Man, let’s hope that Jay Electronica’s sudden emergence into the public eye means that something new from him is on the way. For now we’re alright with listening to this remix of “Kingdom” with Common and Vince Staples. Check it out below.
This past weekend part of the Smooth Waves team was in Chicago to attend the first ever Aahh Music Fest and to chop it up with some of our favorite Chicago area rappers, Spazz, Reelo and Hyype. Saturday we had the chance to meet up with ASA and Hyype. We went down to the lake and shot a few pictures and chopped it up, talking about everything from shoes, jewelry and the Chicago music scene. Aahh Fest was a great success, Jay Electronica, Lil Herb, MC Lyte, Lil Mama, Lupe Fiasco, Jennifer Hudson, Common, Twista, DJ Wayne Williams and many others made appearances. The biggest act of the night though, was the surprise performer. Many people felt that it would be Kanye or Chance The Rapper. In the end, it turned out to be Kanye. He absolutely shut the place down. Check out some of the shots from the photo shoot and pictures and video of Aahh Fest below.

Easily the biggest part of the night. The crowd rapped along word for word with Kanye on every single song.
