BBU, the four-man Chicago-based group of rappers Jasson Perez, Epic, Illekt, and DJ Esquire, is excited to release their new single, "The Hood." The track, featuring GLC and produced by Classick, is taken from BBU's forthcoming bell hooks mixtape, presented by Mad Decent and mixed by DJ Benzi, which will be released February 14th via Mishka Records.
While "The Hood," doesn't embody the same Juke-inspired sound of previous singles, the track continues the group's knack for blending the unexpected, bringing together the Windy City's old and new guard. "GLC is the homie, and a legend in Chicago hip-hop," says Epic. "We feel blessed to be on a track with him," adds Jasson, noting that GLC's unique brand of "ism" is a perfect fit for the song. "But really, it's about community, about building a movement."

We introduced Redman protege Dollarmentary last week with his Vinny Idol produced "I'm a Bullet" featuring the legendary General Steele. This time around, he grabs yet another Vinny Idol beat and yet another hip-hop legend for "Rap Professors" -- Treach of Naughty by Nature.
Once again Drumma Boys strikes with straight heat rocks. He's back with his brand new single "Levi Jeans" which he obviously produced and which also features Rocko and 2Chainz. Drumma gave this record to a few select people for feedback and everybody thought it was outta here so it's only right that Future Star lays that stamp on it and we blast it out.

"We're originators over here; they're followers!" exclaims Tajai at the beginning of the video for Pep Love's "Can't Nobody Do It Like Us," the latest single from his forthcoming album Rigmarole, which will be released March 6th. For Pep, one of the founding members of the legendary Hieroglyphics, being an originator is as much of a statement about his past as his present, as he and the rest of his Hiero crew continue to be trailblazers and trendsetters for independent hip-hop artists.
