As I stated in my previous blog post, there is always something going on in Chicago. It could be up to five events, I might be interested in, going on at once. This past weekend there was no shortage of events as I ended up covering two myself on the same night.
If you read my last post then you know I was at the Mack 11 listening party, immediately following I slid on Peter Jaysin and nem for his 4/20 Papers vs Backwoods shindig, powered by No Hesitation, Swank Pr, and The Right Now Tour.
It was definitely a “dope” event (inserts laughing emoji), a room filled with trees, smoke clouds, and Chicago’s movers and shakers. It was one of those cool kid parties, invitation only, you had to know the real n-- -- - to get in. It was a kickback style showcase with only three acts on the bill, kept them event chill but LiT at the right moments.
The acts were Flex (@100flex), Asa 2 Times (@asa2times), and Duffle Bag Buru (@dufflebagburu). I came in just in time to catch Flex doing his first song, this being my first time seeing him perform I was really impressed with his level of energy and crowd control. He and his hype men kept the crowd engaged for the whole performance, definitely an artist to watch. Next up on the bill and next up in the industry was Asa 2 Times. Joined by his All Cost brother Solo the Dweeb, Asa fired up like Johnny Storm from Fantastic 4.
Asa always coming with big energy, with the added hype from Solo they definitely kept the LiT fest going. Last but not least Duffle Bag Buru, a Lyrical Lemonade signee. Buru had mad rockstar vibes and kept the energy wavy throughout his performance. Can’t rate him on crowd control because the intermission kinda settled a pretty blazed crowd. Despite the fact I couldn’t gauge his ability to control a crowd, I still rocked with his stage presence, overall lived up to the hype.
4/20 was definitely one for the books, yall planning for next year yet? Asking for a friend.

A killer soundtrack combined with captivating car chases and astounding action makes for one fantastic film from director Edgar Wright (Shaun Of The Dead, Hot Fuzz). Break out the bell-bottoms and buckle up for 113 minutes of exhilarating excitement!
This cool crime story takes place in Atlanta, Georgia where Baby [yes, B-A-B-Y, Baby] acts as a getaway driver for local kingpin Doc (Kevin Spacey). The crew may alternate but the driver is always the same as Baby (Ansel Elgort) has a debt he owes to Doc after boosting his car years ago. The car accident that took the lives of his parents left him with tinnitus which he drowns out the "hum in his drum" by listening to various iPods he's accumulated containing his mother's favorite songs.
Despite working with shady criminals to pay off a debt along with his cut, Baby is a kind and gentle young man who takes care of his deaf foster father, Joseph (CJ Jones), in their small apartment. He soon meets Debora (Lily James) at the diner she works at as a waitress and decides to leave the life of crime as his debt to Doc is paid off. But of course, a life of crime isn't easy to leave as Doc threatens to hurt the two people Baby loves if he doesn't cooperate.
Complications arise the night before the "big heist" as the homicidal Bats (Jamie Foxx) kills a group of illegal arms dealers, believing them to be police officers. Against Doc's better judgment, Baby convinces him to go through with the heist involving Bats along with the married couple of Buddy (Jon Hamm) and Darling (Eiza González). Early in the morning, Baby attempts to slip away but is stopped by Buddy and Bats, who happened to discover his voice recorder. Accusations of him being an informant are quickly dispelled after listening to one of Baby's mixes.
In the aftermath of the heist, Bats and Darling have both been killed which leads to Buddy being hell-bent on revenge, placing the blame solely on Baby. He ends up at the diner moments before Baby arrives, focused on taking the life of the woman he loves, basically an eye-for-an-eye situation. After shooting Buddy in the diner, true love persuades Doc to give Baby and Debora enough money to start a new life.
Doc proceeds to get into a shootout with cops from the botched arms deal only to be hit by a police car driven by Buddy. The cat-and-mouse game in the parking garage comes to a conclusion with Buddy letting off gunshots near Baby's ear in order to deafen him. Mere seconds later, Buddy is disarmed by a crowbar-wielding Debora followed by a critical shot in the leg by Baby which sends him falling to a fiery death.
While trying to flee for their road trip, Baby and Debora are stopped by a police roadblock. Rather than drag her into his life of crime, Baby surrenders to the police to face the consequences of his actions. Despite positive testimonies from those closest to him and witnesses, Baby is sentenced to 25 years in prison, with a parole hearing after five. Postcard messages from Debora reveal his name to actually be Miles. When Baby is finally released, Debora is shown waiting for him, clearly ready for that long-awaited journey of just them, their music and the road.
Without a doubt, this was one of the absolute best movies to be released in 2017. Top Ten list, easily. It perfectly combined action, drama, a sweet soundtrack and a little bit of comedy as well. If you're a fan of music, fast cars and superb story-telling, then you must check out this film.
5/5 Stars - Extremely Recommended
PS: As a MARVEL fan, I feel compelled to mention that Netflix's version of The Punisher, Jon Bernthal, makes a brief appearance as Griff during the bank heist. Also, there's a hilarious scene during an armored truck heist involving a mask mix-up with JD (Lanny Joon) and Eddie No-Nose (Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers) as part of the revolving-door crew.

