It’s not news that Chicago has been providing as steady stream of hits as of late and today that trend continued as a pair of GBE affiliates found their way into the news cycle with a pair of releases.
Lil Reese dropped the video for his track, “Irrelevant”, an ironic label for an artist that seems to find himself in the spotlight often. The green smoke-tinged visual for the Young Chop-produced tune sees Reese, donning a Miami Heat jacket amongst the shadows over a urban background.
Likewise, Fredo Santana released the latest teaser for his upcoming project Walking Legend with “Fuck The Otherside,” a drill-lined anthem against a common foe that hears Santana rhyme “I done made a lot of money but I done lost a lot of guys” just days after reports of the death of cousin Blood Money, who was gunned down in Chicago’s West Englewood neighborhood.
The forte of the drill movement has been to essentially report on the situations in which these young men find themselves, these most recent releases are a continuance of that grim storytelling paired with frenetic drum patterns.
