After what happened to Young Buck a few years back, most rappers aren’t about to risk walking around the ‘hood with a G-Unit Spinner Chain around their neck. But Alex Wiley ain’t “most rappers.” On the latest single off his recently-released Closed Sessions debut, the emcee announces, “Ain’t no n**ga finna take what’s mine,” and proceeds to put that assertion to the test, donning the titular piece of jewelry for a leisurely stroll through the streets of his native Chicago. Mashup artist The Hood Internet, Wiley’s co-headliner on this joint, backs Mr. Thug Angel‘s lyrical bombast with a high-energy beat sampled from Brooklyn indie/electronic duo Javelin‘s recent Hi Beams LP. Feeling it? You can find Spinner Chain, previous releases Earf**ked and Spaceship II and many more fresh cuts on Club Wiley, available now for free digital download.