If your friends told you there’s nothing to do in Chicago, that’s probably because they still stay at home with mom. All jokes aside this past weekend was no different as the industry taste makers made it a pretty LiTTY weekend.
Mack 11 had a private listening party at FNF Studios Friday night for his new project “Mack Sauce.” It was 4/20 so you know it was LiT. The project was LiT, the vibe was LiT; in fact it was so LiT they sent off the smoke detector. Among the smoke cloud and good vibes were Mack’s family, friends, fans, and loyal supporters. I caught a couple of taste makers in the building too like Dough From the Go, CEO of Stack or Starved, and rising dj, DJ Mile High.
Now the project meets and raises expectations for the next project. But let’s focus on this project for now, hosted by Dj Bandz, “Mack Sauce” is a LiT HiT from start to finish. The 13 track project features more of Chicago’s rising talents Edai 600, Valee, HoodRich Pablo Juan, and ZMoney. What’s your favorite track? Check it out and let us know.
This week, the Almost There Crew talks Black Lives Matter, the recent controversy at Starbucks, the NBA Playoffs, swearing etiquette, and more.

Verne Troyer -- best known for playing Mini-Me in the 'Austin Powers' comedies, and for being one of the shortest men in the world -- has died.
Verne died Saturday, according to a statement from his family. We'd been told he was on some form of life support since being taken to the hospital earlier this month after cops got a report he was drunk and suicidal, and was treated for possible alcohol poisoning.
Verne's family says during the recent adversity, "he was baptized while surrounded by his family."
Troyer was born with the genetic disorder known as achondroplasia dwarfism, but said growing up on a farm in Michigan he was never treated differently by his parents than his average-sized siblings.
Verne began his Hollywood career in 1994 as a stunt double for Baby Bink in the film "Baby's Day Out." He then landed small roles in "Men in Black" and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" ... before making it big as Mini-Me in 1999's "Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me."
He continued to land bit roles in comedies and appeared on many popular reality shows over the years ... like "Celebrity Juice," "Celebrity Wife Swap," and "The Surreal Life."
Verne was 49.

Today, on the most glorious of holidays, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) use the government new official form of communications, Twitter, to announce his plans to introduce a bill to decriminalize marijuana on a federal level, thus “removing the barriers to state legalization efforts.”
While nine states and Washington D.C. have officially legalized recreational use of marijuana, and 29 states have approved of use for medicinal purposes, federal laws still make it 100% illegal. In fact, since 1970, weed has been consider as harmful as harsh drugs such as cocaine, and therefor bring the same harsh penalties if you get caught with it.
“It’s time to allow states, once and for all, to have the power to decide what works best for them,” Schumer tweeted. “I have long believed that states should function as their own laboratories of democracy. My bill is a step in the right direction aimed at removing the barriers to state legalization efforts.”
How far the bill will go remains to be seen but this has to be a step in the right direction. Until the right thing happens, at least we still have 4/20. Happy Green Day!
