PRLog - May 2, 2013 - CHICAGO -- In the very recent years, Chicago has become a popular city for a new kind of hip hop. The typical "ChiTown" artist is a "trap rapper". A term that is used where rappers showcase lyrics about drugs, money, & women with uptempo beats. Why would this type of music be the prime music of Chicago?
Two words, Chief Keef. A 16 year old rapper named Chief Keef emerged from Chicago in 2011 with his hit song "Bang" that captivated millions of teens. Since then he has had a great deal of success (now signed to Interscope Records) and he is responsible for the Chicago style of music. Since he has emerged he has spent time in jail, and one of his friends Lil Reese (another rapper) was arrested days ago.
Recently, another artist has emerged from the windy city named J'Real Precise. He is the total opposite of a "trap rapper". He believes in music with a message and that is pleasing to the ear. J'Real is incomparable as there are many different types of artist. Not only is he a rapper, but he is a singer, ghostwriter, and teen activist. He gives back to the community regularly but just have a passion for music that isn't "poisoning our youth".
"Step Ya Game Up", (a single off of his upcoming mixtape "AutoGraphing The Contract" on June 7th) was released May 1st, 2013. A single that is making a statement to say the least. Going against his home city's style of music. "You should know that i'm against all the typical rappers, the industry's revelation like the biblical chapters, i come from the go where bullets fly in the wind, but i ain't proud of the chi til change lye and it ends"
You can tell that this kid has good upbringing. In the video, you also hear Mr.Precise mention a few celebrities negatively, Soulja Boy, Waka Flocka, & Lil B. You can hear his feelings by the tone of his voice that he is tired of the "typical rapper" getting a lot of spotlight. "All we got is Waka's, Bang Bang flocka's, we need some surge someone to bring that thunder like Ibaka"
This is a song that makes you want to hear the next song to see what else he is creating. He is definitely a DIFFERENT artist that music hasn't seen.......yet.
