@IamShizzie is getting ready to release another project titled "#RedInk". The 11 track project with features from artist like "S.B The Real Souljaboy", Matinee Grizz, LeeBoy, Stunt City & many more! The young up and coming artist from Boston, Shizzie decided to name his project "#Redink" for two reasons.
First, it is his favorite color, but second and more importantly he views himself as the correction to what is wrong with music today. Every bar spit was written as if he wrote a final essay in red. Being heavily influenced by West Coast sounds, Shizzie decided to bring out West Coast style production for this album for his East Coast delivary. "#Redink" will be released on February 1st and is sure to be a classic as well as a trending topic!

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."
