The only reason I found out about this song is because Chance posted about it on his Twitter because Noname Gypsy is also from Chicago and was in one of his songs. I heard this song and began to look into some of her stuff and recommend you to do. Noname gypsy is definitely one of the stronger rappers of the scarce amount female MC's.
True 2 Life Music is a Brooklyn rap group that I honestly don't know much about, but their mixtape Black Gods Never Die was unexpectedly impressive.

I really wanted an excuse to post about Kendrick and "Cartoon & Cereal" is it. This song came out after Section.80 but wasn't on good kid, m.A.A.d city, so it fell in between the cracks and a lot of people never found it. The song landed #2 on Complex's 50 best songs of 2012.
"I Said Hey" isn't one of those songs where he tackles controversial issues (check "White Privilege", "Wing$", "Otherside"), but it remains my favorite Macklemore song.
I thought I'd start my first blog post out with my favorite artist: Chance The Rapper. If you haven't downloaded the Acid Rap mixtape yet, do it now.
