Im particularly excited about this project considering I’ve been following Astonish since his AstonishinglyODD Project and now we get the follow up to that project. Astonish delivers his latest masterpiece and what I believe will be a project that turns heads with his “The Who Tape” project that boasts production by Pivot Gang’s Saba, Born Ready Productions, Slot-A, Ikon, among features from Navarro, John Walt, Lungz, and others. For those not familiar with Astonish, this new project is a reminder of why he’s one of the who’s who to listen to in Chicago Hip-Hop.
After much anticipation we finally get the debut project of Ikon. The “Private Stock” project is a 12 track project comprised of an eclectic mix of instrumentals and featuring phenomenal features from spoken word artists Malcolm London, Pivot Gang, Saba, MFN Melo, Navarro, Nick Astro, ASA’s Reelo & Spazz, Astonish, Jarred AG, Noname Gypsy, Trell Love, Murph Watkins, among many others. To fully comprehend what went into the creation of the project watch the visual below.
Chicago spitters Astonish and Navarro (formerly Scheme) illustrate just how they’ve become masters of their own fate in “I Wonder”, a record that reinforces the hustle and dedication that these emcees have to their craft as well as the responsibility they uphold to their families, friends, and followers.
Molemen/SRNC emcee Astonish is gearing up for his latest project and enlists Pivot Gang member John Walt on “Oh My God”. The IKON produced track is just one of many great cuts we can expect from Astonish’s forthcoming To Whom It May Concern project.
We get another dope release by Chicago upstart G Ville as he enlists SRNC/Molemen member Astonish on “Love Style”, a feel good production by Pivot Gang member Saba.
