CAKEaters TV and Nick Astro have been doing a freestyle series that has showcased the likes of Saba, Legit, Nick Astro, Auggie the 9th, and ShowYouSuck. The final piece to the series is a cipher that comprises of verses from all contributing members of the series over Nas’ “Thief” instrumental. The series has been a breath of fresh air, bringing together and shedding light on artists that are illustrating why they should be considered the city’s elite emcees. Let us hope for more parts of this series can come to fruition in the future.
Saba and Born Ready Productions link up for the second official single off of Saba’s upcoming project “Comfort Zone” that is slated to be dropping later this Spring.
CAKEaters TV, founded by Chicago emcee Nick Astro has brought to fruition the “Black Canvas” series, an incredible freestyle series that highlights Chicago artists under the radar. The five part series has highlighted Pivot Gang member Saba, Legit, and LOD members Nick Astro, Auggie The 9th, and ShowYouSuck. The freestyle series has allowed the showcased artists to truly illustrate their lyrical prowess and we hope we can continue to see more of these videos in the future from more artists flying under the radar of our city’s lyrical elite.
