Once upon a time there was a Chicago music conglomerate known as Kon-Man Productions, which was represented by Hustle, a marketing and promotions company run by Don Crowley and John "Monopoly" Johnson. At the top of the Kon-Man productions pyramid, was a up-and-coming rapper/producer by the name of Kanye West. Kanye had recruited some of Chicago's top talent to join him on his road to riches and quest for stardom. Producers such as Boogz, Arrowstar and Brian "All Day" Miller helped him on the production side, while emcees such as GLC, Mikkey, Rhymefest, Timmy G, Miss Criss, Shayla G and Really Doe held [...]

*Title reads in order of appearance Remember this track? The Chicago All-Star posse cut, "Where Ya From", featuring 10 of the Go's finest on one track? The 8-minute ode where each emcee goes bar for bar and tries to outshine the next? Yeah, that one. It was serviced to radio back in early January, but then it kind of came and went without a trace. Well, I'm here to resurrect thee. Dame Kash and the Associates put this track together, but never gave it the internet treatment. And, I know a lot of people didn't get to hear it, especially [...]

It's official. The name of the Chicago supergroup featuring Mikkey Halsted, Rhymefest, Juice & Twone Gabz will be Blaxploitation. Or BLX. The tentative name of their debut album, which they've already recorded a handful of songs for is The DuSable Museum . Blaxploitation will be holding their first official concert at Reggie's on June 17th, at Mikkey's Beat Battle,where they'll be playing never-before-heard music prior to the regularly scheduled producer showcase. Says Mikk I am pleased to announce that this month's special guests will be myself along with my [...]
Wayne MT, the man behind Upside of Down News, dropped by the set of Paypa of Project Mayhem and Mikkey Halsted's video for "So Mean" and held an impromptu interview with all parties involved. I've heard the video is about done and from the chatter bubbling, it's shaping up very nicely. Look for that to drop soon. But beforehand, get acquainted with the people behind the song. It's mean and vicious. Download: Paypa feat. Mikkey Halsted - So Mean
Last night at Reggie's, Mikkey Halsted and Omen had a free concert courtesy of Ford and their new (?) whip the Ford Fiesta. Mikk closed out the show and during his set he performed his Lupe-assisted track "You're Gone" - which is one of my favorite Halsted records. Unfortunately, you're gonna have to wait until the Photo Album until you'll get a taste of the whole thing. Heck, I'm still waiting on the D ark Room. Where ya at, Mikk? Feed the fans... Sidenote: I see Mr. Halsted rocking [...]
Produced by Tye Hill of The Produktionix. This man has been on a ROLL lately. Tye has even more work on deck with Project Mayhem, Mikey Rocks, Slum Village, Cappadonna, Big Pooh, Dwele and more. This track is to be featured on Lid's upcoming album, which should be dropping shortly. But back to the song, you know if Lid and Halsted are on a track together it's gonna be a problem. I think we've gotta give Mikk the crown for features thus far in 2010. Dude is everywhere. Lid Law feat. Mikkey Halsted - Gangsta [...]
