In 2007, Chicago rap icon Twista announced that he was launching his own label, Get Money Gang Ent.; in addition to himself and his Speedknot Mobstaz, GMG would become the label home of several more rising stars from the Windy City. One of these up-and-coming rappers goes by the name of Skooda Chose; previously featured on the Mobstaz’ Money To Blow, as well as Godzilla and U Feelin’ Me off the label’s Who’$ Got Next compilation album, he’s ready to break out this summer with his own debut album, Skooda Chose: The Heir Up There. The first single, Loungin’, is a laid-back jam with an old-school vibe. Over Blended Beats’ percussion-heavy boardwork, Skooda brushes off the haters that surround him. Featuring a closing verse by Twista himself and a catchy hook by Mikey Rocks (of The Cool Kids), Loungin’ is already developing into a Chi-Town anthem (a video shoot just took place this past weekend); let’s see if it has what it takes to chill out at the top of playlists nationwide.
