As life would have it, I was only able to spend a few months as a Chicago resident. At least it was during the summer though. The city was alive with culture, food, history, sports and the best mild sauce man could ever ask for. Not to mention, the Ralph Lauren store on Michigan Avenue still brings a lone tear to my eye. Had I still paid been paying my taxes in the Chi, Mikkey Halsted’s summertime ready “Linen” would find itself as apart of my daily routine. Hopefully the city gets behind this record since it personifies the joyful and nostalgic vibes any June, July or August can represent when foolishness isn’t involved. OG Chicago Blackhawk Twista caters his hurricane flow so the eye of his storm nestles warmly over Tha Bizness’ handcrafted harmony in case more of a selling point was needed.
Play this anywhere from Magnificent Mile to the impromptu block cookouts 55th and Prairie used to throw when I was there and it would fit right in. Chi-Town, support your own and cop the single on iTunes.[audio:http://uproxx.files.wordpress.com/2011/05/mikkey-halsted-twista-linen.mp3|titles=Mikkey Halsted & Twista – Linen]
