I've said it before and I'll say it again, Chicago's rap game is by far the best right now. Although the west coast's T.D.E. is the best group, the talent coming out of the Windy City is countless. Saba is probably in my top 5 though. I haven't been able to stop listening to his mixtape ComfortZone since it came out a month ago, but it wasn't until recently that I realized how much I love the 7th song on the album, "Scum." It's always stuck in my head and always puts me in a good mood. The unique rhythm and melody on the song is a perfect example of the innovative music coming out of Chicago and the most impressive part of it all is that Saba produced the track, along with many others on his fantastic mixtape.

King Green of the RDGLDGRN trio tries his hand at some solo work. Still rapping over unconventional, heavy instrumental beats, Green discusses his dreams and aspirations while sampling Office Space in "Nothing". Looking at his solo work it's clear to see why RDGLDGRN have been so successful thus far. Each member is incredibly talented and sound just as good on their own. Check out RDGLDGRN's new song "Cornbread."

Even if you don't know Jon Bellion is you're probably already a fan of him. Bellion has found his biggest successes as a songwriter in the past, including Eminem and Rihanna's megahit "The Monster", which just hit 200,000,000 views on Youtube. However, if you've been paying attention you'd know that Jon Bellion is not someone who will be kept in the background. Last year he came out with his spectacular mixtape The Separation with Visionary Music Group, the label that hosts Logic and QuESt. "Munny Right" is about the New York artist's journey to his recent success. On top of incredible lyrics (he's a songwriter first), he adds impressive vocals, a blend of pop and hip-hop, and some great production he did himself. Watch out, you'll be hearing "Munny Right" on the radio every day pretty soon.
