Count (of L.E.P.) - "I'm ILL" [Snippet] Here's the first official leak from DJ MoonDawg's Monstaz of the Midway Vol. 3: C[r]ook County , hosted by L.E.P. The track features a few bars from the Bogus Boys own, Count, and you can expect the mixtape to surface later this month. The floating Blagojevich heads in the background were also a nice touch. I'm just sayin... Count (of L.E.P.) - "Im ILL" [Snippet]

Video: The Making of Mikkey Halsted's "Hello" (Prod. by Don Cannon) Here ChiGroundTV catches up with Mikkey Halsted at Soundscape Studios hard at work on "Hello", the Don Cannon (* Cannon* )-produced track from Chicago: The Photo Album. This song is most definitely a monster. It appears that Mikk has either moved in to Soundscape or has just leased the whole place out as every video I've seen of him recently has taken place there. Come to think of it, the last two times I've seen [...]

"And you can ask George or Regina , the whole West Side I explored with the Beama" As the quest for the whereabouts of Killa Cam heats up, we find Cam in an unsuspecting city, filming the latest of his four (yes, four) upcoming videos, the first of which dropped yesterday.

Young Offishal - "Off the Chain" (Prod. by B. King) This was one of the last known productions from Chicago producer B. King who was tragically murdered last week in a Chicago nightclub. Although, I was unfamiliar with his work, the outpour of emotional emails, comments and dedications I received were overwhelming, and he obviously touched many people in his short life. I wanted to post this song as a tribute and to also expose his production to a new audience, who may have been as in the dark as I was. R.I.P. [...]
