Respect the Midwest

8 Artists unified to form 1 voice that commands RESPECT.

Here’s the track of the weekend. And one that is certainly unlike anything you’ve heard recently. 8 Midwest lyricists come together via Chicago producer/DJ J-Rell and rhyme over continuous, high-energy live drums and electric guitar. This backdrop allows for all the emcees to go in with an infectious intensity. As a result, you got your classic bar for bar, rapper after rapper, rawness that is hard not to appreciate. Hard to pick a favorite verse from all of them because there really isn’t one rapper to discount. All did their thing on this entertaining track below.
