Last year’s Summer Smash was easily one of the best festivals of the year. With performances from A$AP Rocky, Lil Baby, Chance The Rapper, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Durk and many more, the Chicago festival, curated by Lyrical Lemonade’s Cole Bennett, was a can’t miss.

Building off their momentum from last year’s epic festival, this summer’s fest is just as impressive and organizers have just shared the official daily lineup with some brand new additions. Kicking things off on Friday, June 17th will be Wiz Khalifa, Trippie Redd, Lil Skies, Rico Nasty and headliner Lil Uzi Vert who will look to top his 2021 performance.

Saturday’s lineup is just as great, as Post Malone will deliver his first performance following the June 3rd release of his latest LP, “Twelve Carat Toothache”.  Hitting the stage before Posty will be Polo G, Ski Mask The Slump God, Bia and G Herbo to name a few.

Last but not least, on Sunday, Playboi Carti will headline alongside the festivals undercard like Oliver Tree, Lil Yachty, 2 Chainz and more.

Tickets are on sale now at the festival’s official website, with single day passes starting at under $100.

Fans have been patiently waiting for more music from GOOD Music rapper Big Sean, ever since 2015 LP Dark Sky Paradise. And while Sean treated fans with a collaborative EP with the lovely and talented Jhene Aiko, with Twenty88, earlier this year, Big Sean is back with his new record ‘Light It Up’. And even though Sean is one of the best feature rappers in the game right now, the Detroit native recruited the talents of 2 Chainz for the new record.

Don’t get too excited however. ‘Light It Up’ is part of the original soundtrack for Kevin Hart’s new film, “What Now?”, so it may be longer than we’d like until Sean blesses fans with a follow up to Dark Sky Paradise.

Stream ‘Light It Up’ here!

Amtrak and WGCI delivered last night, as they brought some of the biggest names in rap music to the 2016 Summer Jam. Despite a last minute cancellation from ‘My Wap’ rapper Fetty Wap, the Summer Jam brought a number memorable performances, from Desiigner, Young Jeezy, 2 Chainz, Migos, Plies, Famous Dex, Lil Durk and more, that the Windy City will not soon forget. With Plies for the ladies, Desiigner for the GOOD Music fans, T.I. for the old school rap heads, Migos and 2 Chainz for the crowd’s ATL fix, Jeezy for the marquee and Lil Durk, Katy Got Bandz and Famous Dex for their hometown, the Summer Jam had something and more for everyone in attendance.

While no single act stole the show, one of the night’s best moments came when 2 Chainz reached the end of his set time. Instead of playing by the rules and saying his goodbyes to Chicago, Tity Boi kicked down the LCD screen ticker that read 0:00, and performed until he felt that his set was actually over and dropped the mic before he stepped off stage. 2 Chainz raised the energy levels in the United Center, which set the tone for Jeezy’s headlining performance where he gave one hell of an introduction to Lil Durk, who joined the ‘Put On’ rapper on stage and helped cap off the night. This was definitely a Summer Jam for the ages!

Check out our photos from the 2016 WGCI Summer Jam below.

After years of inactivity and speculation on the highly anticipated collaborative album, Kanye West has finally released new music that will be heard on the followup to Kanye’s GOOD Music album Cruel Summer, similarly titled Cruel Winter. Kanye surprised many as he shared the news earlier this morning, moments before he paid a visit to Big Boy’s 92.3 to debut the track. Titled ‘Champion’, as confirmed by Travis Scott on Twitter, the new track is fire and star studded. ‘Champion’ features Kanye West, Gucci Mane, Big Sean, Yo Gotti, 2 Chainz, Quavo (Migos), Travis Scott and GOOD Music‘s newest signee, ‘Panda’ rapper Desiigner.

While Cruel Summer was met with mixed reviews, and expectedly wasn’t as complete as a solo album from Kanye, the album had a number of bangers, and if ‘Champion’ is any indication of what to expect from Cruel Winter, then this sequel will be no exception when it comes to stacked hits and perhaps it may be a step up from Cruel Summer.

Stream ‘Champion’ below.
