We can expect to hear this on his upcoming EP "Down Comes The Spaceman".

Today marks the first project we post from the artist known as Roosevelt The Titan. This also mark his first EP release, which is titled "I Hate Being High". If we're not mistaken, there was another project in the works or spoken of but there's no longer any mention of it. This could possibly be a reflection of his creative process taking him in different direction.
We've heard a number of song from Roosevelt in the past couple of years, gaining a small idea of who he is as a artist. Listening to him rap we are introduced to a artist who doesn't shy away from giving us his thoughts. He delivers lyrics that are plenty relatable with plenty passion, from his own perspective. For this new project he presents us with nine new track including the previously release "Bugatti". Noah Sims, GlassicProd, SendHelp, Pirooz, and Rose himself hold production credit. Stream and comment below.

Reflection is an important part of moving forward in your life, past a major event that took place. King Samson delves into recent events with the aim to shake off all negativity with the video to "Devil Is A Lie". He dropped this latest project "The Service", during the holiday season, where you hear this song and more. Watch the video below.
Earlier this month we were presented with a new project from Naybahood called "Dope Shit Only 2", a 15 track mixtape full of dope raps. The grind continues with a new video, demonstrating a daily routine which includes breakfast of Mary Jane and getting on his hustle, as he proclaims "Realest Nigga Left". Don't miss his latest mixtape and watch the video below.
If you follow Adam Joseph on social media, then you've followed updates about his upcoming project. He's been finishing an effort titled "Paradise", getting production from Xander. Adam and Xander have team up for two previous songs that we'll assume is these two delivering what this combination will bring, with songs like "Lowside" and "Old News". Today we post their latest song that opens with a great voice that's new to us, of Paige Porter. Combined with Adam's delivery, the soothing sounds of the saxophone, and the rhythm of the beat, "Time Travel" is created.
Kanye West is gearing up for the release of his upcoming album "SWISH" and there's been a few things that happen leading up to it. Back in 2014 there were rumors that Kanye had played the full album for a audience at a party. It was said that a small crowd of people were feeling it according to Theophilus London. But at the time there were no real track listing or evidence of this, not to say that he was lying, but we don't know what those people heard at that time, to what we've heard now.
He's ask not to be bothered saying "Don't ask me for anything till after I'm finished with my album" in December 25th through a tweet. Jump into January 2016, Kanye has been taking to Twitter a lot more lately, kinda bringing back GOOD Fridays, and dropping two new singles from the album, which were "Real Friends" and "No More Parties In LA".
There was actually a third single that was unofficially released, and presented to an audience at the Yeezy Season 2 Show, that this year ended up in a up and comer's hands called "Faded". This would become the song that we hear a fellow Chicago artist, Chi City, get a hold of that same beat.
The artist known as Chi City is not a new name to the CCHH blog, garnering a number of post on this site. Last year he dropped a EP titled "8", holding some pretty solid records, one in particular "My Drug Dealing Cousin". With a name such as 'Chi City' we can make the assumption that their is much love for the city in which he comes from. Like many others, he's someone with potential but has not yet reached the mass as of yet.
Looking at Chi's most recent release titled "Sorry Kanye", his rendition of Ye's "Faded", you definitely get the sense that this was a opportunity that he wasn't willing to pass up. From what we heard from Kanye's track, we get a auto tune filled song that his rumored to featured Post Malone and Ty Dolla $ign. Chi's version is a unapologetic apologetic track that grabs attention for things said. Is he a opportunist? Of course. But if we were to ask any artist coming up what would they have done with a Yeezy beat that's unreleased, their answer would be to 'jump on it'.
Chicityhiphop.net caught up with the artist Chi City to ask him a few things surrounding the song's release. Read below.

For this new track Lucki drops the "Eck$" and enlist SaveMoney's Joey Purp. These two team up for a track called "Deja Vu", with a strong sensation of doing this before, seeing her before, with production from Grimm Mob. Lucki brings the slowed style to fit the backdrop but so does Joey Purp, guess his name fits well for this one.
The production team The Justice League dropped a new project called "J.U.S.T.I.C.E. For All". One track featured was "No Problem", featuring Lupe Fiasco and Future. Lupe does most of the heavy lifting on this while Future drops line through.
