Here’s a clip from CNN’s ongoing documentary series Chicagoland which takes a look at the rise of Chance The Rapper. This segment focuses on Chance’s experiences growing up on the South Side and how the loss of his peers to violence, specifically the shooting death of his friend Kevin, have influenced his art. You can catch the full episode tonight on CNN at 9:00 pm, and I understand Fake Shore Drive will also be making an appearance.
During his visit to Arsenio last night, Russell was asked to comment on KiD CuDi’s recent call for an end to misogyny in Hip-Hop. I think they both make valid points, but obviously it’s a debate that goes deeper than a couple of thoughts on a late night talk show.

Well now, there are all sorts of new rules being written this week. Forbes today broke the news that Wu-Tang will only release 1 single solitary copy of their next project, The Wu – Once Upon A Time In Shaolin. So how eactly is that going to work you ask? Well the only existing copy of the LP will live in a custom engraved, silver and nickel display box (see above) made by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. The Clan will not release the album to the public through traditional channels, but instead hope to put the piece on exhibit at museums, art galleries and music festivals for fans to view and hear (for a fee, of course).
