Episode 27 - Hip-Hop & Rap in the Chi with Wilhelm Duke
Da Chicago 60
HEY CHICAGO! This week on DAAA PODCAST we have a very special guest, Wilhelm Duke, a local Chicago hip-hop and rap artists who has been making some noise in the Chicago scene. Wilhelm and the C60 crew discuss hip-hop and rap in the CHI. Ron Russell, a.k.a. Vezaman, from the C60 crew and Wilhelm go back-and-forth talking about how the industry has evolved and what its like to come up as an artist in the hip-hop game nowadays versus a decade or more ago. Wilhelm Duke promotes his group Ever Evolved and we talk about hip-hops culture versus its reality. We also talk about RATS in the city; Chicago is rated the rattiest metropolitan area... and we are not just talking about the politicians. Obama and Trump both visit Chicago for very different reasons and yet the Chicago Police Department still has to cope, especially after top cop Eddie Johnson just got a "no confidence vote" from the Police Union. David Ross is the new manager of Da Cubs; Da Bears lose to the Chargers and all mayhem ensues. All of this and of course the Jagoff of Da Week on this episode of Da Chicago 60 Podcast. Stay tuned every week as we bring you the stories and talk with the talented people, artists, musicians, comedians, and business owners that make up this great Midwestern town that we love that starts with a "C" ends with an "O" and has "HICAG" in the middle of it... CHICAGO! As always, BEAR DOWN and F*&% da Packers!
