Chicago-born and bred emcee SoulStice‘s musical career has taken him a long way from home (he’s currently based in Washington, D.C.), but don’t think for a second that he’s forgotten his roots—no matter where he goes, he’s simply taking Chi Worldwide. Originally featured on a mixtape by G.O.O.D. Music rapper GLC, this cut has been reworked for inclusion on SoulStice’s forthcoming Beyond Borders LP. Over SBe‘s wistfully nostalgic blend of chopped strings and glittering piano samples, SoulStice, GLC, and (newly added for this remix) Kidz in the Hall emcee Naledge each pay tribute to their hometown as they detail their respective journeys to musical success. Chi Worldwide is sure to earn a place of honor on locals’ summer playlists, but the blend of sincerity and swagger all three collaborators bring to the record make this a Windy City anthem listeners worldwide can enjoy. For more globally-appealing jams, grab a copy of SoulStice’s latest album, set to hit record stores and online retailers on the 23rd.
