UG Vavy’s “Back to Ballin” is our Soundcloud find of the week


“Like single mothers I need a ring.”

Word to Alex Wiley for reposting this to his Soundcloud because otherwise I’m not sure I would have found out about UG Vavey. The Chicago rapper’s Soundcloud is full of potential hits and “Back to Ballin” is no exception. Chicago has the highest concentration of quality music, specifically hip-hop/rap, out of anywhere else in the country. It’s easy to get caught up in Mick Jenkins, Vic Mensa and Chance the Rapper’s music but the lesser known artists are where the real magic is happening. Be on the lookout for more from him in the future and check out “Back to Ballin” below.

Jacques Greene’s remix of Frank Ocean’s “White Ferrari” is worth a listen


Jacques Greene has loved Frank Ocean’s Blond ever since it dropped. The producer said that   Blond has “been fucking me up and saving me in equal measure since it came out.” In a sort of tribute to Frank and the power of his music, Greene remixes one of the album’s standout tracks “White Ferrari.” The remix takes on a more lighthearted, dance track sound that plays out better than one would expect. Give it a listen below.
