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.
Chicago producer IKON recently released his debut project Private Stock, filled with an eclectic mix of production. The project has not only been a great surprise for our music scene but also showcases some of Chicago’s best upcoming artists. The first official visual from the Private Stock project is “Thin Air”, and features Trell Love and G. Alexander.
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.
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 yet another dope release off IKON’s forthcoming project Private Stock EP, in this single we get a feature from Jarred A.G. in “Cheating Death”.
