DCG Brothers Make Massive Moves in “The Biggest”

Published

on

With magnetic personalities that few in the Chicago scene can match, the DCG Brothers, comprised of DCG Shun & DCG Bsavv, bring a refreshing dose of personality into the drill scene. Documenting their rise as it unfolds without shying away from the raw realities of the South Side streets that raised them, the DCG Brothers share their latest video single, “The Biggest.” Over ominous synths weaved into acoustic strings and spattering kick drums, producer BWolf201’s haunting instrumental provides a fitting canvas for the brothers’ hushed, villainesque flow as they deliver their cautionary flexes: “My opps thinking it’s playtime/I got some dice and I’m finna shake mine.”

The video for “The Biggest” gives testament to the strength of the brothers’ connection to the Windy City even as they continue to reach new heights with their music. Posted outside Chicago’s United Center with a fleet of black SUVs, the brothers keep their community close–including fellow Chitown riser PGF Nuk, who makes a cameo appearance. As the video cuts to footage of the duo bringing their infectious energy to the Summer Smash festival stage, they jump in the crowd to take videos with fans while performing and stop to capture a quick cameo from fellow Chicago native, Lil Zay Osama, showing their immutable love for the city

Earlier this year, the DCG Brothers shared Jungle Life, an accomplished, 14-track mixtape that established the duo as one of the most exciting acts in their hometown. Home to the hit single “Stomp,” featuring Chicago legend G Herbo (1.8 million YouTube views), Jungle Life takes a raw, unfiltered look at the group’s home neighborhood, while showcasing the percolating chemistry that helped them escape their circumstances. “Growing up in a real jungle around savage and seeing crazy things, basically meeting different types of people and associating them with animals,” say the DCG BROTHERS. “RATS, SNAKES, GORILLAS, & EVERYDAY IT’S A SURVIVAL IN THE JUNGLE.” Featuring additional appearances from BIG30B-Lovee, and frequent collaborator MsavvJungle Life has earned nearly 15 million streams since its release and it is available everywhere via No More Heroes/Atlantic Records.

With much more music, and plenty more creative videos, and with the backing of No More Heroes and Atlantic Records, there’s no limit to the heights the DCG BROTHERS will reach.

Emmy-nominated educator turned entertainer, Dee-1 (@Dee1music) addresses critics and fans alike in the official music video for the Danny Beats-produced single “Lines Drawn,” following his viral interview on Sway In The Morning centered around industry hypycrosy. Filmed by Tufts University‘s own Jalen Hill, a student enrolled in the New Orleans native’s “The Intersection of Hip Hop and Social Change” course, the timely track and its accompanying visual postdate Dee’s previously released album UNO. Serving as the first official leak from his forthcoming LP From The Hood To Harvard, the song is a beacon of light as unfavorable headlines engulf online media.

“I did this song as a response to the industry being so shaken by me drawing a line in the sand and saying that we need some accountability for the messages we’re glorifying inside Hip-Hop. This is part one, there’s more on the way. A shift is happening from a genre and cultural perspective,” says the National Social Emotional Learning Consultant in a press statement to Medium Creative Agency about the release.

Award-winning rapper. educator, host, activist, business owner, and keynote speaker are synonymous with Louisiana‘s Dee-1. The Nasir “Nas” Jones Hip Hop Fellow at Harvard University is a Billboard Top 10 charting, game-changing MC with a persona to match his penmanship. He’s transitioned from being a middle school math teacher in The Boot to a Hip-Hop heavyweight with much more to accomplish. He has released 10 albums and 21 projects thus far in his career. 

Dee-1’s music is part of a bigger lifestyle movement called Mission Vision, which centers around three core principles: Be Real. Be Righteous. Be Relevant. In 2020, Dee received the prestigious NAACP “Power of Influence Award,” highlighting his community activism and commitment to inspiring the youth. In 2021, he was nominated for an Emmy Award for his work on “The Manhattan Project,” but he lost to Michelle Obama. Later that year, Dee was appointed to the “Louisiana Council for the Success of Black Men and Boys” by Governor John Bel Edwards, making him the first rapper in Louisiana history to become a governor’s appointee.

Never one to stop working, the St. Louis native shares a brand new video for “Free My N****a,” her new single. “Free My N***a” is a brash and infectious banger, as Sexyy makes an impassioned plea to law enforcement to let her baby daddy come home.

Songs like Hellcats SRTs and Female Gucci Mane exude an irrepressible bad b*tch energy, combining Sexyy’s crisp wordplay with an addictive drawling delivery that has become her signature. The mixtape earned a sterling 8.0 review from Pitchfork, who wrote that the mixtape “sets the tone for what she hopes is the nastiest, sweatiest, and freakiest summer since the smartphone came along” and “…30 minutes of straight-up standing-on-the-table raps. There are a handful of songs on here that are bound to be summertime anthems.” Home to other hits like “Looking For The H*es (Ain’t My Fault),” and “Hellcats SRTs,” blessed with a remix featuring Lil DurkHood Hottest Princess is climbing the Billboard 200, where it reached a new peak of #75 this week, and Apple Music’s charts, where it is currently sitting at #7 on the Hip-Hop albums chart and #12 overallHood Hottest Princess is available everywhere via Open Shift/gamma.

Sexyy’s viral rise quickly fomented success on the touring front. After a viral performance at Rolling Loud Miami, Sexyy Red earned an invitation to open on tour for her biggest fan, Drake, during his It’s All A Blur Tour” with 21 Savage. Sexyy’s first headlining tour, the “Hood Hottest Princess Tour,” sold out many dates within minutes of its initial onsale, including a 3,000-cap show in NYC and a 4,850-cap show in Chicago. The tour criss-crossed the U.S. for dozens of dates–including 24 sold out dates–including a massive sold out hometown show at the 8,000-capacity Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis. In all, Sexyy’s first-ever headlining show sold an estimated 70k tickets, making her one of the hottest draws in the genre in 2023.
