Plenty of artists have written songs about Chicago. Â Common raps in Chi-City “The game need a makeover”. Â Chicago sings in Street Player “Trouble was often in the air”. Â Wesley Willis serenades in Rock and Roll McDonalds “Rock on Chicago”.
Enter BBU. Â These guys have been described by everyone from PMA to Pitchfork, and the Washington Post to the NY Times as raw, original, juke-filled, party-tailored, political, smartly-subversive, dancefloor-oriented hip-hop. Â Now that’s a mouthful – but what does it mean? Â To be honest.. I’m not sure. Â Their mostly sample based mixtape, Fear of a Clear Channel Planet, is all over the map with respect to genre, reaching to Michael Jackson, Justice, and even Aqua for inspiration. Â Producer D-Wizz has the strongest track on the tape, ‘BB Who?’ with a cross-genre bmore feel. Â The track is on the post, and if you want to check out the full mixtape you can access it here.[audio:BBU – BB Who (Prod. by D-Wizz).mp3]
