Vic Spencer “The Cost Of Victory” [Mixtape]

Chicago spitter Vic Spencer is out to make lyrical gems and that is exactly what he delivers in his latest 15-track masterpiece “The Cost Of Victory”. After an onslaught of singles, visuals, and twitter rap battle with Lupe Fiasco, we continue to get more reasons behind why Vic is one of Chicago’s most proficient lyricists. The projects features include Sean Price, Illa Ghee, and tag-team parter Sulaiman. Vic Spencer has won this war but the battle rages on as he continues to showcase results in this ‘Cost of VICtory”.

Doc Da Mindbenda “The Prescription Vol.1” [Mixtape]

Treated Crew beatsmith Doc Da Mindbenda has had a tremendous 2014 that comes to a conclusion with his recent released project “The Prescription Vol.1”, a project that captures some of Doc’s best tracks of the year and also includes some additional never before heard records. The project includes his work with Dally Auston, Sulaiman, Vic Spencer, Sean Price, Neon Pajamas, Mic Terror, YP, Keenan Coke, Monster Mike, as well as some GrindHouse remixes of some of his favorite records of this year.

YP ‘Backwood Jones’ [Mixtape]

My anticipation for this release was at an all time high several minutes ago. Now I’m several songs in and I don’t have one negative thing to say about YP‘s new collection, ‘Backwood Jones.’ It’s pretty much everything I was hoping for since YP played a few songs off the project for me at the beginning of July. There’s a little bit of everything on here for everybody. Songs to spark to, jam to, pound to. Songs to Spark, jam, and pound to all at once. Really, you can’t go wrong with giving this the stream or the download. YP is one of the most talented artists Chicago has and his work shows that.
