Chicago never sleeps: Listen to IKON’s “Private Stock” tonight [Artists to keep an eye on]


IKON picked a bad time to drop off this tape. With Kendrick, Action Bronson and Earl all dropping albums in the last month a lot of music fell through the cracks or got looked over. Luckily, I took the time to listen to this from start to finish, twice. Thanks in part to the fact that Spazz and Reelo of ASA spammed my Twitter timeline with it when it released. So when I saw it on Soundcloud earlier today I decided to give it a listen. I’m very glad I did. After two complete run throughs I would recommend this tape to anyone who’s into music. IKON has an incredibly mature, confident flow. The tape is of the highest quality. From the album artwork, features, production and lyrics there’s no aspect of the project that makes me think something could have been done differently. Give this a listen tonight while you’re getting ready for your week of school or work, you won’t be disappointed.  Also, keep an eye out for more from IKON in the future.
