Black Lung comes from the Rockford #9 Borgata Mob squad and gets trill on Dope Money. Self explanatory.

Que Billah must be for sure Chicago’s most slept on MC that I know of. He rocked Congress Theatre two years in a row with WU Tang. He drops dope ass videos. He moved 30,000 mixtapes in two years.

Watch him play amazing music in a more intimate setting tonight.(depending on when …

R&B icon, Bilal, serves as featured vocalist for the Gary Bartz Project, and for this special night only, soul sensation and 2006 RBMA Participant, Aloe Blacc, will join them on stage.
