Praise the RAD God! ShowYouSuck has some of the best videos in the business and is making it perfectly clear with a FIVE VIDEO SERIES to his latest single “Gucci Mane”. Those are some cold moves from the LOD and Treated Crew member as he continues to showcase his handwork and dedication through these excellently executed visuals. A Gucci Mane salute from us, BURR! [Below are the first FOUR videos of the series]

Another strong Chicago release today comes from Neak with the new visual to one of his XIII standouts “Friends & Strangers”. I like this video, directed by longtime collaborator APJ Films, for its real look into the grind of an upcoming artist who has a family to support amidst the changing rap climate. The variety of scenes around the city add to the concept’s depth and this is all on top of the strong lyricism and technical display heard on the audio. Neak mixes in slick references like Twista’s “Overnight Celebrity” or the fallen MC Proof, both used not as punchlines but to add depth. The soulful jazzy production by Mulatto Patriot feels like this record should be juxtaposed to some late 80s Michael Jordan video too. As you can see, I approve of this one in all aspects. Easy *Tibs Fav. and one you should press play on above.
It’s always a lyrical affair when these three join forces and “AMILLIPLUS” is nothing new from Sincerely Yours, Slot-A, and Neak. I love the simple fact of feeling like a million… plus. That’s right, a million is not enough. Ha!
In all seriousness, all three Chicago emcees do their thing with the man who helms the track altogether: Sincerely Yours possessing my favorite verse. The ‘c’ alliteration, amongst more to come, is very slick. The video, directed by APJ Films, is a simple look at the three spittin’ their rhymes. For instance, you see Slot-A donning a nice throwback Cubs jersey.
All you need for a fun new video is ShowYouSuck and a green screen. The Chicago rapper linked up with APJ Films for some fun retro graphics, fitting for “All Wavy Everything” so give this surely entertaining new visual a press of the play button above.

The interestingly titled “Pyrex Religion” gets a simple visual where Skooda gives it a homey feel, as I’d imagine, just outside his block. A nice collab with APJ Films.
