Castro’s listening session at Classick Studios for his new mixtape “Welcome Home” hosted by DJ Honorz and DJ Wats. Castro brought the city out! All in support of the new mixtape. Some of your favorite Chicago artist and executives were in the building. Hustle Simmons hosted the event and the night was organized by SWANK PR. Castro played eight of his sixteen songs on “Welcome Home”, two were standouts for me. “Mackin” and “Me N My Money.” Both completely different songs. Castro showed a bit of his versatility on the tape. Its drill but he switched his sound up on certain tracks. “Mackin” for example takes on a dirty south purple sprite feel; while “Me N My Money” is all about the turn up and flexing. Both great songs in my book. Just look out for those two tracks once he drops the tape.. I guarantee you’ll agree. “Welcome Home” is honestly well rounded tape. Castro does his thing. He holds both the city and eastside down. KMSupports! Make sure you download “Welcome Home” dropping tomorrow on livemixtapes.com at 4pm!
Superfly-Funkadelic-While-Im-Riding-Muzik is the only way to describe Just Chris and his recent single “SuperflyFunkadelicWhileImRidingMusic”! This track is so smooth, JC definitely did his thing. Although he’s from Chicago he has a Cali vibe to him and it works. On this track JC rides the beat like a player. He completely vibes out and gently kills the beat. You can catch yourself placing this on repeat and reaching for your stash of that sticky green stuff. Press play and vibe out this new found gem. Just Chris is worth the listen and KMThinks supports. Go ahead and add this to your playlist of dope shxt. Thank me later.
Ace da Vinci finally drops my favorite song “Hands Up” and out of no where drops a visual featuring our beloved friend Niema and myself! This isn’t your typical video I must warn you. Creative vibes were flowing and out of no where a camera popped up! So this here is raw footage of true friends enjoying each others art and completely indulging in the talent of our friend! Luckily, you get to see me in rare form… having not a care in the world. Aside from the footage the song “Hands Up” is a beautiful piece of art it self. Ace teams up with Jamila Woods of M&O and they carry out this melodic song accapella embodying every essence of peace. Through out the song Ace and Jamila Woods encourages you to have faith in yourself and to put your hands up to “learn how to fly”. Just click play and be inspired. Salute to the homie Ace da Vinci! Take my word and don’t sleep on him; he has plenty of dope shxt dropping soon. Oh, peace and blessings to Niema on her journey in San Francisco, Cali. We love, miss and support you!

So recently, I was on Instagram and ran across a video of someone listening to this dope ass song. I was immediately intrigued. So of course I did a little searching and I ended up finding A$hGod’s iG and links to her music. I finally ran into the visual to “Grindin'” and I was impressed from A$hGod’s fashion sense to her laid back yet sassy approach to this record I just knew I had to share her music. That way you guys could experience what I experienced. “Grindin'” is a laid back but it has a little punch to it.. the hook goes “Grindin, nigha I’m Grindin’ oh!” something simple but something that everybody can relate too. Who out here isn’t grinding.? You can cut on this record to just ride down LSD and vibe if you wanted. It’s definitely something smooth to ride to. Not only is the song dope but the visual is nice too. A$h pulls out the Jeep riding with her girl, sipping on Hennessy, and hitting some of the Chi’s most popular designer stores. I’ll just leave the link below and let y’all see what I’m talking about but, #KMThinks that A$hGod is dope. I honestly want to hear more of her to see what else she brings to the table!
