Plenty of artists have written songs about Chicago.  Common raps in Chi-City “The game need a makeover”.  Chicago sings in Street Player “Trouble was often in the air”.  Wesley Willis serenades in Rock and Roll McDonalds “Rock on Chicago”.

Enter BBU.  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.  Now that’s a mouthful – but what does it mean?  To be honest.. I’m not sure.  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.  Producer D-Wizz has the strongest track on the tape, ‘BB Who?’ with a cross-genre bmore feel.  The track is on the post, and if you want to check out the full mixtape you can access it here.
