Pick Three: Single, Video, EP

The end of September rolls in today with October right around the corner. Its that time of the month where CCHH gives our three picks from the month, that may have ended up on the playlist, stood out, thought was dope, etc. Sticking to what has been posted on the Chicityhiphop.net, its been a pretty good month of music releases so check out the difficult choices below.

Read in full below.

Gittaa Thomas - Royalty (EP)
Can't remember where I stumbled across his music, but every since then he's kept the ears interested. With a distinct voice and styled flow, we've seen and heard, from Gittaa Thomas, some of what can be called a recurring theme or concept in the songs and track art, of luxury. Through his latest project release he aims to usher in his music as "Royalty". Holding five tracks the EP kicks off with the perfectly sampled Cee Lo vocals on "Transform", produced by Nomads. With a strong introduction, follows with the Saba and Mike Teague "Alaskan" and the very smooth record "Ray Charles" with Weasel Sims. A definite favorite is track number four titled "Wilderness", which hold a tone of motivation, a song worth the listen when getting in grind mode. This short EP holds a steady pace of great sounds with a good five track fit, where each track could have held it own as a single release.

Sterling Hayes - A Minute 
SaveMoney's youngin' in charge looks to take things to new heights with a new project called "BIGshorty". A song that put listeners in clear turn up mindset is his single release called "A Minute". A clear cut, straight to the point, aggressively delivered, repetitive song, that let's us know it doesn't take long for things to go right or wrong for you. Produced by Spanish Diego, who I think use to go by COLDeSACK, Sterling provides a track that simply said, is meant for us to act a fool to, over a beat building, deep bass, speaker kicking sounds. With his recent Joey Purp featured remix of "Father's Son" it going to be interesting to hear what he does with the EP.

King Louie - Live and Die In Chicago (Video)
One of the most consistent to continue to keep his voice heard from the 2012's hundreds of list that featured upcoming Chicago artist, is King Louie. Not just out of the Eastside drill movement but in Chicago period, he's become a much talked about artist. His latest visual for the song "Live and Die In Chicago" brought to the forefront the city called Chi-Town, his experiences and influences. Bringing out his fans and resident of the city of Chicago, in this DGainz directed video, the song itself touches slight on the city's effect on the rest of the country, as well as the danger presented. With all the spots featured this was the perfect visual for the content Louie provided, for a hood anthem.

Written by Curtis, and I'm sticking to it.
