Chicago keeps creating it. With so much diverse talent poppin’ up from the ‘Go, the city’s finally getting the shine that its deserved for a long time. And while many people initially think drill and violence, there’s more going on that taps into the city’s soulful history while adding new twists to the mix.
New Deal Crew’s Chris Crack has been one of my favs over recent months with his endless flows, cocky attitude and twisted point of view. Here, he’s back with Kickin It Wit TW in which he adopts the alternate persona of Trill Withers, sort of how Reggie Noble would set aside Redman and let Funk Doctor Spock run things. For Crack, it works well as it coincides with the psychedelic,’70s funk production – all handled by TMTHY TRTL – that drives the project.
