From Twista to Lupe, Chicago is currently home to some of the best lyricists in the game, and looking to add to that considerable roster of elite rappers is Chicago’s very own CHI-ILL. A heavyweight MC in the mold of Big Pun, CHI-ILL takes a club-ready beat from producer O-Zone and flips it into a grinding anthem for his DJBooth premiere, Ready to Go. Declaring that no one will stop him from pursuing his dreams until fate takes away his last breath, on Ready to Go CHI-ILL shows that he has the potential to make Chi-Town proud on the national stage. Supporters of CHI-ILL’s blend of street/club/conscious hip-hop can pick up his upcoming album The Last Chance Lounge, due out this October.
