Robust
Robust
A veteran of Chicago's burst in underground hip hop, Robust is known in the Chi town scene for his past collaborations with groups such as Scam Artists and The Molemen. His 2000 independent release "Freelance Gynecologist" got attention worldwide from fans and critics of dope punchlines and humorous rhymes. Soon Bigga would appear on projects like Sage Francis' "Still Sick Urine Trouble" & Qwel's debut "If It Ain't Been In A Pawn Shop, Then It Can't Play The Blues", where he showed his growth into a more serious lyricist.

After success with 7" single "Flibbertigibbit" (also on Meaty Ogre's recent "Leo vs. Pisces"), hip hop was definitely ready for Robigga to step up the game. Enter "Potholes In Our Molecules", the brand new full length on Galapagos4.

Things get very serious on this deep album, as Robust bares it all from the inside out, with his intricate flows & creative rhyme schemes intact. Of course he comes off with some humor, wit & straight rap savvy as well. The supremely crafted beats, handled mostly by Meaty Ogre & east coast producer Prolyphic, create a solid moody backdrop to keep your head stuck on nod. Dreas, Maker, Sun Spark & Bless also contribute heat to this 17 track album. Here's to life's flawless imperfections, flawlessly perfected as hip hop potholes.
Second City Citizens
Chicago's very own "Trifecta of Mic Wreckers," SCC hasn't slept much since voltroning during the Summer of 2010. Comprised of Rich Jones, Swords the Ronin and Troy Boy, they have performed relentlessly in the Midwest—playing notable shows with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Freddie Gibbs, Blueprint and the CunninLynguists as well as sets at the Chicago stop of the Vans Warped Tour and the North Coast Music Festival. Bringing high energy, candor, and their unique talents as MC's, it's not hard to see why their spirits are high heading into 2014.
