There's a vast well of creative music coming from the Windy City that fills us with hope for the future of hip-hop. We don't know how Chicago is mass-producing so many talented artists, but we love it. XVRHLDY is the latest prospect from Kanye's hometown that deserves your ear. His strong, solo Booth debut entitled, Black Alabaster, is assisted by Freestyle Series alum and Booth favorite Saba and the astounding NoName Gypsy - two more shining stars that have been glowing brightly in the Chi-underground. All three emcees prove their prowess over Odd Couple's dreamy soundscape. Don't be surprise if you discover your new favorite rapper after hearing this four minute ear blessing.
