Chore Boy [Pongo Album Release]
Chore Boy [Pongo Album Release]
Chore Boy is a Chicago rapper, singer & curator with a penchant for freestyle lyricism & prolific output. Chore Boy has emerged in recent years as a driving force behind Chicago creative collective #BelovedGang, an association of 250+ musicians, comedians, and artists performing, creating, & orchestrating productions across the city. Chores has dropped 13 projects within the past two years (solo EPs, mixtapes, & collaborative works), freestyed for 12 hours consecutively over Facebook livestream, and played a gamut of stages & DIY basements - he now sets his sights on his biggest release yet - Pongo, vol. 1; out March 22 on all streaming platforms.

Pongo is a wall-to-wall Chicago affair, with features from the likes of Glitter Moneyyy, Jovan Landry, Chris Redd, Vagabond Maurice; and production by Brad Kemp, Groovebox, GreediPhresh & Sani. The album finds Chore Boy flexing between ear-sticky hooks and an array of flows & cadences designed to put his abilities on full display. The Chicago MC will be releasing a song per week ahead of Pongo's arrival on his soundcloud page, with several already available to stream.

Chore Boy can also be seen around town as the frontman for psychedelic hip-hop band PUICTK, currently tracking their debut album for a Spring release.

Marko Stat$
Marko Stat$
Marko Stat$ is a Chicago native, raised and well-respected in the Uptown neighborhood. When Marko Stat$ first began, he said he never thought in a million years that he'd be pursing a career in music. His father was insistent on education and he urged Marko to follow his footsteps. However, his destiny was set when his childhood babysitter introduced him to Hip-Hop. She had an enormous collection of rap CDs and introduced him to influential artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Nas, and 50 Cent. Marko Stat$ started writing my own raps in fifth grade but shortly quit due to a lack of confidence and support. In High-school, he managed to pick the pen back up and pursue rap. Experiencing hardship after his mother passing, Hip-hop has gave him an outlet to speak his mind and gather his thoughts. Though his father still hated hip-hop for its excessive use of foul language and he never allowed him to play it around the house, Marko Stat$ managed to develop a deep love for the art and create it into something of his own. Marko has performed in Chicago, Atlanta, Philadelphia & Austin,Texas for SXSW.
