Keepin' Up With The Chiraqis

Posted by: Blake Solomon (02/20/14)
If you're looking for something to pass the time this afternoon, Noisey has been posting webisodes about the Chicago rap scene, titled "Welcome To Chiraq." Part 5 of the 8 part series features the SaveMoney crew (Chance The Rapper, Vic Mensa). Check out all of the episodes on Noisey, or head to the replies. Fair warning: there is language and some drug use, so be cautious if you work for, like, an accounting firm or something.

Anyone who's interested in the plight of Chicago should really try to keep up with some of this music, DJ moondawg just put out a bizarre tape of "bop" that takes drill and frenzies it into something like a skipping happiness. Very weird

If you want to check out some of the Save Money artists, start here. Pretty cool mixtape. I highly suggest them.

As a Chicago resident I hate the term "chiraq" and people need to stop using it.

Yeah, seriously. My friend's getting heavy into this whole scene, and he's considering using that interest to pursue some sort of masters in sociology that deals with intercity violence/struggle.


this interviewer is the biggest nerd. I was told he looks like me; I don't know how I'd act in southside chicago though

Love Chance, Vic and the rest of SaveMoney. Glad to hear Vic call out the use of "Chriaq". Hopefully in the future Vice doesn't use the name.
