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.


Chuck Inglish f/ Sulaiman & DJ Izzo “Keith Sweat”

The raw hip hop keeps comin’ from Chuck Inglish as he revisits this “Droptops” Mixtape x “Easily” EP for the new video to the standout “Keith Sweat”. If the beat doesn’t somehow reel you in (it’s superb), then Chuck, flanked by Sulaiman, DJ Izzo, and all of the #TreatedCrew making a cameo, will certainly do the trick. Loving the dominant black and white visuals with the dose of color mixed in by Elevator behind the lens. Enjoy.

Vic Spencer “Feast Mode” f/ Henny B & Sulaiman

Vic Spencer has to be one of the hungriest Chicago artists, dude is always working. Today he enlists Henny B and Disappointed bandmate Sulaiman on “Feast Mode”. As for Spencer, he is in the process of putting out two projects Just Put This Sh*t Out! & Women’s Bathroom that are expected to be dropping soon. More on Vic’s forthcoming releases below.

While Vic Spencer is mixing Women’s Bathroom, he orchestrated yet another mixtape ‘Just Put this Shit OUT!’ and the first single served is Feastmode that features Deadly Venom Henny B & Disappointed brother-in-rhyme Sulaiman. If you ever downloaded anything from Spencer’s soundcloud page, you will see that it says Just Put the Shit OUT! in the Album column in your Media Player(s). Now Spencer recorded and released many records this way, but he said it will be all unreleased music, rapping over rare loops from the 90s-current.

“I never call my albums “mixtapes”, Spencer says aggressively. “All of my projects are ALBUMS except for Vic Greenthumbs, that was my 1st mixtape. Now Just Put this Shit OUT! is my 2nd mixtape, which is coming soon. THIS is how you make a mixtape.”

Just Put this Shit OUT! will also feature Free, Cocky the God, Gzus Piece, Runway Bella, KeVon, Alex P. Keaton & D. Brash. All new music? Looking forward to eat.
