1. Rashid Hadee — Hadee To the Xtreme (Free Download).

    Chi-Town – still musically fertile as ever, with the latest from Rashid Hadee providing just one slab of evidence.

    Those unfamiliar with Hadee need look no further than to Hadee To The Xtreme , his impressive Xtreme-produced EP. Maybe it’s the sped-up soul samples or the actual timbre of his voice, but one listen to “Another Year” evokes the early output of a certain Chicago-bred emcee with a penchant for exotic cars and Armenian socialites. (Let’s be clear, that’s definitely a compliment.) Give the whole thang a chance, but our immediate pick is the Meters-fueled “Clap Your Hands.”
