Chicago Rules the World!

Sorry for yet another extended absence. This presidential election has dominated so much of my time that I have neglected reading my usual rotation of music blogs and magazines in favor of obsessively reading the Huffington Post and Talking Points Memo. As a result, I am embarrassingly out of the loop with almost any new music that's come out in the last two months. Luckily, this election is over and I can cancel those relocation plans to Sweden (hooray socialism!) because BARACK OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT ELECT!!!

It's been a strange crazy journey to get here, but for the first time in over eight years I feel hopeful for the future of our country. I guess all we needed was Chicago's favorite son to wake up the silent masses and convince us that all hope wasn't lost. In celebration of that wonderful moment, here's a track by two of Chicago's best hip hop artists, Mikey Rocks and Chuck Inglish (otherwise known as The Cool Kids) with an assist from producer extraordinaire 9th Wonder.

If you're a fan of the Kids' lazy flow, but always wanted to hear it matched with some next level beats then this is the jam for you. "The Delivery Man" has absolutely noting to do with Obama other than both are symbols of the best that Chicago has to offer. One is doing its part to change the rap game while the other is doing his thing to redefine the political game. So far, I like what I see from both.
